Ututo is a Linux distribution consisting entirely of free software. The distribution is named for a variety of gecko found in northern Argentina.[2]

Ututo is compiled using Gentoo Linux ebuilds and emerge software. All documentation is in Spanish.

Ututo was the first fully free Linux-based system recognized by the GNU Project.[3][4] The founder of the GNU Project, Richard Stallman, formerly endorsed the distribution nearly exclusively,[5][6][7][8] and used it on his personal computer,[9] before he switched to gNewSense, and later Trisquel.

Ututo has different binaries optimized for different Intel and AMD processors .[10]

With no releases since 2012 the distribution is considered "dormant".[11]

History[edit]

Ututo was first released in 2000 by Diego Saravia in National University of Salta.[citation needed] Argentina. It was one of the first live CD distributions in the world[citation needed] and the first Linux distribution in Argentina.[citation needed] Ututo carried Simusol,[12] a system to simulate Solar Energy projects. Ututo was simple to install, because it did not need any configuration. It automatically detected the hardware in the machine, it only asked to "move your mouse". At that time no other distribution worked that way.[13][14][15][need quotation to verify]

In 2002, Ututo-R was created, which offered the possibility of operating like a software router. This version was created by Marcos Zapata and used in Buenos Aires public schools.[16][17]

In 2004, the Ututo-e project was born, swiftly becoming the most important derivative of Ututo.[18] This project was started by Daniel Olivera.

In 2006, Ututo was declared "of National Interest" by the Argentine Chamber of Deputies.[19][20]

The most recent versions of Ututo were called "Ututo XS". With the emergence of the XS series, many new features were added, including a faster system installer.[21][22][23] Ututo has been used in different hardware projects such as iFreeTablet.[24]

Ututo-Get[edit]

Pablo Manuel Rizzo has designed the package management system, Ututo-Get, modelled after Debian's APT;[25] however, as other Gentoo-based distros, Ututo is compatible with Portage.
