4MRecover 11.0 BETA released.


4MRecover 11.0 in action

This initial release is based on 4MLinux 11.0 and TestDisk 6.14.

PhotoRec (the tool to recover lost files) is started automatically. Just close PhotoRec, and Midnight Commander will be opened so that you can manage your files. You can also execute "testdisk" (in Midnight Commander's shell prompt) if you are going to try to recover lost partitions.

Notes:
1) Despite its name, PhotoRec is able to recover many file formats (not only images).
2) Press the power-off button to quit 4MRecover (acpi daemon will start a script to cleanly shutdown your computer)

4MLinux 9.0 Allinone Edition FINAL released.


Partition Wizard in 4MLinux 9.0 FINAL

The status of the 4MLinux 9.0 series has been changed to STABLE. The final release has all the features included in 4MLinux 9.0 Rescue Edition, 4MLinux 9.0 Media Edition, 4MLinux 9.0 Server Edition, and 4MLinux 9.0 Game Edition
I do not use code names in 4MLinux, but if I did this would be "nerdy" for the 9.0 series. You can install development packages just in one click. Some of the packages (e.g. full versions of Python and Perl) can be used by both programmers and webmasters. An option to download and install the "vanilla" version of Clang with LLVM has also been added (more detailed info available here).
