:: WHAT IS DYNE:BOLIC ?
Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable cd, containing a whole
operating system that works straight from boot, without the need to
install or change anything on the hard disk.
If you like and want to have it on harddisk you can simply copy the
/dyne directory on your computer: the simpliest installation ever!
Dyne:bolic is user-friendly: recognizes your hardware devices (sound,
video, firewire, and USB), and offers a VAST range of free software
applications for multimedia production, audio and video manipulation,
sound composition and synthesis, 3D modeling, photography, peer2peer
filesharing, web browsing, desktop publishing, word processing, cd
burning, email, encryption, remote conferencing, funky games, a world
atlas navigator and even more.
Advanced features include: a complete environment with the most
advanced multimedia applications available on GNU/Linux, automatic
clustering joining the CPU power between any other dyne:bolic on the
local network, capability to work well on old PC (Pentium1 64Mb) and
even XBOX game consoles, support to save and encrypt personal data and
settings on a usb key. Dyne:bolic is shaped on the needs of media
activists and artists to promote free speech as a tool for the
production and not only the fruition of digital and analog
There is no company nor organization behind dyne:bolic, it is a
grassroot effort to spread free software and the spirit of sharing
information and knowledge.

:: THIS IS RASTA SOFTWARE !
This software is about Resistance ina babylon world which tries to
control and limit the way we communicate and we share informations and
This software is for all those who don't want to afford the latest
expensive hardware to speak out their words of consciousness and good
will, still offering a complete operating system with more features
than some other proprietary system affected by viruses and full of
This software is free, Jah Rastafari Livity bless your freedom!
You should share this software for the good of yourself and your
people, respect others and let them express, be free and let others be
free. You are welcome to redistribute dyne:bolic in any way you like,
to your friends and neighbours, to anybody who needs or is just curious
to try, as you wish.
The roots of Rasta culture can be found in Resistance to slavery. This
software is not a business. This software is free as of speech and is
one step in the struggle for Redemption and Freedom. This software is
dedicated to the memory of Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey, Marthin
Luther King, Steve Biko, Walter Rodney, Malcom X.
With great respect and solidarity with all those who resist to slavery,
racism, oppression and prevarication, our brother Mumia Abu Jamal still
in prison, everyone fighting all the wickednes in babylon, to seek an
alternative to the egemony of capitalism in our World.
This is the last release of dyne:bolic I series, reaching the best
grade of stability for it.
A new build already started following the toolchain based on gcc-3.4.3
glibc-2.3.4 and of course the Linux kernel 2.6 which will greatly
improve performance in all multimedia tasks.
Dyne:bolic II will be developed using a public Zen Room: a compiler
environment to open customization possibilities and hopefully share the
activity of development among more than one mantainer.
A Zen Room release is already on ftp://ftp.dyne.org/dynebolic/devel
And thanks for all your love :)
