The Chakra team is happy to announce the third release of the Chakra Euler series. This is a maintenance release to fix some installation issues and provide all the updated packages that landed in the stable repositories since the previous release. The main new feature is that our ISO now supports booting and installing on UEFI systems! Please follow the instructions carefully on how to achieve this.
We are aware that everybody is looking ahead into Plasma5 and we are working on the transition, but we believe it is too early for this to be shipped by default and decided to wait for a little bit longer until Plasma 5 has furthered matured and more KDE Applications have switched to Frameworks 5.
This ISO ships with the following notable packages and updates:
The extra repository, which is disabled by default, provides the must-have GTK-based applications and their dependencies. Kapudan, our desktop greeter which runs after the first boot, will allow you to enable it.
Please have in mind that our installer, Tribe, does not currently officially support RAID, LVM and GPT, although you might find some workarounds in our forums. There are also limitations in detecting hybrid cards, so on some systems you might experience a black screen when rebooting after the installation. To workaround this one can install using the free drivers and then switch manually to the proprietary ones.
To create reliable installation media, please follow the instructions on the wiki. Chakra ISO images do not support unetbootin and DVDs need to be burned at a speed no higher than 4×.
