Scientific Linux Live CD 4.3

Scientific Linux Live CD 4.3 has been released for both i386 and x86_64

Many thanks go to Urs Beyerle and PSI for creating and documenting Scientific Linux Live CD 4.3.

The Scientific Linux Live CD/DVD is a bootable CD/DVD that runs Linux directly from CD/DVD without installing (like Knoppix and many others). It is based on Scientific Linux 4 (SL4). It uses Unification File System (unionfs), allowing read-only filesystem to behave as a writable one and squashfs providing on-the-fly decompression that allows to store 2GB software on a normal CD-ROM. The Live CD/DVD was build using modified scripts from

  • LiveCD: fits on a normal CD-ROM (ISO image: livecd)
  • LiveCD64: CD-ROM for 64bit (ISO image: livecd64)
  • LiveDVD: only fits on a DVD (ISO image: livedvd)
  • LiveDVD64 for 64bit (ISO image: livedvd64)
  • Mini LiveCD: rescue system (<190MB), fits on a mini CD-ROM (ISO image: mini_livecd)

It's now possible to save your session data and some configurations (keyboard, X11 configuration) to an USB stick (or to local hard disk): Just run save-localdata.
