Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 1

Filed under
Linux

I'm proud to announce the availability of Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 1. This is the first test version for Myah OS generation 3. This is simply a live CD showing off the the base system. Myah OS is no longer based or related to any existing linux system. All packages have been compiled by me from build scripts I have written. Myah is now a i686 system. Since this is a completely new system there is still a lot of work to be done. This test release is for those who would like to see the work done so far. This is not meant to be a stable release in anyway it's not even an alpha version.

As I said Myah has been compiled from the ground up. Here are some of the apps and libraries that make up this new system.

XFCE 4.4.0 with all the extras. Themed for MyahOS.
kernel 2.6.20.2 aufs squashfs with lzm
Beryl you will need to configure xorg.conf file for your system.
Xorg 7.2
Mesa 6.5.3git
Firefox 2.0.0.1 with mplayer plugin java 1.6.0 flash 9 and all the codecs.
Xine
Mplayer
XMMS
Xpaint
TuxPaint
Xsane
Gimp
Abiword
Xchat
Gaim
Gpated
Xfburn
Wifi Radar
Cups
Graveman
Streamtuner
Xarchiver
xfce4-taskmanager
xfce4-mixer

The new system is also using a simple package management system I have created. It utilizes tar.bz2 compression. At this stage there is only installing and removing of packages. But it is intended to include simple dependency checking and network installing and updating.

If you would like to try out the Tech Demo, read the Manual, or get

It will likely just be called Android M until it's released, but Google has an internal code name just as it did for L and K. It's called Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC), a name which is already being referenced in AOSP. Read more
