Sparky Linux 2020.05 Announced with Linux Kernel 5.6.7
The team at Sparky Linux has just announced that the May snapshot is now live and users can download the 2020.05 build based on Debian testing “Bullseye.”
The new release obviously comes with a series of important change and one of the most notable is the upgrade to Linux kernel 5.6.7. The Sparky unstable repos come with Linux kernel 5.6.10 & 5.7-rc4.
Furthermore, there are improvements for UEFI systems with Secure Boot.
“Added additional support of Sparky installation on UEFI machines with Secure Boot: the live system should be launched with Secure Boot off as before; but after installation the Secure Boot can be turned on; both installers: Calamares and Sparky’s Advanced provides support of such installation,” the dev team explains in a changelog (which you can also find embedded below).
There are obviously several other fixes, including for Xfce, as well as new packages for all ISO images, like pulseaudio-module-bluetooth and fuse3 instead of fuse.
