Chapeau 21.2.1 released, fixes live session bug
Today I am pleased to announce another Chapeau ISO release, Chapeau 21.2.1.
This ISO brings the current Chapeau live image up to date with packages as of 10th April 2015 and fixes a bug present on the other Chapeau 21 live images that can cause a live session to freeze.
Bug fix details
The issue is caused by the background software-update service which is able to automatically download packages when running a live session from a DVD or USB stick with an active internet connection enabled. This service can silently download updates and fill up the copy-on-write RAM disk that the live system is running on which can eventually freeze the live session after the copy-on-write filesystem fills up, this issue can therefore also happen when performing an installation with Anaconda in a live session with an enabled, working internet connection.
The freezing is reproduceable by booting up an older live image that has a lot of updates available from the repos on a system with a smaller amount of RAM, enabling a connection to the internet and leaving it idle for a while.
Enjoy Chapeau 21.2.1!
