installation media openmamba livecd

What is this?

A live release of openmamba in ISO format so that you can make a CD or DVD (*) from it.
(*) Recently the image size is bigger than space available on a CD so it has to be burnt on a DVD anyway.

Who is it for?

openmamba livecd is the base medium for a minimal installation into a computer. The installation can be completed later through the network.
It is suitable for most kinds of computer usages at home or office, i.e. accessing Internet, producing documents, listening to music and watching movies and it's useful for data recovery on computers where the installed operating system does no longer work.

livecd startup
Insert the CD in the player and restart the computer. On most computers the system should start up automatically but sometimes you have to tell the BIOS to boot from CD. Please see your computer guide or read the startup messages on video for more information on how to boot from CD.

After a 1-3 minutes wait for system startup (times depend on computer hardware features) openmamba desktop interface will be available and ready to use as liveuser user with capability to run privileged commants using the sudo command.
