SolusOS is a modern operating system based on the hugely popular Linux distribution, Debian. It works out of the box with great support for all your modern day computing needs including word processing, audio/video playback and editing, file sharing, and more.

Modern Lightweight Operating System

Enjoy all of the comforts of the modern desktop world on an incredibly light system, suitable for old and new computers alike. Robustness does not have to come at a cost of power.

Multimedia Powerhouse

Once you’ve installed SolusOS you’re good to go. Browse the internet, play your latest 3D games or sit back and watch a DVD. Manage your MP3 collection all from one system. The world is yours. Included codecs help ensure you don’t have to worry about your media not being readily playable.


Not only is SolusOS an incredibly robust and modern operating system, it can directly trace its lineage to the Debian project, following the stable branch of the distribution. Never again will you have to worry about “dependency hell” or buggy software destroying your installation. Through this leverage, we are able to provide you a pleasant user experience and keep everything running smoothly.

Accessible Community

Our community is readily available through our Forums or IRC. Speak directly with the developers of the project, and provide your input to them. We truly believe in the power of the community to keep us moving day to day.

About this release

Certain issues were encountered with the 3.3.6 kernel for some hardware, i.e. users of nForce hardware, the onboard nvidia graphics (MCP61 booting to black screen), forcedeth (nforce) users, certain 10MBit LAN chips, and various bluetooth and broadcom chips.

This legacy spin intends to address those issues for a select set of users by providing an older kernel that hasn’t got these regressions.

PAE vs Non-PAE

32-bit Operating Systems can only see and use up to roughly 3.2GB of RAM. If you have more, but don’t want to use 64-bit, please ensure your CPU supports PAE. If it does, use the PAE SolusOS ISO to utilise all of your RAM. If you have no need then just use the non-pae kernel. Even if your CPU supports it, if you haven’t got enough memory to warrant using PAE don’t use it. It carries a slight overhead and will use a bit more memory than the non-pae build. By this nature the 64-bit system is heavier still (trade-off for having more memory is you use slightly more to address all of it)

Plymouth Issues

Some users may experience issues with an incorrect resolution for Plymouth. This was done to ensure best proprietary driver incompatibility (as the console drivers were being affected) If you have issues with this please check the forums over the coming days as a guide will be prepared

Last but not least
Thank you to everyone involved in SolusOS. Without your help none of this would be possible. We
hope you enjoy this release as much as we have enjoyed creating it

System Requirements

64-bit Edition: 64-bit capable processor
32-bit Edition: x86 Processor
3GB free disk space
Display capable of 1024×768 resolution
A DVD-R/RW or USB thumb drive
