LinHES R8 has been released.
LinHES is a Linux distribution that can be used to convert any PC into a home entertainment system. That how it gained the “HES” in its name. Want to convert any off-the-shelf hardware into a Linux-powered settop box that can serve as a PVR, jukebox, image viewer and a game station, LinHES is one of the Linux distributions at your disposal.
Previous editions of LinHES were based on Knoppix and Debian, but LinHES R8 is based on Arch Linux. It is also the first LinHES release that does not have a 32-bit installation image, only 64-bit. With this comes a partitioning scheme that’s not compatible with previous edition’s, so upgrading from LinHES 7 to 8 will not be as straight-forward as it should be. To facilitate the upgrade process, a detailed tutorial has been published by the developers. You may read it here.
