Tablix on Morphix – a bootable CD based Linux distribution with automatic cluster configuration. This means that all you need for a functioning PVM3 cluster is a bunch of computers and a pile of Tablix on Morphix CDs. You just have to boot the master node of the cluster from the CD, click a few options on the screen, then boot as many slave nodes as you want and click OK on each.

What is Tablix?
Tablix is a powerful free software kernel implementing a parallel genetic algorithm. It can be used to solve a large subset of discreet multivariable optimization problems, but is specially optimized for timetabling. Because of its modular design it is relatively simple to adapt Tablix to needs of a specific organization. Coarse-grained parallel algorithm can also fully exploit any multi-processor machine that supports PVM3 – from modern multi-core CPUs to clusters of low-end machines connected by a local area network. Specifically this means most users will want to use Tablix on Linux or another UNIX-like operating system.

Tablix on Morphix comes preinstalled with all programs that are needed for solving timetable problems with Tablix. Some of the software available on the CD:
– mlview, gedit, vim (for editing Tablix XML configuration)
– mozilla (for previewing generated timetables! )
– ggv (for reading documentation)
– most of GNOME desktop environment

Version 0.0.1 is the first experimental release of this project.

The project developer is Tomaz Solc.

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
