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

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine.
