SteamOS
Valve wypuściło SteamOS 1.0 Beta 01.21.2014, w którym zniesiono wymóg posiadania UEFI. Teraz SteamOS zainstalujemy na starszych komputerach, które posiadają jedynie BIOS. Warto zaznaczyć, że zmiany te pojawiły się po wydaniu Ye Olde SteamOSe Release4, z którego zaczerpnięto część nowości.

  • assback

    Nadal instaluje się na całym dysku bez możliwości sprecyzowanie partycji?

      W tej wersji da się w Expert Mode. Masz normalnego instalatora Debianowskiego.
      A co jeszcze dodano cyt.:
      “A summary of the differences, for the curious:

      Valve has removed a pointless second copy of the package manifest. Good, we only ever kept it because Valve did

      Valve doesn’t include the package contents manifests. These aren’t useful for 99% of people anyway

      Valve
      doesn’t include all the firmware ever. In Ye Olde SteamOSe, we added
      every bit of device firmware possibly used by end users. Valve does not
      include all of them (they already included a couple, e.g. for Realtek
      networking)

      Valve has rolled in some recent Debian security updates, e.g. to apt-get and curl

      Valve
      includes all the 32-bit stuff there is. In Ye Olde SteamOSe, we strip
      out most 32-bit packages which are not used. Valve includes them all, so
      has a bigger ISO

      Valve includes the 32-bit version of the installer – no 32-bit kernel though, so not usable on 32-bit-only computers.

      Valve does not include support for LVM or mdraid

      Valve
      includes an installer which runs from Windows. I don’t know what
      functionality it allows or prevents compared to booting the installer
      directly

      Valve doesn’t contain Ye Olde SteamOSe’s audio hacks – it still only works properly on Brix or Prototype

      Valve
      has killed the old “expert” mode – Ye Olde SteamOSe’s “Power User” mode
      is included instead, relabelled as Expert. YOS still includes both
      Power User and the old-style Expert modes

      Valve doesn’t allow NTFS resizing ( https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamOS/issues/88 )

      Valve doesn’t include VirtualBox guest additions. But no big loss, given VirtualBox is shit.
      The headline features pulled in by Valve are:

      Non-EFI support

      DVD install support

      Partitioner in Power User/Expert mode

      Dual boot in Power User/Expert mode

      Supports recovery etc if you use a custom layout as long as it’s still Valve-ish enough”
