Fuduntu - A Fedora remix for Laptops and Netbooks

Filed under
Linux

I had some extra time this weekend and started playing around with remixing Fedora 14. My remix is hosted on SourceForge and should work with pretty much any Eee (and laptops + desktops too). It was an educational exorcise for me, but if it gains enough traction maybe I'll do more with it.

I chose the name as a pun on Ubuntu and Fedora (it sounded funny), avoiding their trademarks in both cases.

Some of the tweaks:

Enabling OOo quickstart
Moving /tmp and /var/log to RAM disk
Setting swappiness to 10
Adding Jupiter for power savings
Gnome default desktop tweaks (too many to list really)
Gnome Terminal color tweaks

rest here
