DistroWatch.com: Pie Box Enterprise Linux

Pie Box Enterprise Linux

Last Update: Thursday 17 July 2014 04:51 GMT


Pie Box Enterprise Linux is a Linux distribution that is derived from the open source software made available by Red Hat, Inc. It is built from the source RPMs of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Only a small number of packages are modified in order to remove Red Hat's trademarks from relevant images and to skip the RHN registration step immediately after installation. All other packages remain unchanged from those released by Red Hat and there are no packages added or removed. This results in a product that is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The updates and repository service is very similar to the up2date service offered by Red Hat, Inc. It is a subscription-based service under which errata are distributed that have been compiled from source RPM packages that have been released by Red Hat, Inc.

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.
