The BANDIT toolkit

The Build AND Install Toolkit, BANDIT, or the bandit, is a software toolkit used in the phyglos distribution to build and install new functionality to a phy system. The bandit can also create a new phy system and install the phyglos distribution on it.

The phyglos catalog

The phyglos catalog is the reference catalog to install a new phyglos machine. The phyglos catalog is available from the repository to be used by the bandit. The phyglos catalog should provide the minimun number of bundles required to raise a phyglos machine.

The aliens catalog

The aliens catalog is a BANDIT catalog provided for convinience that can be used with the BANDIT toolkit to install third party binary products in a system.


The linux-configs collection is a set of .config kernel configuration files for the Linux kernel. The package is designed to work with the BANDIT toolkit and the phyglos catalog, but these .config files can be used as independent files when building any new Linux kernel.
