Relase: Mossix (Myanmar OSS LInuX) LiveCD

This is the realease of Mossix (Myanmar OSS LInuX) LiveCD for historical reason. It is not for production, only for demonstration purpose, comes with absolutely no warranty and provided "as is". Please also note that it's no longer developed/maintained/supported but planned for further version under different name may be same as project.

It is based on Gentoo-2004.2 and features the following applications and uses m17n library and pango with m17n module released in Myanmar OSS Enabling Kit CD by Myanmar NLP Reserach Center for support of Myanmar Unicode-
*Gnome 2.6.2 ( with Excellent Lila Theme (
*Mozilla Firefox 1.0.3 ( patched with pango support
*Gedit 2.6.2 (
*SCIM 1.2.1 ( with scim-m17n- for Input
*m17n-lib and m17n-db 1.1.0 (
*Pango 1.6.0 ( with m17n module (activated for only Myanmar script)
*Gcalctool 4.3.51 ( - ui not translated
*Gthumb 2.2.1 ( - ui not translated
*Gtranslator 1.1.5 ( used for translations in this LiveCD - ui not translated

The translations included in this LiveCD are just for demonstration and so not accurate, not consistent and even wrong in encoding sequence as lack of support for basic checking for wrong encoding in m17n library. That's why I started to develop my own module of Pango for Myanmar script.

Please visit the Sourceforge project website to download and hope to get bug reports and feedbacks from Myanmar Community...

Prahita OpenSource Project aims for enabling Myanmar Unicode in OpenSource Softwares. The development may include Libraries, Fonts and Other utilities. All credits go to Myanmar NLP Research Center, its members and contributors as this project will never exist without their initial efforts.
