Packt Publishing has an interview with the creator of Puppy Linux.
OSDir has some nice looking screenshots of the latest Elive beta.
Linux Forums has a good article on remastering Damn Small Linux.
The long awaited final release of BackTrack, the combination of WHAX (Whoppix) and Auditor, is out and available for download.
SLAX has a new release several days after their last one. The main reason for this release is the addition of safe NTFS write support.
NewsForge has a journey through educational open source software which eventually ends up successful with a lightweight LiveCD.
This article from PC Pro has some pretty opinionated ideas about which OS is the best to get work done in, and while I don’t agree with many of them, the author does have some nice things to say about DSL and SLAX.
The Kororaa Project has published their findings having to do with the reported GPL violation that resulted from distributing the non-GPL ATI and NVIDIA video drivers with their LiveCD.
In short, this all seems like too much bother for a Live CD. At this stage I will not be releasing the Kororaa Xgl Live CD 0.3, but will continue to make 0.2 available.
I found the menus chocked full of applications and utilities. There was a multitude of Puppy specific configuration utilities for just about everything from net connection, wireless, sound, modem, printer, and more.
TuxMachine.org has another good review of Symphony OS 2006-05 Beta (act 5). Included are lots of screenshots of its unique desktop.
Phoronix has screenshots of the new LG3D LiveCD.
Linux.com reviews the extremely useful GParted LiveCD.
Need a way to resize NTFS partitions, mirror disk images, or otherwise muck about with disk partitions — and don’t want to use a proprietary package like Partition Magic? If so, the GNOME Partition Editor (GParted) is an excellent open source tool for the task. The GParted team released the GParted live CD version 0.2.4-2 this month, so I decided it was a good time to take GParted for a spin.
TuxMachines.org has a review of the PCLinuxOS based Wizard’s Kid-Safe Livecd. As the name states, it’s made for kids, and includes web filtereing, games, and more stuff to keep kids occupied safely.
Upon login one is immediately greeted by the Kid-Safe Welcome! It is a html page with logos linking to sites of interest to children such as libraries, pbs, online books & games and children friendly search engines.
A new version of DSL is out, some notabe additions are a C compiler and rsync.
Slashdot has news and comments on the current Kororaa LiveCD issues. The Kororaa project received an email stating they were in violation of the GPL by distributing their XGL LiveCD with NVIDIA and ATI binary drivers. Unfortunately, XGL does not work without these drivers, making the distributing of the CD without them pointless. I hope this is cleaned up, because they are not the only LiveCD distributing binary graphics drivers.
Free Software Magazine has a great article on Knoppix for those looking to learn a bit about Linux.
Getting started with Knoppix Linux doesnâ€™t have to be costly. Chances are you already have everything you need. The requirements are simple. Any computer newer than 5 years old with a working bootable CD or DVD drive should be able to run Knoppix.
Capnkirby.com has a review of PCLinuxOS MiniMe 0.93. The review moves from LiveCD to hard drive distro after the installation step.
