What is OCNix?
OCNix (Overclock.net Linux) is Overclock.net's custom Arch based Live Linux distribution geared toward overclockers. The distribution will include tools for stress testing, monitoring, benchmarking, and whatever other little tools are found to be beneficial to overclockers.
The project made it to alpha phase about a half a year ago, but that included some things (on the back end) that were not ideal. Currently it will be rolled back to an earlier release and will be restarted from there.
Project Goals (as of January 30, 2011):
We would like OCNix to be able to provide for the following:
- Stress Testing
- System Monitoring
- Basic Disk Tools
- Automated F@H Installer
- Proprietary drivers ready to run
How can YOU help?
OCNix needs dedicated individuals who can devote at least a few hours a week to the project. I work full time as a Java developer and know that it is hard to sit down after a long day at work and do more work, but if you have the extra drive to help out, we need you! (Plus it's a lot of fun and you'll learn a lot )
If you would like to help with development, we are looking for people with any of the following:
General Linux knowledge
Or anyone who really is interested to help out and wants to learn
If you don't have the time to help out, at least post in the forum and give us your thoughts and suggestions. Although, I ask to make sure that any suggestions you have follow the mission of OCNix (i.e. this is not a gamer's distro).
We will also need people to help test the distribution and when we reach that point.
