A Live DVD is NOT a Live CD , so ... ?


I just tried to check out SuSE 9.3 LiveCD and found that it's only available from the LQ.org page as LiveDVD which is not the same as you may or may not know. So I went for the Live CD link on the LQ.org SuSE 9.3 LiveCD page and went for SuSE 9.3 from the list of LiveCD's and again got the SuSE 9.3 page that has only LiveDVD's, which I don't have on alot of my systems. http://iso.linuxquestions.org/

Can you please make a separate section for LiveDVD now that there are such things or fix the links or make a new section link for LiveDVD and make the SuSE 9.3 page and all other pages like it point to the new one or all of the above?

Thansk.

This is not a reply, but would like to notify that Knoppix 3.9 has been released with Open office 2.0 (beta) and KDE 3.4...the links should be appropriately updated or given direct links to the website without writing the version of the ISO!

There's no section to submit a suggestion to make a separate section for LiveDVD and to move all those LiveDVD
s from their current place of LiveCD to LiveDVD.

Or is there, jeremy?

Does this not count?

So like I forgot this part... those that are don't have a DVD drive will get confused or frustrated because the LiveCD section has some LiveDVD ONLY ISO's and of course those searching with http://www.google.com for LiveDVD won't find the LQ ISO's for LiveDVD when the category is LiveCD, etc.

And having two separate sections will be better in the future as some distro's NEVER go to LiveDVD for whatever reason.

I would hope those that don't have DVD's do know what they are in technical terms and wouldn't create a LiveDVD to try and install onto their CDROM..

I would expect that anyone who burns a liveDVD would then be able to use said burner to read from. Bearing in mind that RTFM is a very popular saying on some sites, I would also hope that anyone who tries to install any OS can read and would know the difference between a CD and a DVD.

Any more spurious questions?
