Welcome to Wolvix at Oithona.com - this is an archive of the Wolvix repository.


This web site began life as a backup site for the Wolvix web site in case that site went down for any reason - which it occasionally did. It is retained for mainly historical interest.


Wolvix is a Live and installable implementation of Slackware GNU/Linux. Development of the distribution was discontined after the second beta release of Wolvix-2.0.0 in March 2010. This release was based on Slackware 12.2. Although discontinued, I still find it to be one of the best live distros available, and continue to use it at home and at work. I also continue to use it as an installed distro on my main PC at home. It is lightweight, fast and comprehensive. Its longevity and continued usefulness is a tribute to Wolven, its developer.


Wolvix-1.1.0 consisted of two versions: the lightweight Wolvix-Cub and the full version - Wolvix Hunter. Wolvix-2.0.0 also consisted of the lightweight 'cub' version and a full version
