************************************************************************************************************* Details for Mandriva VirtualCity Live from USB with VM and KDE 3D 2007- Created by Ratio: 1.27love2share 2 days ago Applications : Linux : English A newbie to Linux (although having tried several distro's like Knoppix , Ubuntu etc) I find this Live Mandriva distro ravishing and ideal to work from with an USB stick (preferable 1 gig or more but 512 mb will do). Although I'm, as said , not an expert to be able to judge this , I must say, it feels very good and working from the stick is great!! Everything works very fast. It comes with Opera as standard browser. Very recommended. It's a .iso download of about 360 mb and as I said really works like a charm.And you can save some documents and specific settings (read about this more below) on the stick easily with a wizard.

Notes from the Releaser: Preparing and creating this VirtualCity edition was fun! Never thought that playing with virtualization could be so entertaining. Thank you korrel (Marco) for packaging the VirtualBox OSE version for Mandriva 2007. And thanks to all testers for the feedback. Following the highlights of MCNLive "VirtualCity": * Presenting the Open Source Edition of VirtualBox. It seems that Mandriva 2007 and VirtualBox are a dream team. Create 'Virtual Machines', run existing VM's from your hard disks. Use this Live CD (or Live USB) in combination with a USB hard drive (packed with your favorite operating systems). The perfect mobile solution. Or just use it to discover what this virtualization is all about. * All security and bugfixes updates from MDV 2007 have been applied. Handling of the JMicron controller should be improved. * And of course all the stunning features of Cherbourg are included. Create a bootable USB pen drive with a few clicks, run the system with the copy2ram cheatcode, make your own personalized live version on-the-fly, mount NTFS partitions read-write. * Applications: KDE desktop environment, konqueror, Opera, Amarok, JuK, kaudiocreator, kmplayer, digikam, KOffice suite, KDE games, Kontact suite, smb4k, kasablanca, kopete, k3b, Ark, kget, kate, Yakuake - and of course MCC, the Mandriva Control Center. I hope you will enjoy this special edition of MCNLive.
* VirtualBox OSE (Open Source Edition) pre-installed. Create new Virtual Disk Images on a hard disk, run existing images stored on your hard disk. Requirements: enough RAM. Please give us some feedback, test and report bugs, either on http://www.mandrivaclub.n[...]dex.php?showforum=30 or via email (mcnlive at googlemail.com). It's the first OSE version for Mandriva 2007 Official. korrel: you rock More info about this virtualization software: http://www.virtualbox.org * A bunch of packages have been updated from the official MDV 2007 update mirrors, incl. the kernel (jmicron controller now detected?). Opera updated to version 9.10. * Small changes to the mklivecd scripts and the 'Create Live USB' script. Added a special script for folks who have Flash Drives with non-valid MBR's. * VirtualCity is an English only edition. The updates and VirtualBox made it necessary to remove the NL and FR localizations, in order to keep the size small and to not break the copy2ram feature on boxes with 512 MB RAM. * All features from Cherbourg are included.
Good to know:
* about changes of the system wide settings, making them persistent, doing it automatically * about running MCNLive from an internal or external normal (powered) hard drive 0. MCNLive is designed to run from CD or from an USB Flash Drive (with flash memory), it is designed to run in live mode and to be portable, with dynamic hardware detection. MCNLive Cherbourg includes small wizards to save your personal settings and documents. (And it has a very easy way to make your own version, your own live cd, with all your changes included.) It does not include any automatic way/scripts to make the system wide settings (network settings, hardware related configurations, additional installed software or such persistent after a reboot.
1. The best way to use Linux/Mandriva Linux on on internal harddrive is to just perform a normal installation. Mandriva will take care of a sane re-partitioning of the drive, no matter if you have NTFS or FAT filesystems, no matter if you already have a MS Windows system installed. It will do fine in 99,9% cases. A 'live mode' system with special startup scripts, with dynamic hardware detection performed at every boot, with the special limitations of a live system, is really not recommended.
2. External USB hard drive (powered, not flash memory) Read 1) Just perform a normal Mandriva installation. You can buy a good USB (powered) Minidisk of 40 GB for ~ 60 Euro.
3. We have tested and made MCNLive to run from USB Flash Memory (USB sticks, pendrives, flash cards ...). Flash memory has a limited life time, it depends on the quality of the hardware and how many write-cycles are made. We want MCNLive to not damage the USB stick. Some Linux Live distros have a feature to store/write sytem wide changes, mostly implemented in a way that accesses (write to it) the Flash Drive constantly while running it. When you use a Flash Drive regularly this way you will damage it within a few months (if not weeks). So far I have not had the time to find a 99% secure, sane and reliable way to do this. If I am not mistaken, 'Mandriva Flash' use such a secure method. The default MCNLive on a flash drive does not write to your drive at all, or only once per session when you save your personal documents/settings with the included wizards.
