• I finally burned this latest image and went to test it, only to find that it always boots to install mode?
    did we do away with the live CD function? Does nobody have a purpose for that function anymore?
    I DID! :'(

    ps I do not like the idea of not having a live CD, as I managed to wipe 2 different drives on other distributions that did not use a live cd.
    there is also no visible exit once it boots and nowhere on the website or release notes that it is no longer a live CD. :-\ >:(

    If by "nowhere" you mean it's in the first page of the release notes, you're right.

    LiveCD isn't all that useful anymore. It's another platform that requires accommodating during development, when very few people used it. Most of the time it just confused people, left them asking why they rebooted and lost all their config. Well, it wasn't actually installed and nothing was setup to store the config.

    I know it's useful for a very small number of people, it was deemed more work than it was worth though.


  • I've been following the RSS feed of the announcements, which I don't think mentioned it. although I am still surprised I missed that giant block of information, I remember looking over the full change log but don't remember seeing that.
    I'll have to find a USB drive for sacrifice :( and finally figure out why I can't get the darn things to accept the image and boot ( it's specific to PFS as it says it cannot find the boot cd image, my next step is DD and that requires some more research on the exact method).
