Cool, it even seems to be up-to-date. they have a kernel 2.5 version available for download.
no X!!!!??!??!! heh. I don't think this is something you want for a desktop environment. Myabe for a router or firewall.

lol sinetific, it's just a kernel, nothing more.


Never argue with fools... They will only drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience...

No Predator, it is more than just a kernel. Its the kernel with a compiler, certain daemons and utilities.

sinetific, as i said before it's just a kernel. And yes it seems that they did add a few enhanced tools also, but it still is just a kernel.
You still need a distribution to get this thing to run.

Ok your right on this one. Its a modified/securified kernel and tools. No type of installer. I should have looked closer before making posts. They say its an "operating system" But its only a kernel+utilities. But really all they need is an installer like LFS uses and you can have your barebones linux OS.
