Dear FLUKA users

FLUPIX 2008.3b has been released:

Most important changes:
1. The new version of FLUPIX is based on Fedora-11.
2. Specially remastered to minimize the disk space 319Mb compared to
554Mb of the old version.
3. LXDE as a default window environment
4. No complicated persistence mechanism. It requires a virtual disk
labeled "/home" to keep the data. If you are already using a previous
version of FLUPIX you could run the command '' through a
terminal to perform the migration.
5. Simpler setup
6. All latest Virtualbox additional utilities are integrated
7. Desktop resizing works simply by resizing the window.
8. Automated procedure through kickstart file to generate the ISO image.

Installation Instructions:

Best Regards
Vasilis Vlachoudis

P.S. This message is sent to the fluka-users and fluka-discuss lists as
well as to some other lists internal to the FLUKA Collaboration. I
apologize to all those who will get it twice or more
