Icecream Live CD

After having worked the whole week with an icecream farm at Rob's place,
I couldn't cope with the fact that my other pcs (two older linux machines, one windows macine)
are mostly idle... So I started the creation of a "OpenSuSE 10.1 Icecream Slave Live-CD"
(nice name eh ;-)

Beineri told me about Torsten Duwe's excellent live cd/dvd creation scripts. All I had to
do is setting up a new "icecream.config" file, a new package selection (text only minimal)
and run the scripts. 20 minutes later the 181 MB iso could be burnt.

Machine boots, automatically sets up networking. Login as root (no password), rcicecream start.
That's it :-) If the scripts are of any use, leave a comment and I'll upload them to my ktown account.

I'd be interested in those scripts.
Could you make them available anywhere or send them to me?
My address would be christian.nitschkowski@kdemail.net

Thanks in advance...

Hi there,

I've uploaded the config files for the creation process to:
http://ktown.kde.org/~wildfox/ktown/Icecream-LiveCD

You still need Torsten Duwes livecd creation scripts from
novell forge, read the README and alter the paths in
icecream.config - if you need any further help contact me
either here or on irc.kde.org, #ksvg channel...
