1.2 BOSS GNU/Linux Licensing
BOSS GNU/Linux is a collection of many computer programs and documents created by BOSS Team. Each of these works might come under a different license. Our License Policy describe the process that we follow in determining which software we will ship by default on the BOSS Install, Live and Utility.
The BOSS team is committed to Free and Open Source Software. The world is a better place if you have the source code to all the software on your computer, and the right to use that source code in constructive ways.
We would invite you to read more about our Free Software Philosophy and help to shape this policy further.
Categories of software in BOSS GNU/Linux
We organize the thousands of software packages available for BOSS GNU/Linux into three key components: main, contrib, non­free. Software is published in one of those components based on whether or not it meets our Free Software Philosophy, and the level of support we can provide for it. This policy really addresses the software that you will find in main and non­free. Those components contain software that is fully supported by the BOSS team and must comply with this policy.
All software in BOSS main and non­free must be licensed in a way that is compatible with our license policy. There are many definitions of "free" and free software so we have included our own set of guidelines, listed below.
5
BOSS GNU/Linux "main" Component License Policy
All application software included in the BOSS GNU/Linux main component:
Must include source code. The main component has a strict and non­negotiable requirement that application software included in it must come with full source code.
Must allow modification and distribution of modified copies under the same license. Just having the source code does not convey the same freedom as having the right to change it. Without the ability to modify software, the BOSS community cannot support software, fix bugs, translate it or improve it.
1.2.1 The BOSS Free & Open Source Software Guidelines
1.Free Redistribution
The license of a BOSS GNU/Linux component may not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources. The license may not require a royalty or other fee for such sale.
2.Source Code
The program must include source code, and must allow distribution in source code as well as compiled form.
3.Derived Works
The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of the original software.
4.Integrity of The Author's Source Code
The license may restrict source­code from being distributed in modified form _only_ if the license allows the distribution of "patch files" with the source code for the purpose of modifying the program at build time. The license must explicitly permit distribution of software built from modified source code. The license may require derived works to carry a different name or version number from the original software. (This is a compromise. The BOSS group encourages all authors not to restrict any files, source or binary, from being modified.)
5.No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups
The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons.
6.No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor
The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from being used in a business, or from
6
being used for genetic research.
7.Distribution of License
The rights attached to the program must apply to all to whom the program is redistributed without the need for execution of an additional license by those parties.
8.License Must Not Be Specific to BOSS GNU/Linux
The rights attached to the program must not depend on the program's being part of a BOSS GNU/Linux system. If the program is extracted from BOSS GNU/Linux and used or distributed without BOSS GNU/Linux but otherwise within the terms of the program's license, all parties to whom the program is redistributed should have the same rights as those that are granted in conjunction with the BOSS system.
9.License Must Not Contaminate Other Software
The license must not place restrictions on other software that is distributed along with the licensed software. For example, the license must not insist that all other programs distributed on the same medium must be free software.
10.Example Licenses
The "GPL", "BSD", and "Artistic" licenses are examples of licenses that we consider "free".

