lxde-sid a lightweight iso

Postby captagon » Tue Jan 13, 2009 12:30 am

I have tried to build a leigthweight lxde-iso based on debian-sid with some sidux-tools. It's a Live-CD with easy possibility to install it on HD.
attention: the lxde-sid-lite.iso starts in live-mode in german, if you want to use an english version please press (short after CD-start in grub) the F4 button to chooce the language.

for german users: http://cap.gediam.de

I have choosen lightweigt applications for many normal purposes, but I haven't put an office-software on the iso, because of the users have different demands.
I recommend as office-software koffice for post install. Koffice uses not so much kdelibs ( kdelibs4c2a). If you need a good spreadsheet, I recommend gnumeric for postinstall.

for making it lighter I have put a little script start_slim to change the display-manager gdm for the lighter slim after HD-installation. The script also removes many parts of gnome-libraries. Note, that start_slim also removes file-roller. You can use xarchiver instead.

some important applications on the iso: http://cap.gediam.de/apps-en.html

the full list of packages: http://cap-sid.frickelplatz.de/lxde-sid/lxdesid2-snapshot-lxde-sid-i386-200812251849.i386.manifest

download: http://cap.gediam.de/download-en.html

Have a lot of fun
regards Thomas

I have updated the lxde-sid.iso with a snapshot of debian-sid from jul. 15. 2009
Feel free to test it.

http://cap.gediam.de/index-en.htm

and some sidux-tools (like a gui-installer/usb-installer from the LiveCD)
the kernel is the linux-image-2.6.30-1.slh.3-sidux-686 and
xserver-common in version 2:1.6.2-1

here the full list of the packages:
http://cap-sid.frickelplatz.de/lxde-sid/lxdesid-snapshot-lxde-sid-i386-200907151456.i386.manifest

now you can test the lxde-sid-iso in different languages (press the f4-button while the grub-bootmanager is seen), default is german
de (german), en, bg, da, el, es, fr, hr, hu, it, ja, nl, pt, pt_BR, ro, ru

regards T.

Hey, I missed this. I'm downloading it now. Thanks.

LXDE is the best desktop for a live-CD because it's so lightweight. I think there should be a Forum category for LXDE live-CDs.

Got it. This is really polished. Nice job. So, how can I pull it apart? I looked for a filesystem.squashfs but there isn't one. My guess is that it is bound in the initrd.img. Sorry, it's an incurable disease; I have to look. :geek:
