Elive: Where Debian meets Enlightenment

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

Elive is a Debian-based desktop Linux Live CD distribution with the Enlightenment window manager, version 17. On Tuesday Elive 3.0 was released to the public. I was very excited to try Elive.

DistroWatch reported the details about this release, 'Elive is a Morphix-based Linux live CD designed for fans of the Enlightenment desktop environment. Version 0.3 is the project's first stable release: "Elive 0.3 released. This version includes hard disk installation, NVIDIA driver, the possibility to compile and install any program in the live CD system or install any extra package on the fly, stable and fully configured environment. With this version installed on the hard disk, you have an option to upgrade to another version with a simple apt-get upgrade." Also includes support for several languages, the second beta of OpenOffice.org 2.0, and the latest Enlightenment 17 straight from its CVS repository.'

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
