SystemRescueCd version 1.2.3 released
The developers of SystemRescueCd have now released version 1.2.3 of the French mini--Linux distribution. The new SystemRescueCd release updates a range of tools and includes a firmware package missing from the previous version (sys-kernel/linux-firmware). The developer has updated the alternative kernels to Linux 188.8.131.52.
The lean distribution does an excellent job of rescuing data and restoring systems on both Linux and Windows computers. The kernel supports the file systems commonly used by both operating systems (Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, VFAT, NTFS and ISO9660, ReiserFS and Reiser4, the still shiny new Btrfs and XFS and JFS). It also includes a range of networking and partitioning tools. The Speakup screen reader included in the OS also makes it suitable for people with visual impairment. SystemRescueCd is licensed under the GPLv2.
