„Linux“ distribution „Knoppix“

IT exhibition „Info 2003“, Kaunas, April 24-26, 2003.

The aim of this project was to present an Open Source operating system.

AKL has presented a localized and partially translated „Linux“ operating system „Knoppix“ at IT exhibition „Info 2003“ in Kaunas.

„Knoppix“ is a bootable CD with a collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. „Knoppix“ can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it.

These are the reasons why we have chosen „Knoppix“ for open source software presentation. For all willing to have free software installed in their computers we burned „live CD“ at place in their CD's.

Project was managed by AKL member Mantas Kriaučiūnas. He is the main initiator of localization, also reporting and fixing bugs of „Knoppix“ distribution in Lithuania.
