Morphix is a modular Linux distribution, based on Knoppix (which is in turn based on Debian). Morphix uses the LiveCD features of Knoppix, but it is more modular. Different modules can be combined on a CD for varying purposes, making Morphix a sort of LiveCD construction kit. For example, a Morphix CD can contain a normal base system, but use GNOME as the desktop instead of KDE. Other modules can be constructed for other specific purposes, such as a firewall, a rescue disk, a basic office suite, etc.

Four sets of applications for Morphix are officially supported. These versions are mostly classified by their GUI, but each has its own set of applications. Morphix LightGUI comes with XFce4 and tries to stay small enough to fit on a mini-cd. Morphix Game uses XFce4 but has a very large number of games on it instead of applications. Morphix KDE comes with, as the name implies, KDE, and comes with many KDE-only applications. Morphix GNOME, formerly Morphix HeavyGUI, comes with applications for advanced users. All versions of Morphix have a hard disc installer, but it is only in early stages of development. There are scripts to automate the creation of Morphix discs.

As of November 23, 2003, the current revision of Morphix is 0.4-1.

You can use F2 to get help during LiveCD initialization and use some commands :


GNOME Morphix includes :


On Linux, copy the image to your floppy drive using the dd command. (example dd if="image name" of=/dev/"floppy device name")

Then, put this disk in the drive, and the CD ( or the second hard disk) in the drive and select cdrom from the boot devices area.
