Litrix Linux – a Gentoo based Linux distribution in live CD format that can also be installed as a desktop operating system on x86 computers. The project was created and developed by Vagner Rodrigues between 2000 and 2011.
The first trial version of Litrix wes released in 2000 with the release of BZS (Brazilian Zip Slackware) a modified version of Slackware which was running on FAT 32 partitions giving an option to Windows 9X users who were not familiar with the GNU/Linux system to have the first contacts without the need to repartition the HD.
In late 2003 due to several problems with print servers and printer filters in Slackware, Vagner began looking for a better alternative to the print filters than APSFILTER used in Slackware.
After creating packages for Slackware from Foomatic + cups to Slackware, Vagner takes a copy of the script that generates the live CD Slax and develops Litrix Linux 1.0. Later Litrix Linux creates a fork of similarities with Slax and passes its own live CD generation script and CD boot.
In 2005 Litrix 2.1 was the time to say goodbye to the Slackware base and switch using the Gentoo base, allowing you to bring new features and ability to be customized for performance.
