    Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable distribution, an operating
    system which works directly from the CD without the need to install
    or change anything on the hard disk. It is user-friendly, recognizes
    your hardware devices (sound, video, firewire, and USB), and offers a
    vast range of software for multimedia production, streaming, 3D
    modeling, photo, peer-to-peer filesharing, Web browsing and
    publishing, word processing, email, encryption, and networking. It
    also includes games and a world navigator. It does automatic
    clustering, joining the CPU power between any other dyne:bolic on the
    local network, and works on modded XBOX consoles as well.

    dyne:bolic 1.0 it is shaped on the needs of media activists to
    stimulate the production and not only the fruition of digital and
    analog informations.
    It takes birth as a grassroot effort to spread free software and the
    spirit of sharing informations.

    see a more detailed list of features and possibilities, as well a
    list of included applitations, in the dyne:bolic user's manual,
    currently under development:

    you can find the complete ChangeLog file including lists of changes
    for past releases (but not for all of them..) at the address

    if you are interested in development, you'll find project pages of
    dyne:bolic on http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/dynebolic


    Dyne:bolic is a distribution with personality! what does this means?
    that some choices have been made in its development courses, to
    distinguish it from other distributions and to avoid a duplicate
    effort or feature overlap - common thing in the free software world
    indeed. some guidelines followed in the making of d:b :

     - you don't install dyne:bolic on your harddisk neither add
       applications, it just comes as is out of the box,
       == it works as it comes and that's it

     - you don't have large quantities of applications to solve a single
       task, no need to lookup different implementations and learn
       multiple softwares doing the same thing.
       == dyne:bolic chooses for you, if you choose dyne:bolic

     - this distribution focuses on multimedia production and not only
       fruition, to enhance the horizontal topology which can shape the
       net nowadays, depending from the softwares available to users.
       == more than free use, free software is free speech

     - dyne:bolic is compiled completely from scratch, is not made out of
       any other distribution, and is currently the creation of a free
       software artisan following his vision, wich doesn't aims to be a
       general solution for everything, but just an artwork.
       == keep it simple, take the best out of that simplicity

    To verify the above, i hope you'll take your time and give it a try!

    Furthermore, let's have a look on some hot features implemented in
    the last 2 years of development: CLUSTERING, NESTING, XBOX,


    This is the most recent and one of the most appealing feature in
    dyne:bolic, thanks to the OpenMosix project implementing this linux
    kernel function, to makrolab.ljudmila.org which gave dyne.org time
    and space to research on the topic. What it is about?

    Basically whenever you boot dyne:bolic on a local network,
    configuring it or having it configured automatically thru DHCP, the
    system automatically discovers for other dyne:bolic running on it and
    joins them in a CLUSTER: which means they SHARE their CPU POWER like
    a "supercomputer" made out of many small computers.

    This function has been something quite hard to implement until today,
    being experienced succesfully just in the research domain, but now
    with dyne:bolic you can have it without even a single click!

    If you boot more dyne:bolic on your network each of them will take
    advantage of others, using up their spare cpu cycles in case of
    inactivity, to accomplish faster to the tasks running on a single
    machine. our motto: EL CALCULO UNIDO JAMAS SERA' VENCIDO! ;)


    What in dyne:bolic is called NESTING is a truly revolutionary
    approach to the way operating systems have been shaped so far, and
    dyne:bolic is the first (and so far only) distribution really
    implementing it.

    The concept is simple: you don't install anymore the whole operating
    system and applications on your harddisk, but just your data and
    configuration settings. If you want to upgrade your system you simply
    have to get a new CD, and now you can even automatically update it
    from the net. This way you will save considerable amounts of space on
    your storage devices, while gaining better stability and avoiding any
    possibility of misconfiguration of the system.

    Furthermore, the way NESTING is done is very efficient: you just
    create ONE FILE of the size you want, on the partition you choose (on
    the harddisk or usb pen), no matters which filesystem you have (works
    also with windows on your harddisk). The file will be called
    'dynebol.nst' and will store all your data, and it can be encrypted
    with an AES128 algorithm using a 20 chars passphrase! It will be then
    recognized by dyne:bolic at every boot to let you find back your
    files and settings.

    All this is possible with dyne:bolic in a few clicks! check out the
    'taschino' graphical installer included in the config tools and
    create your nest - and if you want to get rid of it it's very simple,
    just delete the dynebol.nst file in the root directory of the
    partition where you installed it!

    The NESTING will keep being a stable solution for data storage in
    dyne:bolic, tools for managing the nest and customize its attributes
    are allready under development. This feature has been ideated and
    implemented by jaromil, currently developing the software tools that
    render it reality.

