Cool Berry Linux ( A good option for newbies )


Hello ,
I am a newbie sorta in Linux world. I already tried
many distro's including Mandriva 2006, Slackware 10.1,
SuSe 10.x , Knoppix LIVE, Ubuntu, Gentoo LIVE,Berry Linux LIVE.

My all time fav Linux distro is Mandriva & in LIVE CD
catagory i prefer "Berry Linux".


Not many newbies know about "Berry Linux". Search at
google and you'll find it's web site. Berry Linux 0.72
version is based on Fedora Core 5. Everything is automated in it like in Windows XP. It automatically
mounts Windows partitions for you. In UBUNTU 6.06 LIVE
it gives mnt error. Berry has good KDE interface. And
it has good support for wireless internet, i already
using internet via LIVE CD of Berry. It's a
cool experience to surf internet via a LIVE CD....
Via LIVE CD you can also do everything.

LIVE LINUX is really a good option for newbies. No
need to make partitions on hard disk. Run your linux
from CD. No harm to computer, no data loss problem.
Try out it's good. Once you start using LIVE LINUX,
day by day you'll avoid using Windows XP, Haha ..Because
those distro's are really really amazing.. More plug n
play support even if ur not an technical person.

Best of luck,
Regard's,

I have been a fan of Berry Linux for many moons!
I do install it onto the hard drive so I can tweak it and remove all of that SCIM related stuff.
I wish he would make an English only version!

kubuntu is also a live CD KDE thingy, which I found most impressive. Last version was out June 2006.

Unfortunately, there's no pun to go with it :/

One more famous and amazing LIVE Linux distro is Knoppix
Refer www.knoppix.net for more info.


Many user's use Knoppix as a live cd option from the beginning. Now
a days all distro's are available in LIVE version. But Knoppix is
there from the beginning. Knoppix specially only goes for LIVE
CD project's.

knoppix is good, certainly, lots of software, but kubuntu is newer and supports more things (I got my wireless lan working in kubuntu, knoppix couldn't even see the card).

And no, I'm not starting a flame war, like I say, knoppix is good, LOTS of software. But better suited as a "rescue" disk in my opinion.

But as they say, you pay your money, you take your choice... only, we didn't pay no money, but we still choose

I downloaded and installed berry the other night and it is certainly a beautiful and interesting distro. Seems pretty fast.

However, I'm kind of used to synaptic (and netpkg from zenwalk) and I can't see how to update/install packages here. In the cli I've typed 'yum update' and it downloads a bunch of stuff but then stops with dependancy errors. I've also tried 'yum install opera' and again it seems to download stuff and ends with a crash.

Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. The english speaking forum over there is very small at the present.

I received Kubuntu Free shipit pack yesterday afternoon. Today morning i tried LIVE
version of Kubuntu LTS 6.06 . Hmm ....Good KDE interface but in LIVE environment not
giving much option's like Games or other. Rest is good in it. Good thing in Linux is
it's Open Source, use it by the way you like it..Hehe There are always positive and
negetive points in all OS. We can't blame those developer's. Anyway, now Linux OS's are
more plug n play and it's a good thing for newbies and for home user's. Altight,

Regard's,

yeah I might have to try it,

I'm a real Distro Freak, I have like 60 now... I tried Korazza (spelling?) liked it alot, though It was two underfurnished for my liking. aslo Zenwalk Live Didn't impress me much plain, bland and kept freezing, wouldn't detect certain H/W on bootup etc

So it is PCLinuxOS for me all the way

Help me install berry

I just "discovered" berry today. It looks like some of you have successfully installed berry... on the hard drive I presume. Can someone please provide me instructions? I could not really follow the instructions on berry's website. Thanks in advance.

I think they may have trouble translating to english sometimes.

When you are booted into the berry livecd, click on the apple icon ( lower left ) and go to
BERRY / Berry Linux Installer
enter the root password which is root
1. Configure Installation
Choose the partition ....

2. Start Installation ....


Note: The network settings will likely need changing as he has it setup for his network. This is done as root user in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 .
Also, /etc/sysconfig/network .
Normally, a person would use system-config-network but, that isn't installed for some reason.
