libreCMC : The libre embedded GNU/Linux distro

A session at Fossetcon 2014

  • Robert Call

Friday 12th September, 2014

4:20pm to 5:00pm (EST)

libreCMC is a libre embedded GNU/Linux distro for embedded devices and general purpose computers. In the future, libreCMC plans to target routers, phones, tablets, servers and high performance computing applications. At present, libreCMC supports 7 different routers and 1 development board with the intent of providing a platform where users can host their own services knowing that all of the software is 100% free.

During the session we will talk about : the importance of free software in embedded devices (from a freedom and security standpoint), what libreCMC is, where the project is going and give a short live demo of some use cases for libreCMC. More info about libreCMC can be found at : http://librecmc.org
