Availability and supported platforms
This special siduction edition is available for download as two Live CD ISO images that have been designed from the ground up to be deployed onto CD discs or written on USB thumb drives. They are supported on both 64-bit (amd64) and 32-bit (i386) instruction set architectures.
Powerful boot options
To our surprise, the same boot menu that is implemented into all of the other siduction editions is also available on this noX flavor, allowing users to start the live environment with default options or in safe graphics mode, boot an existing operating system from the first disk, or run a memory diagnostic test.
In addition, the user can add additional options to any of the aforementioned boot entries, switch to a specific timezone, change the language (default is English US), add extra kernel parameters, as well as to change the boot source.
It has no desktop environment, nor does it have any software suites
As mentioned, this is a special edition of the Debian-based siduction Linux distribution that features no X.Org display server, which means that users will be dropped to a shell prompt where they must login in order to use the live environment. While the default username is siducer, the default password is live.
Summing up, siduction noX is a the smallest siduction edition that was ever built, providing users with a minimal Linux environment for building custom operating systems based on this Debian-based distro, as well as to rescue broken OSes.
