From Progeny Componentized Linux

As revisions and new releases of Componentized Linux elements are available, we'll post download links, release notes and installation instructions.

DCC 3.0

DCC 3.0 was a LSB 3.0 compliant, Debian 3.1 ("sarge")-based common core designed to serve as the basis for custom Debian distributions. The purpose of the DCC distribution was met by creating a common, standards-based core for Debian-based Linux distributions. The fruit of this work can be found in the the availability of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) ( 3.1, which was released in April 2006 by the Free Standards Group. To this end, the DCC core and reference implementation are depreciated.

Once can still obtain the DCC core and reference implementation from the DCC Alliance download page (

Componentized Linux Platform Development Kit (PDK)

Warning: This is pre-release software.

The PDK is sufficiently functional now that we're releasing periodic snapshots of it via the following APT repository as a convenience to our developer community:

   deb debian_version main

where "debian_version" is "sarge" or "etch". To install PDK on any Debian or Debian-compatible system, add the line above to /etc/apt/sources.list and run apt-get install pdk.

We will update the snapshot as we hit additional development milestones. To get the latest and greatest, you may check out the current PDK trunk from Progeny's Subversion repository:

   $ svn co svn:// pdk

For instructions on how to install and use the PDK, please see Getting started with Componentized Linux and the Platform Development Kit (PDK).

With DCC 3.0 and the LSB 3.1, tools such as the Progeny Debian Developer Edition have been superseded by the LSB Developer Network (
