Linux Magazine Online lets us know that Debian will have official LiveCDs with the 5.0 release.
More news about Lenny is that the Debian-Live team headed by Daniel Baumann is working on official live images. With these distributions users can employ Linux off the CD without needing to install it.
Something to watch for, Google’s Summer of Code is sponsoring a graphical utility to create custom LiveCDs!
My proposal is to construct a graphical user interface that can be used in conjunction with live-helper to build Debian Live systems, allowing editing of existing configurations and including a ‘wizard’-style walkthrough for the first-time user.
Providing less experienced users with the opportunity to easily create live distributions will generate more exposure for live-helper, providing more valuable feedback for its developers and ultimately helping Debian’s image as an extremely flexible and free operating system.
Digg is pointing to a email announcing a Debian based LiveCD for the PS3. Digg incorrectly announces it as the first, as a Gentoo LiveCD already exists. The creator of the new LiveCD makes no such claim.
DistroWatch Weekly has a quick summary of new LiveCDs from Ubuntu, Debian, and SLAX.
This week’s Debian Weekly News has links to the Debian Live project. The site has links to downloadable ISO images, and a wiki site, with much more information about the Debian Live project.
