Grml 2017.05

Linux Format - - NEWSDESK -

A new re­lease of the Grml live disc De­bian-based dis­tro has been re­leased and is ready to down­load. The new ver­sion swaps file-rc as the init soft­ware to sys­temd. As the re­lease an­nounce­ment states that “grml-live (the build sys­tem for cre­at­ing Grml-based Linux live sys­tems) still sup­ports non-sys­temd sys­tems us­ing file-rc, though we don’t plan to main­tain this in the long run”. This re­lease also shifts the 32bit build from i586 to i686.

For more in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing the thought process be­hind switch­ing from file-rc to sys­temd, head to the re­lease notes, avail­able to read at https://grml.org/changel­ogs/ README-grml-2017.05.

Grml 2017.05 jumps on the sys­temd init band­wagon. If there is such a thing.
