Cygwin X live on CD
Wed Dec 1 14:22:00 GMT 2004
I've built a CD-ROM that runs Cygwin X live from CD in a modest Cygwin
environment. It's available at http://xlivecd.indiana.edu/.
Briefly, I was messing around to build Cygwin on a USB flash drive and
posted to the Cygwin mailing list. Fergus pointed out his instructions
for building a Cygwin CD. I realized that we have users who could really
use Cygwin X on CD so I applied Fergus' instructions, made some
modifications, and added a wizard to give the CD the feel of an
application that has the sole purpose of running X. The scripts that I
wrote to make the wizard work are under the GPL.
