Next version of Raminos Linux (2.0 xfce openrc) is about 33% done. Main work is going on it and it may have some limited online-update capability by the "package manager" (downloading and updating the package). Sourceforge.net mirrors are reachable by direct download access.
I hope that I will be able to update all of the packages to the newest versions and "import" it into 2.0.
There are some updates for current version. Due to lack of ftp server access you have to install updates manually one by one.
Download the package you want to update:
+"openrc" package update fixes bootup stalling at "Cleaning /var/run"
+"fontconfig" package update fixes ugly fonts in browsers
+rest of the updates are browser and kernel updates
--there are some library problems which will be fixed (don't know when)
These updates may be installed by starting a root session or changing session to root by "sudo bash" command
The package update command is:
pacman -U package_filename
If you update or install kernel packages using the previous command, then you should run the following command after the update process:
grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg
This command adds new kernel versions to bootloader configuration.
