[Image: 210nchu.png]

Clement Lefebvre and the community behind the Linux Mint project announced last night on the official blog the immediate availability of the final release of Linux Mint 6 (Felicia) Fluxbox Community Edition. Being based on Xubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex), this version is powered by Linux kernel 2.6.27, X.Org 7.4 and Fluxbox 1.0.0. Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox includes a brand new menu system called Mint-FM2, a new display manager called Slim (replacement for GDM), and many other nice tweaks.

"We have integrated some brand new features into the Live CD which will hopefully make it easier to install Linux Mint Fluxbox Community Edition on lower spec hardware. Firstly, we have disabled some largely unnecessary services in the Live CD environment. These include acpid, acpi-support, anacron, apmd, atd, bluetooth, cron, cups, dns-clean, mpd, powernowd, powernowd.early, readahead, readahead-desktop, samba and ufw. This should provide for a snappier Live CD. Secondly, once booted, the Live CD now provides you with three options for what kind of Live CD session you would like to start." - said the Linux Mint Fluxbox team in the official release notes.
