Gentoox

Origin: United Kingdom
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: AfterStep, Blackbox, Fluxbox, GNOME, IceWM, WindowMaker, Xfce
Architecture: XBox
Based on: Gentoo
Wikipedia: Gentoox
Media: Install
The last version | Released: 7.1 | January 28, 2009

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.

March Linux – a simple, lean, fast and Arch Linux based distribution for a desktop which urges the users to learn Linux instead of holding their hands at every step.

Just like Arch Linux, from which it is derived, March is also a lightweight and flexible distro which tries to Keep It Simple. Configuration is very easy, mostly involving editing of text-files. Although a few GUI config tools are available, they all try to be compliant with the Arch way, which essentially stands for “freedom of choice, keep it simple, learning, and user-control”. This is what the guiding philosophy of March aims to be.

At the same time, March Linux offers you a ready-to-run environment with a Fluxbox desktop and a host of useful apps.
You can do the following right out of the box :
– Listen to music and watch movies in a variety of formats, record sounds
– View pictures and perform graphical editing
– Connect to and browse internet, check emails, download via torrents, perform ftp transfers
– Play a number of cool games, including a few DOS based ones
– View and edit document files, create spreadsheets, view pdf-s, perform calculations, take notes
– Do small programming in a number of languages with an IDE

March is designed to run amply well on a 128 mb RAM machine, PII or later (or equivalent); a 160 mb RAM is recommended for best performance.

Local Area Security (L.A.S.) – live-CD Linux distribution for information security professionals. It contains over 250 security tools including all the usual suspects (Nmap, Nessus, etc.) as well as many other great tools less well known. The ISO images are meant to be burned on 185MB and 210MB miniCDs which they update around twice a month. The distribution was available in 2 different versions of L.A.S. to fit two specific needs – MAIN and SECSERV.

The project was started in 2002 to research information security related topics. During that time there was no real live-CD toolkit focused on information security. So Jascha, the project founder built one from a stripped down version of Knoppix called Model-K. Both of which were built from Debian Linux. Up until version 0.4 L.A.S. Linux was command line only. After that, FluxBox was added as the desktop since it is light weight and very feature filled.

A few of the tools that wewe available in the distribution: etherape, mozillafirebird, argus-server, argus-client, arpwatch, bfbtester, cabextract, cflow, dlint, farpd, recover, gtkrecover, nasm, nast, strace, ltrace, sudo,valgrind, pnscan, isic, splint, sendip, scli, scanssh, rarpd, wellenreiter,router-audit-tool, httpush, bass, scansort, scanerrlog, idsa / idsaguardgtk, crank (for fun), ccrypt, ntfstools, pasmal, bruth, hlfl, less, smbfs, smstools, LinNeighborhood, snmp, snmpd, driftnet, Dillo, admsmp, admsnmp,arptool, di, hammerhead, flawfinder, foremost, md5deep, binutils, findutils,file, gall, libpst, libdbx, rda, ntreg, memfetch, stegdetect, mkpersistenthome, mkdosswap, pv, cscope, scanlogd, cgrep, bsed, vlad, warscan, zodiac, angst, hackbot, mieliekoek.pl, screamingcobra.pl, cmospwd, macchanger, vomit, atmelwlandriver, wlcardconfig, sshstart-knoppix.

KibZilla

KibZilla

Web site: kibzilla.kibla.org
Origin: Slovenia
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: Fluxbox
Architecture: x86
Based on: Independent
Wikipedia:
Media: Live
The last version | Released: 0.95 | October 20, 2003

KibZilla – an independent live Linux distribution based on rpm packages.

The project embarks on the creation of a stand-alone Linux distribution based on RPM packages, but its main feature is the use of a CDROM drive. It also allows installation on a hard disk. The distribution would be intended for use on the Intel x86 platform. In the foreground, the distribution would be intended for use at publicly accessible points, such as cyber cafes, e-points.

The main advantage is a graphical interface that is entirely modified by the Mozilla.org project. The graphical interface is produced in XUL language. In this way, programs that are intended for use in Mozilla should be started within the Mozilla. The project has similar guidelines than the oEone’s (www.oene.com) product, the HomeBase product, but it is commercial, and some parts that are intended for use within the Mozilla are issued as open source.

The system achieves utility on the level of a regular computer with Microsoft Windows, an Internet browser and a word processor. The end product would not restrict the use of other linux programs on distribution, and it could also be run from an XUL interface (video conferencing programs, openoffice, etc.).

For all components of the Mozilla, existing translations could be used: The interface in the XUL language, Installation program and documentation is available in English and Slovenian.

The live system components:
– a simple and intuitive graphical interface written in the XUL programming language
– FluxBox window manager is also suitable for inexperienced Linux users
– a well-executed version of the very expanded and popular Mozilla Open Source browser (version 1.4)
– Composer/Editor – powerful web site editor
