DistroWatch.com: Beehive Linux

Beehive Linux

Last Update: Friday 21 June 2013 06:02 GMT


  • OS Type: Linux
  • Based on: Independent
  • Origin: USA
  • Architecture: i686
  • Desktop: Fluxbox, KDE
  • Category: Desktop
  • Status: Discontinued
  • Popularity: Not ranked
Our goal in creating Beehive Linux was to provide a fast, simple, secure i686 optimized Linux distribution without all the cruft and clutter. What we wanted was something that was fast to install and setup, something that didn't by default include 500 megs of stuff we didn't want or need. And something that had native ReiserFS support built in. We just wanted something better. Something tighter. Something cleaner. Beehive Linux is a distribution made by system administrators, for system administrors. It's intent is to provide fast and clean setup of workhorse servers and workstations. If you're looking for wizards and whizbang gizmos, you are in the wrong place. If you want to setup servers with the services you and/or your users need, you are in the right place. Beehive also works well as a workstation and X, E, BlackBox and KDE are included - this is not the primary focus of Beehive but hey, every admin needs a workstation as well right? Beehive Linux is not for the inexperienced, or those new to linux/*nix. Beehive Linux is for people that know what they're doing and want to get the job done as well as possible in the least amount of time.

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (217)
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.
