About us

Pisi GNU/Linux; Pisi is an end-user-oriented GNU/Linux distribution that is based on the latest version of Pardus, developed by the free software community, trying to provide convenience to computer users in terms of installation, configuration and use, and to meet their basic desktop needs.


  • It is an end user oriented GNU / Linux distribution.
  • It aims to enable its users to experience Linux using a free and graphical interface as possible.
  • It aims to develop the designs it took over and contribute to the free software world by ensuring the development of new designs.
  • It does not consider releasing a server or an Enterprise version.
  • Currently it only supports x86-64 architecture.
  • It uses a major version naming 1, 2, 3 and an intermediate version naming 1.1, 1.2, 1.3.
  • It offers up-to-date and stable applications.


Many Pardus designs, which were created within the scope of the Pardus draft carried out by TUBITAK, but were discontinued by TUBITAK after Pardus switched to Debian base in the 2013 version, continue to be developed under Pisi Linux.


COMAR (stands for: COnfiguration MAnageR) is a software that enables the settings such as hardware, power-on, network, user, time, display to be made automatically as much as possible, and allows users to change these settings in a simple and understandable way under an authorization control. .


Pisi (stands for Packages Installed Successfully as Intended) is a package management system written in Python language. It performs package creation, install, uninstall, upgrade and similar functions based on dependencies. The creation process generates binary packages from source packages that are defined in XML and supplied with a Python script and can install and remove them by looking at their dependencies. It includes a user-friendly graphical interface and a comprehensive command line interface.


Package Manager is an application that can be used to easily install Pisi packages from the graphical interface. Thanks to the Package Manager application, packages can be easily installed, updated or uninstalled with a single click. Package Manager can also provide detailed information such as description, size, and version about each package.



YALI (stands for Yet Another Linux Installer) is the installation software used by Pisi Linux. It quickly and smoothly places users' operating systems from the installation environment to the destination. For now, Calamares is used instead of YALI in Pisi Linux.



Captain is a setting wizard that greets the user on the desktop at the first boot after Pisi Linux installation and can then be used to customize the desktop. Kaptan provides general information about Pisi Linux, provides certain configuration options such as network connections for the user to use the desktop more comfortably, and also helps the user to personalize the desktop.



Pisi is the boot process system of Linux. It aims to open the system faster, to become a more flexible and maintenance-friendly distribution. The manager performs tasks such as connecting file systems, recognizing hardware and installing drivers, making certain network settings, starting system services, from the moment the operating system kernel starts working, to stopping services when the computer is shut down, and shutting down file systems safely. .
