Projects / Arudius


Arudius is a live CD Linux distribution based on Slackware (Minislack/Zenwalk) and Linux Live scripts. It contains an extensive set of software tools used by information security professionals for information assurance and vulnerability analysis. Its goal is to include the most complete set of useful security tools and still maintain a small footprint so it can fit on a 210MB mini-CD.

        •  03 Jan 2006 15:16

          Release Notes: Numerous bugs in the boot process and "copy2ram" option were fixed, so now Arudius can load and run fully from the RAM. Over 20 new security tools were added to the list, and the size of the ISO file was further decreased by carefully selecting only the packages needed for Arudius to run.

            Release Notes: Fixes several bugs that caused the system to complain at boot time about errors in mounting the root filesystem. Please note that this is not a bug in Arudius but a bug in UnionFS (used for live CDs), which will be fixed soon according to the authors.
