Frenzy is the multi-fonction pocket knife of the system administrator. It is presented in the form of a LiveCD based on FreeBSD. It contains primarily software intended for the tests of the hardware and filesystems, for the security checks and the adjustments and analyzes of the functions network. The size of the Image disc is of 200 Mo, it is compatible with mini-CD of 8 cm.
- processor Pentium or better.
- 32 Mo of Random access memory.
- reader of CD-ROM bootable allowing to read of CDs or mini-CD.
- the Hard drive is not necessary.
The current version is based on FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE. The use of the Data compression (geom_ugz) makes it possible to make hold approximately 600 Mo of data on CD of 200 Mo. The rate loading is some thus improved.
With starting, Frenzy creates the discs necessary in Random access memory, detects automatically the partitions of hard drives present and assembles them. The formats UFS, Allocation Counts|FAT 16 and 32 bits, NTFS and Ext2 are supported. Frenzy also goes up, if it detects one of them, the partitions swap FreeBSD. You can create yourself if necessary a partition of swap on one of the assembled discs. The detection of the mouse is automatic (PS/2, serial, USB).
Frenzy offers more than 400 applications:
