with just over one week we have a new update for you. We updated Mesa to v17.2 series, which includes new drivers and other goodies, updated some of our kernels, added latest KDE Frameworks v5.38 plus having GCC v7.2 as our latest compiler. If you have difficulties to update, please install additional multilib packages of gcc first, so a full upgrade is possible.
Additionally we have the latest VirtualBox and Bluez packages plus Python and CertBot renewed. KDE locales got prepared to support Plasma v5.11 series. Last but not least we fixed some BTRFS and LOCALES issues we had within Calamares, when installed for example with German locales.
With this update, however, we also removed the support of OpenRC. For all users who had used that init-system we recommend to either convert back to systemd or try the new project Artix Linux, which is focused on OpenRC only and is also based on Arch Linux. They already have great migration documentations.
Also we decided to ditch linux312 and linux48 series. Please move to another kernel series, if you still use those. No extramodule updates will be provided for these series.
Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.
