LinuxStroom : Linux for Electrical Engineering

Last year I had a project from my lecturer to create Linux which will be deployed in Electrical Engineering of President University. At the time I really need to observe the behavior of Electrical Engineering students and lecturers while using operating system. Most of them use Windows :(. So our team decided to make a convenient interface which will be easily used by students and lecturer. The first step is by creating Live CD for them so that they can try and can fully migrate to Linux which is designed for Electrical (Electronics) field. Finally after several weeks gathering packages on the net, the first pre release version was released. A sad news is that since last year I could not put it in Indonesian distro mirror site or other place for mirroring.

LinuxStroom is remastered version of Knoppix 5.1 (CD version) which contains Windows like interface and electrical engineering software.

Please let me know if you want to help me providing file hosting server for LinuxStroom.

Now you may downloaded it from

Thanks to Rudolf Meijering for providing web hosting for my ISO files.

    Saya sedang menghadapi kendala untuk meng-hostingkan LinuxStroom ini karena ukurannya yang cukup besar (~700mb). Mungkin Anda bisa kirim cd-blank + amplop + perangko balasan.

    Sorry dudes,

    I actually will be very happy if I could share it among you all. However, in Indonesia (my country) web hosting is kinda expensive for student like me.

    Is there any body out there could help me?

  6. Hi,

    I have 1GB of hosting space available. If the distribution is smaller than that I’ll be happy to host it for you.

    You’ll just have to find a way to transfer it. Maybe you can upload it with scp?
