MCNLive Kris - Release Candidate

Here we are with the release candidate version of MCNLive Kris! All problems found in the betas should be fixed by now. If no new problems are found this one will simply be renamed to final. icon_idea.gif

A small introduction for the people who didn't follow the betas:

Here is MCNLive Kris!

It won't have all the nice features you might remember from MCNLive, but the most important things are there. Copy2ram is present, remastering on-the-fly is possible again and even booting from USB is no problem at all!

Note that the way MCNLive is put on an USB stick has slightly changed. There is no wizard for this anymore, but you can simply dd the iso image to your stick, just like Mandriva One. You should even be able to use Mandriva Seed to put the image on your stick! smile.gif

As I said, there are things which we didn't got running (which doesn't mean it won't return in a next release, just not on "Kris"). For example persistent changes with a loopfile are not possible. Also the boot screens are not graphical (the boot menu still is though).

Since you need a lot more memory to run Mandriva 2010.0 with KDE 4.3 then you needed to have in order to run Mandriva 2007.1 with KDE 3.5, we added a bootoption 'useswap', which searches your drive for swap partitions and enables them, giving you some more space to breathe. wink2.gif


The name "Kris"
Kris is offcourse the nickname of the original MCNLive maintainer, so in some way this can be seen as a tribute to her work. On the other hand, a kris or keris can be a weapon, which is processed in the wallpaper.




ISO contents
MCNLive Kris is based upon a fully updated Mandriva 2010.0 release, with KDE SC 4.3.5 as desktop environment. SMplayer is added for your multimedia needs and since we do have a remaster option, we added K3B to enable you to burn the remaster directly. smile.gif

Firefox is the default web browser but you can use Konqueror from the menu if you wish.

As you see, "Kris" is not filled with loads of software, but since you are able to remaster it you can easily create your own version with the pieces of software you need. icon_idea.gif


Testing
While most should work fine, it can perfectly be that it won't work on your hardware. Besides you might find some issues we haven't found while beta testing. If you run into problems running "Kris", please let us know by replying in this topic. Please do not reply with "it doesn't work", but try to ground your reply. One small side note: if your hardware doesn't work on Mandriva One, it probably won't on MCNLive either.

In case of hardware problems, the output of this command can be very helpful:
CODE
lspcidrake -v



Putting "Kris" on USB
As said, you should be able to use Mandriva Seed, but if you're not affraid to use the command-line you can easily use the dd-command. Note that you put the image over the whole stick, not on a partition so you lose all contents of the stick!
CODE
dd if=mcnlive-kris-rc1.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M && sync

Where you change sdX into the device of your choice. Please be careful selecting the right device or you might overwrite your harddrive. wink2.gif

King

I have RC1 and think its great, I'm running it as a VM now and hope to have it HD installed this afternoon.

Any idea when the final release version might be available?

I'm sure you know of certain things that may be buggy, but so far everything I've used works.

Well, we kinda decided that RC1 = final, but after some problems with the server we weren't able to rename the iso (or upload a new one)...
