LowSpecBox: distros para hardware antigo (1)
Nesta entrada vou deixar links para algumas distros e até para BSDs que são excelentes para brincar/aprender/trabalhar mas que requerem muito poucos recursos de hardware e que por isso são óptimas para instalar em máquinas mais antigas, o ideal são mesmo portáteis antigos, uma das razões para a escolha de portáteis é o seu baixo consumo de energia podendo como tal serem um excelente ponto de partida para um servidor caseiro, router, firewall e como têm hardware wireless até permitem criar um hotspot/rede adhoc/mesh, para além disso sempre ajudamos o planeta.
– qualquer BSD serve muito bem para criar uma lowspecbox e com ela aprender UNIX.
Distros e BSDs para routers e firewalls
- IPCop – “is a complete Linux Distribution whose sole purpose is to protect the networks it is installed on. By implementing existing technology, outstanding new technology and secure programming practices IPCop is the Linux Distribution for those wanting to keep their computers/networks safe.”
- m0n0Wall – “is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded PC, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software).
- pfSense – “pfSense is a free, open source customized distribution of FreeBSD tailored for use as a firewall and router. In addition to being a powerful, flexible firewalling and routing platform, it includes a long list of related features and a package system allowing further expandability without adding bloat and potential security vulnerabilities to the base distribution.”
- floppyfw – is a router with the advanced firewall-capabilities in Linux that fits on one single floppy disc.
- Devil-Linux – “is a distribution which boots and runs completely from CDROM. The configuration can be saved to a floppy diskette or a USB pen drive. Devil Linux was originally intended to be a dedicated firewall/router but now Devil-Linux can also be used as a server for many applications.”
- IPFire – “is a linux-distribution that focusses on easy setup, good handling and a high niveau of security. It is operable via an intuitive webinterface, which offers a lot of playground for beginners and even experienced administrators”
- KolibriOS – “is a small open source x86 operating system written completely in assembly. It was forked off from MenuetOS.”
- MINIX – “is a Unix-like computer operating system based on a microkernelarchitecture created by Andrew S. Tanenbaum for educational purposes; MINIX also inspired the creation of the Linux kernel.”
- Haiku – “is a free and open sourceoperating system compatible with BeOS. Its development began in 2001, and the operating system became self-hosting in 2008, with the first alpha release in September 2009 and the second in May 2010.”
- ArchHurd – “is a derivative work of Arch Linux porting it to the GNU Hurd system with packages optimised for the i686 architecture.”
- Debian Hurd – “The Hurd is a set of servers running on top of the GNU Mach microkernel. Together they build the base for the GNU operating system.”
