Kurumin – a Brazilian Linux distribution based on Knoppix, and later on Ubuntu. Its main features is a hardware auto-detection and full support for Brazilian Portuguese. It uses the KDE desktop environment as default.
Up to version 7.0, the Kurumin was based on Knoppix. Based on Knoppix, Kurumin offers solid hardware detection accuracy and works natively as a live CD, and it’s much easier to install on a hard drive than Knoppix thanks to a set of installation scripts that alleviate a lot the pain in the process. Kurumin comes out of the box with more than 400 small scripts –- most of them embedded in Clica-Aki, Kurumin’s Control Panel -– aimed at making easier some of the usual configuration tasks such as setting up a server, installing softmodems and wireless adapters, and installing new software.
The latest version of Kurumin NG 8.06 was based on Ubuntu 8.04, and was released June 24, 2008. It was discontinued on January 29, 2009.
The project developer is Carlos Morimoto.
