Mythbuntu 7.10 070830

"Mythbuntu is an Ubuntu derivative focused upon setting up a standalone MythTV system similar to Knoppmyth or Mythdora. At the time, it is not a Canonical sanctioned project because of the licensing on several of the MythTV dependencies. Mainly, it can be seen as a preconfigured Ubuntu install for mythtv usage. All unnecessary applications such as OpenOffice, Evolution, and a full Gnome desktop are not installed for a Mythbuntu installation. At any time, a user may choose to install ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, or xubuntu-desktop and add a full desktop onto their installation.
Code

The Mythbuntu team works closely with all of the relevant package maintainers in Ubuntu to make sure that our changes, customizations, and enhancements are included within Ubuntu for other users, teams, and projects to take advantage of. Also, all scripts used for our build process are GPL licensed and available to anyone"

Thus, after booting IsaMorph you can immediately prove theorems in any of these logics. The CD includes a offline version of Isabelle's tutorials and theory documentation.
HOL-TestGen (version 1.1.1)

A test case generator for specification based unit testing. It is built on top of the specfication and theorem proving environment Isabelle/HOL.
Proof General (version 3.6pre)

A powerful User Interface for Isabelle.
SML of New Jersey (version 110.56)

The Standard ML Environment used for compiling and executing Isabelle.
GNU Emacs (version 22.0.50)

The GNU Emacs editor which builds together with Proof General the main user interface of Isabelle.
teTeX (version 2.0.2)

A complete LaTeX environment used for the generation of proof documents.

Other Applications

In addition, the CD also contains a variety of applications for a common use. It includes a user-friendly desktop (Gnome) an Internet browser (Mozilla), and so on. Just take a look at the menu to find out many more. I tried to minimize the number of non Isabelle specific software to minimize the download size. [...]

IsaMorph is a GNU/Linux Live CD (based on Morphix) featuring the interactive theorem prover Isabelle. This means, you can boot from the CD and get a fully operational "theorem proving" environment without installing GNU/Linux or Isabelle. Just insert the CD in your PC and have five minutes later your first theorem proven.

All programs distributed within IsaMorph are free software. This means that the operating system and the applications contained in this CD can be freely copied, modified and distributed. So please feel free to give copies to your friends or colleagues."

GeeXboX Sherkhan 20061231

"GeeXboX have taken the decision to integrate Freevo2 into their future release GeeXboX 2.x - a htpc live platform. As both are still under development there is no official release yet however there is a technological preview available if you want to see where it's going. The following is taken from the post on geexbox.org announcing the collaboration;

The decision has been taken to make use of Freevo 2.0 (still work in progress, but so is GeeXboX 2.x) and Kaa, its multimedia framework as our new UI reference. As a consequence, many new packages had to be added (such as Python) to our distribution. In a near future, GeeXboX and Freevo projects will be more tighten than ever, and we should be the official Freevo LiveCD, still keeping in mind our embedded and easy-to-setup approach. Unfortunately, ISO grew up radically (it is now 20 MB) and so does RAM usage (at least 128MB is now mandatory). But, as a development version, don't take it too seriously, it'll still change 'till the final release. If you want to have a try at this technological preview, just grab the GeeXboX 2.x 2006-12-31 ISO and burn it to a CD or try it through VMware or so. Don't look for a generator or try to install it on disk, it is not yet meant for. Don't expect it either to be fully functional, it's still full of bugs and isn't meant to replace the official 1.x series anytime soon. Right now, it can be controlled through keyboard only (arrow keys and Enter/Escape) but should already be able to let you watch some videos, play audio files or view various pictures."

RUNT 5.0

"RUNT Linux: The ResNet USB Network Tester

Once again, it's been a while, but I've put together one more release of RUNT. RUNT 5.0 is built from Slackware 11.0 and has updated versions of nearly every package. Of greatest significance is the much newer 2.4.33.3 kernel, which now supports most SATA controllers, as well as prism54 wireless devices. iproute2 and stunnel have been added for improved functionality. With all of these updates comes a substantial increase in size. I was unable to keep RUNT under 128 MB this time and maintain the level of usability in past releases. This version takes up about 200 MB when unpacked, so at least a 256 MB flash drive formatted with 4k clusters is required.

There is a good chance this is the final release of RUNT because of a number of reasons. First off, as I mentioned in my last update, the usefulness and uniqueness of RUNT is declining. Live CD's are abundant, and USB flash drives are big enough now to just partition and install your favorite distro. However, I've always liked the convenience of RUNT, and the simplicity of installation. Because of the umsdos filesystem, RUNT usually doesn't require reformatting, and it only takes up as much space as it needs, unlike ramdisk and loopback based filesystems. Unfortunately, the umsdos filesystem has been ignored for years now, and has been dropped in the 2.6 kernel. RUNT in its current form depends on the 2.4 kernel, and this release contains a very mature version of that kernel. Perhaps it is the last one Slackware will include. There may be a few options for RUNT's future, but we'll just have to see."

