Live Label for BeleniX LiveCD

with one comment

As per Moinak “BeleniX” is from the Celtic (pronounced Kel-tik) Sun God Belenos.
(and it is not be prounnounced “Be Linux” 🙂 )



If Belenos was to appear in Asterix and Obelix comics, Gauls might call him Belenix.
Asterix and the Gauls have a special bond with the Solaris group in Bangalore IEC.
Many of the Ultra 10 desktops, that we started the center,
were named after one or the other comic character from the Asterix or newly invented
names ending with -ix.

So this CD label for BeleniX shows a really excited and “live” Sun God Belenos, along with a Celtic knot-work border.
His nose coincides with the hole in CD,
it would be amusing to put a finger through that hole, making his missing nose come alive!

Moinak has released BeleniX 0.2 a LiveCD based on OpenSolaris. It now starts up a XFace desktop GUI, with Firefox, Gaim and more [download]. Compressed ISO image is about 220Mb. It booted up like magic on my Ferrari laptop, and played Beethoven on Xmms.

BeleniX rocks and rescues!

leave a comment »

Moinak has released a new Live CD distribution of OpenSolaris BeleniX.
Just burnt a CD to try it out – it is live and it rocks! I liked the way it mounts the other partitions (like windows or Solaris) available on hard disk. It can also be used as a rescue CD. In case you brickify your system – you have a handy and complete Solaris instance to boot and login!
