Linux Video Project

The Linux Video Project attempts to create a live-system suited for most media. It currently weighs 25 MB and boots on any x86 system, initializes its hardware (most notably sound), and plays video on that system. It uses the ROCK Linux Distribution Build Kit for building the live-system.

    Release Notes: Support for multiple languages was added. The configuration menu and the live system can be translated using simple text files. Additionally, the live system has been modified such that if there is only a single file to play, it will be played automatically. Afterwards, you will be put into the graphical menu.

      Release Notes: The usual package updates were made (freeglut 2.4.0, udev 090, xorg 6.9.0, ROCK Linux 7368). UPX was replaced by UPX2 for in-memory decompression, so now bash and mount are also compressed. An opt-in feedback option was implemented. A check-for-updates option was added.

        •  12 Feb 2006 15:27

          Release Notes: This release is focused on code cleanups. The reasons for strange error messages when using unencrypted LVP discs have been fixed. Also, there's the usual round of package updates, which have been merged from ROCK Linux rev. 6947.

          •  18 Nov 2005 11:51

            Release Notes: Unnecessary programs were removed from the live system, decreasing its size to 25 MB. Hardware detection and /dev population were fixed, so sound should work again without manual intervention. The startup message was changed to reflect the fact that you do not need to be root if you don't use encryption. The question about multi language buttons for .ogm and .mkv files was made optional and defaults to no.
