LinuxBBQ CLIt is a special edition of the LinuxBBQ operating system based on the award winning Debian GNU/Linux distribution and specifically designed for people who like to do everything in the command-line. CLIt stands for Clit lives in ttys.
Available for download as 64-bit and 32-bit Live CDsThis LinuxBBQ edition can be downloaded directly from its official homepage or through Softpedia as two Live CD ISO images, one for the 32-bit (i386) architecture and another one for the 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platform.
Boot optionsThe user can start the live environment in quiet mode, with support for Intel graphics cards, with VGA and nomode options, by copying the contents of the ISOs to RAM or in safe graphics mode using the failsafe option. In addition, you can boot from the local drive or perform a memory test.
noX window manager powered by tmuxThis is a minimalistic operating system and it has been designed from the ground up to not include the X Window System (X11). It drops users to a shell prompt from where they can use all the preinstalled CLI (Command-Line Interface) tools. Please keep in mind that the default username/password combination for the Live CDs is bbq/bbq.
Includes a plethora of CLI toolsAs mentioned, this is an exclusive command-line version of the Debian-based LinuxBBQ operating system, which means that it includes a only CLI applications aimed at a wide range of computing areas. Among some of the most important ones, we can mention TestDisk, cfdisk, smxi, inxi, parted, gdisc, check ACPI and repair GRUB.
Bottom lineAll in all, the CLIt edition of LinuxBBQ proves to be a small, very fast, lightweight and portable distribution of Linux designed only for hardcore Linux users who love the TTY interface of a Linux-based operating system.
