Hello everybody,
I finally take a bit of time to experiment generating a 64bit ISO image, I have no 64bit hardware so I used an Amazon EC2 instance (that was pretty cool!) to do the job so here you have, the Ubuntu Mini Remix has a new release ready for you to download, be sure to check it out!

Ubuntu Mini Remix 10.04

If you want to create an Ubuntu based Linux distro keeping control on every single part of it? Instead of remastering an Ubuntu Desktop ISO try the Ubuntu Mini Remix and add just what you want, you’ll have a much cleaner result!

Ubuntu Mini Remix 10.04 is out today for free download!

UCK 2.0.12 is out!

I had a few hours to spend working on UCK so I’m publishing a new release right now :) here’s the changelog:

* GUI:
* splash notes were updated
* a new configuration screen was added to allow selecting which
languages will be available on the livecd boot splash (gfxboot).
This was necessary because the language packs codes do not match
gfxbook locales.
* the default gfxboot language can be chosen only between the
gfxboot available languages (easier selection).
* default gfxboot language selection was made mandatory

* Backend:
* a workaround for the chrooted gnome-terminal was implemented

Download UCK 2.0.12

UCK 2.0.11 is out

I’m really happy today, a brand new UCK version is freely available, here the nice changelog:

* GUI:
* ISO mime type check was removed because new Ubuntu ISOs
have “x-iso9660” mime type
* a bug with cd language selection was solved
(thanks to Wolf Geldmacher)

* Backend:
* .lz initrd support was added (thanks to Wolf Geldmacher)
* new isolinux configuration format is now supported
(thanks to Wolf Geldmacher)
* if a local copy of gfxboot-theme-ubuntu is found inside ~/tmp
it won’t be downloaded from bzr, allowing better customizations
(thanks to Wolf Geldmacher)
* gfxboot-theme-ubuntu source download routine was completely rewritten
using wget instead of bzr

But the most important thing is that Wolf Geldmacher, the guy who provided most of the patches for this release, is joining UCK development team, this is an awesome news!

So now hurry up and download UCK 2.0.11 while it’s hot!
