Our busy developers will try to find time to release something to public.
Feel free to test and report us your notes, and, of course, your
comments and suggestions. Send your

This iso CD file contains a full featured linux kernel, with tons of drivers and an
automatic configuration. XFree86 is in charge of the rendering and will set a
1024x768 32bits screen at 75Hz if possible.
The boot is extremly slow, due to the autoconfiguration and the compressed
filesystem. What's more, we had to add some pauses in order to synchronise the
different stages of the demo.
You will see an autoconfiguration of the system, it will display your
configuration and the used drivers. After some seconds, the graphic display will
appear (a X cursor).
You will see an old version of our native window managing system,
click on the screen to add some windows. The CPU usage will show you
that on a decent computer with correct drivers, the CPU consumption is very low
(<5%) and the responsiviness very high.
Click on the bottom right to end this part.
This part is technically the more interesting, it shows a BeOS like
approach of the OS. The app_server starts and 2 recompiled BeOS apps are
launched (delays were added to show you that when your CD-ROM led will blink
during 1/4s an application will instantly be launched).
These 2 apps are:
BePuyo: a fun game, use your arrow keys to play.
BasicButton: a small test app which uses a button and some graphics
The app_server is running in the X11 mode, it means, that it uses a real X11
window manager. This app_server is able to render everything in our native
windowing system, but due to a lack of time, we preffered to use the X11
rendering mode. (this mode has a well known bug which makes some redraws
fail until you move a new window on top of it, this bug comes from the new
app_server architecture, it will be fixed soon). If you are curious, you can look at
the files contained on the CD, do a 'CTRL+ALT+F1'and go
to /KNOPPIX/mnt/test/be. You will see that the code was not compiled with
compiler optimizations and that the footprint is very small (the drivers are about
90% of the CD content).
- This package contains our kernel_server +
libroot.so that is an small server for Linux kernel in order to provide BeOS APIs
to it. 70 kb
