Tenth Anniversary Test: Live CD for Gentoo Linux 10.0

Sep 28, 2009

The Gentoo project is celebrating its tenth anniversary, which inspired the Gentoo-Ten team to produce a special DVD that is now available in a test version.

In a relatively brief announcement by Matthew Summers on the Gentoo homepage, the Gentoo-Ten project celebrates its tenth anniversary. In honor of it, the team is producing a Live DVD for version 10.0 that is for 32-bit and 64-bit systems and ready for testing. The Gentoo-Ten team recommends "testing like crazy" to produce "the greatest Live CD ever."

The 32-bit DVD is a dual-arch DVD that can be booted with standardgentoo.

The 64-bit version uses gentoo64 for booting. Alternatively 64-bit systems can use a separate DVD. The homepage currently gives few technical details, but Distrowatch.com reports that the anniversary edition Gentoo contains Kernel 2.6.30, Glibc 2.9 and GCC 4.3.2, with KDE 4.3.1 used for the desktop (GNOME 2.24 and XFCE 4.6.1 are also available). The system is also installable on hard disk.

  • Gentoo Ten Live DVD

    Hi there.

    As with other users, I would absolutely dearly love to have an installed copy of the live dvd on my hard drive.

    Is there any method that anybody out there could suggest that would make this possible? Alternatively, could the dvd be used as an update for a previous release?

    Many thanks to the authors of this magazine; I've learnt much from it.
  • Hi

    I would like to install Gentoo LiveDVD 10.0... of course, but i can't. When u read on Crtl+Alt+F1, it's says: Use "installer" for install... And u know what?! there isn't a "installer"
  • gentoo 10.0

    How can I install it on my HD?
  • Go Gentoo!

    Go Gentoo!
    Ten more, and then another ten after that. happy

    That's a great distribution.
  • clarification

    Just to clear up any confusion, the instructions posted are for booting the hybrid live dvd, which supports both 32 and 64 bit environments. If you grab the amd64 iso, you need only issue the command 'gentoo' at the kernel boot command line.
