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.

Desktop environment: KDE Plasma
Architecture: x86_64
Based on: Manjaro Linux

Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 18.0 | November 16, 2018

GuruMan Linux – a KDE spin on Manjaro KDE Linux 18. GuruMan is based on x86_64-stable with kernel 4.19.1.

The GuruMan Linux KDE-18.0-stable-x86_64.iso can be installed in either a VM (Oracle VirtualBox or VMWare Tools) but I have integrated OpenVM-Tools into the ISO image which should work for either environment.

You can, of course, install GuruMan Linux on bare metal using a utility like Etcher (which I recommend) to create a bootable USB or create a bootable DVD and install it that way.

PCManFM File Manager has been incorporated into this ISO for those who want to replace Dolphin as their file manager of choice due to the security issues surrounding Dolphin that don’t exist in PCManFM. I left Dolphin in this distro, however, just in case you prefer that file manager instead regardless of security risk. Filezilla & gftp have been included as file transfer applications to choose from. My preference is gftp. If you use FireFox Web browser (my defacto Web browser in Linux), you will see an icon that pops up on the Task bar asking if you wish to install Plasma Browser Integration to support the add-on in Firefox for KDE. This is recommended to install. This distro uses the sddm display manager and pamac which replaces octopi as the package manager in GuruMan Linux.

The project founder is Dan Calloway.
