the goal of project is to make alternative grub2 configuration system. currently supports current GNU/Linux OS and Windows
System Configurator is a utility for automatically configuring networking and bootstrapping in a Linux Distribution and Architecture agnostic way.
This project provides a modification of the Linux boot sequence that allows a continuation of the boot process only if an encrypted filesystem can be used after entering a password. Without a successfully mounted filesystem the boot process will stop
GRUB boot loader compiled for ARM platforms
Small Linux console getty that is started on the Linux text console, asks for a login name and then tranfers over to /bin/login. Is extended to allow automatic login and starting any app.
"Tiny windows 2000 terminal" is a simplest way to deploy diskless terminals for windows 2000 terminal server. Like LTSP or other, but don't need additional Linux server because no X windows, no NFS and no swap needed for terminals. Work at i486 with 8
Extended Operating System Loader (XOSL) is a full-featured free boot manager with a real, easy-to-use and full-blown graphical user interface. XOSL-OW is an Open Watcom port of XOSL 1.1.5 (Dec 23, 2000) by Geurt Vos developed with Borland BC31.
qinit is a fast, small, simple replacement for init. It does NOT read rc.d, or init.d; rather it is configured similarly to dwm. Meant to be built against dietlibc.
Enables the possibility of suspending a machine to disk under Linux. It does not need either APM or ACPI support. Software suspend creates an image which is saved in swap partition(s) or a regular file. At the next boot, the kernel detects the saved imag
Linux port to the Realtek RTL8181 wireless gateway SoC.
The NotNet (Notebook Network) Profiler lets you specify a linux kernel boot parameter and loads the chosen network scheme (+ related services). When logging in, it changes the browser's proxy configuration according to the current network scheme.
The OpenBIOS project provides you with most free and open source Open Firmware implementations available. Here you find several implementations of IEEE 1275-1994 (Referred to as Open Firmware) compliant firmware.
MinopsOS is a tiny operating system for PC computers.
MinopsOS is a tiny operating system for PC computers. It's small enough to fit inside the boot sector of a floppy disk.
AutoFsck is a script for Linux operating systems (specifically the Ubuntu family) which deals with the annoyance of a periodic fsck runs on boot by moving the checks to shutdown.
This project is dedicated for supporting large SMP and cc-NUMA platform configuration using ACPI 2.0 or later, including cc-NUMA configuration support and implementation of various module drivers for hotplug, sleep states and large I/O subsystem.
An XML-based tool used to schedule uptime spans that uses the Linux real time clock (RTC) daily alarm to automatically power on the system before the span begins. Tools to test whether the system must stay on (attempt to halt) are included.
This is a small Linux rescue CD, suitable for booting systems that have become unbootable. Everything is loaded into RAM - once the machine has booted, you can remove the CD from the drive. It should fit into leftover CD space, eg on a business card
The Banana Kernel is an open-source pedagogical operating system intended to provide useful means for teaching basic OS concepts, with the possibility of interaction with external modules developed by the teacher or student.
This loadable kernel module (LKM) allows the overlaying of several seperate file-systems (which are potentially read-only) to allow reading from either fs and writing to one of them. Gives the unionfs of other OS\'s to linux (linux-2.4 mostly).
Blob is a boot loader for SA11x0 (StrongARM) platforms. Blob is able to boot a Linux kernel stored in flash or RAM and provide that kernel with a ramdisk (again from flash or RAM).
Sets out to be an innovative new operating system while retaining compatibility with POSIX and Win32
OPEN BootKnife is a boot collection. It's main purpose is to provide users with a collection of tools, apps, & operating systems. Inspired by grub4dos, OPEN BootKnife hopes to be the only boot disk you will ever need.
OpenBoot Manager, is aimed to be a highly customizable boot manager. The main focus is to create a great looking, easy to use, OS independent boot manager, with limitless potential.
XOSL2 is a free, full-featured boot manager with an easy-to-use and full-blown graphical user interface built off the original XOSL by Geurt Vos. XOSL2 will allow installation from CD, new hardware support and more. http://www.XOSL2.com
