Linux Kodachi

Last Update: 2018-12-31 22:31 UTC


Linux Kodachi is a Debian-based distribution which can be run from a DVD or USB thumb drive. The distribution filters all network traffic through a VPN and the Tor network, obscuring the user's network location. The distribution attempts to clean up after itself, removing traces of its use from the computer.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 82 (141), 6 months: 46 (242), 3 months: 33 (329), 4 weeks: 55 (236), 1 week: 68 (167)

Average visitor rating: 8.07/10 from 29 review(s).

Would have been nice for this distro to work out well for me but it did not. Even in the install I had issues:

Created an account during the install but it wasn't there after installation-just the "Kodachi" user account...

Checked "do not log in automatically during install but it still logged me in automatically".

Conky took 2-3 minutes to completely show up on the screen- granted I'm on an old Dell Quad-core Xeon, 32GB RAM, on a Crucial 240SSD but still should have been quicker.

I have a paid account with NordVPN so I edited the config file for Nord and saved it. When I clicked Start NordVPN Kodachi kept telling me it needs to be set-up first- then I figured out you can't have a space in the username or password line in the config file.

When I did finally get connected to the NordVPN service, Conky showed that I was connected to to a UK server but the IP address for that server was my WAN IP... Tor IP was the same! My WAN IP.

Maybe my paranoia but this distro has made me very wary of it and I'm wiping that drive immediately. Good luck to you people using it!

Great Distro, however, I find the conky quiet irritating as it blocks when I invoke the xfce terminal & it needs to be condensed and moved up to the far side of the screen out of the way visible. Also, when I select anything from cairo dock, the items being selected from the cairo dock are block the certain sections. Moreover, the HOME directory are also being block by the conky. This bugs needs to be fixed ASAP.

The 5.6 version was rush out to the production environment without proper testing as it shows certain bugs in wireless firmware. I've tried previous version 4.0 and my wireless driver was recognised properly, however, when I've tried version 5.6 my wireless firmware b43#device was not recognized at all.
