Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable cd, containing a whole
operating system that works straight from boot, without the need to
install or change anything on the hard disk.

If you like and want to have it on harddisk you can simply copy the
/dyne directory on your computer: the simpliest installation ever! Your
older system is untouched and comes back booting without CD.

Dyne:bolic is user-friendly: recognizes your hardware devices (sound,
video, firewire, modem, network and USB) and offers a vast range of
software for multimedia production: audio and video manipulation, sound
composition and synthesis, 3D modeling, photography, peer2peer
filesharing, web browsing, veejaying, desktop publishing, word
processing, cd burning, email, encryption, anonymity tools and more.

All software is free and there is no market operation behind
dyne:bolic, just a communal effort to widen access to modern technology
and let people be Free to Create.

Dyne:bolic is being developed since 6 years by independent and well
skilled artisans optimizing it to run on computers commonly found in
Africa America Asia Europe and Oceania. It includes code from hundreds
of programmers all around the world, with a lively community of
artists, teachers and developers who use, distribute and adapt this
platform according to their needs and desires.

This operating system is a grassroot effort to share independent
knowledge, it keeps away from commercial speculations and capitalist
corporations, because CREATIONS WANT TO BE FREE.

- - just borrowing a CD/RW and an harddisk you can repack a new liveCD

=== upgrading from version 2

To upgrade just replace the dyne/ directory with the new one, or run

- create a new encrypted nest overwriting the old one
- import manually your data into the new one

=== upgrading from version 1

Upgrade from version 1, or not? here is an overview of reasons:

- better usability and stability, support for more devices
- possibility to run from usb and solid state devices
- ability to run in thin-client setups
- cryptographic protection for your privacy

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: FOR ACTIVISM IN CRISIS AREAS

____ __ _ _ http://www.linux.com/articles/61665

We imagine improvised expressive devices like a CD that turns your PC
into an on line streaming studio. Imagine a mob that creates a traffic
jam. Think of the religious policeman in London, the konfused kollege
kid and the jealous dentist in Baghdad and the jailed blogger blogging
on in Cairo. Building autonomous networks in extreme conditions.

Streamtime uses old and new media for the production of content and
networks in the fields of media, arts, culture and activism in crisis
areas, like Iraq. Streamtime offers a diffuse environment for
developing do-it-yourself media. We focus on a cultural sense of
finding your own way in the quagmire that is Iraq, and its
representation in the global media. We should not try to change
politics in order to foster cultural change; we should support cultural
manifestation in order to force political change.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: AUTOMATIC CRYPTO AUTONOMISM :::

A public presentation of our privacy protection mechanism was held at
the Ars Electronica Symposium 2007 - here are the slides:

__ _ _ http://bricolabs.net/directions/goodbye_privacy

People have the right to protect their privacy as much as their freedom
to express.

It is important to keep in mind that noone else than *you* can ensure
the privacy of your personal data. Server hosted services and web
integrated technologies gather all data into huge information pools
that are made available to established economical and cultural regimes.

Since version 2.4 dyne:bolic supports strong encryption of your /home
private data with Linux dm-crypt i586 optimized Rijndael hashed SHA256,
to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool to protect your
bookmarks, addressbook, documents and emails by carrying them back with
you, protected with a fairly strong cryptographic algorithm.

A passkey to read your data is stored inside a file, which is also
protected by a password. It is possible to keep everything with you on
a small usb stick, still being sure that the data won't be easily
recovered in case you loose it. You can also give the passkey
protecting your data to a friend, to make the data unaccessible until
you meet again, which can be useful in case of tricky transports.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: THIS IS RASTA SOFTWARE

Jah Rastafari Livity bless our Freedom! This is free software, share it
for the good of yourself and your people, respect others and let them
express, be free and let others be free. Live long and prosper in

But, no Peace without Justice. This software is about Resistence inna
Babylon world which tries to control more and more the way we
communicate and share information and knowledge. This software is for
all those who cannot afford to have the latest expensive hardware to
speak out their words of consciousness and good will. This software has
a full range of applications for production and not only consumption of
information, it's a full multimedia studio, you don't need to buy
anything to express yourself. Freedom and sharing of knowledge are
solid principles for evolution and that's where this software comes

Inna babylon, money is the main requirement to make a voice possible to
be heard by others. Capitalist and fundamentalist governments all
around the world rule with huge TV monopolies spreading their
propaganda, silencing all criticism.

This is a struggle for Redemption from existing operating systems which
always require new expensive hardware for doing the same as ever: give
us free players but make us pay for producing our own voices. And the
one who protects you rips you off, as the Arabs say.

Dyne:bolic is a tool to produce and publish yourself, freely. There is
nothing to consume here, there is all you need to create.


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: BIG UP \o/

First of all salutes and great respect to the many developers who have
written software included in dyne:bolic: a long list of names that is
impossible to include here, you'll find information about them inside
the CD and in the documentation of each software.

Furthermore there are many contributors that patiently document bugs
and give suggestions, via email or in person, most of them are not
mentioned here, as it would be a big effort by itself to keep up to
date such a documentation... Thanks to all of you.

Special thanks for this release go to Fruity, Tati, Jean Habib,
