RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux are special DVD that can transform your computer in a powerful Gentoo GNU/Linux box in less than 5 minutes. Gentoo GNU/Linux is a particular Linux flavour powered by a "software install manager" engine called Portage. What is an "Install Manager" ? It's a software that installs and configure applications for you. RR4 Linux is completely installable on a plain Hard Drive, in this way you can touch with your hand the power of Gentoo GNU/Linux and of the other applications installed, like KDE, GNOME, XFCE, Fluxbox, KOffice, OpenOffice, FreeNX, amaroK, Kaffeine, etc...
The RR64 Linux is developed in parallel to RR4 and support the latest 64bit Processors. Unleash the power of your x86-64 CPU, get RR64 !

2.40 on the way, 2.6.11 - kde 3.4 (fantastic) - gnome 2.10.

I'm serious, if you want an amd64 version, I need help. I don't have much time and I'm alone.
AMD64 version is ready but I've some ugly problems with catalyst and udev.

Tomorrow I'll post the problem.

I have an AMD64 3000+, with a asus K8N mainboard (nforce3 250). I'm still a little noob in linux, but maybe i can help you ;)

No. For now you cannot copy the cd to hard disk.

Well, now. That's not quite true :)

You can copy it to the HD, and with a bit of fantasmo Keyboarding, you can get it to boot off the HD.

Won't do much good until I (or someone else) gets the compiler suite bootstrapped back into it on the HD, other than you can run what the CD comes with.

My goal is to build an installer that will basically install a Gentoo system based off the CD, ready to continue emerging packages from there.

I've had to take a pause on building an installer until my life returns to normal (we just had our second child born a few weeks back. I'm still *tired* ... :)

That, and I'm still doing a large sum of my work booting off the CD the last couple weeks, I really need to reinstall my two dev systems.

hey will the minimal livecd get a bump too? I see that your site only shows the full livecd available but your other mirrors like no-ip show a different site with different information.

Extremely nice Live-CD! It would be important to me to have JFFS2 filesystem (which requires mtd too) support. Could it be in next release?

edit:
Modules I'd need:

Symbol: MTD [=m]
Prompt: Memory Technology Device (MTD) support
Defined at drivers/mtd/Kconfig:5
Location:
-> Device Drivers
-> Memory Technology Devices (MTD)

AND

Prompt: MTD emulation using block device
Defined at drivers/mtd/devices/Kconfig:116
Depends on: MTD
Location:
-> Device Drivers
-> Memory Technology Devices (MTD)
-> Self-contained MTD device drivers

AND

Symbol: JFFS2_FS [=m]
Prompt: Journalling Flash File System v2 (JFFS2) support
Defined at fs/Kconfig:1052
Depends on: MTD
Location:
-> File systems
-> Miscellaneous filesystems
Selects: CRC32

that's OK, no problems! :)

I'm sorry for those who want a LiveCD but 700MB aren't enough anymore. If you want all GNOME stuff, all KDE stuff (with many languages), all XFCE4.2 stuff... 2.40 will be a LiveDVD, and it's quite ready...

Are you ready for DVD support (all libdvd*), OpenOffice Ximian 1.3.8, 5 languages for KDE 3.4 and a lot of fresh new stuff.
From 2.40, KDE will be the default choice, because KDE 3.4 is AMAZING...

Post you requests

Instead of a DVD, you could do searate CDs, one for Gnome, one for KDE, and so on. I have a DVD burner, but I don't know how many other people do. *shrug*

I have a suggestion about KDE. You could apply the pertty patches to it. (see me sig). :D :P

Thanks for the great LiveCD. :)

I know, but a DVD reader (you can ask to a friend of yours for a dvd burning) it's not so expensive....
If someone can give me some web space (10 Gigs?) I can upload the entire chroot env and you can create your version...

DVD It's the way to go... If you want a powerful Live environment, I bring it to you.

Does that mean people with only CD drives (like me) will be stuck at version 2.30?

I've been thinking about spending some money on some real hosting for this...

I'll put my money where my mouth is, but I'd really need some donations. I can get 350gb/month transfer (on 3xDS3 + 1 OC48... TONS of speed) with 20gigs of space. If there is enough interest, I'll setup the hosting and get the space. I'll even spring for a full domain for it.

If I can raise $600, I can secure this for a full year. That'd give us enough space/speed to handle pretty much anything we need,

Anyone interested in helping out? (see the site)

Garrett

This is one:
http://img136.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img136&image=screenshotkde34perrty0dy.png
It shows the shaded rubberband in the upper left corner and it is selecting a few items on on the desktop. The items have rounded corners areound the text now. And the new sidebar is activated in Konqueror. The instructions oare on the first page on how to activate it. :D

Cheers.

maybe someone has time to maintain an complete CD version... Me not ;)
AMD64 development is proceding, consider the first release a kind of beta (but not unstable).

2.40 will be the first "installer ready" and I'm in looking for an installer (any news Gserack? look at this http://dev.gentoo.org/~agaffney/gli/).

I'm glad if someone could move this topic to an international section forum section

Yeah, I'm back working on it this week. The gli installer really isn't suited to installing from the livecd, as it's primarily for installing a fresh instance of Gentoo, whereas I'm aiming for a "snapshotting" onto the hard drive from the livecd, and fixing up the bits so that you can continue emerging packages from there.

If you got that DVD out pfq, I could work with it instead of 2.3 :)

I'm biting the bullet tonight and reinstalling my two dev boxes, I've just about got to the end of my usability where I'm at with my broken installs :(

If all goes well, I'll post some screen shots late this week.

Although, it might be not a bad idea to include gli on the disc for complete fresh installs too.
