1 • gentoo installer (by Anonymous on 2004-03-01 19:32:21 GMT) |
will gentoo ever have an installer
2 • AUSTRUMI (by Bill H. on 2004-03-01 19:35:39 GMT)
You didn't mention that AUSTRUMI uses kernel 2.6.1. I just tried it and it is a nice little distro.
3 • categorising distributions (by Marc Turcotte at 2004-03-01 19:39:52 GMT)
Been waiting a long time for this and the categories
should be :
1- Type ( Live, Complete Install, Demo)
2- Base ( Knoppix, Fedora, Mandrake, Slackware, ect...)
3- Install Type ( Graphical Easy, Graphical Hard, Text easy, Text Hard, ect...
4- Environnement (KDE, Gnome, WM, ICEWM, ect...)
5- Software Bundle (Office, Home, Gaming, Minimal, ect...)
6- Language ( English, French, Spanish, ect...)
This Should be a special search area where you can
select the distro that fits you need and pick it or go to
their web site.
I don't know but thats how i see it...
Thank's for reading, Marc.

@Anonymous: Gentoo's always had an installer. How do you think I installed it on my computer? ;-)
If you mean a more automatic kind of installer, the last time I heard about that was that it's slated for the 2004.4 release.
5 • No subject (by Anonymous on 2004-03-01 22:21:49 GMT)
Gentoo has an installer... the only distros that I have ever heard of not having installers are some of the floppy/rescue distros, and most of the initial live-cd ones... But here is more info on Gentoo installation:

I'm guessing he's talking about a graphical installer.
rtfm and give the text installer a go!!
7 • Gentoo 2004.0 (by Anonymous on 2004-03-02 07:22:32 GMT)
Why doesn't it appear in the "Newest Distributions" box?
8 • No subject (by Anonymous on 2004-03-02 09:06:32 GMT)
Is there Gentoo 2004 live cd ISO? I can't seem to find one except stages.
9 • LRs linux (by David Trainor at 2004-03-02 10:57:07 GMT)
Such a great pity that LRs has fallen over again.
It's a fantastic source based distro that really
works. Perhaps a good case for a fork.
10 • linux mirror project (by nitroushhh on 2004-03-02 12:08:11 GMT)
Has anyone managed to get a distro downloaded ???
I've had bittorrent working on my machine before but can't get anything down using the torrents on the linux mirror project site. Shame, its seems like a really good idea.
11 • linux torrents (by linux torrents at 2004-03-02 12:29:16 GMT)
Heres a few torrents that i have scraped toghether, it's a fairly updated list and i try to keep it updated and add more as i find them.
12 • To Jalil about FreeBSD LiveCDs (by Sergio on 2004-03-02 15:15:56 GMT)
Thanks to 'linux torrents' I have just found out that there is a FreeBSD LiveCD.
It is called FreeSBIE.
You can either use the torrent link above or visit: http://www.freesbie.org/
13 • live cds (by stan on 2004-03-02 15:52:48 GMT)
thanks for posting the linux bit torrent URL for us
as for gentoo live CD there was something on their site yesterday saying they have had trouble and deleys putting the the iso on teh mirror sites - but I havent checked today!
I love SLAX as a live distro. Its so small it fits in RAm nice and easy so is faster to use than a normal HDD install! just press F1 when booting it to get to the load toRAM option and eject CD
I cant wait to try out that 30mb live distro called" deep water" wow
has anyone else tried "bitdefender" live CD? I like it cos its basicaly knoppix with antivirus and NTFS capture stuff. cool idea. if somone could make a small live distro with frequently updated antivirus and NTFS acess that would be a winner (since there are re-writeable 180mb mini cds it means easy carriable antivirus!)
14 • MandrakeLinux 10 (by Anonymous on 2004-03-05 14:02:15 GMT)
This seems to be also missing in the "New Distributions" box.
15 • The Linux Mirror Project (by Ross at 2004-03-06 06:00:14 GMT)
Yeah we had some problems with our tracker and a troublesome ISO file, when we found out, we tore the whole thing down to check everything over and it took us a few hours to get back online
We have sorted the problem out now, and we are furioursly adding distros and seeders back up, we have had some great support from the community in both kind words and aid in restoring the tracker / seeders.
We are coding some forums and finishing off the site later on today, also we will be adding the following distributions:
FreeBSD 4.9 / 5.1
Debian /woody /sarge NetInst
We will also be adding more distro's over the weekend, just been really hectic with everything going on the last 48 hours, we didn't think the project would take off so quickly. (If it wasn't for the overload of caffiene in my viens I would be asleep at my keyboard now ;)
Anyway, if anyone has any comments, queries, suggestions etc, please give Matt or myself an email:
Or better yet, pop into our IRC channel:
Thanks again to everyone who has given us so much support already, we will do our best to improve the service in the coming days, weeks and months.
16 • knoppix 3.3 (by Juan T. on 2004-03-06 14:01:52 GMT)
I have installed Knoppix 3.3 in my hard disk. It is great!:
In about 10 minutes you get a complete operating system running with the latests releases, conecting internet inmediatelly, having total control of the other partitions in the disk, and without the bother to choose anything; In addition, if you are 'out', you may bring with you, and reproduce in any computer, your own desktop and applications, just taking with you the live CD.
17 • AUSTRUMI (by Mark Smith at 2004-03-07 00:11:04 GMT)
Is AUSTRUMI the only live CD that is currently using the 2.6 kernel? Its very fast on my old 300mhz PC If it was only in english :) !
18 • Jollix (by Mel at 2004-04-02 19:35:57 GMT)
Jollix is a knoppix /Gentoo live CD. It runs from the CD, and manuals (english and german) for installing it to disk are available. Both Jollix and Knoppix 3.3 work well on an Acer Travelmate 800LCI (Laptop).
