HAGARA, Ladislav. Source Mage GNU/Linux and Topic Maps Ontology. In: International Conference on Military Technologies 2011, ICMT’11. Brno: University of Defence, 2011, p. 1033-1040. ISBN 978-80-7231-787-5.
SUMMARY: Source Mage GNU/Linux is one of the original source-based GNU/Linux distributions (being based off of Sorcerer GNU/Linux). It allows users the maximum amount of freedom and choice possible. Users can build their own unique systems. Systems can be optimized for specific hardware and with specific options and can constain only necessary software. Users of source-based distributions as opposed to a binary-based can control what each package is compiled for. No needs to install unnecessary software.
Topic Maps is a standard for the representation and interchange of knowledge, with an emphasis on the findability of information. Ontology is a formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts. Ontopia is a complete set of open source tools for building, maintaining, and deploying Topic Maps based applications.
The Source Mage GNU/Linux Topic Maps Ontology described in the Linear Topic Map notation (LTM) is presented. Topic Maps Ontology generating by BASH (Bourne-Again SHell) scripts, communication using the Topic Maps Remote Access Protocol (TMRAP) protocol and data mining in the Omnigator environment by using the Tolog query language is analyzed. Plans to extend this Topic Maps Ontology and creation of Topic Maps application based on Ontopia to improve the development and make Source Mage GNU/Linux even more reliable and secure are outlined.
