LiveCD with latest KDE and Konqueror
 
Hello, I'm looking for a KDE LiveCD with three requirements:
1. Latest KDE (4.9 or 4.10, it can be a beta LiveCD).
2. It cannot be DVD (not more than 700MB).
3. Konqueror pre-installed (please, don't say "you can install it").

I don't care about things like package management, since the only thing I need to test is KDE itself. I quit using KDE in 2008, and never tested it anymore. If I like it, I'll probably install it on my box later. Also, I don't want to install it here just for the sake of testing, since a distro that ships KDE probably put some effort into getting things to work.

I believe many distros don't ship Konqueror, but only Dolphin + Firefox/Chrome instead.

Thanks to anyone who would help me finding it!

Maybe Sabayon 10? I think it's a DVD, though, and not a CD.

Ah, no please, a CD. I'm asking this question because internet connection here is not abundant, so I want to download only one time, and in CD.

EDIT: I have edited the question. Also, I had a look, and yes, they ship DVDs only.

For KDE4, and especially with Konqueror included by default, might be tough to find what you want on a live CD.

Does the Fedora 18 KDE spin include Konqueror?

OMG, with so many many distros around :cry:

How could I find it out? Any ideas? Also, are you sure Sabayon includes Konqueror?

I had a look at Fedora: http://spins.fedoraproject.org/kde/#about
They include Konqueror on a 805MB image. I don't know the version yet.

As I recall, Konqueror was the default web browser in the Fedora 17 KDE spin. Still haven't been able to find out for sure if that's the case in F18, so hopefully somebody will chime in.

I'm pretty sure that Sabayon 10 includes it. I'm typing from that one at the moment; it has Konqueror and I don't recall adding it.

Alright, thank you! I'm reading http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/fedora-18-kde.html, and F18 includes Konqueror, but the review is creepy!

Have you seen this list? (first Google result for "KDE distributions")

http://www.kde.org/download/distributions.php

That should help you narrow your search, good luck! :)

Yeah, but I've read some of his reviews and then ended up liking the release he hated.

Now I think I'm more confused than before, lol! It's really hard to find out which apps do they ship by default!

I ended up reading some more reviews and I must agree that he goes a bit too far!

I think I'll do some more research. I'm still between OpenSUSE, Mageia, Mint, Chakra, and Sabayon.

Kubuntu doesn't come with Konqueror, and I'll leave Fedora for when I want to try GNOME3.

PCLinuxOS has KDE and Konqueror; they should be up-to-date, since it's rolling release. But it's a DVD. Could you not order a DVD by post?

Exe GNU/Linux fits on a CD but uses Trinity: that's a fork of KDE 3.

Salix has a KDE version on CD, but that's 4.8.

teresaejunior 01-30-2013 09:15 PM

I ended up actually ignoring the review I read and downloaded Fedora 18. Fedora has a more vanilla KDE installation, with Konqueror, Krusader, Calligra..., etc, instead of the traditional Firefox, LibreOffice, GIMP... So it it perfect for testing the KDE environment.
