BluestarLinux 5.19.1

From the release notes: First, I have to tell y'all that, so far, the 5.19 kernel is quite a bit speedier at booting up than its predecessor. Even KDE/Plasma seems to be a little faster when starting up. Also, with this release, you may notice (or not) that I've included fewer desktop themes to try to get the size of the iso image down below 4gb. That required a remix of artwork packages 8 and 9 (which is why you're getting both updates). I've also added 3 new packages - udftools, qemu-img and rclone; all useful if you need to use the live system disk for system rescue. I'll be going over what packages are included in the live system for the next release to try to get the image size down another 200mb or so - I am aiming for minimal impact, so i have to go through the packages carefully. Unfortunately, as bugs are fixed and features added, software grows. The current package list for the live system is actually smaller than the original, because some packages simply disappeared over time as they became unnecessary, or no longer needed as a dependency. Despite a shorter package list, the 64-bit image file has grown by about 800mb over the past few years. The kernel package itself is now approaching 200mb plus the associated firmware packages - it used to be about 75mb. In any case, I felt I needed to give y'all a heads-up that a few packages are going to have to be stripped out to get the size down a little. Official announcement Download BluestarLinux
