Chakra Alpha1 released!
December 21, 2008, 12:17 pm
Filed under: KDE

Probably some of you know on what the small Development-Team of KDEmod has worked on for over a half year now already! We wanted to keep this under the radar for now, but now as we have our first public release out, we can break the silence. 🙂

We’ve created a LiveCD based on ArchLinux and KDEmod. Additionally we added some tools for easier administration of the installed system.
Chakra includes a nice Installer and even has proprietary graphics drivers installed per default. (There’s also a boot option to only use free drivers btw…)

You can read the release-announcement here. But to remind you, this is an alpha release! So don’t consider it to be 100% stable (but we’ve done our best to make it as stable as possible) and report any bugs and gliches at our Bugtracker.

We hope you enjoy this! You can download it here.

@jay: Yeah, we’re planning to open a planet for Chakra-only even, but I will try to get some posts here and there on PlanetKDE as well…
Help is needed anytime 🙂 So just checkout #chakra-devel on freenode-irc

Looks fucking sweet! Very nice logo and installer, i love kde4 and like the nave of the distro as well. Was looking into Archlinux today… but seems a bit “argh” to me. Hoping Chakra will be really pushing things in the right direction 🙂
