Does anyone know of a working link to the iso for the LiveCD for PPC with KDE? I don't actually want to install linux on my Powerbook. I just want a working LiveCD with a gui ready to go as soon as I boot up. I know there used to be a link "http://gentoo.oregonstate.edu/releases/ppc/livecd/1.4_rc7/", but that link and that directory in all the mirrors is gone.

I do know that they are planning on releasing another LiveCD with KDE soon, but I would just like to be able and download the previous version.

If someone could please post a link to this previous version I would very much appreciate it.

It sure would be nice if they starting releasing those again, I liked the one for x86 w/ distcc kde & gnome. If you have the actual file name you might try putting it in google maybe someone has it on a public FTP site somewhere.

you can take a look at a alpha knoppix ppc cd. i think it was put out by a french person, as it is by default in french (not german of knoppix x86)

i dont know if its anywhere near its x86 counterpart in quality, but if it works, then you will have kde, as knoppix is very kde orianted (although it has many many other wm's)

the 2004.x livecd is a joke at this point. it has been talked about for a while, and said it was coming out (do a forum search) but it is still has not.


if you can find the 1.4, or try to get developers to put it back up on the servers, it works, with kde and gnome, but i think it is a very old version of kde.

From what I recall reading, the current thought is that the new livecd should hopefully be out by Fathers Day ( IIRC ) - I hope so as the livecd is a very useful thing.

Regarding the previous ISO, i'm using it right now to post this message - unfortunantly i'm on a 56k dial up connection which kinda inhibits me uploading it to a website, but i'll try and find the filename out and see if its still archived anywhere on the net.
