0Linux – a complete French-language GNU/Linux operating system for 32-bit and 64-bit x86 machines, built from scratch and based solely on itself, for general use. 0Linux attempts to learn how to use a Linux system: many configuration files are translated into French and contain comments on their use; the installer asks to use the command line to inform the system, but assisted.

The included graphical environments are: Enlightenment, Fluxbox, KDE, Razor-qt, XBMC and Xfce. An early integration of GNOME is underway.

Special features of the system:
– The system uses the Spack package manager (“* .spack” packages)
– Packages subscriptions make easy to install packages (any KDE, GIMP and its plugins, LAMP server, etc.)
– The system updates and installs packets via the online tool 0g, which handles the inter-packet dependencies
– The system is initialized with “BSD” scripts, such as Slackware, among others, under /etc/rc.d/rc.*
– All tools specific to 0Linux start with “0” to find them easily from the command line
– The kernel is compiled with the maximum number of options and modules and is optimized for multimedia processing
– 0Linux 64 bits has the particularity of being “multilib”: architectures i686 and x86_64 can cohabit within the same system. It is thus possible to compile and run 32-bit and 64-bit software
– Distribution “semi-rolling”: it goes from one version to another (eta -> theta for example) with a simple 0g
– A system construction scripts are available to recompile the distribution yourself or write your own recipes

Special features of the source code:
– Packages are sorted into categories according to whether they are command line tools, libraries, graphical applications, network tools, development tools, or are linked to an environment (X, KDE, Xfce, etc.)
– A recipe for each package is “multiarch” (tested for i686 and x86_64)
– Scripts contains compile and automatically install packages or sets of packages and run a build server.

Byzantium

Byzantium

Web site: http://project-byzantium.org/
Origin: Unknown
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: Razor-Qt
Architecture: x86

Byzantium – a live Linux distribution based on Porteus Linux that delivers easy-to-use, secure, and robust mesh networking capabilities.

The goal of Project Byzantium is to develop a communication system by which users can connect to each other and share information in the absence of convenient access to the Internet. This is done by setting up an ad-hoc wireless mesh network that offers services which replace popular websites often used for this purpose, such as Twitter and IRC.

These services and web apps were selected because they are the ones most often used by activists around the world to find one another, exchange information, post media, and organize. They were also selected because they stand the best chance of being easy to use by our intended userbase, which are people using mobile devices like smartphones, MP3 players, and tablet PCs.

Unlike most mesh implementations, a Byzantium Mesh requires no specialized equipment that may not be easy to get during an emergency, just an x86 computer with at least one 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless interface. It will run on just about any x86 computer, including later generation Macbooks.

Source Mage – an independent and a source-based GNU/Linux distribution, originally forked from Sorcerer.

Sorcerer GNU/Linux distribution has been released in 2000 by Kyle Sallee. The project was closed down in 2002, after Chuck Mead forked it into Lunar Linux. The remaining Sorcerer GNU/Linux development team brought the Sorcerer back and continued development. Due to Sorcerer licensing, the new form changed its name to Source Mage.

Packages to be installed, are automatically downloaded, compiled, and then installed. Each package is called a “spell”, and its package management program is called “sorcery”. To install a package the user must “cast” that spell. A set of available spells is called a “grimoire”. To uninstall a package the user must “dispel” the spell.

The installable iso images were available for i486, x86_64 and PowerPC machines.
