Today I have released Dotsch/UX 1.2.

Dotsch/UX is a Linux distribution for BOINC which easily installs and boot from a USB stick, hard disk and from diskless clients and also has some interfaces to setup the diskless server and the clients automatically.

For more informations have a look at http://www.dotsch.de/Dotsch_UX

New features in 1.2 :
• Build in NVIDIA CUDA support, a additional tool to enable and check the NVIDIA CUDA support.
• Persistent Live CD mode for testing the distribution as Live CD and store the data on a USB stick/disk
• Automated and semiautomatic backup of the BOINC client data and some other OS data
• Included Ganglia for performance monitoring of the Dotsch/UX Grids
• Pre Installed BOINC client 6.10.17
• Removed a lot of unneeded packages in the x86 and x64 distribution
• A lot of bug fixes and enhancements

Special thanks to all the peoples which supported and helped to make the new distribution possible !

I tried this distro, but was unable to make it do anything.

It boots, fine, but whenever I try to log n and use it, I get nowhere! There's a user login screen, but no matter what I type, it goes nowhere. Have I missed something blindingly bloody obvious?

Hi There.
Know somebody reads these comments, so here's my 2cents on DotschUX ALL versions. IT DON'T WORK when it comes to the internet!! I've burned and tossed at least 2dozen CDs/DVDs in the trash, and had one helluva time with the burns that actually installed. 3/4's of the installs needed a dozen reboots before something happened (like it loaded right thru the blue Dotsch desktop) and then paid hell to get it to connect. I recently acquired an 8core cruncher and tried it with v1.2x64. ANOTHER 100 hrs wasted, and guess what! No Internet. I even put in an old ethernet card to bypass the onboard card thinking cause it was old the drivers MIGHT be found easier. HaHaHa.
I'm guessing that if i got a USpenny for every HOUR i've spent reading for answers, I'd have quite the cash stash goin' for me!!
Anyway, now that i've mucked up at least a week of my time on this version, I'm going to a friends house to retreive a copy of W7. Screw Linux/Dotsch and all 900 variations of the theme.
Thanks for all the reading material posted on your site... at times it WAS very helpful for a total linux newbee. Good luck to anyone who desires a 'plug'n'play' BOINC application.
TC...
