Calimero's ArchLinux Live.

CTKArch brings together all you can find on this website, you'll be able to see how it looks, and even adopt it ! (it's installable)

It is designed to run on the least powerful PCs (400MHz for instance, with 64MB ram), without sacrificing any functionality in this scope.
On a dual core, it becomes extremely fast.

- Feedback :

I rely on you to tell me what's wrong or missing, either via IRC, canal #archlinux-fr, or by mail, calimeroteknik at free dot fr.

If the graphical interface doesn't start, I'd be happy if you sent me a xorg.conf that works for you, along with the result of the "lspci |grep -i VGA" command !
Likely, if the sound doesn't work directly, tell me which volume in alsamixer you need to unmute/rise up.
