Kongoni GNU/Linux – a Slackware based, and a desktop oriented Linux distribution.
Kongoni uses the Linux-Libre kernel and does not ship with, include or offer the ability to install any software not approved by the Free Software Foundation.
The Kongoni OS installs software through the use of ports. This allows one to download the source code for a program, as opposed to a pre-compiled binary file, which is then compiled and built automatically on the users system. This offers the benefit of smaller downloads and programs that may run faster and/or use less memory, as they are compiled explicitly for the users own system.
The system includes several pieces of own code including:
– the graphical installer
– KISS: Kongoni Integrated Setup System an easy to use tool for doing common system configuration tasks
– PIG: Ports Installation GUI: An easy to use tool for installing and managing programs.
The last version of Kongoni 2011 was released in July 2011.
