Stella is desktop focused, based on CentOS _remix_. Stella is not a fork.
It is available as installable Live media and contains standard Centos software plus some multimedia and desktop additions.
The Base repos are not overridden. Besides the changed artwork and naming what you get under the hood is basically Centos!
Stella comes bundled with various 3rd party repos:
- nux-dextop (repo containing additional programs, mostly desktop oriented) More Info »
The intention is to make it so that the bundled repos do NOT conflict.
You do not need to mess around with yum configuration, priorities etc; it should all just work(tm)!
Another rule followed is to not to overwrite anything in EPEL or ElRepo if possible, but if you notice any problems or package conflicts please contact on the forums (https://forums.nux.ro/ ) so it can be fixed.
The necessary software to play a wide range of audio/video formats is already installed; Adobe Flash & Java (OpenJDK )support, too.
Feel free to post in the forums if you have questions or comments.
