Zenwalk Live 5.0 is ready! Based on the 'Current' repository, the new Zenwalk Live features all the latest secure & stable versions of Zenwalk 5.0 standard packages.

With this release, it is also our great pleasure to present Zen Installer which will enable you to install a standard Zenwalk system onto your computer's hard drive. You will, of course, find Zen Installer along with all other native Zenwalk system configuration tools under Menu -> System -> Zenpanel (Root password is: ZenLive).

Now, if you first use Live Clone to remaster your own LiveCD & then execute Zen Installer from that remastered LiveCD, it is interesting to note that in that case, you will install your own customized version of Zenwalk rather than the Standard version. This is very helpful if you need to deploy a highly personalized Zenwalk System on the computer park of a school, a cybercafé, an office or an organization. (From a Zenwalk Live cession, yous simply have to personalize your desktop graphic environment as well as suppress and/or add some new programs, and then click a couple times in Live Clone, in order to create a LiveCD that will be a perfect clone of your modified cession.)

As always, Zenwalk Live 5.0 offers extended multilingual, Multimedia & Wifi support. Simply execute Wicd network manager from Menu -> Network, in order to configure eventual passwords & connect yourself to any available wavelan.

Downloading now; Hoping this fixes the hard drive naming error which effectively forced me to Debian. Still excellent work though. Congratulations.

It would be good to have Live Cd feature to be included into the Installation Cd itself, some thing like Ubuntu Cd's. This will avoid downloading 800MB files.

Akuna, please pass my compliments to the chef! l!!! My tests thus far show another winner for a LiveCD. Some things I missed, but with the ability to add, then create a custom Live, it's easily accomplished. There should be loads of high praise around the net for this one, as there should be no others to compare!

Thanks for all the hard work and I think I can safely say it will be a great success! \!D/

Thanks energiya, it's fixed now.

BTW here is a torrent: http://torrent.trunat.fr/torrents/zenwa ... so.torrent

And thank you everyone for your encouraging words...

The testing team on the LiveCD part of the forum gets a great share of the credits.
The Doc team did a great job (in a short time) as well.

;)

Great news, ZenLive can be installed on system. I love it.

@Akuna

Is it possible to place Zen Installer as a desktop icon instead navigating to those menus? Many times neboos will be wondering how to install.

Also whats the need for password to launch Zen installer?
