Gentoox Pro 5.0

The original Xbox adaptation of Gentoo
The Pro Edition is definitely aimed at professionals and developers. It provides them with all the tools they need to develop their own, customised environment without any preinstalled junk that they might not need.

Gentoox Linux is an adaptation of the popular source based Linux distribution called Gentoo. It is compiled from Stage 1 with full optimizations to run on a Microsoft Xbox games console. Software or hardware mods are required.

Gentoox runs along side games - you get 3 choices during installation: E, F and Native. Both E and F create a loopback filesystem meaning that none of your drives are formatted during installation (except for cache partitions). If you choose "Native", then your F: partition is formatted to ReiserFS (making it inaccessible to Xbox applications).

Gentoox can be loaded via a .xbe file, or from a Cromwell based BIOS (which can be flashed to your modchip during installation). When using E or F installations, you are totally risk free - if you dont like Gentoox, simply delete all the files it installs (about 7 in total) and its gone.

All Gentoox versions are 100% free and opensource.
