Is there an Official Live DVD for X5000?

I am kind of lost with all the versions.

I am a new X5000 owner and would not mind installing linux on a 2nd HDD once I get a SATA card for my X5K to add more SATA ports.

Want to leave my X5K Amiga OS HDD alone.

Is there an official X5K Live DVD for us now? One that boots and installs linux on a spare HDD?

What version would this be and where can I download the ISO.

Thanks

TJ

Hi TJ,

Congratulations to your new X5000. :-) You can boot and use ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS PowerPC from a USB flash drive. Please look in the following thread:

ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS Live USB

You can install it from the USB flash drive to your second hard disk as well.

If you have any questions about the Live USB distribution, please post them in the thread above.

Have a lot of fun with your new X5000!

Cheers,
Christian
