Berry Linux

Berry LinuxAbout Berry Linux

Berry Linux is a LiveCD distribution which is based on Fedora and Knoppix.  It has support for kernel-2.6, the overlay filesystem, and AIGLX, the 3D desktop, in conjunction with Beryl.  You can also install the distro to your hard disk if you wish, or boot it from USB.  Other features available include: Support for writing to NTFS partitions, automatic recognition of USB storage, uses free Japanese TrueType fonts, and has the ability to save personal settings.  It can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD, or rescue system.

Berry Linux 0.88 uses Fedora's Kudzu 1.2.71 and Klaus Knopper's hwdata 0.200 scripts for i386 hardware detection, features symmetric multiprocessing support, and includes ndev/udev and bootsplash patches. The mini version, the file system only takes up 148MB of space, and uses fluxbox as the window manager, keeping down the system requirements.
