Gentoox – a specialist Linux distribution based on Gentoo Linux, created for the Xbox – a home video game console.

It retains all the features of the original (portage, sysvinit etc…) but has a patch system created from the ground up, which is specifically designed for Gentoox. “Magic” allows users to install new software, upgrade their kernel and fix bugs. To learn more about magic, run “magic usage” once you have installed Gentoox.

Gentoox runs along side games – you get 3 choices during installation: E, F and Native. Both E and F create a loopback filesystem meaning that none of your drives are formatted during installation (except for cache partitions). If you choose “Native”, then your F: partition is formatted to ReiserFS (making it inaccessible to Xbox applications).

Gentoox can be loaded via a .xbe file, or from a Cromwell based BIOS (which can be flashed to your modchip during installation). When using E or F installations, you are totally risk free – if you don’t like Gentoox, simply delete all the files it installs (about 7 in total) and its gone.

There are three versions of Gentoox: Pro Edition, Home Edition and Media Center Edition. All three are 100% free and opensource, the difference between Home and Pro is that the Home Edition has many software packages preinstalled and preconfigured for instant usability straight out of the box where as Pro doesn’t even have a graphical user interface let alone any “useful” applications. Pro is a bare minimum installation for booting the system, the entire customization of the OS is left in the user’s hands with Pro. Media Center edition is more of a “Plugin” than a separate distribution. It allows you to have a Media Center along with Gentoox Home or Pro.

The project developer is Thomas Pedley.

White Glove – a commercial Linux distribution developed by Fred Cohen & Associates. White Glove was available as a paid CD, shipped via standard mail service, after purchased it from the developer.

White Glove was offered as two versions of youe choice: Bootable CD and Bootable Super CD.

The standard White Glove distribution is a bootable 180Meg CD-ROM. It comes complete with firewall software, drivers for most Ethernet cards and Disks, a wide range of networking and other amazing tools, and even complete and secure web and DNS servers. It includes an on-CD manual and tutorial, menu-based services from the X11 graphical user interface, and a set of tools that meet or exceed those you are used to today. It’s easy to use, easily fits in your shirt pocket, fast to boot and run, reliable, secure, and inexpensive. It is described in detail on these web pages. Select from the menu above for more of these details.

Recovery CD is designed for recovering your files from failing Windows or other PC-based systems. The computer boots from the CD, you tell it an IP address (or to use DHCP) and it makes all of the files available over SMB (the Windows network neighborhood) so you can copy them to other systems. Typical startup time is under 1 minute. Press here for more details.

Boot from the Bootable CD and the computer comes up in Linux.
– Local disks and disk partitions are identified, characterized, and mounted read-only.
– Local networking cards are identified and configured for use, but not initiated.
– Other devices are identified and made available for use.
– The booted system is firewalled from remote access to inhibit attempted access.
– In ‘diskless’ mode the CD removes itself from the system within a minute of bootup.

Use Linux directly (Super CD).
– Clean disk areas of contraband on-site.
– Clean and reformat systems for new applications.
– Use this platform to access remote capabilities and as a normal user system.
– Join IRC chat sessions, cruise the web, debug networks, and configure as a firewall.
– Do anything else Linux can do.

The Bootable Super CD was an innovation in low-cost, flexible, portable system tools. The Bootable Super CD provided a mini-CD-ROM complete with help, software, and remote access capabilities.

In short, the Bootable CD and Bootable Super CD provided a complete on-site analysis capability for those times when you can’t bring in your own special hardware to do the task or remove the systems from the site to capture and analyze evidence.

Topologilinux – a complete Slackware based Linux distribution to be run on top of any Dos/win partition without partitioning your hard disk. Very easy to install to your favorite Windows system like Windows Vista or Windows XP or Windows 2000.

It runs on your existing windows/dos partition in a directory named “/tlinux6”. This works on both NTFS and FAT partitions which means that you can run it under all existing Windows or dos systems. Since version 5 and above is that you can run it inside windows through coLinux, you can also use X windows through a vnc server and then connect using a vnc viewer.

Since version 6.0 also can be installed in real Linux mode without loopmount like the traditional distributions Slackware, Redhat, Fedora, Suse and so on if you prefer this method.

It is also possible to run your existing windows program in Topologilinux through the windows emulator wine. Just enter wine your_program.exe

Kondara MNU/Linux – a Linux distribution based on the Red Hat Linux and is precompiled for Pentium or Alpha systems.
The main focus of Kondara MNU/Linux appears to be on creating an open source distribution that supports Japanese and places heavy emphasis on graphics.

Kondara comes in two versions: one that is aimed at desktop systems and another that is aimed at server systems. This clearly shows that a Linux system can work equally well as desktop workstation, server or both at once.

Kondara MNU/Linux includes a separate applications CD-ROM, packed with RPM packages, along with Sun’s StarOffice 5.2. As in most RPM packages, there are separate directories for i586 (Intel), Alpha, and noarch (short for no architecture) for packages not specific to any architecture.

The “MNU” is an expression of a sound made when you touch a penguin, and is derived from “Mount is Not Umount”.

The project was under development between 1999 and 2002.

Source Mage – an independent and a source-based GNU/Linux distribution, originally forked from Sorcerer.

Sorcerer GNU/Linux distribution has been released in 2000 by Kyle Sallee. The project was closed down in 2002, after Chuck Mead forked it into Lunar Linux. The remaining Sorcerer GNU/Linux development team brought the Sorcerer back and continued development. Due to Sorcerer licensing, the new form changed its name to Source Mage.

Packages to be installed, are automatically downloaded, compiled, and then installed. Each package is called a “spell”, and its package management program is called “sorcery”. To install a package the user must “cast” that spell. A set of available spells is called a “grimoire”. To uninstall a package the user must “dispel” the spell.

The installable iso images were available for i486, x86_64 and PowerPC machines.

– to install a package is “cast”
– to remove a package is “dispel”

Socerer uses source packages (tarballs) which are downloaded from software project pages or patches when an old source was previously downloaded.

The distribution was under development between 2000 and 2013 (?).
The project developer is Kyle Sallee.

There are a few forks created on the source code of the Sorcerer: Lunar Linux and Source Mage.
