This saves both download and installation time. Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux is available for download as four CD-ROM images and a DVD-ROM image. The high speed download quota for one disk type version costs 10 € and 15 € for both versions. Lineox expects to release a new version of Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux once or twice a week.

Currently Always Current Lineox™ Enterprise Linux 4.x is available for x86 and x86_64 architectures, but we may add more architectures later.

Scientific – a Linux distribution built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and addressed to scientific institutions. The development of the operating system since 2004 is managed by the European Center for Nuclear Research CERN (Switzerland) and the American Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). From version 7.x, the main sponsor and coordinator of the project is Fermilab.

System images are available as installation and live media for the i386 and x86_64 hardware architecture. Live versions are equipped with KDE, GNOME and IceWM desktops.

Goals:
– Provide a stable, scalable, and extensible operating system for scientific computing
– Support scientific research by providing methods and procedures for enabling the integration of scientific applications with the operating environment
– Use the free exchange of ideas, designs, and implementations to prepare a computing platform for the next generation of scientific computing

As James Amundson, the Head of Scientific Computing Division announced (April 22, 2019), the Scientific Linux will be discontinued.

The last version | Released: 6.1 | 1999

Deutsche Linux Distribution (DLD) – the first German Linux distribution created in 1992 by Delix Computer GmbH.

The company of Delix Computer GmbH was founded by Dirk Haaga, Nils Mache and Jens Ziemann in 1994. Initially, it was compatible with Slackware, but this compatibility was abandoned when the system was changed from BSD to System V style and RPM introduced as the default package format. DLD was characterized by the translation of almost all documentations and programs into the German language.

At the beginning of 1999, the DLD version 6.0 Professional was certified by IBM as Netfinity Server Proven.
The last version of the DLD 6.1 was released in 1999.

In the same year, Red Hat had taken over the company Delix, and the DLD was discontinued. Dirk Haaga headed the Red Hat Germany GmbH until his accidental death in 2006 as CEO.
An update script was available on the Red Hat FTP server, which facilitates the technical transition from the DLD 6.01 to the current Red Hat Linux 6.1 distribution. On the Red Hat Web server, users will also could find documentation that describes the differences between the distributions and provides guidance on how to transition to Red Hat Linux 6.1. The DLD beginner support as well as the DLD mailing lists and FAQs was continued until the end of 1999.

MostlyLinux – a distribution derived from sources made available by Red Hat. However, MostlyLinux includes additional packages not supported by RHEL. These are out of the box support for ntfs and various mpeg coder and decoder.

MostlyLinux Voyager2 contains all that you need for desktop or server. One can supplement CentOS, Red Hat or Scientific Linux installation with mostlylinux repository for mp3, mp4, xvid, mkv and ntfs file support. Live DVD installs gnome-mplayer, google-chrome, filezilla, VirtualBox and more.

MostlyLinux is a software company based in Jharkhand, India. The company does mostly the same things other Linux companies do including Enterprise support, corporate training and custom distributions. They also are building a distribution called MostlyLinux. MostlyLinux 9.1 is the latest offering. The distribution is based on Fedora core 1 with lots of additional software.

MostlyLinux chooses packages based on functionality, without the licensing concerns that have kept some of these packages out of Fedora. This is not a system for free software purists. MostlyLinux 9.1 contains a kernel with XFS and NTFS support; it includes multimedia applications like Mplayer, Ogle and Xine; a full suite of packages from LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project); and more.

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 4.03 | November 30, 2005

Tao Linux – a Linux distribution based on RHEL which is a very active RHEL clone that tries to be as compatible with RHEL as possible. As the authors say on their pages, it is a distribution based on RedHat Enterprise Linux source packages.

The installation did not differ from the distribution of CentOS, Fedora or other distributions built on RedHat. So it is the same Anaconda installer with the same installation procedure identical to other clones.

Like CentOS and other RHEL clones, Tao Linux has almost identical controls and looks. So who ever came to RedHat or Fedora to come in will be at home and in this distribution. This distribution contains the Magicdev package, so the embedded media is automatically detected and the corresponding application is opened.

Although Tao Linux is a distribution as well as RHEL primarily designed for the server, it can be used on a desktop as well. Its great plus is compatibility with RHEL, so for a long enough time nobody should have trouble updating.

Crash Recovery Kit for Linux

Desktop environment: text
Architecture: x86, x86_64, SPARC

Media: Live CD/Floppy
The last version | Released: 2.6.11.10 | May 18, 2005

Crash Recovery Kit for Linux (CRK) – a specialist Linux distribution contains a tool which can recover your crashed PC.

CRK doesn’t use any graphical desktop environment, it works in text mode only.
The older versions were based on Red Hat Linux, but the latest ones on Mandrake Linux (newer name: Mandriva).

Using CRK you can do, for example:
– recovery of a trashed LILO boot record. How many times does it happen that some person installs windows 98/95 after he/she installed Linux? Well in that case windows 9X just overwrites the MBR record and Linux won’t be able to boot anymore.
– backup over the network in the form of tar.gz tarballs. Both FAT16, FAT32, ext2 and all filesystems which Linux supports in a read/write fashion can be taken care of. The strong part of the CRK is when a disk is replaced or repartitioning is being done. The CRK boots a complete mini Linux with networking where all possible hardware which is inside the Linux kernel is available.
– testing hardware of new Intel based machines.
– detecting versions and types of hardware. The Linux kernel holds a large database of hardware supported. Booting a Linux kernel doesn’t only resolve if the hardware is ok, it also show its specs. This can be handy if one wants to check-out an old/new PC which is for sale.
– recovery of a misconfigured or hacked Linux system. Well that can happen. /etc/fstab can be wrong or the root password is unknown etc.
– make a tape backup of a disk which can’t be booted anymore.

The distribution is available for x86, x86_64 and SPARC machines.
Crash Recovery Kit for Linux developer is Robert M. Stockmann.

Kondara MNU/Linux – a Linux distribution based on the Red Hat Linux and is precompiled for Pentium or Alpha systems.
The main focus of Kondara MNU/Linux appears to be on creating an open source distribution that supports Japanese and places heavy emphasis on graphics.

Kondara comes in two versions: one that is aimed at desktop systems and another that is aimed at server systems. This clearly shows that a Linux system can work equally well as desktop workstation, server or both at once.

Kondara MNU/Linux includes a separate applications CD-ROM, packed with RPM packages, along with Sun’s StarOffice 5.2. As in most RPM packages, there are separate directories for i586 (Intel), Alpha, and noarch (short for no architecture) for packages not specific to any architecture.

The “MNU” is an expression of a sound made when you touch a penguin, and is derived from “Mount is Not Umount”.

The project was under development between 1999 and 2002.
