The Bugsquad LiveDVD is basically just a simple live i385 GNU/Linux mini-distribution containing most of what is going to be KDE 4.1. I'm planning on releasing it prior to each of the KDE Bugsquad's triaging and krush events so people can take part in those events without having to download and compile themselves.
It consists of:
You can download the ISO from here: torrent (919.4MB).
When you've finished downloading, please consider seeding it. Like that others will have a chance to download it quickly as well.
The DVD ran on anything I tried on so I hope it runs on your PC as well. To use it just burn it to a DVD (or a CD if you find one big enough to fit it :-) or load it using your favourite virtual machine.
The DVD uses SYSLINUX and Debian's live-initramfs. The most common switches to use at the SYSLINUX prompt are:
|switch||parameter (default)||use to|
|keyb=KEYBOARD||countrycode (us)||set your keyboard layout|
|locale=LOCALE||locale (en_US.UTF-8)||set your locale|
|toram||copy the whole DVD's contents to RAM. Use only if you really have a LOT of it.|
|xdebconf||try a different method of determining your graphics card|
|debug||debug the live-boot process (see /var/log/live.log in the booted live system)|
|You can find out more about this and some additional switches by running |
$ man live-initramfs
