(privacy-enhanced live OS) has been released to 2021.02-rc !

Quite big updates:
- Tencent (yes the notorious yet popular and IM tool around communities) is experimentally added. It runs under which should well restrict its behaviors. ๐Ÿ˜‚

- Other bloated applications (those installed in binary form) are also started under firejail .


Yes! Finally I figured out why -desktop doesnโ€™t start on my live system ...

itโ€™s caused by the package manager (app+person) did not do the symlinking after installation. haha ๐Ÿ˜†

Nonetheless i still didnโ€™t figure out why it had done the symlinks in the previous packaging/installing...

Okay the root cause is the notorious bloated all-in-one offline javascript app (saying electron) , that makes so many symlinks?

Duh... it took me a lot of time to build and test new versions of . ๐Ÿ™„

Forgot to include some new apps; refine some desktop files, etc. Firejail has new release for fixing security issues.

Many trivial things.

me spent several hours on learning and writing a profile for , the popular instant messaging app yet a notorious that many users love.

It will be shipped with soon! ๐Ÿ˜

I am proud to announce the release of my -enhanced live OS (: a distro based on ): 2021.01.

I am very happy excited that is working now thanks to Slackware-current as it has updated kernel to 5.10.x. Hooray ๐Ÿฅ‚

Other updates: and some sorts of tools for are added. And right, .16 has new look, ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ great.

Happy new year ๐ŸŽŠ (from UTC +8)
On the eve of the great new year, I did :

- upgrade my good old 14.2 system as well as compiling 5.10

- switch to a new support room for my Linux in network: :privacytools.io


me going to release a new version of my own live distro: , with new apps added: -bridge, -cli . And -desktop has been shipped with uninstalled package.

Note that 1) it should be installed every when the system starts (this is a tricky way thay makes the app work) .

2) Wireguard still doesnโ€™t work under live environment.

๐Ÿ˜‚ powered by :slackware:


NOTICE: itโ€™s still very tricky that -desktop doesnโ€™t work unless a re-installation under the live runtime. So.... re-install it with a single command . I am sorry about this.
