Yesterday I have released Dotsch/UX 1.2.

Dotsch/UX is a Linux distribution for BOINC which easily installs and boot from a USB stick, hard disk and from diskless clients and also has some interfaces to setup the diskless server and the clients automatically.

For more informations have a look at http://www.dotsch.de/Dotsch_UX

New features in 1.2 :
• Build in NVIDIA CUDA support, a additional tool to enable and check the NVIDIA CUDA support.
• Persistent Live CD mode for testing the distribution as Live CD and store the data on a USB stick/disk
• Automated and semiautomatic backup of the BOINC client data and some other OS data
• Included Ganglia for performance monitoring of the Dotsch/UX Grids
• Pre Installed BOINC client 6.10.17
• Removed a lot of unneeded packages in the x86 and x64 distribution
• A lot of bug fixes and enhancements

Special thanks to all the peoples which supported and helped to make the new distribution possible !

Great job!

But why have you built this distributive based on Ubuntu? Here is an opinion of Crunch3r, "Collatz Conjecture" project's developer:


"Any Linux Distribution is better than Ubuntu and all it's derivates since it causes to many trouble due their weired kernel experiments.

Personally i use Gentoo and am running openSuSE on production servers.
Fedora is a good choice as well."

The usage of the distribution is a personal opinion.

Ubuntu had good performance, very good documentations, ran stable, good security and bug fixes and a very friendly and helpful community. Also Ubuntu is the most used Linux Distribution and is very usable for newbies and expirianced users.

Everything, I had required as base was given by Ubuntu, and the deployment and modifications for Dotsch/UX I had planed was possible.