TinyMe test 5

TinyMe test 5 has been released! If you liked test 4.1, you're going to love test 5. :) I am really excited about this release. A lot of late night hours and hard work have gone into test 5, as I've been pushing to get this test out the door before I leave for school in 10 days. The changes for test 5 are almost too numerous to mention. This will hopefully be our last test release before TinyMe Final. Although a few bugs remain, TinyMe has many notable inprovements, including:

  • Fixed most open bugs. Only remaining major open bug (in my opinion) is that TinyMe still doesn't auto mount removable media.
  • I switched to GDM. This allows us greater flexibility with our login manager. Also, it enables Shutdown and Reboot options on logout.
  • AbiWord was installed, with all the plugins your heart desires. Create and edit ODT, DOC, WPD, and many other formats.
  • Idesk now handles the desktop instead of PCManFM.
  • Enabeled LXPanel transparency.
  • Added Grafburn for burning CDs and DVDs. Thanks to Nathan Fisher of Grafpup for Grafburn.
  • Created Welcome page. Fire up Opera to see it. (Did I mention Opera handles web browsing, mail, Bittorrent, and IRC chat?)
  • Conky is a SuperKaramba-like desktop monitoring applet which has been added. GKrellm was fired. :)
  • Do you like music? Audacious was added. Audacious is a lot like WinAmp and you can use WinAmp themes on it.
  • MEdit proved to be somewhat buggy. Although I rather liked it, I opted to use SciTE instead. Enjoy.
  • Changed Mrxvt to the default terminal. Mrxvt is a tabbed terminal, plus it has some pretty cool transparency.
  • Galculator is a quite small calculator added to test 5.
  • Xarchiver has been added for its wonderous abilities to open just about any compressed archive, including RPMs and ISOs.
  • MtPaint was added. MtPaint is a very basic picture editor. You can also use MtPaint to take a screenshot.
  • Super Grub Disk Gparted System Rescue 001

    "Super Grub Disk is a bootable floppy or CDROM that is oriented towards system rescue, specifically for repairing the booting process. Super Grub Disk is simply a Grub Disk with a lot of useful menus. It can activate partitions, boot partitions, boot MBRs, boot your former OS (Linux or another one) by loading menu.lst from your hard disk, automatically restore Grub on your MBR, swap hard disks in the BIOS, and boot from any available disk device. It has multi-language support, and allows you to change the keyboard layout of your shell."

    This version includes Gparted.

    JackLab Audio Distribution 1.0 beta 2

    "A remastered openSUSE for musicians, producers and media creators. [...]

    JAD 1.0 Features

    * Based on openSUSE 10.2
    * Realtime Kernel 2.6.19
    * Enlightenment 17 Desktop
    * Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK)
    * 70 Audio Applications
    * WineAsio for full VST support

    * Multimedia Codec Support
    * Firefox 2.0 [...]

    The JackLab Audio Distribution (JAD) is a complete Linux operating system which comes with a comprehensive collection of free, open source multimedia software for audio visual content creation. JackLab was created primarily for music production and so it comes with a real-time kernel optimised for low-latency recording, the latest and greatest open source music software such as Ardour and Rosegarden and an extensive set of plug-ins and effects. JACK is central program in the toolbox of the Linux musician and unlike most normal Linux distributions JACK and its graphical interface qjackctl are included and work without any troublesome configuration. Multimedia work often demands a lot of a computers resources and so JAD gives you the option of using the lightweight yet beautiful looking Enlightenment 17 desktop environment which uses much less RAM than KDE does. JAD 1.0 is based upon OpenSUSE 10.2 and hence packages (programs) for OS 10.2 should work under JAD 1.0 and vice versa."

    TorK LiveCD Testing Only

    "The TorK project offers a CD that allows you to use TorK and Tor on any computer.

    The official homepage for the CD is anonymityanywhere.com.

    This is a so-called LiveCD. You put it in the CD-Rom drive, turn on your computer and within a few minutes you will be using a Linux system with TorK and Tor running on it. The CD works without installing anything on the computer you use it on. [...]

    The CD is still experimental and not feature complete. It may not even be fully secure yet. It was created using the document maintained on the LiveCD page. Please note that the CD is still under development, so the downloadable CD may lag behind the document described at LiveCD."

There is one thing that stands out from reading the release notes, and that is the major advances with hardware support -- which astounds even me, considering that version 2.16 was released barely 2 months ago."

    http://os.cqu.edu.au/adios/adk.html

    ================================================================

    This CD has a non writable /usr directory, which means it is not able to
    have software installed on it after boot up. The CentOS team is working
    hard to create a Live CD for CentOS 5 that is based on the Fedora Live
    CD Project (that is writable in all directories and even able to be used
    for installs) ... unfortunately we were not able to get this working
    with CentOS 5 for this release. We hope to get that Live CD working by
    the release of CentOS 5.1."

    Microdrive Live Linux 0.2

    "Welcome to Microdrive Live Linux

    A tiny little live cd system. [...]

    * This is basically a set of scripts which you can use to make your own live linux cd.
    * It depends on busybox, isolinux and linux of course.
    * I am planning to build a small bunch of diskless, monitorless, keyboardless nodes to do my rendering work [3D]. For them to run, I have various options but live cd seem to be most trouble free.
    * But then I couldn't find a live cd, that more or less faithfully follows a ordinary installed linux system. They seem to use squashfs or unionfs or some other form of pseudo writable file systems. I couldn't even get the slax to show me a screen. I am sure it is to do with my laptop graphics card.
    * But it sort of inspired me to make my own live cd, so I can match the components to the same library versions of my installed systems.
    * To this end instead of making a single cd, I broke the work needed in to a set of scripts so that the whole thing is manageable and reusable.
    * Hopefully it will be useful to someone else out there.
    * Have a nice day.
    * Released under GPL Do you need to ask! ."
