An older version of the distribution supported the i486 platform and used the LXDE desktop environment.
The distribution was a derivative of Zenwalk Linux, and thus Slackware.

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).

CompactBSD – a set of tools that allow you to compress OpenBSD onto a small (32MB) compact flash card for use in small embedded servers. CompactBSD can be used to power wireless hot spots, which is what FatPort uses it for.

CompactBSD offers the easiest way to get OpenBSD up and running on Compact Flash-based systems such as the FatPointOEM. In order to use the ZComax 200mW PCMCIA wireless card in your FatPointOEM box, you will need to add a patch to the OpenBSD 3.1 kernel.

CompactBSD runs on an i386-class box running OpenBSD3.1, it also requires that Python 2.1.2 be installed.

The project developer is Ken Simpson.

Media: Live
The last version | Released: 1.1 | May 2001

emBSD – a stripped down version of OpenBSD. The concept for emBSD is a small foot print operating system for x86 (or other) hardware to use as little hard disk space as possible yet provide a fully functional Routing Firewall. The main driving force behind this concept is to not use a hard disk drive at all, but use off the shelf Compact Flash cards.

emBSD is a very small system designed for specific purposes. emBSD is not currently a server base OS. It is simply made to filter, control, and forward traffic within your organization. The kernel has been optimized specifically for handling large flows of traffic as well as providing extra interfaces for migrating to IPv6. An optimal emBSD system will not have moving disks inside to potentially fail. Solid-state disks are employed on the majority of our critical machines.

The project developers are Ken Rice and Truman Boyes.

CD Bootable OpenBSD firewall – the project allows you to set up a full featured OpenBSD firewall without the use of a hard disk. The system boots from a CDROM and stores configuration information on either a floppy, or a USB mass storage device, such as a “pen drive” or a USB CompactFlash reader.

The CD also contains a simple install script, to allow you populate a floppy or UMASS device with a basic firewall configuration. Simply boot the CD, select the media you wish to use, and answer some straightforward questions.

The latest version, based on OpenBSD 3.5, adds several new features. The firewall now provides PPTP VPN and a caching nameserver out of the box.

Features:
– OpenBSD 3.5 NAT Firewall using PF
– No hard disk needed
– Automated setup
– Can run with all media Read-Only
– DHCP on internal LAN
– Nameserver and Cache
– PPTP VPN

System requirements:
– x86 compatible processor
– 64M ram bare minimum (all writable filesystems are on ramdisks, and there’s no swap)
– CD-ROM drive
– floppy drive, or umass device (note the current issue with umass)
– 2 network interfaces
