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.

It might have been an act of god, but I ran into no luck with Karoshi. It booted up alright but probably got the screensetting wrong and it looked like a DOS v.3 turnout. Firefox didn't know what to do because Karoshi didn't hook us up to the net and Synaptic Manager was helpless as well - no internet. As far as other programs were concerned ---> very sparse. It did find my printer however. Sorry - a 4 is the max I can release ......

Muito boa essa distro. Mão na roda para administradores de rede que procuram opções de Ad, File Server, etc . Eu estava a procura de uma solução opensource para substituir meus Servidores MS, chegue por acaso nesta e já gostei de cara!
