We are exited to share with you the first development release of a new flavour of siduction. As the name suggests, noX is a version of our distribution without a X-server. That might be a interesting release for our users for different reasons.
There is people that like to work without a graphical interface. We have packed a plethora of useful tools for that purpose into noX. Another use case could be that you would like to build your own system from scratch. Then you can build on noX to add software to your liking. If you need a quick testbase or want a clean development system, noX can be installed and ready in minutes. This siduction-noX development release, codenamed paintitblack, ships with siductions own kernel 3.6.1 and gcc-4.7 and weighs in at 360 MByte. ISO images as well as a torrent file for 32- and 64-bit surroundings can be found on our mirrors.
The released images are a snapshot of Debian Sid from 2012-10-15. They consist of a base siduction system with GNU tools and other handy helper applications from a variety of areas.
Other than our siduction admin tools you will find elinks-lite, ffmpeg , glances, hddtemp , hdparm, htop, iotop, iftop, imagemagick, john , mc, moc, nano, ncdu, rkhunter, screen, signing-party, smartmontools, strace, weechat, wvdial, whohas and many others.
The siduction distribution is a desktop-oriented operating system and live medium based on the "unstable" branch of Debian GNU/Linux. Forked from aptosid in late 2011, siduction offers three separate live media with KDE, LXDE and Xfce desktops. The project also promises regular releases, an open development model, and friendly relationship with its developer and user community.
