This page discusses the possible ways to build a ["LiveCD"] for DebianScience.

Live CD that already exist

CD or DVD ?

Should we put all the scientific tools on one single CD? If yes, then [http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2005/07/msg00003.html a DVD should be more sensible].

Otherwise, if we want to stick to CD, maybe several thematic CD sets could be build.

Available tools that could be used for building live CD

Knoppix

Pros :

Cons :

  • Not 100% Debian (specific kernels and configuration packages).
  • The knoppix mastering scripts and configuration packages have not yet been ported to Debian.
