Announcement April 23, 2014: Evo/Lution: More Than 5000 Downloads Over 25 Day Period
Announcement April 21, 2014: Evo-0.9-12a.iso is available for download on SourceForge. Notice the “a”. This indicates that this is a well tested good version with nearly 1300 downloads so far. This iso available at SourceForge has been verified via md5sum.
Announcement April 14, 2014: It was discovered today, the Evo-0.9-12.iso previously available on SourceForge for download was corrupt. During the upload process, something happened resulting in iso corruption. The md5sum did not match the tested version on my machine. My apologies, and sorry for any inconveniences.
A new upload process will be implemented to prevent a repeat of this error in the future. A text file containing the proper md5sum will be uploaded to SourceForge prior to the iso image. This text file will be labeled as follows:
Every new iso released will be verified for correct md5sum after uploading to verify CD image integrity.
The Evo-0.9-12.iso was removed from SourceForge. This version will be re-upload to SourceForge as version Evo-0.9-12a.iso, following an upload first, of the md5sum verification file:
Please be sure to use the md5sum provided in the uploaded file before the one provided by SourceForge. If everything is correct, the checksum provided in the file will match the one provided by SourceForge, and it should also match the md5sum you get from the downloaded .iso.
Announcement April 6, 2014: Sent Linus Torvalds an email asking him to consider switching from Fedora to Arch using Evo/Lution to install. I read he prefers an “easy to install” Linux distro.
Announcement April 5, 2014: We’ve set up a new Evo/Lution Forum today. Lets please use the forum for all future discussion of Evo/Lution. Thanks, Jeff http://evolution.boardhost.com/index.php
Announcement April 4, 2014: Due to demand to include KDE in the Lution Arch Linux installer, as of today there is a separate Live CD to install KDE and Razor-QT. The new CD is Evo-QT-0.2.iso. I need testers and feedback for this new CD. More QT based systems possibly added in the future, depending on demand.
Announcement March 26, 2014: As of today, the name Fu-rch will no longer be used for this project. The installer is currently going through a re-branding process to remove all references to “Fu-rch”, and the name will be replaced with the new project name, “Evo/Lution”.
The new project name: The Evo/Lution Linux Project
The new live CD name: Evo
The new Arch GUI installer name: Lution
All future releases will reflect these name changes
The Fu-rch project has evolved from an idea, to something that is rapidly expanding and seems viable as a proper Linux project. This will require the former Fu-rch Project, now known as the Evo/Lution Linux Project, to make changes to keep up with demand, and properly support the new users.
A new website www.evolutionlinux.com is in the works. It will have everything in place to properly support the new users who used the Fu-rch GUI Installer, and those in the future who will use the Lution Graphical Installer, to install Arch.
The project direction, ideas and goals will remain unchanged. This name change is to eliminate any possible misconceptions or misunderstanding surrounding the former name. The Evo/Lution Linux project believes the new name more appropriately represents the current and future of this project. Sorry for any confusion or issues caused by the former name or the name change in general.
It’s been said that Unix/Linux, and specifically Arch Linux is
The operating system by developers for developers
Quotes from the Arch Linux Magazine article, Arch Is Not a Democracy :
Arch is really a “Cooperative Anarchy”
The Arch development team itself is a “Voluntary Oligarchy”
The Evo/Lution project is a paradigm shift opposing that view
Evo/Lution is for the users of Arch Linux
Our goal ….. Making Arch User Friendly and Easy
Our Motto ….. The operating system by the users for the users
The Evo live CD is an Arch based OS that cannot be installed. It is simply a platform to run the Lution installer.
The Lution GUI installer is made to install Arch Linux. It has options to install anything ranging from the Arch base, to base + the packages you select, including complete turn key desktop environments.
The installer downloads all the packages you select from the Arch repositories during the install process so you always end up with a current snapshot of Arch.
