What a lot more people seem to do, if they want to play around with open source software, is to not use Linux, but use Fink to install KDE or Gnome or whatever window manager they want on top of OS X (since OS X is already a Unix basis, and it even already has an Apple-distributed X-windows manager, there's no reason you can't run KDE or Gnome on top of the "Darwin" part of OS X instead of the OS X Aqua GUI).
You can google for this... here is an example walkthrough:
FWIW I don't think you're constrained to having the X environment in a window like they show it. I know Apple's X manager allows X to go full screen.
Once you're running KDE and X on top of Darwin, and you use Fink to get packages for the standard Open Source stuff, it really will be so much like using Linux that you might find you don't need to bother with live cd's.
But then again, of course, it might not.
I tried one a while back on my PB and didn't have a problem with it. The 32 bit version might work better.Eraserhead said:Does it actually work? I download the live cd for my iMac G5 (I used the 64 bit version) and it just crashed on startup...

Oh, sorry, I misunderstood your title to mean if there were any still being updated/supported. But now I know what you were talking about. I may have to give one a try myself...I never could make it work on my parents' PC because it didn't have enough RAM.Wellander said:Hi,
OpenSuse needs to be installed though.
