RIP Linux – Recovery is Possible | linuxsysconfig

Don’t worry, Linux is not dead yet. And the $TITLE is not about a new RIP implementation on Linux. The name stands for Recovery Is Possible and it’s in fact a Slackware-based Live OS.

It can be used for various tasks like maintenance, troubleshooting, rescuing an installed system, or even as a Live OS for browsing the Internet, chatting with friends, listening to music or watching movies. All that at a cost of a 90MB ISO image.

RIPLinux comes in different versions (X, non-X, Grub, Grub2, PXE) and it’s a lightweight distro, only requiring 256MB of RAM and a 586 CPU to run.

Haven’t tried it yet, but did download the iso. Gonna give it a test run asap.

    Times have changed, haven’t they? I remember when a “lightweight” linux distro was supposed to run in 16 MB of RAM on a 486. Not that I could get it to do it, since I was/am a noob on the command line, but still….

    Ah, progress–much easier to find 586 processor/256 MB machines than it used to be, eh?

    A few days ago when I accidentally deleted some of my very important files , I went for a linux recovery software named Stellar Phoenix Linux Recovery Software to recover all my lost files.

    Get the feeling the “comment” above is actually spam, but am gonna leave it for now.

    Not sure why anyone would pay $100 (or whatever) for a linux distro to use to recover files with when there are SO many out there (like RIP Linux or Puppy Linux or…) that do the same for free.
