4MLinux 41.0 Now Stable and Ready for Use

Dec 05, 2022

The developers behind 4MLinux have changed the status of 41.0 to STABLE, which means it's ready for prime time.

4MLinux 41 is now available for general use and includes plenty of updates. There are new applications to be had, including FileZilla, XPaint, and GNU Paint, a command-line tool for managing NVM-Express partitions, a small collection of games, LibreOffice 7.4.3, GNOME Office (AbiWord, GIMP, Gnumeric), Dropbox, Firefox, Chromium, Thunderbird, the Audacious music player, VLC, SMPlayer, Wine 7.18, and more.

With the release of 4MLinux 41.0, it is now possible to install on a BTRFS partition, with the help of Syslinux acting as a boot manager.

This lightweight Linux distribution ships with kernel 6.0.6 and Mesa 22.1.4, and uses JWM (Joe's Window Manager) as the desktop interface.

There are three different versions that can be downloaded and used: Full, Core, and Server. The server edition makes it easy to set up a full LAMP stack with Apache 2.4.54, MariaDB 10.6.11, PHP 5.6.40/7.4.33, Python 2.7.18/3.10.6, Perl 5.36.0, and Ruby 3.1.2.
