Gentoo Linux 20160514 released with UEFI & ZFS support

Gentoo Linux is proud to announce the availability of a new LiveDVD code named Choice Edition to celebrate the continued collaboration between Gentoo users and developers.

The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multilib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-20160514 ISO will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64.

– If CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel.
– If the arch is amd64, boot with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64-bit kernel and install a customized 64-bit userland while using the provided 32-bit userland.

The livedvd-amd64-multilib-20160514 ISO is for x86_64 CPUs only and will not boot on x86 CPUs.
