4MLinux 21.0 Operating System Enters Development, First Beta Ready for Testing

Now that most of you are enjoying the 4MLinux 20.0 release on your personal computers, Mr. Konojacki already started working on the next major release, and he just pushed the Beta of the Core Edition of 4MLinux 21.0, on which the rest of the 4MLinux flavors will be based.

It appears that 4MLinux 21.0 will still be using the same long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series, which was updated to version 4.4.30 for today’s 4MLinux 21.0 Core Edition Beta release. Under the hood, the GNU/Linux distribution is shipping with GNU C Library (Glib2) 2.24, BusyBox 1.25.0, and GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) 6.1.0.

“This is a core system (only a few MB in size) for the 4MLinux 21.0 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 4.4.30, GNU C Library 2.24, and BusyBox 1.25.0. The 4MLinux 21.0 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 6.1.0 to compile programs designed for the i686 architecture,” said Zbigniew Konojacki in today’s release announcement.

As usual with any 4MLinux release, the operating system is designed for 32-bit (i686) hardware architectures.
