Linux Genealogy Install CD 1.0

Linux Genealogy Install CD
The GRAMPS Project has released the Linux Genealogy Install CD 1.0. This is the companion CD to the Linux Genealogy Live CD (mentioned here a few weeks ago), which allowed you to run Linux and genealogy programs that run under Linux off of a “Live” CD (meaning you didn’t have to install Linux to your computer, you just put the CD in and booted off of it). This CD allows you to install Linux and the genealogy programs previously mentioned. For more information, please read the developer’s blog.

More information from the developers:

In contrast with the Live CD, this disk allows permanent installation of Linux and genealogical software on your computer’s hard drive. This way you achieve adequate speed and the ability to save your data, and can do real work with your Linux software. In particular, it makes a perfect gift for genealogists who want to work on Linux.

This disc contains a complete Ubuntu installer and, in addition to the regular Breezy, features pre-installed GRAMPS, GeneWeb, and LifeLines applications, as well as GraphViz program to draw pretty graphs in GRAMPS. Everything is similar to the Live CD, except that this is a permanent setup.

To download the CD image, please refer to the bottom of this page ( for both ftp/http and Bittorent downloads. The Linux Genealogy Live CD was reviewed a few weeks ago at Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter.
