Contents of the Live ISO

siduction only provides Debian dfsg-free software on the live-ISO, please check this link for additional information on non-free sources for firmware.

The ISO is completely based on Debian Sid, enriched and stabilised with packages and scripts from siduction. It comes with the latest enhanced siduction kernel, which is based on the most recent Vanilla Mainline Kernel with added patches. ACPI and DMA are enabled by default.

A complete manifest with all installed applications of each of the release variants is included on each download mirror: siduction Mirrors, Downloading and Burning.

    contains a medium set of applications for the KDE4 desktop. Adding more applications to suit your long term requirements is easily done via apt.
  2. KDE 64 bit , live-ISO approximately 1GByte:
    contains a medium set of applications for the KDE4 desktop. Adding more applications to suit your long term requirements is easily done via apt.
  3. XFCE 32 bit, live-ISO with ~ 720MByte:
    contains a fully featured Desktop Environment (not minimal), and has all the applications you need to be productive immediately. It has a smaller footprint than KDE4.
  4. XFCE 64 bit , live-ISO with ~ 720MByte:
    contains a fully featured Desktop Environment (not minimal), and has all the applications you need to be productive immediately. It has a smaller footprint than KDE4.
  5. LXDE 32 bit, live-ISO with ~ 620MByte:
    contains a light Desktop Environment. It has an even smaller footprint than XFCE.
