Media: Live
The last version | Released: 2003-09-23 | October 2003

NordisKnoppix – a version of Klaus Knopper’s Knoppix, supporting Nordic and Baltic languages, and maintained by Conrad Newton.

Presently, the supported languages include:
– Danish
– Estonian
– Finnish
– Faroese
– Icelandic
– Latvian
– Lithuanian
– Northern sami
– Norwegian bokmål
– Norwegian nynorsk
– Swedish
– US English
to the extent that Debian packages for these languages are available, and that they fit on the CD.
Aside from the Nordic/Baltic language components, NordisKnoppix is the same as standard Knoppix.

When the computer starts up, you have the opportunity to choose the language and several other parameters that will be used throughout your NordisKnoppix session. You do this by typing in the appropriate “boot options” as soon as the “boot:” prompt appears on the screen. Failure to type in any of these options will result in the default US English.

Native-language boot-floppies may be found in the “boot-floppies” directory, where the file README.native-language describes how to modify the CD so that it defaults to your native language.

The project was active between March and November 2003.
The latest version of NordisKnoppix is based on Knoppix 3.2 (?).

Category: Desktop, Server
Desktop environment: Blackbox, Fluxbox, KDE, WindowMaker, Xfce
Architecture: x86_64
Based on: Slackware
Wikipedia: Slamd64
Media: Install CD/DVD
The last version | Released: 12.2 | February 2, 2009

Slamd64 – the first unofficial port of Slackware to the x86-64 architecture. The project started (the first alpha release) in January 2005, and finished in 2009. Support for 32-bit binaries was removed for the 11.0 release, but was reintroduced in the 12.0 release.

The latest version of Slamd64 12.2 features packages such as:
– Linux kernel 2.6.27.7
– GCC 4.2.4
– Apache HTTPD 2.2.10, with SSL support and PHP 5.2.8
– KDE 3.5.10
– XFCE 4.4.3
– Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5
– Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19
– Sun Java (JRE and JDK) 6u11

Slamd64 12.2 provides seamless FHS-compliant 32-bit compatibility, via a multilib system (/lib for 32-bit libraries and /lib64 for 64-bit libraries). This provides easier and increased support for both existing 32-bit software (in most cases, you can just install a package designed for Slackware with no special work needed), and for 64-bit binaries too (which require /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 to be present) such as the NVidia drivers, without requiring compatability symlinks which clutter the root directory and remove the separation of 32 and 64-bit binaries.

The project founder is Fred Emmott.
