Test Fedora Live Image Available

Just in time for the holidays, I've put up a new rawhide live image for some testing fun. Available as usual via bittorrent from http://spins.fedoraproject.org

Some notes:

  • i686 version of the main/desktop/gnome image only. We had planned to have a KDE version, but some last minute problems have led to holding off for now. Hopefully we'll get that taken care of and I can post a KDE4 image next week
  • The images are set up to have SELinux in permissive mode as opposed to enforcing due to bug #425819
  • The keyboard screen in the installer is disabled due to it needing some work for some API changes in firstboot (#424811)
  • evince is not included on the image to keep the size down. evince now ends up pulling in a large amount of tetex-fonts (#426388)
  • To log in, you'll want to click on the Fedora Live user and enter a blank password

The set of images have a lot of things available for some testing. This includes (entirely non-comprehensive, based purely on what I know about and am thinking of today)

  • Firefox 3 Beta 2
  • Installer support for resizing ext2, ext3 and ntfs partitions and logical volumes. PLEASE BACK UP YOUR DATA FIRST! 🙂
  • Installer support for encrypted block devices, including /
  • And a whole bunch of things I'm not thinking about right now

So download and enjoy. As always, file bugs in bugzilla against the 'rawhide' version of the Fedora product against the package you have trouble with.

  1. kde version

    looking forward for the KDE version of live rawhide! Would be good to have a fedora version of KDE 4 pre-release! thanks for your hard work 🙂

  2. Uhm…

    Sorry, but there is no such torrent file in that directory:)
    I’d like very much to test it (great idea btw to test using live images instead of installing (and potentially ruin my laptop for the holidays)) but … please the torrent file on the right place:)
