Linux Distribution: Myah OS

Myah OS 2.2 is available for download. 2.2 is running on the very latest Slackware 11 packages with the exception of the KDE packages. I used an older release because of some problems with mounting media that are happening due to Slackware's lack of HAL.

About Myah OS
About Myah OS 2.2

Myah OS is a performance destkop operating system. We have taken the powerful linux kernel. With the rich full featured KDE desktop. And 3D video acceleration and multimedia support. So you can have a powerful simple to use home operating system.

Slackware for there base system that is simple fast. Linuxpackages.net and Slacky.it sites as I also use packages found on them sometimes. Linux-live.org and Slax for there tools in making a live CD from slackware. I used tools information and packages from these sites to get a basic system that I could build from. Myah is not just a compilation from these sites. I build many packages myself from source. But those resources gave me a working system to build from. Here are some of the software you will find in 2.2.

Releases:
2008-06-27 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 "Dragon" has been released    View
For all current fans of Myah OS and all those soon to be, we give you Myah OS 3.0 Dragon. Dragon is the code name for Myah OS built around the KDE 3 desktop. We chose KDE 3.5.9 since it's still considered the most stable and best supported version of KDE. As with all other versions of Myah OS, Dragon has full multimedia support and a wide range or software. There is a complete KDE desktop as well as Koffice, Ktorrent, Amarok and many more KDE base software. Dragon brings the best of KDE and the best of Myah OS together in the same system. There has been several updates since the release of Box. The backup LXDE desktop now uses Metacity instead of Openbox as the window manager. Firefox has been updated to 3.0. Fusesmb was added for those who want to mount there Samba shares through fuse.
2008-06-24 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 "Box" is available    View
Myah OS 3.0 Box is now available. This is a complete Linux solution built around the Light X11 Desktop Environment. The LXDE desktop is designed to be the smallest, fastest and yet fully functional desktop for *Nix systems. It's important to note that Box is not meant to be a light system. Instead it's meant to be a fully functional system built around a light desktop. There are many extremely light Linux systems out there already like DSL and Slax. Myah OS 3.0 Box is for people who want a full blown system built around a light desktop. Box comes with much of the same software that was found in Mouse Pro. It has all the same multimedia support. You will be able to create 3D modules with blender, create graphics with inkscape or what ever else that may interest you.
2008-06-04 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 has been released    View
The long awaited Myah OS 3.0 is here. 3.0 has been in development since 2006 right after the release of version 2.3. Being completely development from the source up has been quite an undertaking. The initial release is the flagship of the Myah OS range dubbed Mouse Pro. This name is due to the fact that it's built around the XFCE 4.4 desktop, and comes with a complete development environment.
2008-02-04 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 Beta 1 is available    View
Myah OS 3.0 Beta 1 is now available. This first beta release debuts many long awaited features. Myah OS users now have the ability to Add or Update package right over the Internet. It also includes a Full hard drive installer and a USB live installer.
2007-10-27 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 Alpha 1 is available    View
Myah OS 3.0 alpha 1 is now available to kick off the 3.0 release cycle. This first alpha release has been very carefully put together. The only thing really missing so far is the graphical installer, which is under construction. This release is a live CD that includes package utilities and all development tools.
2007-06-02 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 3.0 Tech Demo 2 is out    View
Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 2 is now available. This is still a development release but it should be fairly stable and have a well rounded selection of applications. It should mirror what the Xfce version of 3.0 will look like. There are still three objectives that need to be met before 3.0 stable: firstly, to get the system well tested to weed out any bugs or setting changes, secondly, to work on Myah's package management system, and finally, there is still no actual installer. Both binary packages and source packages will be made available and since the bulk of the system has been completed, development should come much faster from now on.
2006-10-24 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 2.3 has been released now    View

2006-09-28 00:00:00.0 Myah OS 2.3 RC1 has been released now    View
Myah OS 2.3rc1 is now available for download. I know it's only been a week or 2 since 2.2 came out but I have been working day and night making improvements. I was tired of waiting for slackware to fix there problem with KDE 3.5.4 needing hal and dbus. So I worked it out them myself adding hal, dbus and a kdebase package that has there support. So now Myah OS has the latest KDE 3.5.4 with all the propper support. I have also changed the Myah installer to give the option to install LILO into partition not just the Master Boot Record. I have updated the kernel to 2.6.18.
