Linux General

Post by T3rr0rDr0n3 on Wed Jan 04, 2012 11:41 am

Dear forummembers,

I felt like contributing some information regarding Linux builds and usage for those interested or willing to know more
As undoubtfully most of you heared of Linux, or even worked with Linux-based software yourself ( Mainly produced under the GNU License ). I will try to shed some light / provide some additional information regarding the different possible Linux builds and software.

Main LINUX familie trees:
- Debian: Debian GNU/Linux is a distribution that emphasizes free software. It is supported on many hardware platforms. Debian and distributions based on it use the .deb package format and the dpkg package manager.

- Knoppix: Knoppix, itself, is based on Debian.

- Ubuntu: Ubunty is a distribution based on Debian.

- Gentoo: Gentoo is a distribution designed to have highly optimized and frequently updated software. Distributions based on Gentoo use the Portage package management system with emerge or one of the alternative package managers.

- Pacman: Pacman is a package manager that is capable of resolving dependencies and automatically downloading and installing all necessary packages. In theory, a user need only run a single command to completely update the system.

- RPM: Red Hat Linux and SUSE Linux were the original major distributions that used the RPM file format, which is today used in several package management systems. Both of these later divided into commercial and community-supported distributions. Red Hat Linux divided into a community-supported distribution sponsored by Red Hat called Fedora, and a commercially supported distribution called Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

- Slackware: Slackware is known as a highly customizable distribution that stresses ease of maintenance and reliability over cutting-edge software and automated tools. Generally considered a distribution for advanced users, it is often suggested to those who want to learn the inner workings of a Linux operating system.

Those are the main distributed / popular versions of Linux and respectively their explanations.
However Linux is very widespread and contains a large amount of sub-distributions. I will post this exact list with links to the developer sites in another thread and discuss the most widespread distributions here.

However if anyone would like to know more specific information feel free to PM me or post a reply on this topic.
