ERPOSS – a Debian based Linux distribution released as the government desktop by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), which was developed in cooperation with Credativ GmbH from Jülich. The idea was to offer public administrations inexpensive and secure software solutions.

Debian GNU/Linux “Sarge” was expanded to include OpenOffice.org and KDE 3.3.2. The installation was greatly simplified and automatic hardware detection replaced manual editing of many configuration files.

Other desktops such as Gnome or WindowMaker were missing to make the distribution applicable for the easy setup of uniform PCs with a graphical user interface, web browser (Firefox) and OpenOffice.org office software.

Special features of the ERPOSS4 government desktop:
– Encryption of the file system (installation CD only)
– Pre-configured and activated personal firewall
– KMail email software with integrated virus and spam protection and encryption
– Pre-configuration to participate in the administrative PKI

System requirements of the ERPOSS3 government desktop:
– x86-compatible processor of the 486 generation or better
– At least 128 MB RAM
– Bootable CD-ROM drive
– Serial, PS/2 or USB mouse

The project was declared “outdated” by the BSI in 2008 and will no longer be continued.

The last version | Released: 1.3.0 rc1 | December 16, 2005

AGNULA (A GNU/Linux distribution for audio) – a project started by the European Commission, aimed at creating two Linux distributions that could be used to process music and sound: ReHMuDi (Red Hat Multimedia Distribution) and DeMuDi (Debian Multimedia Distribution). The project has developed as a multimedia harvester with many practical solutions that are not found even in commercial multimedia systems.

The project was coordinated by Centro Tempo Reale (Florence, Italy) and sees the participation of a range of actors from the research, university and business arenas.

The project was funded by the European Commission from April 1, 2002 to March 31, 2004. When the Commission stopped funding the project, volunteers continued work on DeMuDi, while work on the ReHMuDi branch was discontinued.

The purposes of AGNULA can be summarized as follows:
– support the development of GNU/Linux distributions completely dedicated to audio applications.
– provide coordinated access to the widest combination of Free audio software in a coherent environment. This will enhance state-of-the-art research and development in the audio field.
– provide a audio system based on Libre Software which will enhance customized usage (useful in cultural and artistic environments).
– help spreading sensibility on the topics of Libre Software (with specific attention paid to audio/video applications and content distribution).
