It is time again to release the new SolydXK ISOs!
All SolydXK ISOs are fully updated, including the latest kernel release with the Meltodown vulnarability patch. The ISOs come with a system configuration tool called “SolydXK System Settings”. Following is a list of features added since the 201707 releases:
- Device Driver Manager (DDM) has been integrated.
- Debian Plymouth Manager has been integrated.
- Add new partitions to Fstab.
- Safely remove old kernel packages.
After installation you can choose additional packages from the Welcome Screen but unfortunately, I had to remove the business application LetoDMS (document management system) as installable from the Welcome Screen. It installs just fine but I haven’t been able to get it to work. I’ve removed the package from our own repository but if you need an Open Source DMS, I recommend to take a look at SeedDMS.
For our German users I’ve decided to officially maintain the German localized ISOs of SolydX 64-bit and SolydK 64-bit. You can download them from the Localized Editions page.
Not all mirrors have synchronized yet but I’ll add them as soon as they come available. The Community editions (32-bit) and the Enthusiast’s editions (based on Debian Buster) will follow later and I will post that as soon as they are released.

Well, The Netherlands didn’t even make it into the top 10 of site visits. It seems that I have work to do to let my fellow countrymen know that a Dutch operating system exists 😉
