GNUmed Live CD howto

Trying the Live CD and experiecing GNUmed should be hassle free. Fortunately it is. Independent of what you run on your PC you can run the Live CD without leaving your working environment. Be it any Linux variant, MS Windows or Mac OS X.

I have had success with the free (GPLed) virtualization package by Sun called VirtualBox.

1.) Install Virtualbox on your PC
2.) Create a new guest e.g. Linux/Debian
3.) Connect the Live-CD download (binary.iso) file as a CD-ROM drive for that guest.

4.) Run it and experience GNUmed.

Wiki updated to TWiki 4.2.4

For security reasons I have update our Wiki to the latest release.

To the user this should pose no problems. As a plus a new WYSIWYG editor is
now installed to make contributions even easier.

Please take a look at

GNUmed Live CD updated

A new GNUmed live CD is out. With the help of this CD one can testdrive GNUmed without altering the currently running environment such as operating system. No installation neccessary.

Just download the CD image and either burn it to a CD or set up VirtualBox, Vmware/Vmplayer, QEmu or the likes to accept the CD image as a virtual CD drive.

Just boot the CD in your physical or virtual PC/Mac and testdrive GNUmed.

GNUmed client 0.3.8 is included and configured to connect to either the public GNUmed server via the internet or connect to a GNUmed server included with the CD. No setup needed.

Have fun and please let us know how it works for you.
