Tablix on Morphix

Origin: Slovenia
Category: Clusters
Desktop environment: GNOME
Architecture: x86
Based on: Morphix
Wikipedia:
Media: Live
The last version | Released: 0.0.1 | April 2004

Tablix on Morphix – a bootable CD based Linux distribution with automatic cluster configuration. This means that all you need for a functioning PVM3 cluster is a bunch of computers and a pile of Tablix on Morphix CDs. You just have to boot the master node of the cluster from the CD, click a few options on the screen, then boot as many slave nodes as you want and click OK on each.

What is Tablix?
Tablix is a powerful free software kernel implementing a parallel genetic algorithm. It can be used to solve a large subset of discreet multivariable optimization problems, but is specially optimized for timetabling. Because of its modular design it is relatively simple to adapt Tablix to needs of a specific organization. Coarse-grained parallel algorithm can also fully exploit any multi-processor machine that supports PVM3 – from modern multi-core CPUs to clusters of low-end machines connected by a local area network. Specifically this means most users will want to use Tablix on Linux or another UNIX-like operating system.

Tablix on Morphix comes preinstalled with all programs that are needed for solving timetable problems with Tablix. Some of the software available on the CD:
– mlview, gedit, vim (for editing Tablix XML configuration)
– mozilla (for previewing generated timetables! )
– ggv (for reading documentation)
– most of GNOME desktop environment

Version 0.0.1 is the first experimental release of this project.

The project developer is Tomaz Solc.

Local Area Security (L.A.S.) – live-CD Linux distribution for information security professionals. It contains over 250 security tools including all the usual suspects (Nmap, Nessus, etc.) as well as many other great tools less well known. The ISO images are meant to be burned on 185MB and 210MB miniCDs which they update around twice a month. The distribution was available in 2 different versions of L.A.S. to fit two specific needs – MAIN and SECSERV.

The project was started in 2002 to research information security related topics. During that time there was no real live-CD toolkit focused on information security. So Jascha, the project founder built one from a stripped down version of Knoppix called Model-K. Both of which were built from Debian Linux. Up until version 0.4 L.A.S. Linux was command line only. After that, FluxBox was added as the desktop since it is light weight and very feature filled.

A few of the tools that wewe available in the distribution: etherape, mozillafirebird, argus-server, argus-client, arpwatch, bfbtester, cabextract, cflow, dlint, farpd, recover, gtkrecover, nasm, nast, strace, ltrace, sudo,valgrind, pnscan, isic, splint, sendip, scli, scanssh, rarpd, wellenreiter,router-audit-tool, httpush, bass, scansort, scanerrlog, idsa / idsaguardgtk, crank (for fun), ccrypt, ntfstools, pasmal, bruth, hlfl, less, smbfs, smstools, LinNeighborhood, snmp, snmpd, driftnet, Dillo, admsmp, admsnmp,arptool, di, hammerhead, flawfinder, foremost, md5deep, binutils, findutils,file, gall, libpst, libdbx, rda, ntreg, memfetch, stegdetect, mkpersistenthome, mkdosswap, pv, cscope, scanlogd, cgrep, bsed, vlad, warscan, zodiac, angst, hackbot, mieliekoek.pl, screamingcobra.pl, cmospwd, macchanger, vomit, atmelwlandriver, wlcardconfig, sshstart-knoppix.

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 3.3 | April 29, 2004

Knorpora – a modified version of the Knoppix 3.3 Live CD for students of corpus-based computational linguistics.

Like Knoppix, the Knorpora CD allows you to run a fully operational Debian/Linux operating system from the CD-ROM drive, without installing anything on the computer.

The Knorpora edition of Knoppix contains programs and data files that should be of interest to computational linguistics students (WordNet, the Natural Language Toolkit, taggers, etc.)

When you launch Knorpora on your computer, you can immediately start learning how to use a UNIX-like operating system while at the same time experimenting with the kind of UNIX-command-line-based NLP tools that make UNIX the ideal operating system for NLP work.

Even if you already work with UNIX, Knorpora may give you the chance to try some interesting software before you install it.

The last version | Released: 7.2.1 | July 16, 2004

OpenDarwin – a freely available, multi-platform Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) / Mach 3.0 kernel-based UNIX-like operating system.

The goal of the OpenDarwin project, founded in April 2002, is to create an independent branch of the Darwin operating system that increases collaboration between Apple developers and the open source community. Apple benefits from the project because development in OpenDarwin is often incorporated into Darwin releases; and the open source community benefits since it is given complete control over its own operating system.

The OpenDarwin developers use a version control system called Concurrent Versions System (CVS to manage changes to the OpenDarwin source code. Many of the OpenDarwin developers are Apple employees, whereas others are not. It should be noted that the OpenDarwin project is fully independant of Apple, and has complete control over it’s own code, though they generally try to stay compatible with Apple’s own software.

Like most modern operating systems, OpenDarwin employs a built-in kernel debugger to help the developers find kernel bugs.

The goal of the OpenDarwin project is to provide resources for open source developers to interact and produce products for Apple’s Mac OS X. One of the key aspects of the project is to enable interested Mac OS X developers to be able to retrieve, modify, build, and distribute operating system changes.

The project has a Core Team , similar to the other various BSD projects. We are currently seeking contributors for all aspects of the project, and additions to the Core Team will be chosen from the most active contributors. One of the initial Core Team’s first action items is to establish the rules for how future Core Team and project members will be selected.

OpenDarwin core team members:
– Rob Braun – Founder of darwinfo.org (a now defunct darwin information site), maintainer of xinetd , and contributing author to the UNIX System Administration Handbook.
– Kevin Van Vechten – The Darwin team at Apple.
– Torrey T. Lyons – A committer on the XFree86 Project, Torrey is the founder of the XonX Project. He is a scientist at Mission Research Corporation, Los Angeles.
