The ROCK Linux
distribution has new Mission
, even more recently revised
"After 10 years of ROCK, we felt it's about time ;).
is a new roadmap
ROCK Linux is one of the oldest projects that provides a Linux Distribution
Build Kit. That is, ROCK Linux provides the tools you need to create a
customized distribution from source packages.
The Crystal ROCK target
ISO image is available for those who want a quick start and it is used as a
test case for ROCK Linux. One part of the mission statement is to test and
guarantee functionality of the basic packages, including Crystal ROCK.
This includes issuing security advisories and maintaining errata documents.
The ROCK Linux Build System uses shell scripts to keep it easy to modify
the build to your requirements. Support is provided for Alpha AXP, ARM,
HPPA-RISC, IA-64, MIPS, PowerPC, Sparc, x86 and x86_64. According to the
roadmap ROCK developers are working on hal/dbus integration,
udevtrigger/udevsettle integration into bootdisk and /etc/initscript,
hotplug rules for udev, and more for the next release. A new installer
will be in the works after that. While there has not been a new release of
ROCK Linux for some time, one is planned for the near future.
So check out the ROCK Linux
Manual and build the distribution that's right for you.
