Description Dave Malcolm 2006-12-13 21:52:54 UTC
Live CD autoboots you into a default users' gnome session, so I'm assuming the
intended user is someone taking the software for a test-drive.

If so, I suggest that a welcome page should appear, with some text along these

Welcome to the Fedora Live CD!

This computer is running the Live CD edition of Fedora Core 6 (codenamed "Zod").

You can use this CD to try out the features of Fedora Core 6.  However, since
this is running from the CD rather than your hard drive, it's considerably
slower than a full install of the software.
etc, hopefully worded better than I can manage :-)

Alternatively, this text could be integrated into the "About Fedora"
documentation, and yelp could be autostarted, pointing at this documentation,
and have the "About Fedora" menu item read "About the Fedora Live CD"

It should also spell out that any changes will be lost upon reboot (assuming
that that's the case).

Es para probar  linux

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-13 15:16:09 UTC
We no longer auto-login immediately.  For Fedora 8, we're going to have more
bits set up on the CD so you know what you're getting.
