gNOX beta 1 released

Posted by DJMaze on (3948 views)
One of the CPG-Nuke members has released his own distribution on linux on cd. Checkout the website because the theme on his dragonfly is realy cool. The gNOX 1.0 [beta] ISO is finally up, unfortunatly it has not been verified at the server end, so If anyone can notify if the md5sum doesn't match then please do asap. I hope gNOX beta works for you all - but chances are it might not, so please report any bug info that you discover in the forums. http://www.gnox.org/Forums.html

You can get hold of your copy from the following link (http only) http://www.gnox.org/ md5sum : fc805de00f3a83d87a535a66ee3d337f gNOX-1.0-b.iso PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not redistribute this software yet, as I wish to have a 2 week testing period before a general release. Remember - visit the forums : http://www.gnox.org/Forums.html Best Regards, gNOX.org Staff

Hello shimon :: in answer to your questions

gNOX uses gnome 2.6 because it requires the 2.4.x series linux kernel. I would love to use gnome 2.8, but unfortunatly that requires the 2.6.x kernel for severel key features to work.

The reason gNOX cannot use the 2.6.x linux kernel *yet* is because of gNOX is psudo-writable, using the overlay filesystem (OVLFS) This means you can install & add to the live CD in a session, as if it were installed on your PC rather than just a regular LiveCD. This also makes the use of Modules a great advantage, as a gNOX user can mix & match different modules to suit their taste, try out new software when it has been converted into a module, or create their own modules using gNOX. Modules can be added to the ISO and burnt to CD *or* my personal favourite is to use Modules on-the-fly, so If I need to use something, I can download it somewhere and just issue a command to load it into memory Smile

In the future gNOX will use kernel 2.6 & GNOME new release, but this will only be when something like unionfs is made available with kernel 2.6 compatability - untill then I will test gNOX with the current kernel.

I understand you like ubuntu, yes I like the distro too, Its a GREAT distro! ... but to compare without trying gNOX is strange, maybe you just meant the look of the desktop ?
