End-Of-Life
« on: Fri Jun 08 13:24:41 2018 »
Is there any official end-of-life schedule for NuTyx releases?

I am hoping that NuTyx will continue to support its older versions even after newer ones are released.

You can still use latest 8.x version and latest 9.x version on http://downloads.tuxfamily.org/nutyx/x86_64 server. So yes support continues

Thank you.  Are there any drop-dead dates for EOL though?  I am just trying to get some idea of how long the support cycle might be.

Code: [Select]

I share my work with anybody interested to discover another way of using Linux. I have a lot of fun of doing it.

Rsync all the package to your own server and you will have your NuTyX LTS

1. Install http server
Code: [Select]
get apache apache.service
2. sudo rsync the 64 bits packages (replace with i686 for 32 bits)
Code: [Select]
rsync -av --delete rsync://downloads.nutyx.org/nutyx/x86_64/ /srv/www/x86_64/
3. Start the service
Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start
4. Change your cards config:
Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i "s@downloads.nutyx.org@localhost@" /etc/cards
Done

So I take it that if you run out of space, there is a chance that older releases of NuTyX might not have public repo access anymore.   Fair enough.  If I ultimately choose NuTyX, I might consider helping out a bit with that issue since I would be dependent on it a bit myself.
