LEAF Bering-uClibc is based on the well-known Bering distribution from Jacques Nilo and Erik Wolzak and provide the same features and functionality in the base. Anyway there are some differences with the original Bering release.
The biggest difference is that all binaries have been compiled with uClibc instead of glibc 2.0.7; but Bering-uClibc also supports ipv6, is based on a newer kernel, uses the latest sources, has some improvements and bugfixes and is significantly smaller.
LEAF Bering-uClibc is available for download as a single-floppy-based firewall or as an ISO-image. Additionally booting from HD, CF or an USB device is supported.
The floppy image supports dhcp, ppp and pppoe connections out of the box and fits for a SOHO network demanding a stable and secure router/Internet connection. With dropbear, a small sshd replacement, it is even ready for secure remote administration.
With the ISO image, or using an USB/CF/HD boot device, you can add about 100 packages to extend LEAF Bering-uClibc with capabilities like SNMP, IPV6 (and shorewall-like IPV6 firewall setup utility), VPN, Intrusion Detection, Traffic Accounting, Quagga Routing Suite, bandwith management and wireless connections, just to name a few.
What's New in This Release:
an extra stability patch to version 2.27
shorewall updated to version 3.0.7
