Tomorrow an updated version will be available. It also has a few more things and a few less also.
Added : a few gstreamer packages, so that most of the multimedia can be available at once.
Removed : all office apps such as Abiword, Gnumeric, and their main depends
Replaced : Geany by Leafpad.
Added : prelink, but in the Live only. I added a "rpm -e prelink" in the post-install section of rc.sysinit : it seems to me that in current use, it tends to make the hard drive a bit noisy during some time... when the prelinking is refreshed.
Files : I have let the Gcompris configuration files in the home of the user, and copied them in the /etc/skel directory as well, otherwise it takes a long, long, time to start. This is also the reason why I installed prelink for the Live versions.
This new version will need to be tested, I tried it, but in Virtualbox only, and didn't have time to even finish the test with an install. The day has been short. I would say, once burned into a CD, it looks like the prelinking makes Gcompris start really faster. It has been tested with the French version, which I think is even more slow to start in a Live than the English one.
It does need testing... as well as the multimedia part : what are the files that play well ? that don't play ? ...
I will be back as soon as the upload will have been finished.
A new version to be tested is online. It has prelink with configuration done especially to boost the launch of Gcompris in the Live CD. Explanations are at this post and the following:http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,100316.msg854399.html#msg854399
