Kiwi Linux 8.04 Has Been Released

Kiwi 8.04 is a 386 Desktop CD derivative based on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. As you know, Kiwi Linux is a modified Ubuntu live CD for the i386 architecture. It includes Romanian and Hungarian localisations, multimedia codecs, encrypted DVD support, Flash and Java plugins for Firefox, PPPoE GUI for accessing local Internet services (Clicknet and RDS) and write support for NTFS partitions.

This new release installs packages necessary for playing restricted audio, video and Flash formats by default and supports the Speedtouch 330 USB ADSL modem.

The list of available languages is English, French, German, Hungarian and Romanian. The default package selection is altered somewhat to be more familiar to Windows users: Thunderbird is the default mail client and Audacious the music player.

Other additions to the CD are Compiz extra settings GUI, unrar and mstt corefonts, and a graphical tool for restoring GRUB boot menus lost after installing other Operating Systems (OS).
The Medibuntu repositories are enabled by default to allow installing w32codecs, Skype and Google Earth among others.

The archive where its few changes are kept and which is a GPG-signed mirror of our archive in Launchpad is enabled by default.
