2011-01-09 NEW • Distribution Release: Alpine Linux 2.1.4
Alpine Linux Jeff Bilyk has announced the release of Alpine Linux 2.1.4, a community-developed operating system designed for x86 routers, firewalls, VPNs, VoIP and servers:
Alpine Linux is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Alpine Linux with anyone for absolutely nothing.
Alpine Linux was designed with security in mind. It has proactive security features, such as PaX and SSP, that prevent security holes from being exploited.
Alpine Linux uses the uClibc C library and all of the base tools from BusyBox. These are normally found on embedded systems and are smaller than the tools found on GNU/Linux systems.
"We are pleased to announce the Alpine Linux 2.1.4 release. This release includes an update to 2.6.35.10-based kernels. Hyper-V fixes have been applied to these kernels. Boot scripts have been updated so that if at least one network interface starts successfully, then services that depend on networking will be started. In previous releases (since Alpine 1.9.0) all network interfaces had to start successfully for this to happen. Also, BusyBox contains a fix for a long-standing bug that caused crontab files to mysteriously disappear." Read the rest of the release notes for further details and upgrade instructions. http://alpinelinux.org/wiki/Release_Not ... pine_2.1.4

Download all three versions (MD5): http://alpinelinux.org/wiki/Downloads
Or standard at www.distrowatch.com
alpine-2.1.4-x86.iso (193MB, SHA1).

Alpine Linux Jeff Bilyk has announced the release of Alpine Linux 2.1.5, a small distribution designed for x86 routers, firewalls, VPNs, VoIP boxes and servers: "We are pleased to announce the Alpine Linux 2.1.5 release. This release includes an update to use 2.6.35.11-based kernels. Various packages have bug fixes from upstream. Among these are Asterisk 1.8.3, Samba 3.5.8, Dovecot 2.0.11, BIND 9.7.3 and OpenSSL 1.0.0d. The package manager has fixes that solve issues when upgrading to edge. Important note when upgrading from version 1.10: the 2.0 series introduces an ABI-incompatible version of uClibc with NPTL threading support. This means that you cannot mix packages from older releases with 2.0. To upgrade you will need to make sure that you only have 2.0 repositories in your /etc/apk/repositories list."
