rpm livelinuxcd

rpm livelinuxcd is a set of ISO images and a toolkit. The first CD image is a basic live CD with X/KDE, GNOME, twm, VPN/DSL, kickstart, and other tools based on RPM packages. The second CD image includes a server with ssh, Apache, PHP, MySQL, Samba, Squid, and more, but without X11. The toolkit consists of shell scripts to create new CDs from RPM package lists or comps files.

    Release Notes: This release uses Fedora Core 3 (Heidelberg) and KDE 3.3.1, GNOME 2.8, Open Office, Firefox/Thunderbird, and more. It adds KDE language profiles for German, English, Francaise, and Italian, much more reliable detection of ddc-capable monitors, and better xorg.conf generation. Startup time has improved; it's now ~1-3 minutes, of which hardware detection takes the most time. KDE User Sessions are now auto-saved to/restored from USB storage (/dev/sda1).

      Release Notes: This release uses the Fedora Core 2 packages and a 2.6 kernel by default (2.4 is included as a fallback). The X Server was changed from XFree86 to Xorg. Most bugs were fixed, including a problem with auto-creation of the /etc/resolv.conf file. X auto-configuration is still a bit sketchy.
