New GUI frontend for pacman coming up

Dated : 22 May, 2007

From now on, March Linux will concentrate on being a LnF (Lean and Fast) distrolet of Arch.

Currently, Jacman serves as the GUI frontend to pacman (package manager) in March. Jacman, despite being an excellent program, is quite heavy due to its JRE dependency.
I'v created PacKommander, a very simple GUI wrapper for pacman using Kommander, which shall replace Jacman in near future.

Version 0.0.2 (ALPHA) Uploaded

Finally, an uploadable ISO has been created!! The version 0.0.1 didn't pass the tests even in my own machine, so was never released. Besides, 0.0.1 didn't include many important packages.
Version 0.0.2 is still an ALPHA release, though! It has run quite well in a Virtual Box environment and on a small partition of my hard drive. I couldn't test the LILO boot-loader on my main machine simply because the other OSs installed use GRUB, and I'm not really familiar with LILO! LILO worked well in the VBox environ.
However, test runs on other machines must be made. The problem is I don't possess a spare one! That's why I'm uploading it. Please download the ISO, install, test and comment! (The size of ISO file is 556.1 MB on hard disk). Be sure to notify me of problems/bugs AND also your suggestions about how to get over them (I'm a NO-GEEK, remember!!! :D)

Version 0.0.2 (ALPHA) Uploaded
