BluestarLinux 6.0.7

There are a few changes to note with this release, starting with the bootloader. On bootup, the first thing you'll notice is that the 2 entries for gma3600 are now gone. This may ultimately be a temporary change, but some time during the linux-5.x.x cycle, uvesafb/v86d/915resolution stopped working. There is a single bug report out there for this that was opened in July of this year to which nobody has been assigned and no answers have been given. The report links the breakdown to the hardening of the kernel which was going on during the 5.x.x cycle. I had been hoping that something would change, or get fixed, and the gma3600 entries would become functional again, but I've seen no movement on this issue. Rebuilt versions of the two packages (uvesafb-dkms, which includes v86d, and 915resolution-static) are still available in the bslx repository, but the boot options have been backed out of the distro and the installer. I will continue to monitor this situation in case there's any response to the bug report. Official announcement Download BluestarLinux
