Kongoni GNU/Linux is a Slackware-based, desktop-oriented GNU/Linux distribution and live CD.

Kongoni GNU/Linux is a Slackware-based, desktop-oriented GNU/Linux distribution and live CD.

Its main features include a graphical installer, a Kongoni Integrated Setup System (KISS), and an easy-to-use Ports Installation GUI (PIG).

The distribution's package management borrows its main concepts from BSD ports, with an intuitive graphical package installer that compiles and installs programs from source code on the user's system.

Kongoni, which means gnu (also known as wildebeest) in Shona, includes only software that complies with Free Software Foundation's definition of software freedom.



Besides the updated packages and scripts, we also remove OpenOffice and switched to Koffice, which seems to be more lighter and faster.

The idea would be to free up some space on the live-cd for other applications which would be need it by everyone. Also OpenOffice its kind of sluggish and I suppose, it can be always installed after. PIG is removed also from the system tray (will not start automatically) in this release and will be added back when I will be able to clean-up a bit the git repository, but anyway, it’s still in the system, but I wouldn’t recommend anyone to use it at this point.

Until the git is all nice and clean you can use the slackpkg application to install, remove and/or update the system (Do not use the clean-system option from slackpkg, it will destroy the system).

Update:

 Kongoni GNU/Linux Robert Gabriel has announced the availability of the release candidate for Kongoni GNU/Linux 2011, a Slackware-based desktop distribution and live CD with KDE: "I'm very happy to announce the release candidate of Kongoni 2011 (Firefly). Since beta 2 a lot of bug fixes were done to this candidate, a lot of packages were migrated from Slackware and also brand new packages were added. There is a better accessibility support in KDE, Speech Dispatcher and eSpeak are installed by default in the live CD and also they were built against KDE Accessibility. KDE was updated to version 4.6.3 due to some bugs in the core of KDE and in some applications coming with KDE. Chromium was fully removed from the live CD and repository; apparently I didn't check if Chromium is FSF-compliant and it turns out that it is not. So now, the default web browser in Kongoni is IceCat which was upgraded to version 4.0.1."

More details in the release announcement.
