vi inoltro l'annuncio della versione 1.0 di dynebolic, una distro live
free-software-only sviluppata da dyne.org

e' pensata per le esigenze di media-attivisti, artisti e insegnanti. 
offre un'interfaccia grafica ed una serie di applicazioni, per l'uso
della rete e del multimedia 

e' un sistema operativo GNU/Linux completo, che non necessita
di venire installato su hard disk per essere utilizzato: gira infatti su
cd-rom e non tocca in alcun modo l'hard disk del computer

lo sviluppo di questa release e' stato portato avanti anche al makrolab,
uno strano laboratorio su un'isola deserta nella laguna di venezia:

nel cd di dynebolic e' inclusa anche la registrazione di una jam session
musicale, tenutasi negli angusti spazi del makrolab una notte del mese
scorso...come sono felice: il mio primo contributo ad una distro :))

   you can find the complete ChangeLog file including lists of changes
   for past releases (but not for all of them..) at the address

   if you are interested in development, you'll find project pages of
   dyne:bolic on http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/dynebolic


   Dyne:bolic is a distribution with personality! what does this means?
   that some choices have been made in its development courses, to
   distinguish it from other distributions and to avoid a duplicate
   effort or feature overlap - common thing in the free software world
   indeed. some guidelines followed in the making of d:b :

    - you don't install dyne:bolic on your harddisk neither add
      applications, it just comes as is out of the box,
      == it works as it comes and that's it
    - you don't have large quantities of applications to solve a single
      task, no need to lookup different implementations and learn
      multiple softwares doing the same thing.
      == dyne:bolic chooses for you, if you choose dyne:bolic 

    - this distribution focuses on multimedia production and not only
      fruition, to enhance the horizontal topology which can shape the
      net nowadays, depending from the softwares available to users.
      == more than free use, free software is free speech

    - dyne:bolic is compiled completely from scratch, is not made out of
      any other distribution, and is currently the creation of a free
      software artisan following his vision, wich doesn't aims to be a
      general solution for everything, but just an artwork.
      == keep it simple, take the best out of that simplicity

   To verify the above, i hope you'll take your time and give it a try!
   Furthermore, let's have a look on some hot features implemented in
   the last 2 years of development: CLUSTERING, NESTING, XBOX,

   This is the most recent and one of the most appealing feature in
   dyne:bolic, thanks to the OpenMosix project implementing this linux
   kernel function, to makrolab.ljudmila.org which gave dyne.org time
   and space to research on the topic. What it is about?

   Basically whenever you boot dyne:bolic on a local network,
   configuring it or having it configured automatically thru DHCP, the
   system automatically discovers for other dyne:bolic running on it and
   joins them in a CLUSTER: which means they SHARE their CPU POWER like
   a "supercomputer" made out of many small computers.

   This function has been something quite hard to implement until today,
   being experienced succesfully just in the research domain, but now
   with dyne:bolic you can have it without even a single click!

   If you boot more dyne:bolic on your network each of them will take
   advantage of others, using up their spare cpu cycles in case of
   inactivity, to accomplish faster to the tasks running on a single
   machine. our motto: EL CALCULO UNIDO JAMAS SERA' VENCIDO! ;)

   What in dyne:bolic is called NESTING is a truly revolutionary
   approach to the way operating systems have been shaped so far, and
   dyne:bolic is the first (and so far only) distribution really
   implementing it.

   The concept is simple: you don't install anymore the whole operating
   system and applications on your harddisk, but just your data and
   configuration settings. If you want to upgrade your system you simply
   have to get a new CD, and now you can even automatically update it
   from the net. This way you will save considerable amounts of space on
   your storage devices, while gaining better stability and avoiding any
   possibility of misconfiguration of the system.

   Furthermore, the way NESTING is done is very efficient: you just
   create ONE FILE of the size you want, on the partition you choose (on
   the harddisk or usb pen), no matters which filesystem you have (works
   also with windows on your harddisk). The file will be called
   'dynebol.nst' and will store all your data, and it can be encrypted
   with an AES128 algorithm using a 20 chars passphrase! It will be then
   recognized by dyne:bolic at every boot to let you find back your
   files and settings.

   All this is possible with dyne:bolic in a few clicks! check out the
   'taschino' graphical installer included in the config tools and
   create your nest - and if you want to get rid of it it's very simple,
   just delete the dynebol.nst file in the root directory of the
   partition where you installed it!

   The NESTING will keep being a stable solution for data storage in
   dyne:bolic, tools for managing the nest and customize its attributes
   are allready under development. This feature has been ideated and
   implemented by jaromil, currently developing the software tools that
   render it reality.

