GoboLinux 015 Installation and Review

Easy tutorial on how to install GoboLinux 015 on VMware Workstation or VMware Player step by step. This tutorial also helps for installing Gobo Linux on physical computer or laptop hardware.

What is GoboLinux?
GoboLinux is a Linux distribution created in 2002 which implements an innovative approach in terms of system administration. It organizes the programs in your system in a new, logical way. Instead of having parts of a program thrown at /usr/bin, other parts at /etc and yet more parts thrown at /usr/share/something/or/another, each program gets its own directory tree, keeping them all neatly separated and allowing you to see everything that’s installed in the system and which files belong to which programs in a simple and obvious way. Thus, a program “Foo” has all of its specific files and libraries in /Programs/Foo.

GoboLinux 015 New Features and Improvements
This is the first full-system image release in a number of years, after a long period in which we kept only updating compilation recipes. Packages were built using both ALFS (Automated Linux from Scratch) and our custom dynamically-generated sandboxed environment which insulates the source code and its dependencies during compilation. Major upgrades include the Enlightenment 18 desktop and kernel version 3.14.2, as well as new versions of the GoboLinux management tools.
