Clear Support Moving Forward?

Is this project active? Intel hasn’t really updated the main page in awhile and I’m curious if development is still moving forward with it.

I am wondering this too. I haven’t looked at clear linux in a while and was thinking about installing it again.

My impression is it’s on life support and about to be cancelled by Intel. Or has been severely budget cut.

For example major packages (eg postgresql) are simply not updated anymore, and no-one responds.

The seems much less participation on the forums too. So yeah my advice would be not waste time on CL right now. Not trying to be negative, would just be nice to be open and upfront with the community about whats going on…

Well that’s a shame, this was the most promising to happen to Linux in years!

The project is somewhat less active.

This could be a (temporary) priority issue.

The position in the CPU market needs to be secured first.

Ah… bummer. Went to install httpd on our server at work and started googling about it after it didn’t work. Like most things Clear, it takes complete configuration and doesn’t “just work” … so I’ll be going to the latest kubuntu. Mostly to test KDE on a server with a monitor at a desk no one uses.

It’s kinda like ripping off a bandaid since there are so many things I forget that I had set up until they quit working. :smirk::roll_eyes::grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

You should be able to just copy the configuration files to get it up and running.

Well, this forum is abandoned since community manager disappeared.

Track Clear Linux* Project · GitHub & clearlinux-pkgs · GitHub plus IRC channel on Libera and you’ll see a lot of activity.

For example the last issue: Update KDE Plasma to 5.22 (better wayland support, usability enhancements) · Issue #2373 · clearlinux/distribution · GitHub

Is she ok?

Yes, we do miss Bia. :frowning:
The community forum has not been abandoned (quite), but I will agree we’ve given less attention to it than in the past. We do still have dedicated engineers working on Clear Linux, but they tend to be more active on IRC, Github and email mailing lists than in this forum.

Agree. It would be a shame. I am trying Clear Linux again after about a year away. Compared to a year ago, this forum seems pretty dead. I hope that doesn’t mean the OS itself is on its deathbed.
