New KDE Four Live Images

New KDE Four Live CDs with KDE 4.4.1, and much more are up.

They were built with openSUSE Build Service's KDE:Medias project and SUSE Studio and consist of openSUSE 11.2 plus all updates, KDE 4.4.1, upstream branding, Nepomuk enabled and Strigi disabled (because it's a Live CD).

They can be used as Live USB sticks too, see these instructions if you don't know how to dd a file to a device.

You can also install to disk and use it as a normal distribution using the installer on the desktop. Once installed, the first update will pull in all the packages that are normally on an openSUSE KDE install that do not fit on a single CD.


Since it's based on openSUSE 11.2 + Updates, I can install it for everyday usage right? (rather than installing openSUSE 11.2 and after then adding the repos and doing updates)

Thanks :)

Of course you can install for everyday usage - it is just a shortcut to openSUSE 11.2, avoiding all the boring online updates that slow down the installation, and registering and installing KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop 4.4.1 packages.

Thanks (and sorry for the stupid question :D). So, this CD is that what I was looking for then!
