those wishing to use a Freed-ora Freedom Kernel but may be put off by
the difficulty of "Librerating Fedora20 & installing Libre-Kernel.
The easy way is to install GdNewhat:
GdNewHat Project aim to develop and distribute fully free system
distribution based on free software community's accomplishments. We are
always making an attempt to eliminate non-free components or replace
them such as non-free firmware, driver, software and document with free
one from our software repository and system distribution when possible.
GdNewHat system distribution mainly use binary-blob (non-free firmware,
driver) free GNU Linux-libre kernel that is maintained by FSF Latin
America instead of official linux kernel. So, some hardware may not
enough function or may be unsupported in a lot of cases. However, you
can make completely clean computer system with only free software
without restrictive licenses if you use it.
Note: "Hatrack" is Fedora Remix based on upstream's official release
binaries and sources. There are i386 for 32-bit PC and x86_64 for 64-bit
PC version, those are ready to use. Intel-compatible PC, least 1GB RAM
and 10GB disk space are recommended for installation. If your PC have
more than 3GB RAM, you will install PAE kernel by yum command in cases
where you install i386 version. Default desktop environment is MATE.
Non-critical bug may happen in rare cases after first login. Please read
a bug report if necessary.
How to get sources:
You can get upstream's sources if you carry out "yumdownloader --source
PACKAGENAME" on command line. You will find kernel sources at
http://www.fsfla.org. In addition, there are additional sources at our
repositories, those are listed below.
