Linux Distribution: ByzantineOS
ByzantineOS is a software Internet Appliance with a home entertainment bias
It is based on a networked Linux distribution/bootable system with Mozilla providing access to a range of services and applications.
ByzantineOS fits in 32MB (or 48MB) of media and should work on any PC.
Note: With ByzantineOS CD-ROM, there is no need of hard-disks, floppy drives and others. All is needed is a diskless computer with the following parts:
* CPU (Intel Pentium)
* NIC (Network Interface Card) or MODEM
* CD-ROM drive (or DVD drive to play DVD-Video disks!!!)
* RAM (128 MB minimum for full graphics)
* VESA 2.0 compliant graphic card
The ByzantineOS distro is now in its first stable release. It is based on standard GNU/Linux components, mostly compiled without any modification.
* Linux-2.4.22 / Glibc-2.3.2 with devfs support
* openssh-3.7.1p2 (clients)
* DirectFB-0.9.20 / XDirectFB-1.0-rc5
* Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.2_04
