-2011-07-08 Distribution Release: Vinux 3.2.1 +===== Vinux 3.2.1 released ===== 
-[Vinux] Tony Sales has announced the release of Vinux 3.2.1, an Ubuntu-based distribution for designed for visually impaired users: "Vinux 3.2.1 is now available for download. The main difference between this and the recently released Vinux 3.2 is that by default it boots with PulseAudio running in 'user' mode rather than 'system' mode. This prevents PulseAudio from crashing at boot on a small number of sound cards, but it means that Speakup is not available from the live CD or immediately after installation. However, there are now two simple commands for switching PulseAudio from user to system mode in conjunction with a reboot of the machine. This version also includes an accessible Zenity front-end for UNetbootin which allows users to install Vinux to a USB pen drive with persistent storage. Visit the distribution's news page to read the full release announcement. Download (MD5): Vinux-3.2.1-i386-DVD.iso (977MB), Vinux-3.2.1-amd64-DVD.iso (1,054MB).+
