Installation of alternative boot manager - grub

Lilo is the default boot manager and it was chosen to simplify the installation process. If you would like to have one of the most advanced boot managers then you will want to install grub. Here's how... Type emerge grub. Execute grub by typing grub.

Navyn OS is a gnu/linux distribution based on Gentoo. Gentoo isn't a typical distribution like Debian or Slackware, it doesn't even have an installer, it is similar to making your own distribution. The main part of Gentoo is portage, a set of scripts for installing and removing programs. You can install programs easily by typing the command emerge program_name or use user friendly program with GUI porthole. In portage there are thousands of programs. There are also dependencies between programs so the command emerge will install programs AND all needed dependencies. The command emerge downloads the program from the network, unpacks, compiles and installs it. Installing programs is very easy using emerge.

Programs installation

Because Navyn OS uses the Gentoo portage, you now have access to thousands of programs.You need to have a working internet connection because programs are downloaded from the network. In the directory /usr/portage there is a list of available programs, you can install them by typing emerge program_name.

What is it for


Included in Navyn Os there are many programs connected with network security. One of the most important programs is nmap, a great port scanner with many advanced options. On the cd there is also a sniffer program called dsniff which is ideal for capturing passwords. Another program is nessus, which can be used for searching vulnerabilities on remote systems. You can easilly compile exploits because there are all library headers on the cd. Of course there is also ssh, netcat and a great program for searching samba shares : nbtscan. Drivers for WIFI cards are compiled into the kernel so this distro is ideal for wardriving, a lot of programs for this:
  • kismet
  • airsnort
  • amap
  • vmap
  • hping
  • thcrut
There is also linux-wlan-ng for drivers not included in kernel and ndiswrapper for using windows wifi drivers. Small program for cracking bios password and program for clearing windows NT password and xprobe which is OS fingerprinting tool.

Do you want support Navyn OS?

Yes you can join to Navyn OS project, the most important is to write new scripts to make Navyn OS more powerfull and more user friendly. You can also write tutorial about Navyn OS or tell what to include in next release, what change in kernel or just inform others about this distro, thanks for any help.
