A Linux distribution. A Linux system rescue disk.

  • Note - If you just want to repair your boot loader, try boot-repair.
  • I'm sure an updated version will use systemd, as Gentoo now does.

Ångström was started by a small group of people who worked on the OpenEmbedded, OpenZaurus and OpenSimpad projects to unify their effort to make a stable and user-friendly distribution for embedded devices like handhelds, set top boxes and network-attached storage devices and more.

  • Properly titled Ångström
  • It's the default Linux distribution for the Pandora.
  • It has/had support for the Zaurus SL-C1000, but I haven't tested it there.
  • Yocto Project-approved.

A (the) Free/Libre version of Slackware.

  • 2016-03-31 - They're using Slackware 14.1, so they're alive now. I'm not interested in checking them out though.
  • 2015-05-15 - This was dormant/discontinued for some time and has only just starting to awaken. Nearly-non-existent community. Obviously needs love. "KISS" is for developers not users. Not enough magic.

Rogue Class is a toy Linux distribution for playing games and reading books.

  • 2019-11-17 -- It appears to be dead.
  • 2015-05-11 -- Just doesn't do it for me. Too simple, no liveUSB, (requires?) burning to a CD. I have no clue if it can use Slackware packages. I guess everything has to be compiled from scratch, which I don't want to do.

  • 2015-05-11 - The community is as tiny as it is. Last released 2014-04-05. I guess I'd have to build all applications from source, which I don't want to do any more.
