CD Distributions in alphabetic order


A DIOS Linux Boot CD

The objective of the ADIOS project is to provide students with an operating system where they have administrative privileges.  At the same time provide a reliable version of the operating system.  One method is to download a pre-installed version of the operating system onto the PC in the laboratory.  There are many ways to do this and many software packages available.  The ADIOS project uses a web server to deliver Operating System ../images.  The ADIOS setup image is used to install other operating systems into disk partitions.  It has also been configured to save copies of the OS ../images on spare disk partitions to reduce network traffic.  Recently the setup image has been ported onto the CDROM.  In summary the work is now divided into the following directions:

The best way to impress a non-Linux user is to show them what Linux is all about and the fastest and least intrusive way to do that is via a so-called 'Live-CD'. Live-CD denotes the ability to run your Operating System and all your applications straight from the CD (there is no need to install anything). This project is tasked with bringing forth a fully Arabized Live-CD distribution.

The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. This operating system that we have created is called Debian GNU/Linux , or simply Debian for short.

An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. At the core of an operating system is the kernel. The kernel is the most fundamental program on the computer and does all the basic housekeeping and lets you start other programs.

Debian systems currently use the Linux kernel. Linux is a completely free piece of software started by Linus Torvalds and supported by thousands of programmers worldwide.

However, work is in progress to provide Debian for other kernels, primarily for the Hurd . The Hurd is a collection of servers that run on top of a microkernel (such as Mach) to implement different features. The Hurd is free software produced by the GNU project.

DemoLinux CDs allow Linux  to run without installation, disk partitioning and other hassles that usually prevent people from giving Linux a try.

This is made possible by a set of technological features in the Linux kernel, and by means of some other free software (notably by S.u.S.E. and RedHat) that they reused

they wanted to make it possible to everybody to look at what Linux can offer, and to make it possible for software publishers wanting to show their Linux-based software to distribute a no hassle hands-off demo CD.

But this kind of CD makes also a wonderful Linux-to-go solution: you might carry your favourite desktop configuration in your pocket, sit in front of a non-Linux box, boot from the CD and be in front of your preferred environment in minutes.

Eagle Linux

Eagle Linux is a floppy/CD based distribution that boots and operates completely independent of permanent storage media. The unique feature of Eagle Linux is its main form of distribution - a complete how-to manual which walks the user through each step in creating a fully functional bootable Linux CD. Eagle Linux can be downloaded in ISO format as well (as of version 2.2), but its popularity stems from the freely available documentation. A Linux user who downloads Eagle Linux documentation can easily create a bootable CD in an afternoon.

Eagle Linux is a core Linux distribution, meaning the documentation or ISO image provide a complete Linux base system. The modular construction of Eagle Linux allows users to easily include desired applications such as compilers, network tools, client/server functionality, etc.

With version 2.0 came the need to forgo the floppy capability, as the El Torito standard was found to be too restrictive. In its place is ISOLinux, an offset of Syslinux, which allows a boot image of virtually any size.

Fedora Core 1

Fedora Core1 The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products. It is not a supported product of Red Hat, Inc.

The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Core about 2-3 times a year with a public release schedule. The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in the building of Fedora Core and will invite and encourage more outside participation than was possible in Red Hat Linux. By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system that uses free software development practices and is more appealing to the open source community.

Fedora Core 1 is now available

  • FreeDuc

    Until now - and probably for a while in most heads - the GNU/Linux system at school has been perceived as a good replacement of other proprietary servers. However the server is probably the least important things in term of freedom in a school network. It doesn't allow a teacher to share a workstation software with students. Supporting GNU/Linux in the workstation side can grant higher freedom and liberty between users in a school.. Therefore, OFFSET has setup Freeduc , a tool to help to list, to evaluate and to package only free - non GPL exclusive - edu soft.

    Gentoo Linux

    Gentoo Linux in a paragraph

    Gentoo Linux, a special flavour of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.

