Devel Live CD 10.1
Live CD boot options
Two options are available when the user boots the Live CD, one that uses normal display settings, and a second one that provides VESA Framebuffer instructions for those who experience issues with the first option. The system will ask you to type in a password for the root account, which will be used to login into the actual session. Users will be dropped to a shell prompt. From here, you need to type the “startx” command in order to start the desktop environment a.k.a. the X11 session.
Simple, basic graphical desktop environment
The desktop environment includes a taskbar, a dock, a desktop widget powered by Conky, and a shortcut to the Home folder. X File Explorer is the default file manager, X File Write the default text editor, and QupZilla the default web browser. If you want to use Devel Live CD for building Linux operating systems, then you should know that it only creates Fedora, Debian or Slackware based distributions.
Contains popular open-source applications
The main menu provides links to various other popular applications, such as Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, WinSCP, and others, which can be installed with a single mouse click. In case you want to run some Windows apps, the powerful Wine software is installed by default, along with the Internet Explorer, Wordpad, Task Manager and Registry Editor applications.
All in all, Devel Live CD is very simple, yet powerful enough to be used as a daily operating system. It support the 32-bit/x86 architectures, with and without SMP (Symmetric Multiprocessing). The latest version is always based on the latest 4MLinux and Fedora releases.