:: XBOX game console support

   Dyne:bolic runs on MODDED XBOX consoles, which means XBOX consoles
   which have been modified to run softwares that are not signed by
   micro$loth. This features lets you get out a decent computer,
   perfectly suitable for a surf station or for a CLUSTER node, out of a
   simple and CHEAP toy as a game console.
   Considering that the occidental christmas is approaching, with its
   consumistical waste of stuff, get ready to load a truck with old XBOX
   models sold at cheap prices, then go and make a cluster supercomputer
   out of old toys, booting them with your dyne:bolic CD!

   XBOX support has been made possible thanks to the great work that the
   linux-xbox.sf.net project has been doing in the past year, plus the
   development activity of Smilzo, who is now looking forward to tweak
   more upcoming toys and turn them into a productive dyne:bolic


   Thanks to the collaboration of PUBLIC VOICE Lab and the recent
   support from the Open Source Streaming Alliance, dyne:bolic can offer
   to its users seamless integration with an online streaming server as
   publicvoice.fm which aims to be a broadcasting point for free and
   indypendent online radios.

   This feature is currently under development, but allready usable in
   its testing phase. If you are doing online radio and you are looking
   for a broadcast server, you can consider to join the community around
   the publicvoice.fm server, shaping itself in a way that can be
   sustainable for its bandwidth costs and, most important thing,


   Dyne:bolic includes many softwares, result of the great work being
   done by the GNU/Linux free software community thru the past 10 years.
   To mention just a few of them:
     Mp4Live, lets you stream mpeg4 audio and video on darwin server
     FreeJ, to perform on video livesets as a freejay
     MuSE, to mix and stream your voice and sound files live on the net
     HasciiCam, to have a cool (h)ascii webcam, also on low bandwidth
     TerminatorX, GDam, SoundTracker and PD, to perform with live audio
     Kino, Cinelerra and LiVES, to edit and publish video clips
     Audacity and ReZound, to edit audio and add effects on it
     Gimp, the GNU image manipulation software to edit your pictures
     Blender, one of the most powerful 3d modeling and rendering tools
     AbiWord and Ted, to read edit and save any kind of word file
     Bluefish, to generate and edit your html webpages
     Sylpheed and Gpa, to send and receive mails, with full encryption
     Lopster, which lets you do filesharing over winmx and gnutella
     Samba, to easily exchange data over shared directories in LANs
     XChat, linphone and other messaging softwares for fast comunication
     VNC and RDesktop to remotely access any Win or Unix desktop
     Lots of network tools, for analysis and poweruser access to the net
     Xfe, an intuitive local file browser recognizing all file types
     GCombust, to easily burn data on CDs on machines with a cd-burner
     XRmap, to easily browse the world geography and the CIA factbook
     And, last but not least, lots of great games also to be played
     in multiplayer mode, online with your friends running dyne:bolic!
   In the user's manual is being collected information on each
   software distributed in dyne:bolic, including the homepage, where to
   find the specific software's manual, the author's name and the year
   in which it was started; so that you can start to move your first
   steps in this brave GNU world with dyne:bolic, getting in touch with
   the wider world and communities surrounding it.


   One of the main task in developing dyne:bolic has been the effort to
   support as much hardware devices being found around, autodetecting
   them. So far, this support stand to a good and satisfactory point:
   most computers, especially desktop computers, are supported, while
   some laptops might have problems - but anyway dyne:bolic was thought
   especially for people not having a laptop, making them able to carry
   all their data and operating system in a small usb-key and a CD.
   Regarding specific devices, we have support for PS2 and USB mouse and
   keyboards, USB connected storage devices and photo cameras, FIREWIRE
   video cameras, serial and ADSL modems, TV cards and sound cards,
   cdrom and burners, webcams and more. The best way to proceed to check
   the support for your device is to verify if it is included into the
   2.4.20 Linux kernel: dyne:bolic includes all of its modules, and

   Also most VGA cards are supported, then dyne:bolic will run in
   1024x768 higher resolution (being able to switch to other modes); in
   particular on Matrox and i810 cards there is also support for 3d
   acceleration. It might work on other cards too, but i have only those
   to test at the moment.
   Of course there are always a few exceptions to this support list and
   you can help us to make it better with bugreporting :) also consider
   that as they will come out new devices and dyne:bolic will get older,
   it might be the case that it will support less configurations. So if
   you are reading this after one year of its release, consider
   upgrading to the latest version of dyne:bolic before resigning to
   your problems!


   dyne:bolic GNU/Linux in its 1.0 version is RASTA SOFTWARE :) by me
   jaromil http://rastasoft.org i'm also author of the included
   softwares MuSE, FreeJ and HasciiCam, as well of other scripts and
   configuration softwares.

   game console support and help in development has been contributed by
   Smilzo http://sfrajone.org who is a great hacker and hardware expert
   old friend of mine, we are born in the same city in south italy :)

   significative support in development has been also contributed by
   bomboclat http://autistici.org/loa/bomboclat also author of bolic1
   another console based distribution, slick tool for network analysis

   and last but not least has to be mentioned the contribution of
   c1cc10 http://autistici.org/loa/c1cc10 another author of bolic1
