4MLinux 9.0 BETA released.

Default desktop in 4MLinux 9.0

The main features in this release are maintenance (MBR and GPT partitioning software, 4MLinux Backup Scripts 9.0, ClamAV 0.98.3), multimedia (MPlayer SVN-r37146, FFmpeg Git-2014-04-10), a mini server (FTP, HTTP, SSH, SFTP), and mystery (a set of small games). The X Window System is based on X.Org Server 1.15.1, Mesa 10.1.3, JWM 2.2.2, and the FOX toolkit 1.6.49. Fully automatic installation of the "vanilla" versions of LibreOffice 4.2.4, Java RE 7u55, and VirtualBox 4.3.12 is also supported. The size of the ISO image is about 55 MB.

  1. Seems amazing. Is it based on any other distro I might be familiar with? What is the format of the packages for installing software?

  2. Independent distro.
    See point 3.4 here:
    And also:

  3. This is amazing. Great job on putting this together.

    1. How do you install flash so you can view flash in the QupZilla browser?
    2. Suggest you add a tool where you can create an ISO of the newly created current environment.
    3. Are you planning on creating a 64 bit version of this where we can use the 64 bit version of VirtualBox?

    1. Thanks :-)
      1) Impossible (because 4MLinux does not include GTK). Try Firefox (or SeaMonkey) in Allinone Edition that uses Wine to run. SMTube is available, too.
      2) I will consider that.
      3) Not in the nearest future.

  4. great distro, can u please start to give exe installer so that i can install it inside my windows laptop, just like puppy linux does.
