Korona 4.4.3

Korona is the live DVD combining KDE4 and OpenSolaris. I just uploaded the latest Korona 4.4.3 (with, eh, KDE 4.4.3) to, it should appear there in a couple of hours.
Thanks to hnhn, the process list and other system info now work in ksysguard (
Also, Korona is booting directly into a KDE session again.

When running the iso inside VirtualBox, I was observing high CPU utilization by the kernel, this is likely related to bug 12799; it runs ok on real hardware.

Also konqueror crashes on startup, which is weird as noone of those running KDE 4.4.3 from the bionicmutton repository has reported that.

Last note - the site (hosting the kde-solaris packages and mercurial repository) is down due to some severe hardware failures, please be patient.


  1. Wow. I don't remember OpenSolaris looking so sexy. I guess I'll have to give it another try.

  2. Looking so sexy? To me KDE4 is looks like now it is no anymore popular to clone OSX, so they started to copy stuff from Windows 7. :(

  3. At least it looks like a desktop from 2009-10 not like a desktop from 1995. And yes, I like how it looks like.

  4. Copying windows 7? Are you sure ... I remember KDE4 before windooze 7....
