Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • 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 "plasma-desktop" 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.

Very nice! I keep the iso -file on my hard disk and include it in the grub menu, thus having a rescue OS at hand. The size of the iso is about half of alternatives like grml or systemrescue. Yet the only command not provided for my needs is xfsdump. Setting up locale and keyboard parameters by means of the `finnix` -command could be simpler and does not seem very logical to me. Altogether highly recommendable to have a bootstick or an iso of Finnix on your disk in case something goes wrong - which will occur sooner or later to anybody.

I'm using Finnix since version 108, definitely my favorite tool in my tool box.
All the tools you need from a cli distro for data recovery, period.
