There are several efforts to create Live CDs of GNUstep

GNUSTEP Live CD

of Gürkan Sengün, Version 1.0 released on November 6, 2006

Bugs

  • Some Apps can't be started from GWorkspace, instead openapp <MyApplication> is required -- Which?
  • Some windows (for instance in DBModeler.app) can't be accessed since the title bar is offscreen (a seasoned gnustepper knows how to fix this but what about the newbees?)
  • Some menus behave oddly

  • Sometimes a PS/2 mouse isn't recognized (differs from boot time to boot time on the same hardware)
