Description Bernardo S. A. Silva 2003-01-02 09:16:07 UTC
Hi everyone,

 The new LiveCD is becoming great. I have two sugestions:

 1- Where is the install.txt file, like in Gentoo 1.2 (it is good to remember
the steps). I know that I can use lynx and, but the file is good
to make installations without connection (like coping the portage snapshot and
the distfiles to teh directories).

 2- I had never seen a LiveCD distrib. that have cdrtools. It can be VERY useful
when used on PCs with RuinDows that the cd-record apps doesn't recognize ISO. In
my work place it is a problem. When I want to record an ISO I need to use
cdrtools-win32 that always crash.

   It is only sugestions... thanx a lot... Bernardo S. A. Silva

OK, install.txt is missing... will consider cdrtools.
Comment 2 Bernardo S. A. Silva 2003-01-22 22:50:45 UTC

 So. Did you put cdrtools on rc2? Are you planning to put it on rc3 or final?

   Thanx, Bernardo S. A. Silva

I think we will leave it off, but we are working on a nice "create your own livecd" script that will allow you to create your own livecd with cdrtools.
