Special Information

Recovery Is Possible (RIPLinux) is a small, specialized Linux distribution based on Slackware that includes system maintenance and recovery applications on a live CD or USB flash drive.

The RIP disc comes in two flavors: one with the X Window System and one without. The X-capable version does not require X to be started at boot-up; it can be started at any time after booting without the server.

The main purpose of X under RIP is to provide the capability to run GParted, a disk partition management program, and Mozilla Firefox, a web browser.

Xine is also included for watching movies on DVD.
