Distro Update: eAR OS 1.09a

Peter Thomsen, the lead developer of eAR OS, a Ubuntu-based multimedia distro, has made available for download an updated version of the distro. This update comes with a major modification to the functionality of eAR Media Center, the addition of a security package, and a few other tweaks to the OS.

In the previous release of eAR OS, it was not possible to navigate the eAR Media Center with a mouse. That has changed. In this latest release, Peter has implemented a “mouse and touch screen navigation of the eAR Media Center”. In addition, Firestarter, a graphical interface to ipTables – the Linux firewall, has been added to the list of installed packages. These and other tweaks will be reflected – later today – in the snapshot review of the distro on this site.

Meanwhile, you may get this latest release by clicking on the download link from the eAR OS home page.
