DeadWait: Dynataz is Live – The Hybrid of Dynamips & Dynagen on a Live CD

Written by LBSources from on August 7th, 2008 | 2 Comments

So it seems that Dead Wait has found a new distribution even smaller than Slack and approximately 30MB in size. He’s dubbed it DynaTaz, based off of the Slitaz linux distro

SliTaz is a free micro GNU/Linux distro using BusyBox, a Linux kernel, and GNU free software. The goal of SliTaz is to have a GNU/Linux distro working in memory (RAM). Installable to a hard disk, with good support for French language web, it offers reliability, high performance and PC recycling. SliTaz boots with Syslinux and provides more than 200 Linux commands, the LightTPD web server, SQLite database, rescue tools, IRC client, SSH client/server powered by Dropbear, X window system, JWM (Joe’s Window Manager), gFTP, Geany IDE, Mozilla Firefox, Alsaplayer, Gparted, a sound file editor and much more. SliTaz’s ISO image will always fit on less than 30 MB, and try and give you a reasonable selection of software.

He’s also moved his site to a new domain. Catch up with him if you’re out of the loop. In da Wok

As per his post regarding Dynataz:

So im putting up the first version on dynataz ( dynamips on live cd) up for download and testing, the size is a lean, mean 29.3 mb, only possible due to the amazing developers of Slitaz , a few differences here, you have to manually mount your ntfs partition. which is quite easy actually , once the live cd starts just click on the spider–> system tools –> mount devices , you can do a list to check which is your windows partition and type in that device and select /media/windows as the mount point and just click on ntfsmount.

Rest all remains the same, dynamips and dynagen are both ready and actually installed in the /opt folder also a images and working directory has been created there. so for your working directory use the option /opt/wkgdir . thats it.
