Hi LUGers,

	Yes the next meeting is a week from Sunday
and if you can set up an in person meeting let us know.
Meantime we can expect to be at <https://meet.jit.si/sf-lug.org>
pushing the electrons around.

	I have had a couple of serious incidents causing me to lose
a lot of personal files as well as loss of internet connections due
to a strange reconfiguration of network utilities.  For over a decade
we used the same program inherited from Mandrake or Mandriva to get on
line and suddenly a new player was in town and it wiped away all the
network connection data.  I made an effort to fix it but finally wiped
the / and re-installed.  Then my arm jiggled and I accidentally sent
/home/bliss/Documents to Trash,  I tried to copy it back but ended up
losing a lot of stuff anyway.  Boo-hoo-hoo.

	At Distrowatch.com some new stuff but not too much is out.

2022-07-31 	NEW • Distribution Release: Linux Mint 21
The Linux Mint team have announced a new version of its Ubuntu-based 
distribution, Linux Mint 21. The new version swaps out the old Blueberry 
Bluetooth software in favour of Blueman, improvements have been made to 
the Sticky Notes application to make it easier to identify different 
notes, and there is a new process monitor which will indicate to the 
user when automated tasks are consuming system resource


2022-07-30 	Distribution Release: 4MLinux 40.0
	4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four 
capabilities: maintenance (as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for 
playing video DVDs and other multimedia files), miniserver (using the 
inetd daemon), and mystery (providing several small Linux games). The 
project's latest stable release introduces a number of changes to media 
support and adds encrypted volume utilities.


2022-07-27 	NEW • Development Release: OpenMandriva Lx 5.0 Technical
Cristina Sgubbi has announced the availability of the first development 
snapshot of OpenMandriva Lx 5.0, an upcoming new version of the 
project's desktop-oriented Linux distribution featuring the latest 
Plasma desktop:

They have the nerve to call this miniature but it is now larger than
the capacity of a CD except for the core edition and it has server
as well as a desktop.


2022-07-24 	NEW • Distribution Release: NuTyX 22.07.0
  	NuTyX is a French Linux distribution (with multi-language support) 
built from Linux From Scratch and Beyond Linux From Scratch, with a 
custom package manager called "cards". The project's latest snapshot is 
NuTyX 22.07.0 which includes several new tools and updates to its wide 
range of desktop editions.  For some more information

And I mentioned Rocky Linux already but then picked up this tiny bit
of information.
Rocky Linux 9.0 can be downloaded on the Downloads page for the x86_64, 
aarch64, ppc64le, and s390x architectures.


And In Other News, you may have heard or not, a large meteor exploded
over or near Puerto Rico.  Video at the following URL of the power
of the explosion.


The Distrowatch weekly newsletter is out again and leads off with a
  review of KaOS 2022.06 and KDE Plasma 5.25.  You can find it
  at the URL below.


	Well I hope this has added value to your email.
