Scientific Linux Live CD and DVD 4.4 has been released for both i386 and x86_64

Many thanks go to Urs Beyerle from PSI for creating and documenting Scientific Linux Live CD 4.4.

The Scientific Linux Live CD/DVD is a bootable CD/DVD that runs Linux directly from CD/DVD without installing. It is based on Scientific Linux 4.4. 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.

  • 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 (<200MB), fits on a mini CD-ROM (ISO image: mini_livecd)

Public mirrors of Scientific Linux LiveCD/DVD can be found at the Scientificlinux.org Download page.
Beside booting the LiveCD/DVD directly you can also copy it to an USB flash drive.
