Fig. 1: Iron Penguin

Gentoo Linux is proud to announce the availability of a new LiveDVD to celebrate the continued collaboration between Gentoo users and developers, The LiveDVD features a superb list of packages, some of which are listed below.

A special thanks to the Gentoo Infrastructure Team and likewhoa. Their hard work behind the scenes provide the resources, services and technology necessary to support the Gentoo Linux project.

  • Packages included in this release: Linux Kernel 3.15.6, Xorg 1.16.0, KDE 4.13.3, Gnome 3.12.2, XFCE 4.10, Fluxbox 1.3.5, LXQT Desktop 0.7.0, i3 Desktop 2.8, Firefox 31.0, LibreOffice 4.2.5.2, Gimp 2.8.10-r1, Blender 2.71-r1, Amarok 2.8.0-r2, Chromium 37.0.2062.35 and much more ...
  • If you want to see if your package is included we have generated both the x86 package list, and amd64 package list. The FAQ is located at FAQ. DVD cases and covers for the 20140826 release are located at Artwork. Persistence mode is back in the 20140826 release!.

The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multi lib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-20140826 version will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If your CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel. If your arch is amd64, boot with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64-bit kernel and install a customized 64-bit user land while using the provided 32-bit user land. The livedvd-amd64-multilib-20140826 version is for x86_64 only.

If you are ready to check it out, let our bouncer direct you to the closest x86 image or amd64 image file.

If you need support or have any questions, please visit the discussion thread on our forum.

Thank you for your continued support,
Gentoo Linux Developers, the Gentoo Foundation, and the Gentoo-Ten Project.

Action required: Password reset on all Gentoo services
Posted on April 13, 2014 by Alex Legler

gentoo

Recent versions of OpenSSL were found to be affected by an information disclosure vulnerability related to TLS heartbeats, nicknamed Heartbleed. It allows attackers to read up to 64kb of random server memory, possibly including passwords, session IDs or even private keys.

After the public disclosure on April 7, we have confirmed that several services provided by Gentoo Infrastructure were vulnerable as well. We have immediately updated the affected software, recreated private keys, reissued certificates, and invalidated all running user sessions. Despite these measures, we cannot exclude the possibility of attackers exploiting the issue during the time it was not publicly known to gain access to credentials or session IDs of our users. There are currently no indications this has happened.

However, to be safe, we are asking you to reset your passwords used for Gentoo services within the next 7 days. You need to take action if you have an account on one of the following sites:

  • blogs.gentoo.org
  • bugs.gentoo.org
  • forums.gentoo.org
  • wiki.gentoo.org

After 7 days, we will be removing all passwords to avoid abuse. For more information and the full announcement, visit http://infra-status.gentoo.org/notice/20140413-heartbleed.
