View Full Version : Aurox Live

Aurox Live is a Fedora-based distribution that uses Knoppix technology for the Live CD portion. I like it because it comes with Nvidia and ATI drivers working straight out of the box. I use it whenever I need a "Red Hat" flavored Linux.

I'm looking here: ftp://ftp.tuwien.ac.at/pub/linux/aurox/install/10.0.1/ and there seem to be 4 different iso files posted. There is no indication of which file is what. There is one md5sum file posted; it lists all 4 of the iso files inside it.

b60e1c1abc502778c35968d03c7ccafa aurox-10.0.1a-1.iso
a6a0f94f57f478e38a3bb1e839e7c96b aurox-10.0.1a-2.iso
572824bf700317bdc0d71f153707da10 aurox-10.0.1a-3.iso
dac80e3d6cd52cec7247e6052a7784bf aurox-10.0.1a-4.iso
But that still gives me no idea why there are 4 different iso's (each a somewhat different size). I don't need 4 CD's for this "Live CD" do I? Or am I looking at a completely wrong thing?

I did some searching on their site and it is a bit confusing to say the least.The "live CD" appears to be hidden but I left no stone unturned and believe I may have found the correct ".iso" at:


...the readme file there seems to verify it.

Had to have a look at this and a confusing website is an understatement IMO.
Seems like the live version is understandably 1 iso and the normal installable aurox is 4 isos.
Going up one level ftp://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/distributions/aurox/ and looking at the directories seems to support this.

Well, mine is on DVD actually and I got it on the cover of a Linux magazine. I have to boot it with the "live" cheatcode. Don't know whether the same applies for the download version as well.
