Description Linux Live Distribution, netbook oriented, work well on GMA500 (a.k.a. polsbo, psb) equipped netbooks


  • Settings saved in several different ways (if the boot device is writable):
  • some directories in the $HOME are mounted in the PixieLive3RC1 directory on your pendrive (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Templates, Videos)
  • on demand save settings  (for normal settings, as usual in PixieLive)
  • live changes, for data and settings which change frequently (email {yes we have thunderbird}, dropbox {yes, it saves on your pendrive}, sticky notes, calibre, torrents, calendar {osmo}, wifi networks)
  • encrypted settings (for sensitive data {browsers, email, dropbox settings, pidgin, skype, filezilla, wifi passwords})
  • encrypted storage (~/Private directory encrypted, so you can safely save your sensitive documents on you pendrive)
  • Dropbox (which saves automatically on you pendrive)
  • Thunderbird (which saves automatically on you pendrive)
  • Enlightenment (ultra light desktop environment)

    Cheatcodes (to be specified on the bootloader "blue" screen):

  • fulllive -> disable every kind of persistent changes, nothing will be saved on your pendrive
  • nobind -> doesn't bind mount the data directories from the Pendrive to the $HOME
  • nochanges -> doesn't use the settings saved "on-demand"
  • nolivechanges -> doesn't use the live_changes (settings saved automatically, for email, sticky notes, calendar, dropbox and calibre)
  • encfs -> activate the encryption for sensitive data (changes, live_changes and directory Private), it will ask for a password
  • unsafepasswords -> allow the save-settings script to save unencrypted sensitive data (i.e. even if encfs is not used)
  • noload=packages,list > do not load the specified .lzm modules (e.g. noload=emgd -> do not load emgd-1.16.lzm module, the gma500_gfx kernel module will be used instead)
  • keepxorgconf -> avoid the system to replace the xorg.conf (if you saved it) when you using the emgd driver
  • zram -> enable zram (ram compression system) system
  • X=(no,e17,openbox,gnome,default) -> select the default desktop manager ("no" means X will not be started)
  • Xemgd=1024x768 -> change the default resolution for the emgd driver
