The Arch Linux project has shipped their monthly install media update for the distribution that's popular with Linux enthusiasts.
This month's monthly install media update for the rolling-release distribution isn't particularly exciting aside from updated packages, including switching to the Linux 3.6 kernel
The three changes pointed out in the Arch release announcement
come down to:
- First media with Linux 3.6.
- copytoram=n can be used to not copy the image to RAM on network boot. This is probably unreliable but an option for systems with very low memory.
- cowfile_size boot parameter mainly for persistent COW on VFAT. See the README file for details.
