The last version | Released: 1.0.25 | October 14, 2009

Caos Linux – an independent, RPM based Linux distribution developed by the CAOS Foundation. The CAOS Linux Project was first initated because of the need for an openly managed, RPM based version of Linux. CAOS NSA (Node, Server, Appliance) pursues the “sweet spot” concept for a Linux distribution.

CAOS Linux is designed to run on all x86_64 and i386 based hardware ranging from clusters and servers to production level appliances to personal desktops and laptops. Scientific research labs, public agencies, ISP’s, private enterprise, virtualization and cloud computing ventures will find CAOS Linux to be an integral component to their operation.

CAOS NSA focuses on being a lightweight, fast, efficient, stable, and secure distribution of Linux that is appropriate for servers, compute nodes, network appliances, and even the latest desktop and laptop computers.

Supporting a wide variety of software, CAOS Linux is based on the best aspects of GNU/Linux and has full binary compatibility with the most popular enterprise distribution of Linux.

The CAOS Linux installer would be found easy to use by both an experienced admin or a Linux newcomer. Users can either have a fully automated install (including HD partitioning) or they can take full control from the install prompt. The automated CAOS Linux installer, Cinch, is a very user friendly, written from scratch and open to use by other distributions. Your CAOS system has the advantage of grabbing the latest packages from our online repository during installation, guaranteeing your system is up to date. Post-installation configuration is simple through either Sidekick, our server administration Swiss Army Knife, manually, or via the web using an industry compatible webmin tool.

In 2010, Chris Smart the developer of the project re-born the distribution and moved the base system from Gentoo to Fedora Linux as its remix. With the release of version 18 (May 2013), the system changed its name to Korora.

The main assumption of the Korora project is providing a complete and easy-to-use general-purpose operating system.

Korora is available for i686 and x86_64 machines with KDE, GNOME, Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce desktops.

Along with the Fedora base system, Korora also provides a set of additional applications, full multimedia support, codecs, plugins, etc.

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.