    Thanks to a technology called Portage, Gentoo Linux can become an ideal secure server, development workstation, professional desktop, gaming system, embedded solution or something else -- whatever you need it to be. Because of its near-unlimited adaptability, we call Gentoo Linux a meta distribution.

    What is Portage? 

    Portage is the heart of Gentoo Linux, and performs many key functions. For one, Portage is the software distribution system for Gentoo Linux. To get the latest software for Gentoo Linux, you type one command: emerge sync . This command tells Portage to update your local "Portage tree" over the Internet. Your local Portage tree contains a complete collection of scripts that can be used by Portage to create and install the latest Gentoo packages.

    Developed by Klaus Knopper in Germany, it is safe to say that Debian-based Knoppix has raised the bar of standards to a new level, especially with its automatic hardware detection that puts many well established commercial Linux distributions to shame. Its hands-free booting, enormous selection of software, its on-the-fly decompression technique and the ability to install it on a hard disk have turned Knoppix into an indispensable tool. It can be used as a rescue disk, a tool to demonstrate Linux to those who haven't seen it or a tool to test a new computer before purchase. It can even be used as a full-blown Linux distribution for every-day tasks.

    Founded in 1993, Red Hat is the premier Linux and open source provider. The most recognized Linux brand in the world. We serve global enterprises through technology and services made possible by the open source model. Solutions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating platforms, sold through a subscription model, and a broad range of services: consulting, 24x7 support, Red Hat Enterprise Network. Red Hat's global training program operates in more than 60 locations worldwide and features RHCE, the global standard Linux certification.

    What began as a better way to build software--openness, transparency, collaboration--soon shifted the balance of power in an entire industry. The revolution continues. Today Red Hat is the world's most trusted provider of Linux and open source technology. And that technology is pervasive, running systems of all sizes, and, more than ever, powering mission-critical computing in the enterprise.

    For many, the name Red Hat epitomizes Linux, as it is probably the best-known Linux company in the world. Founded in 1995 by Bob Young and Marc Ewing, Red Hat, Inc. has only recently started showing signs of profitability, due to services and its Red Hat Enterprise Linux product line. However, Red Hat Linux 9 was the last version in the Red Hat Linux product line, which was replaced by Fedora Core in late 2003. While Fedora is officially sponsored by Red Hat, it is developed with community participation, has a short life-span and serves mainly as a testing base for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

    What is so special about Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core? It is a curious mix of conservative and leading-edge packages put together on top of many knowledge-intensive utilities developed in-house. The packages are not the most up-to-date; once a new beta version is announced, the package versions are frozen, except for security updates. The result is a well-tested and stable distribution, the beta program and bug reporting facility are open to the public and there are several mailing lists. Red Hat Linux has become a dominant Linux distribution on servers around the world.

    The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table.

    Originally developed by Linus Torvalds in 1991, the UNIX®-like Linux operating system now benefits from the contributions of millions of users and developers around the world. Slackware Linux provides new and experienced users alike with a fully-featured system, equipped to serve in any capacity from desktop workstation to machine-room server. Web, ftp, and email servers are ready to go out of the box, as are a wide selection of popular desktop environments. A full range of development tools, editors, and current libraries is included for users who wish to develop or compile additional software.

    The Slackware Philosophy

    Since its first release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution out there. Slackware complies with the published Linux standards, such as the Linux File System Standard. We have always considered simplicity and stability paramount, and as a result Slackware has become one of the most popular, stable, and friendly distributions available.

    Slackware Overview

    Slackware Linux is a complete 32-bit multitasking "UNIX-like" system.i It's currently based around the 2.4 Linux kernel series and the GNU C Library version 2.3.2 (libc6). It contains an easy to use installation program, extensive online documentation, and a menu-driven package system. A full installation gives you the X Window System, C/C++ development environments, Perl, networking utilities, a mail server, a news server, a web server, an ftp server, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, Netscape Communicator, plus many more programs. Slackware Linux can run on 486 systems all the way up to the latest x86 machines (but uses -mcpu=i686 optimization for best performance on i686-class machines like the P3, P4, and Duron/Athlon).
