ClearOS is a network and gateway server distribution derived from RedHat and CentOS. Formerly known as Clark Connect, it is developed and maintained by the Clear Foundation, an IT solutions provider based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Installation: ClearOS is designed to be installed to a hard disk. The installation program is ncurses based and offers two installation modes – Gateway or Standalone. In Standalone mode, ClearOS may be installed with or without the firewall module. Support is available for LVM and software RAID configuration. By default, the installer uses a non-LVM disk partitioning scheme, creating just two partitions – one of about 76 MB for the /boot partition, and the other for the main partition. Ext3 is the only journaling filesystem available.
