    Does anyone remember which was the last version that did NOT include network manager and had wicd in its place?

    I am personally abandoning Parted Magic, it changed a lot since this last release, thank you everyone that helped through the years for a shared ISO. Stay safe!

    Can you suggest an alternative? I tried system rescue cd years ago but it was inferior to parted magic.

    Nice. It would be nicer though if it included all 4 isos of 2020 instead of some old isos that were released 3-4 years ago.

    A new version of parted magic was released yesterday. I just got the iso from a ddl site. In case anyone wants to compare, these are the sums (md5, sha1 and sha256 respectively).
    Code:
    $ md5sum pmagic_2020_12_25.iso && sha1sum pmagic_2020_12_25.iso && sha256sum pmagic_2020_12_25.iso
    0089e0d44c77ee47558ad98af70f846c  pmagic_2020_12_25.iso
    ddedd2f0d7e2940fcbf276b2aee2efb605b6f8bf  pmagic_2020_12_25.iso
    37fee15cf2995d6703f1d08d94175a8be087d3dd3f7dea4959738f4b83d42469  pmagic_2020_12_25.iso

    Thanks @jim_p ! Season greetings.
    Any improvements that may please us or is it in the "distro" mentality switched since few weeks back?

    ( I will probably stop downloading them, I see no point to be honest as discussed but many thanks for the checksums! )

    Kinda offtopic, but I have to ask.
    As someone who does not speak/write in asian languages (korean, japanese, chinese etc), allow me a question. Is fcitx such a major component for someone that does? I think it is completely useless even for other everyday distros and that one can istall it seperately if he wishes.

    Is anyone using parted magic with ventoy? I used it for the very first time today and it failed to boot. I am now waiting for a friend to bring me his laptop so as to try it there too.
    However, on the site's page, parted magic is listed as a supported distro, although it mentions an older version (2020-02-23) was the one that they tested.

    Yes, it works on Ventoy for me. I'm using the latest Ventoy update and external USB HD.

    Thank you for the feedback.
    I tried it on my friend's laptop and ir booted as usual. It is an amd a9 cpu + apu. So either nouveau really hates my gpu or my front panel usb ports are to blame. I would bet on nouveau, because I use the front panel usbs weekly to transfer files on that same usb stick that has ventoy on.

    First parted magic of 2021 today, 2021_02_28.
    No sums etc yet, but I will post them as soon as I find the iso.
