Version History[edit]

Retrieved on May 22, 2007[1]

aLinux's original name was Peanut Linux. Peanut began as a mini-OS, along the lines of Xubuntu or DSL.

  • 9.1: Peanut was command-line, using Midnight Commander as its default file manager and incorporated the Red Hat Package system (*.rpm)
  • 9.4: Peanut had a GUI (X Window System and Enlightenment), and came bundled with Mozilla Communicator, GAIM, and other useful programs (still keeping its total size at 240MB)
  • 9.5: Came bundled with several KDE applications, including KOffice, KDEGames, Kaffeine, etc.

Peanut went through several revisions between 9.6 and 12.0, and was not officially released to the public during this period. During version 12.1 development, a Peanut package repository (for use with the new Synaptic clone) was released.

  • 12.2: Name change from Peanut Linux to aLinux.
