Thread: Lua OS 0.9

  1. #1

    Lua OS 0.9

    Here's a new OS based on Knoppix: Lua OS 0.9 (lua.org).

    Lua OS is a new orthogonally persistent operating system for Lua code based on sandboxes and object-oriented IPC. (Or should we rather say: ISC - Inter-Sandbox-Communication.)

    The Live-CD

    • is based on Knoppix
    • should (should!) run on any standard PC (even older ones)
    • boots all the way into the Lua OS start-up screen
    • can be run off the CD without modifying your system
    • runs happily in 384 MB of main memory (even without swap space). Give it 512 if you're generous.
    • runs very happily in Oracle VirtualBox
    • has a sexy female voice (for important announcements). (Yeah, it's just the Knoppix voice samples)

    There is also a guide on how to remaster Knoppix/Lua OS.

    As you can read on the page, in the compatibility testing I ran across some problems with certain hardware. The graphics problem on the one PC is weird, it's a standard Radeon card as far as I can tell, and Knoppix just displays random bits instead of a desktop. I'll post more info on this in an appropriate place.
