    Bio-Linux 8.0.8
    Submitted by Tony Travis; posted on Wednesday, September 06, 2017

    Submitter

    Release notes:

    The Bio-Linux 8.0.8 point release contains an updated Linux kernel to improve support for modern WiFi chipsets in particular and all the packages have been updated. This release is mainly intended to improve the use of Bio-Linux on a USB-stick or DVD. However, the 8.0.8 release also has "mdadm" pre-installed to make installation and rescue of Bio-Linux instances on "md" RAID simpler.

    PLEASE NOTE: Bio-Linux 8.0.7 instances installed to hard disk do NOT need to be updated using the Bio-Linux 8.0.8 point release. Bio-Linux is normally configured for unattended upgrades of core packages and will be upgraded automatically in situ. A manual update will be necessary to upgrade ALL packages installed:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade

    Changelog:

    The Bio-Linux 8.0.8 point release was created using Tim Booth's "build-bio-linux" scripts updated and modified by Will McCaffery and Tony Travis:

    Bio-Linux Live DVD released
    Submitted by Daniel Swan; posted on Tuesday, December 20, 2005

    NEBC (NERC Environmental Bioinformatics Centre, Oxford UK) have released Bio-Linux Live - a complete Bio-Linux release on DVD based on Knoppix.

    Bio-Linux Live is a great solution for working at home or anywhere you don't have access to bioinformatics applications like those on a Bio-Linux machine. It emulates the look and feel of working on a full Bio-Linux system without requiring installation.

    For full details and to download the ISO please visit:
