On DW BK talks about a live cd ??

http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=08279

This is a small and experimental live CD which, unlike the the original Quirky 6.0 released last month, is binary compatible with "Trusty Tahr", Ubuntu's current development tree. From the

But on ibiblio I do not see it.

Could anyone give me the link to this LIVECD ?

(which might make installing much easier for noobs like me).

1. needs "rfkill unblock wlan" just like Precise5.7.1 to activate my Broadcom wifi

2. was able to compile the Broadcom STA wl.ko driver - however loading the kernel sources caused some problems - I downloaded the sfs mentioned on BK's blog and converted it to a pet - however this took a long, long, long time to install

3. running the First-run settings manually from the menu caused my selected background to revert to the default

Cheers

For those looking to take advantage of the pets available on Tahr, I downloaded and successfully ran PDF Shuffler in Tahr with no problems. I personally have been waiting forever to successfully run PDF Shuffler in Puppy, so I have to send a hoorah!! There are issues with some of the built-in items like FFConvert but it was nice to see the package manager doing such a nice job on the Ubuntu packages. Thanks Barry!

P.S. - For those that haven't seen, the new Quirky (Non-Tahr) has an upgrade to 6.1.4 in the Version Upgrade Manager. I haven't seen an official posting from Barry on this so it might still be in the testing stages before an official announcement. To play it safe, I made a new install of 6.1.3 on a different USB and then upgraded. No serious issues with 6.1.4 so far that I can see.

Best,

Slavvo67

Acccording to Barry's Blog

Quote:

3. The "pet-tahr" repo in the Quirky Package Manager is not yet working


It's a lot of work for Barry to make a repository since all the apps
in the Ubuntu Tahr repository have to be carefully copied to a new
database.


No, "pet-tahr" is just a collection of PET packages that have been compiled in Quirky Tahr, or that we want for Quirky Tahr and not available elsewhere.

You can see online what is in there:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-tahr/

Not much. Evince is a multiprotocol chat client, already included in the Quirky Tahr build.

EDIT:
Sorry, I got them mixed up, Evince is a PDF viewer.
The multiprotocol chat client is qutIM.
