An idea to get Linux Mint on CDs again

Postby ClauZelPre » Sat Oct 13, 2012 7:58 pm

I noticed that Linux Mint does not have a CD version of 13 Maya. I was wondering if you guys have ever thought of making an alternate CD like Debian's Net Install CD. If you do that, the iso will be a LOT smaller, and anyone with a 700MB or smaller CD can get Linux Mint.

You can just put the DVD ISO on a USB stick and boot from that: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/744. You can use PLOP boot manager if you have a computer that doesn't natively support booting from USB.

Or you can respin the DVD ISO so that it fits on a CD: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/918
