PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniME Preview !

PCLinuxOS is an English only Live CD initially based on Mandrake Linux that runs entirely from a bootable CD. Data on the CD is decompressed on the fly, allowing up to 2GB of programs on one CD, including a complete X server, KDE desktop, OpenOffice.org and many more applications all ready to use. In addition to the Live CD, you can also install PCLinuxOS to your hard drive with an easy-to-use Live CD Installer. Additional applications can be added or removed from your hard drive using a friendly apt-get front end via Synaptic Package Manager.

Texstar proudly presents the 2008 edition of PCLinuxOS MiniMe, a minimalistic Live CD with KDE, that you can play with and customize it the way you want. PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniMe comes with Linux kernel, ALSA 1.0.15 and a very basic KDE 3.5.8 desktop environment. Not only that PCLinuxOS MiniMe is a Live CD, but it can be installed on your hard drive. You
can add in your own background, window decoration, preferred applications, localizations and supporting libraries to fully trick out your desktop. Moreover, you have the possibility to remaster your own custom version of PCLinuxOS MiniMe.

Highlights of this release include:

  • Linux kernel kernel
  • ALSA 1.0.15
  • ALSA sound configuration
  • KDE 3.5.8
  • ATI/NVIDIA installation tool
  • Make Live CD GUI

    The 2007 MiniME LiveCD will boot on my computer ok, but the 2008 won’t. Sony VAIO 1.8GHz, 512 RAM, PCLOS 2007. Any ideas why not?

    PCLos Minime is a very good operating system it installed without a hitch, and as a Ancient Newbie I have found it to be the easiest desktop to use, in fact at last I am now totally LINUX!!
    I have tried various Linux systems but have settled for what to me is the best Intuative install and operating system
    Thank you Texstar and Gang

    I have to say that the PCLinuxOS 2007 is the best Linux distribution ever released. I have been trying more than 10 Linux distributions on may laptops since 2002 and finally discover this state ob the art OS. Thanks a lot to Texstar and Friends.
    I will absolutely follow your vision.
