Thats a good idea, you could add a huge amount of distfiles to a dvd. heck maybe even enough to do networkless install.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 10/20/05, <b class="gmail_sendername">Bedros Hanounik</b> &lt;

But I like the non-X liveCD (not the minimal, the Universal), everybody has X<br>livecd's and the simplicity and power of the current livecd is unmatched.<br>Is there no way of keeping the same Universal LiveCD as is now for those users that
<br>prefer it? I mean, when a system is down, there is no need to start X and have open-office and<br>x-chat, xine, mplayer, xmms, etc on the CD, but as many tools as possible, like it is now to get it back up.<br><br>Thanks,

<br>&gt; &gt; method via the livecd and I use that livecd A LOT when<br>&gt; &gt; I have to solve some problems on a linux (and even window$)<br>&gt; &gt; partition. I wouldn't not want to be able to still use the livecd
<br>
&gt; &gt; as it is currently usable, because I think it is the best livecd<br>&gt; &gt; out there. If it is going to completely<br>&gt; &gt; replace the current livecd installation method then is there<br>&gt; &gt; going to someone at Gentoo to keep up the livecd
<br>&gt; &gt; tradition?<br>&gt;<br>&gt; The concept I have in place for future releases is pretty simple.&nbsp;&nbsp;There<br>&gt; will be 2 CD images per architecture.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; 1.&nbsp;&nbsp;Minimal InstallCD<br>&gt; 2.&nbsp;&nbsp;Installer LiveCD
<br>&gt;<br>&gt; There will also be stages 1, 2, and 3 on the mirrors.&nbsp;&nbsp;You will still be<br>&gt; able to do a manual installation, but it will be highly discouraged,<br>&gt; simply due to possible problems.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; At any rate, when I say LiveCD, I mean the full-blown CD with X on it.
<br>&gt; This CD will be the replacement for both the Universal InstallCD and the<br>&gt; PackageCD.&nbsp;&nbsp;It will also be usable as a RescueCD, so essentially, it is<br>&gt; filling three roles.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; The Minimal InstallCD will be reduced even further to be usable for
<br>&gt; installation only.&nbsp;&nbsp;Any non-installation-related packages will be<br>&gt; removed from the CD.&nbsp;&nbsp;I've been considering even removing some of the<br>&gt; lesser-used drivers that typically cause problems and leaving them for
<br>&gt; the full LiveCD only.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; You can, of course, still perform a manual installation using the<br>&gt; LiveCD.&nbsp;&nbsp;You aren't forced to use the Installer.&nbsp;&nbsp;I, personally, only<br>&gt; use the LiveCD, as I like having a complete environment available when
<br>&gt; doing troubleshooting, or even just being able to get on gaim while I'm<br>&gt; waiting for my install to complete.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; --<br>&gt; Chris Gianelloni<br>&gt; Release Engineering - Strategic Lead<br>&gt; x86 Architecture Team