:: XBOX game console support

    Dyne:bolic runs on MODDED XBOX consoles, which means XBOX consoles
    which have been modified to run softwares that are not signed by
    micro$loth. This features lets you get out a decent computer,
    perfectly suitable for a surf station or for a CLUSTER node, out of a
    simple and CHEAP toy as a game console.

    Considering that the occidental christmas is approaching, with its
    consumistical waste of stuff, get ready to load a truck with old XBOX
    models sold at cheap prices, then go and make a cluster supercomputer
    out of old toys, booting them with your dyne:bolic CD!

    XBOX support has been made possible thanks to the great work that the
    linux-xbox.sf.net project has been doing in the past year, plus the
    development activity of Smilzo, who is now looking forward to tweak
    more upcoming toys and turn them into a productive dyne:bolic


    Thanks to the collaboration of PUBLIC VOICE Lab and the recent
    support from the Open Source Streaming Alliance, dyne:bolic can offer
    to its users seamless integration with an online streaming server as
    publicvoice.fm which aims to be a broadcasting point for free and
    indypendent online radios.

    This feature is currently under development, but allready usable in
    its testing phase. If you are doing online radio and you are looking
    for a broadcast server, you can consider to join the community around
    the publicvoice.fm server, shaping itself in a way that can be
    sustainable for its bandwidth costs and, most important thing,


    Dyne:bolic includes many softwares, result of the great work being
    done by the GNU/Linux free software community thru the past 10 years.
    To mention just a few of them:

      Mp4Live, lets you stream mpeg4 audio and video on darwin server
      FreeJ, to perform on video livesets as a freejay
      MuSE, to mix and stream your voice and sound files live on the net
      HasciiCam, to have a cool (h)ascii webcam, also on low bandwidth
      TerminatorX, GDam, SoundTracker and PD, to perform with live audio
      Kino, Cinelerra and LiVES, to edit and publish video clips
      Audacity and ReZound, to edit audio and add effects on it
      Gimp, the GNU image manipulation software to edit your pictures
      Blender, one of the most powerful 3d modeling and rendering tools
      AbiWord and Ted, to read edit and save any kind of word file
      Bluefish, to generate and edit your html webpages
      Sylpheed and Gpa, to send and receive mails, with full encryption
      Lopster, which lets you do filesharing over winmx and gnutella
      Samba, to easily exchange data over shared directories in LANs
      XChat, linphone and other messaging softwares for fast comunication
      VNC and RDesktop to remotely access any Win or Unix desktop
      Lots of network tools, for analysis and poweruser access to the net
      Xfe, an intuitive local file browser recognizing all file types
      GCombust, to easily burn data on CDs on machines with a cd-burner
      XRmap, to easily browse the world geography and the CIA factbook
      And, last but not least, lots of great games also to be played
      in multiplayer mode, online with your friends running dyne:bolic!

    In the user's manual is being collected information on each
    software distributed in dyne:bolic, including the homepage, where to
    find the specific software's manual, the author's name and the year
    in which it was started; so that you can start to move your first
    steps in this brave GNU world with dyne:bolic, getting in touch with
    the wider world and communities surrounding it.


    One of the main task in developing dyne:bolic has been the effort to
    support as much hardware devices being found around, autodetecting
    them. So far, this support stand to a good and satisfactory point:
    most computers, especially desktop computers, are supported, while
    some laptops might have problems - but anyway dyne:bolic was thought
    especially for people not having a laptop, making them able to carry
    all their data and operating system in a small usb-key and a CD.

    Regarding specific devices, we have support for PS2 and USB mouse and
    keyboards, USB connected storage devices and photo cameras, FIREWIRE
    video cameras, serial and ADSL modems, TV cards and sound cards,
    cdrom and burners, webcams and more. The best way to proceed to check
    the support for your device is to verify if it is included into the
    2.4.20 Linux kernel: dyne:bolic includes all of its modules, and

    Also most VGA cards are supported, then dyne:bolic will run in
    1024x768 higher resolution (being able to switch to other modes); in
    particular on Matrox and i810 cards there is also support for 3d
    acceleration. It might work on other cards too, but i have only those
    to test at the moment.

    Of course there are always a few exceptions to this support list and
    you can help us to make it better with bugreporting :) also consider
    that as they will come out new devices and dyne:bolic will get older,
    it might be the case that it will support less configurations. So if
    you are reading this after one year of its release, consider
    upgrading to the latest version of dyne:bolic before resigning to
    your problems!


    dyne:bolic GNU/Linux in its 1.0 version is RASTA SOFTWARE :) by me
