BOSS Testing Kernel is out (

Postby alan » Mon Oct 27, 2008 5:15 pm

Hi Guys,

I was working on an updated based kernel for BOSS this weekend and its ready. In three flavors like last, amd64, i386 and i386-bigmem. If you have upgraded your system to Parsix Boss, please get and install the new kernel and report any problems you see on it.

Thanks for your hard work!
I have a question too. When will Boss reposetory upgrade to Gnome 2.24?
And something else! Why Synaptic forces me to install Texlive while upgrading?!

The nvidia kernel module works

"nvidia-glx" + "nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-parsix-4" worked right out of the box. (xorg.conf was already configured to use the nvidia driver.)

That's a first for me on a Debian-based distro!
