    xx One-Off Legacy Nvidia Release - 10/13/2014
    October 13, 2014, 06:35:42 PM by admin
    Two one-off legacy Nvidia releases of Bluestar Linux are now available for download from the sourceforge site:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/bluestarlinux/files/distro/bluestar-linux-nvidia/

    The iso files are:

    bluestar-linux-3.16.4-developer-nv304xx-2014.10.11-x86_64.iso
    bluestar-linux-3.16.4-developer-nv340xx-2014.10.11-x86_64.iso

    These installers will only load the proprietary nvidia drivers. The nouveau driver is blacklisted. Also note that both are 64-bit installers. There will be no 32-bit release.

    I've added a new technical article on 915resolution that reveals an important insight into its use and application. I discovered this quite by accident while trying to resolve an issue for a user, and it's not something that has been explained anywhere I've searched.

    I hope this helps out anyone who is struggling trying to get 915resolution/uvesafb to work.

    xx Next Release - Notes
    October 02, 2014, 05:28:04 PM by admin
    The next release will be the developer edition. I haven't performed the build yet, but I intend to swap out eclipse for netbeans. However, netbeans is 60M bigger than eclipse, so I'll have to remove something to make up for the extra space required to fit netbeans into the build. At the moment, I'm thinking of jettisoning maxima. If anyone has a problem with this choice, please let me know in the next couple of days.

    Cheers

    September 29, 2014, 03:15:00 PM by admin
    Another update to bash was released today - v4.3.027. This is the official sync with upstream changes. the changelog can be found here:

    https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/trunk?h=packages/bash&id=6b7338eb3993d77f2a3eb332ca9783b36ca7f096

    These changes should address the "shellshock" or "bashbug" security issues.
