live cd option

Post by droidus » 2021/02/15 13:47:30

Is there an option to do live cd without install? From the readme.txt files, I see this:
CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveGNOME-2009.iso
CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveKDE-2009.iso
These images are Live images of CentOS Linux 7. Depending on the name they use the
respective display manager. They are designed for testing purposes and
exploring the CentOS Linux 7 environment. They will not modify the content of your
hard disk, unless you choose to install CentOS Linux 7 from within the Live
environment. Please be advised that you can not change the set of installed
packages in this case. This needs to be done within the installed system
using 'yum'.
But I don't see that image in the repo.

Looks like there's no live DVD for 7.9, there is for 7.8:

The LIVE media does not install unless you tell it to, hence the wording "They will not modify the content of your hard disk, unless you choose to install CentOS Linux 7 from within the Live environment".
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