2 Installation Steps
This manual helps you to install BOSS GNU/Linux on desktops and laptops. The installation system is flexible enough to use even if you have no previous knowledge of Linux or computer networks. If you select default options, BOSS GNU/Linux provides a complete desktop operating system, including productivity applications, Internet utilities, and desktop tools.
This document does not detail all of the features of the installation system. If you want the complete details of the features during installation please check our BOSS website at http://www.bosslinux.in
2.1 Before You Begin
2.1.1 System Requirements
BOSS GNU/Linux does not impose hardware requirements beyond the requirements of the Linux kernel and the GNU tool­sets. Therefore, any architecture or platform to which the Linux kernel, libc, gcc, etc. have been ported, can run BOSS GNU/Linux. To install BOSS GNU/Linux you need very minimum system configurations. The hardware requirement details are as follows:
➢ Hard Disk – 10.0 GB (unpartitioned space)
➢ RAM – 512 MB
➢ DVD­ROM drive
To install BOSS GNU/Linux from disc, you need the installation DVD, currently, BOSS GNU/Linux supports the i386, ppc, and x86_64 architectures. These architectures are described below:
i386
Intel x86­compatible processors, including Intel Pentium and Pentium­MMX, Pentium Pro, Pentium­II, Pentium­III, Celeron, Pentium 4, and Xeon; VIAC3/C3­m and Eden/Eden­N; and AMD Athlon, AthlonXP, Duron, AthlonMP, and Sempron
x86_64
64­bit AMD processors such as Athlon64, Turion64, Opteron; and Intel 64­bit processors such as EM64T
2.1.2 Overview of the Installation Process
First, just a note about re­installations. With BOSS GNU/Linux, a circumstance that will require a complete re­installation of your system is very rare; perhaps mechanical failure of the
8
hard disk would be the most common case. Many common operating systems may require a complete installation to be performed when critical failures take place or for upgrades to new OS versions. Even if a completely new installation isn't required, often the programs you use must be re­installed to operate properly in the new OS. Under BOSS GNU/Linux, it is much more likely that your OS can be repaired rather than replaced if things go wrong. Upgrades never require a wholesale installation; you can always upgrade in­place. And the programs are almost always compatible with successive OS releases. If a new program version requires newer supporting software, the BOSS packaging system ensures that all the necessary software is automatically identified and installed. The point is, much effort has been put into avoiding the need for re­installation, so think of it as your very last option. The installer is not designed to re­install over an existing system. Here's a road map for the steps you will take during the installation process.
1. Back up any existing data or documents on the hard disk where you plan to install.
2. Gather information about your computer and any needed documentation, before
starting the installation.
3. Create partition­table space for BOSS on your hard disk.
4. Set up the first boot drive to DVD drive (through CMOS setup) and restart your system.
5. Insert the BOSS GNU/Linux DVD into the drive
6. Boot the installation system.
7. Select installation language.
8. Activate the ethernet network connection, if available.
9. Create and mount the partitions on which BOSS GNU/Linux will be installed.
10.Watch the automatic install/setup of the base system.
11.Installs additional software (tasks and/or packages), at your discretion.
12.Installs a boot loader which can start up BOSS GNU/Linux on your existing system.
13. Load the newly installed system for the first time, and make some initial system
settings.
14.If you have problems during the installation, it helps to know which packages are
involved in which steps.
15. Introducing the leading software actors in this installation drama: The installer software, debian­installer, is the primary concern of this manual. It detects hardware and loads appropriate drivers, uses dhcp­client to set up the network connection, and runs debootstrap to install the base system packages. Many more actors play smaller parts in this process, but debian­installer has completed its task when you load the new system for the first time. Upon loading the new base system, base­config supervises adding users, setting a time zone (via tzsetup), and setting up the package installation
9
system (using apt­setup). It then launches tasksel which can be used to select large groups of related programs, and in turn can run aptitude which allows you to choose individual software packages.
2.1.3 Back Up Your Existing Data!
Before you start, make sure to back up every file that is now on your system. If this is the first time a non­native operating system has been installed on your computer, it's quite likely you will need to re­partition your disk to make room for BOSS GNU/Linux. Anytime you partition your disk, you should count on losing everything on the disk, no matter what program you use to do it. The programs used in installation are quite reliable and most have seen years of use; but they are also quite powerful and a false move can cost you.
Even after backing up be careful and think about your answers and actions. Two minutes of thinking can save hours of unnecessary work. If you are creating a multi­boot system, make sure that you have the distribution media of any other present operating systems on hand. Especially if you repartition your boot drive, you might find that you have to reinstall your operating system's boot loader, or in many cases the whole operating system itself and all files on the affected partitions.
2.2 Beginning the Installation
To begin installation of BOSS GNU/Linux, boot the computer from the boot media i.e from CD or DVD or any other storage bootable media like USB .
The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) on your computer must support the type of boot media you select. The BIOS controls access to some hardware devices during boot time. Any computer that meets the minimum recommended specification for BOSS GNU/Linux can boot from a CD or DVD drive with the first disc.
If you are not sure what capabilities your computer has, or how to configure the BIOS, consult the documentation provided by the manufacturer. Detailed information on hardware specifications and configuration is beyond the scope of this document.
Aborting the Installation
To abort the installation process at any time before the Installing Packages screen, either press Ctrl+Alt+Del or power off the computer with the power switch. BOSS GNU/Linux makes no changes to your computer until package installation begins. Booting from Disc
To boot your computer from disc:
1. Switch on the computer.
2. Insert the disc into the DVD drive.
3. A screen appears to ask for a booting option.,
10
1) Start BOSS Live
2) Install BOSS­Graphical
3) Install BOSS­Text Mode
4) Advance options

2.7 Disk Partitioning Setup
If you are new to Linux, you may want to use the automatic partitioning method. If you are a more experienced Linux user, use the manual partitioning method for more control over your system configuration, or select and modify the automatically defined partitions.
The screen below shows the way you would like to partition. These are the following ways in which you can partition the hard disk
a) Automatic partitioning
b) LVM partitioning
c) Manual partitioning. a) Automatic Partitioning
By selecting automatic partitioning, you will not have to use partitioning tools to assign mount points, create partitions or allocate space for your installation.
You will be provided with two options in automatic partition ­
➢ Format entire Hard Disk
➢ Use Existing Hard disk Space
Figure 6.1 Format Entire Hard Disk
17
Figure 6.2 Use the largest Free Space Available
Figure 6.3 Allot the space for different directories
18
b) LVM partitioning
LVM is a tool for logical volume management which includes allocating disks, resizing logical volumes. The Logical Volume Manager (LVM) enables flexible distribution of hard disk space over several file systems. As it is difficult to modify partitions on a running system, LVM was developed. It provides a virtual pool (Volume Group — VG for short) of memory space from which logical volumes (LV) can be generated if needed. The operating system accesses these instead of the physical partitions.
The screen shots are as follows:
Figure 6.4 LVM Partitioning

Figure 6.5 Select the disk to partition
Figure 6.6 LVM Partitioning
20
Figure 6.7 Finish Partitioning
Figure 6.8 LVM Partitioning
21
Figure 6.9 LVM Partitioning Use Existing Hard disk Space
This means that you need to have an empty unpartitioned free space which is not used for any other OS like Windows or Linux. Once you select this option it will ask you for the partition space details and then format it, later the installation proceeds.
c) Manual Partitioning
Creating a new partition
To partition manually , the following screen shots will help you setting up the partition.
1. A screen with name “Partition disks” will be displayed. In that click “Manual” and then
