Missing a KDE live distro have burnt more than a handful of disks with promising KDE live distros. As Brasero still tends to create the ocassional coaster out of a CD/DVD, have to resort to an old Chakra distro for K3B every time Excepting for BBQ, which could be loaded into ram (but no 'out of box' network connection), all the others either took an eternity or crashed during the boot process. Managed to boot three or four from HD, but then 'unionfs' took up almost all memory (activated swap to get a peek at X), or crashed due to nvidia card requiring legacy driver, and not latest nvidia driver provided by distro. Porteus had exactly the required nvidia 304.xx driver, so the build seemed very promising. Unfortunately a conflict with X org resulted in text mode. As a last resort tried the 'open' driver and unexpectedly everything worked 'out of the box'. (Up to a point, but past the point of expectation ) Able to boot from HD and run in ram time
Having trawled FAQ, tips, tuts, and tried forum searches, would appreciate answers to two rather naive questions:
- A recommended way of getting Java up and running for Firefox and Opera
- Installing JRE, or is something else required here?
- Plugin presumably Iced Tea, also working for Opera?
- Would like to have VLC, and how best to get VLC plugin for Firefox, if one exists in this distro?
