Stella is a desktop focused, Gnome2 based Centos 6 _remix_. Stella is not a fork. It is available as installable Live media and contains standard Centos software plus some multimedia and desktop additions. I made it a rule not to overwrite the Base repo, so besides the changed artwork and naming what you get under the hood is basically Centos! Stella comes bundled with various 3rd party repos: - EPEL - ElRepo - Adobe - nux-dextop (my own repo containing additional programs, mostly desktop oriented) It was my intention to make it so that the bundled repos do NOT conflict. You do not need to mess around with yum configuration, priorities etc; it should all just work(tm)! I made it another rule not to overwrite anything in EPEL or ElRepo if possible, but if you notice any problems or package conflicts please let me know ASAP so I can fix it. The necessary software to play a wide range of audio/video formats is already installed; Adobe Flash & Java (OpenJDK )support, too. Feel free to post in the forums if you have questions or comments. If you'd like a slightly outdated but stable, Gnome2 based OS to play with then feel free to give Stella a try. :-) Download ISO from London, UK - 1 Gbps, IPv4, IPv6 (thanks Coreix LTD!)
