Distributor ID: VoidLinux
Ymir is a GNU/Linux-libre distro that aims to be lightweight, efficient, bleeding edge and most importantly, libre*. We aim to be free-as-in-freedom from kernel to packages to every bit on your system.
You may be wondering - why make this project?
We can't directly contribute these fixes to Void Linux, so we chose to create this separate project. We also had to "blacklist" some packages that can never be "liberated", so having a separate project makes sense.
This project brings Linux-libre kernel on Void Linux ecosystem. Linux-libre is a fork of the original Linux kernel that removes closed source proprietary blobs that are inherently present on a typical Linux kernel. So now you can enjoy freedom even on kernel level.
The project also provides a cleaner, "liberated" version of semi-free packages to ensure user freedom. (NOTE: All the packages are not "liberated" yet. We're working on it.) We also have a "your-freedom" package ported from Parabola GNU//Linux-libre to stop nonfree packages from being installed on your system by accident.
The goal is to make your system clean and free from proprietary or nonfree programs.
There are currently 3 ways to install Ymir GNU/Linux-libre on your system. Choose the path to your freedom!
Easiest way to install. Also great for new installs. Just write the ISO on a flash drive or CD/DVD and install like you do other distros. And you'll be up and running in no time.
If you already run Void Linux, try this:
$ wget https://github.com/ymir-linux/void-packages/raw/master/liberation || curl -LO https://github.com/ymir-linux/void-packages/raw/master/liberation $ chmod +x liberation $ sudo ./liberation
Please do not try this on a production install. Backup important files before proceeding.
