Description: "Zenwalk Live 6.4 is ready. I am happy to announce Zenwalk Live 6.4, which will allow more people to discover the speed and simplicity of Zenwalk without having to install it first. It consists of standard Zenwalk ISO packages following the main Zenwalk release, with same set of applications and the latest Xfce desktop. Additional stuff besides the standard package selection include: livekernel with Aufs and Squashfs 3.4 including LZMA compression; scripts and tools that are needed for creating and running the live environment; Ash; a few localizations for Icecat and Icedove; Sazanami fonts and UIM with Anthy as input method to support Japanese language display and input; a unique custom theme for bootsplash and GDM."
Keywords: Live Aufs Squashfs-3.4 Slackware-based

Cons: Some loose ends

The installation proceeded smoothly, but one needs to remember the root password ZenLive and replace it with ones own. No request for a user was made: the system starts with a user called one, which one can rename.

The media player coped with mp3, mpg, and wmv, but not with flv, mp4, or mov.

The package installer works successfully, but has no help, so a certain amount of random left and right clicking was needed to find out how it worked.

This is a great improvement on the last version I tried, which failed to boot with no error messages, but it still has a little way to go.
