    Stormix gone bankrupt
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, January 27, 2001 – 18:32
    Stormix the makers of a distro based on Debian have become bankrupt. Lets hope no other companies using Debian go the same route. And of course where does this leave users of Stormix, especially those who rely on their commercial support?

    Way too bad for Stormix. I bought their base system and loved it. I later tried Potato, just for the desire for a pure Debian system. I have an ISA soundcard and NIC; couldn’t get either to work with Potato. I reinstalled Stormix, then changed my sources to Debian.

    I recently upgraded to Woody. I had to do a lot of ‘apt-get -f upgrade’, etc, but it did install. I “lost” the soundcard, but kept the NIC. After recompiling with a 2.4.14 kernel, I was able to regain the soundcard by hard-compiling it into the kernel (instead of modules).

    I would not be where I am today (2.2.14 kernel, ext3, Gnome 1.4, KDE 2.2.2, etc) without the good start from Stormix.

    Download the ISO if you can find it.
