Key Features

Released Files

This release contains four files:

  • 32-bit ISO:  cm-x86-14.1-rc1.iso

    sha1sum: 447444706324db8f3865700cbfa5a4b891d23e85

  • 64-bit ISO:  cm-x86_64-14.1-rc1.iso

    sha1sum: b1c3cbc7c692fca6d10289504db16a5cfbe58c90

    sha1sum: 8f51feedb404130e017d17c75a1aeeed35cac91d

You can choose one of these files depends on your devices. In doubt, try the 32-bit files for legacy BIOS devices and 64-bit files for UEFI devices.

To use an ISO file, Linux users could just dump the it into a usb drive to create a bootable usb stick like

$ dd if=cm-x86_64-14.1-rc1.iso of=/dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.

Windows's users can use the tool Win32 Disk Imager to create a bootable usb stick.

Please read this page about how to install it to the device.

Except the traditional ISO files, we also packaged files as a Linux package rpm. It allows Linux users to easily install the release into an existing Linux device with a standalone ext4 root partition. On an rpm based device (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/...), just install it like a normal rpm package:

$ sudo rpm -Uvh cm-x86-14.1-rc1.x86_64.rpm

All files will be installed to the /cm-x86-14.1-rc1/ subdirectory and a boot entry will be added to grub2 menu. Reboot and choose cm-x86 item from the menu to enter the system.

To uninstall it:

$ sudo rpm -e cm-x86

On a deb based device (Debian/Ubuntu/LinuxMint/...), please use the alien tool to install it:

$ sudo apt install alien
$ sudo alien -ci cm-x86-14.1-rc1.x86_64.rpm
