Project Description

NOTICE! : This project is on hold indefinitely. 18.3, based off of Ubuntu 18.04 worked great. Recent Ubuntu updates have made a mess of installations. Dozens of errors, overwritten customizations, and inability to boot, means almost starting over from scratch. I no longer have time to maintain such a project with this many issues. It is on hold, indefinitely. The final ISO of 18.3 will be uploaded, and that is all.

Scion Linux is a lightweight and easy to use Ubuntu-based distro. The ISO's live session may ask for username and password. The username is 'live' and the password is 'password'.

Release Notes

This version is based on Ubuntu 16.04 and aims to fix VirtualBox compatibility issues. There is also several changes to included software.

VIRTUALBOX WARNING: Ensure your VirtualBox is up to date. If you have issues with using the ISO, try disabling 3D acceleration and disable EFI in the VM Settings.

This is still a Beta but is very stable. There currently is no option to boot directly into the installer, you must boot the live session. Once in the live session, you can install from the Welcome screen, or from the install icon in the dock.

This versions aims to keep Scion flowing until Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is release with all the final packages in place.
