Unity Linux 2010 Beta 1 Released!
The Unity Linux project is pleased to announce its first beta release, 2010 Beta 1.
Mandriva-based Unity Linux utilizes the MkLiveCD project, which allows developers to create their own distribution on top of a Unity Linux core (or “trunk”). Unity Linux thus strives to provide a solid, well maintained foundation that developers can use as a starting point to build their own “remastered” distributions, or as we like to call them, “branches.”
Currently, Unity Linux offers both 32-bit and 64-bit LiveCDs. Nearly 7,000 packages are available after installation. In an effort to give distribution developers maximum flexibility, the core is kept small and usable, but not too basic. Unity Linux provides developers with the bare minimum– just enough to make use of remaster tools, the smart package manager, a 22.214.171.124 kernel, and rpm5.
To facilitate easy access to packages, Unity Linux utilizes an SVN repository which also houses internal projects. All the necessary tools as well as a basic tutorial for building packages are already provided via our documentation wiki. An automatic build system to work with the SVN repository is in progress along with many other tools to make Unity the most functional project to start a personal or professional branch.
