DistroWatch.com: Neat-GNU/Linux

Neat-GNU/Linux

Last Update: Friday 21 June 2013 06:02 GMT


Neat-GNU/Linux is going to be like any other GNU/Linux distribution with a couple of differences, the most notable is the installation procedure, but also by keeping the number of packages at a minimum, hence the name; Neat. The installation is not done by copying precompiled packages but by actually compiling packages from source and then install them to the system. By making the list of software as small as possible we hope to create a system that is easy to maintain, that requires little space on the hard drive(s) but at the same time is fully functional. We will also try to include configuration scripts for some administrative tasks, like setting up the network, to make it easier to administrate. Update: As of December 2002, the Neat GNU/Linux distribution is no longer available.

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.
