Hi everybody,

I have started this project out of curiosity about 9 months ago and i have reached a point where I would like some feedback from the community to help me improve the CD.

I have enclosed a file with a brief description of the liveCD and the software included.

I know, the name is kinda lame and frankly ... sucks, but i have struggled to find a better name, but the essential thing is that i have tried to customise Mandrake 10.0 (although i should say Mandriva now) to fit my needs.

What the sheet doesn't tell you is that I used a 2.4 kernel (see my thread "Comparison CDROM/HDD" in this forum).

If anyone is interested in testing it, I could find a way to make the isos available. I have two different ones: 0.1 (with XFCE 4) and 0.2.5 (with KDE 3.2).

Cheers,

Fred.

Have you thought of including jmol in your packages? I'd also suggest molden but I'm not sure that it's free to distribute.

Yes, i have thought of that since i am including java (for Jabref), but i have decided against it. I will have another look.

I will write a more complete article as soon as possible.

Anymore comments, fire away! :D/>

i would like to try this.... how would i get an iso from you???

also one suggestion, if you havent already done it...
knoppix includes a great ndiswrapper utility in its live cd wich allows you to set up your wireless card if you need it.... i think that that would be a great addition to any live distro....

I'll zip the iso and put it on kazaa which should allow you to get it.

I will name the file clivecd.zip.

Tell me if it works.

And thanks for your interest in the project. :D/>

If it doesn't, i could ship a cd to you.

I do not have a lot of web space, so the only way that I would see would be that I partition the iso with something like winzip in chunks of about 100MB and you recompose the iso when you have all the parts.

That would be the easiest way.

I will post the address shortly.

Just tell me when you are done with downloading one part of the iso and I will put the next part online.

How's that?

Just go to this website and follow instructions.

Email me when you are done downloading the files (email link on web page).

Cheers :D/>

Cool! I am happy that you could get it.

Please give me some feedback so that I can improve it.

I take that it works for you?

Cool!

I would guess that since it is based on the 2.4 kernel and i did not include ndiswrapper since i had no need for it in the past.

Give me a list of things you think need improvement and i will take that into account in the next version.

Right now, I was thinking to go for that 2.6 kernel (same as PCLinuxOS) and change the real player installer and also get the latest versions of each software,

I also have to take care o the website.

In the meantime, feel free to redistribute it! :banana:/>

Cheers.

Fred.

Name suggestions:
