Onebase Linux Project has created a special flavor of itsOnebaseGo Live CD that comes with a complete KDE 3.3 Beta desktop and Koffice 1.3.2. It is intended for reporting bugs in KDE and as a Technology preview. It can be installed to hard-disk to have a fully functional Onebase Linux OS. However it is not meant for production use and only users who prefer using the unstable repository are recommended to perform an HD-installation.

This is actually a great idea!
Being able to bug-test on a system that won’t (or at least, shouldn’t) break your existing box is great.
With this I can help fix the bugs in my favourite DE without risking useability on all my machines. Excellent work.
Pretty darn inovative!
This is sweet stuff!
I remember back before the release of KDE 3.2 (or was it KDE 3.1?), someone distributed a knoppix-varient that included a cvs copy of KDE in LinuxTag (or was it another conference?).. it was a great success.
This is great… loved the idea!
I want to thank the Onebase Project developers for doing this wonderful service to the KDE community.
I hope that the gain a few new users in the process. Let’s get to bug reporting and bug squashing. I wish we had a sort of visible barometer that showed which users had accurately reported most bugs.
It would be kind of neat to have LUG-based competitions around the idea of bug-squashing. You could then say that NYlug or Mialug or whomever had done the most for KDE’s stability. Nothing breeds innovation like a little friendly competition.
Anyone want to run with that idea?
Nice… now I don’t have to compile the bastard! This will make bug-reporting like 10x easier! *KUDOS!*
KDE 3.3 is a great release, on SUSE at least. I downloaded and tested it on my SUSE 9.0. The fonts are great, the tools are great and most of the apps are great.
Konqueror is pretty fast and stable by now. It handles almost all the pages that Explorer can.
The beta release is pretty stable so give it a try if you are a KDE fan
How to burn this thinggy..? There is an *.img, but then there’s also a folder with boot-stuff in it…
Just burn the .iso file.
Do not extract it.
That’s what I did… I ended up with the *img file plus the folder “isolinux” von my CD. My md5 is correct.
Then boot it up
(hope you have configured your BIOS for cd booting)
Jesus, do you think I did not try booting it?! How does your average bootable CD look like? Certainly, you will have all sorts of files on it instead of them being hidden away in a isolinux-folder. Has anybody tried this out successfully? I think the ISO is packed up wrongfully.
The isolinux folder contains instructions to boot.
And onebase.img contains the OS. So you have the right contents.
