Debian Weekly News - E-Mail

From: Marcus Moeller (
Subject: miniwoody announcement

miniwoody ver1.1 has been released. It has been built to offer a Debian based Desktop-OS that fits on a 180MB CD-R(W). The distribution includes the current stable version of KDE 3.1.1 and has been modified for easier installation. f.e. automatic hardware detection can easily be installed during the base-config process to make the X Window Configuration much simpler.

Things that made the Debian installation uncomfortable in some kind of ways have been redesigned to help even users that are completely new to Linux to setup a working Linux Desktop in about 35 minutes. f.e LiLO config can be rewritten on the fly to allow users to select Linux single mode during startup.

miniwoody ISO images can be obtained from here:
