Sabayon Linux (previously RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux) – a Linux distribution developed by Fabio Erculiani, based on and fully compatible with Gentoo Linux. It uses the Entropy package management system that was specially developed for this distribution and Portage.

Entropy installs prepackaged packages which shortens the installation process compared to Portage. You can use Entropy with console or graphic user interface Equo or Ringo.

Sabayon supports x86 and amd64 architectures and is a rolling release distro, which means that you don’t have to install it from scratch after a new version is released. There are ready to go Live CDs/DVDs with GNOME, KDE, XFCE, MATE environments, a minimalist version with Fluxbox, which lets you customize the system according to your needs; and a version of SpinBase without a graphical environment.

To install the system on a hard drive, Sabayon uses the Anakonda installer known from Red Hat and Fedora.

Starting with version 16.06, Sabayon is also available for ARM machines (RaspberryPi).

The last version of Sabayon Linux are available for x86_64 machines only.

In November 2020, Sabayon has been rebranded to MocaccionoOS and merged the project with Funtoo Linux.

ToOpPy – a free multilingual Linux distribution, a Puppy Linux-based operating system working completely in RAM, that can be shortly described as lightweight, reliable, stable, very fast and portable.

ToOpPy Linux offers the JWM window manager, the ROX file manager and “2PDE”, a complete set of applications to easily customize your Desktop Environment.

Puppy designed by Barry Kauler (and ToOpPy is one of its adaptations), belongs to this very large and prolific family, and, despite resources out of all proportion to those available to their big sisters, manages to produce quality work.

ToOpPy LINUX can run on relatively old machines whose hardware configuration is wrongly and for purely commercial purposes considered “obsolete” (insufficient processor / components / memory …) or the operating system (Windows XP, etc.)) almost more usable.

Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 071919 | July 19, 2019

RoninOS – the “Masterless Distro” based on Debian Bullseye/Sid, Linux Live Kit and the LXDE desktop. A Debian based Live distro that is able to be persistent off usb or hard drive, installable to hard drive in “frugal” mode or full install to hard drive or play live in either default or toram mode with/without persistence and without mounting or changing any hard drive partitions, etc and will run off a ntfs/fat32 or ext2/3/4 formatted partitions using Grub, Syslinux or Extlinux.

Goals – To be totally free to boot Live off various environments and computers without harming or changing anything on said systems (unless you want to), to have automatic persistency across reboots and boot to ram mode. Also, to be able to be installed manually in either frugal mode or true hard drive install mode as a Debian install.

Dual Kernel – RoninOS comes with not only the latest Buster/Sid kernel but also the latest Xanmod kernel, you may choose either at boot menu.

Networking – WICD may not pick up your ethernet/wireless so use Ceni available in the main menu/internet, note you may be auto connected at boot but WICD may not show it.

Cheatcodes – Since RoninOS is based off of and runs like Slax, cheatcodes such as persistence, toram and others like load=module_name or noload=module_name etc are possible, some cheatcodes no longer work. Cheatcodes for toram and persistence and possibly others can be combined, ie “slax.flags=perch,toram” will boot it persistent and toram. You may edit the boot codes at the boot screen by hitting TAB button if using syslinux/extlinux or e if using grub. You can also directly edit syslinux.cfg/grub.cfg during live session (as root).

Passwords are root=root and user live=live

The project founder is Bryan Starr.
