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.

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

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 !

Das Projekt befindet sich z.Z. noch in der Alpha Test Phase, und hat nicht permanent WUs zur Verfügung. Im Server Status siehst Du, wenn das Projekt wieder WUs zum Berechnen hat :

I got still download errors of the MacOS Intel application, as written in the other thread.

The Windows application aborts with the following errors on Vista (32 bit) :
