DistroWatch.com: Heretix

Heretix

Last Update: Thursday 17 July 2014 04:51 GMT


Heretix (formerly known as Rubyx) is a young GNU/Linux distribution managed entirely by heretix, a Ruby script. Heretix boasts a clean design and a pragmatic package handling concept. It is not a "point-and-click" distribution, but it is easy to use for everyone who is not afraid of the shell. And Heretix is written in readable Ruby code, offering every user the opportunity to understand how their system works.

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (219)
  • 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.
