* NetBSD Live! CD 2007 released
NetBSD doesn't have an official Live CD as part of the project, but there
are several ones from 3rd parties. J=F6rg Braun from the german publisher
"Computer und Literaturverlag" (C&L) has previously made a NetBSD Live! CD
available which was available via the C&L FreeX magazine, and he has now
updated his Live CD to this millennium's state of NetBSD, and released the
2007 Edition of his NetBSD Live CD!
The CD is based on NetBSD 4.0_BETA/i386 and offers a full desktop
environment by using a compressed filesystem, which includes KDE, Abiword,
Dia, Inkscape, GIMP, Firefox, xmms and many more.
Please note that the CD was assembled the previous weekend, and that
some newssites prematurely announced this. As a result, some people
may have a file with the wrong checksum - the correct MD5 hash is
Thanks to J=F6rg Braun, Rosa Riebl all the folks at C&L for their
longtime support of NetBSD, and also to Michael Schneider, Daniel
Sieger, Martin Laubach and Florian St=F6hr for their help in
translating the German-language README file into English.
The CD is made available for everyone at no cost, please note that
commercial distribution requires a license from C&L.
Available files are:
* A torrent file for downloading with Bittorrent (preferred):
* The ISO image of the CD made by J=F6rg:
