openSUSE 12.1 KDE3/LXDE/XFCE-Remix
This openSUSE 12.1 Live CD is a pure remix of openSUSE 12.1 Main-Repo software with a few packages from OBS. It contains rather basic KDE3, LXDE and Xfce desktops as well as Fvwm, Icewm, Windowmaker, Enlightenment 17, Openbox and Fluxbox as very lightweight alternatives. KDE3 is the default desktop and KDM the default displaymanager (LXDM is available as alternative).
Burn this ISO file to a DVD (or CD, if the space allows), and you'll be able to boot directly from the disc.
This openSUSE 12.1 remix comes with Firefox, Midori and W3m for web browsing, Thunderbird, Claws-mail and Alpine for emailing, Gftp and Filezilla for ftp browsing, KDE3-Konqueror, Thunar, PcManfm and Midnight Commander as file managers and Qt4- and Ncurses-Yast for system configuration and package management. If something goes wrong, the Live-Installer is always available from the “Miscellaneous” section in Yast, even in text mode. If you need mp3 support for Clementine and Parole, it can be downloaded from the openSUSE non-OSS repo (as the official openSUSE 12.1 Fluendo mp3 plugin). This appliance also contains the Printer-Parallel-Support package for older printers.
The following software has been added from various OBS repos: Sax3 from OBS Sax, Fluxbox and Obmenu from OBS X11 and Knetworkmanager-kde3, Knetworkmanager-openvpn-kde3, Knetworkmanager-vpnc-kde3 and Kinternet from OBS KDE3, a basic Enlightenment 17 desktop from “Enlightenment Nightly” OBS. All other software is openSUSE 12.1 Main software.
Within the realms of possibility, I included most language packages for the corresponding applications, e.g. the „translation-common" packages for Firefox and Thunderbird and a lot of the so-called “*-lang” packages. The exception to this “rule” is KDE3 (with regard to the kde3-i18n packages), it is only available in English and German as a result of the limited CD space (English is default).
Diese Live-CD kann als deutschsprachige Live-CD benutzt werden, da die meisten deutschsprachigen Lokalisierungspakete mit dabei sind. Im KDE3-Kontrollzentrum lässt sich der Live-CD-Desktop bequem auf deutsche Sprache und deutsches Tastaturlayout umstellen.
Please note that this software remix does not contain e.g. OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Digikam, Gimp, K3b, Amarok, Chromium and Seamonkey due to space constraints.
Changelog for version 0.0.18:
I added the latest updates from openSUSE and OBS (e.g. Firefox 10.0.2 and Thunderbird 10.0.2, kernel and systemd were also updated) and removed the Mozilla OBS repo. Please note that most wifi-related software and firmware packages are not part of this appliance (e.g. openSUSE 12.1 rpms “kernel-firmware”, “ndiswrapper” as well as non-free wifi firmware from openSUSE OSS Main and Packman), so that a lot of wlan cards will not work with it.
This software remix comes with absolutely no warranty, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
