DetaolB is a small size x86/uclibc distro, aimed mostly for emulators/virtualizers.
With this iso's size around 60Mb, you've a small yet functional desktop distro which can help developping/debugging C/C++/Fortran/Perl software or compiling the linux kernel. It can then self emulate with included qemu-0.9.0 ;-)
DetaolB v0.8 has been released 18,January 2008 on sf.net
- added debugging capabilities (gdb, ddd)
- added fortran language support
- added many editors (qemacs, Scite, nedit, zile)
- upgrade to perl 5.10 !
- static checker for c/c++ (splint) and fortran (ftncheck)
This distro works preferably in qemu > 0.9.0 or virtualbox > 1.5.4 (they fix the bug: yeah!).
You can play with the grub menu (press the key 'e') at boot sequence and choose the framebuffer resolution you want using the "screen" parameter (example: screen=vga or svga or xga or sxga).
You can choose between a french keyboard (kmap=fr) or stick to the us default. There will be more keyboard maps soon.
