What is NoMad?
NoMad is a linux distribution based on the
encap package managing system for ease
of installation and upgrades.
What possessed you to create yet another distribution of linux?
None of the other ones provided exactly what we wanted. I feel that the
Red Hat file system is a bit messy and
Slackware was horrible if you ever wanted
to uninstall software. Aside from that it's pretty fun and a great learning
experience. It's also nice to give something back to the Linux community.
What does NoMad stand for?
Well, for awhile there we were getting kinda aggravated with other distributions.
It's kinda a small joke that NoMad "won't make you mad."
Which compiler does NoMad use?
Right now NoMad uses gcc-2.7. There is an encap of pgcc, but we don't have the
time or space to compile and store two copies of everything.
Which libs does NoMad use?
Libc5. Maybe when someone starts paying us for our developement time we'll make
a glibc version. :)
Can I get NoMad on CD?
Awhile back we burned a few copies of NoMad onto CD, but we don't have any more
spares. If you're really interested in getting NoMad on CD, let
me know and keep watching the web site.
You never know when we might get our hands on a burner again.
Why is it nomadlinux.com and not nomadlinux.org?
That was a slight mistake when our domain was registered. It doesn't really make
a difference as far as we're concerned.
