Any live Linux DVD that includes all these 10 games?


I found a list of top ten free games for Linux. Wouldn't it be nice if they were on a live dvd/
Here are the games:

In the spirit of open source, why not create the live dvd yourself? The knowledge is there, you just have to google it =)

Or ask someone to create it for you...heh

Thanks for posting the link, by the way...I know most of those games, but there are a few I'd not heard of, and the comments list quite a few more.

Most of those games require hardware 3D acceleration which you don't see very often on a Live Linux CD..

Here is a few existing Live DVD Linux Distos you can look at..

http://live.linux-gamers.net/

Hmm some games on those I haven't seen before as well..

Distrowatch was able to locate these for me..

Why don't you make one?

There are issues though with 3D support -- usually, live CD's don't have that.

I am very much willing to make one. But I don't know where to start. For example, I think the starting step would be to install some linux on my system. but I don't know which linux to start with. linux-gamers dvd is based on ArchLinux and supergamer dvd is based on VectorLinux.

I would start by going through the info and links here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_CD if you really want to learn how to create a Live CD/DVD. While you are figuring that out I'm downloading the two that I found earlier so I can try em out

Quote:
# high performance video card drivers (not preinstalled, but very easy to install):

* properitery nvidia drivers for nvidia tnt - geforce8xxx included.
* properitary ati driver (radeon 9600+ supported).

# open source drivers with 3d acceleration for many other video cards
Nice !!

in the mean time here are a few more Live Linux Gaming Distros...
