      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Comparison CDROM/HDD for LiveCD

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


I have put together a livecd for chemsitry and I have timed different programs.


As expected the livecd is much slower running from the cdrom, but as usual, it depends.


On a PIV 3.2GHz, 512MB, 52xCDROM, the livecd is most of the time faster than from the harddrive on a PIII 850MHz, 128MB, 24xCDROM.


Anyway, more in the pdf file.

I am in the process of writing an article about my livecd that will include why I chose Mandrake, why I chose the packages I have included and also how I went about it. I will also talk about the different steps involved in creating a livecd.


My laptop crashed (sad, but at least it gave me a good excuse to buy a new one :D ) and I don't know if I had the file on the hard drive or not. If that was the case, I might well start a new article.


Anyway, bottom line is, it will take time. It is highly unlikely that it will be finished before may or even june, but it will be done.





P.S. I registered on geektyme, so I will be posting this article there.
