    Post ARtIStX Distro


    I recently came across this distro containing a lot of Multimedia applications and it is devoted to those who needs a linux distro to work in the field of Multimedia.

    I can boot it as a Live CD but I can not access my NTFS drives using it. I do not intend to install it, but it would be great to use the packages fruitfully in the Live CD mode. I could not find much info on it!

    So is there any one who have used/is using this distro? I would appreciate a little help to set it up properly.

    Thank you.

    Sorry... I've never heard of it, but it sounds interesting. If they have a distro specific forum, you might find more information about it there. In the interim, maybe someone that's familiar with it will chime in with some info that will help.

    Yeah, I just took a look around and couldn't find anything, either.

    Documentation seems to be very limited other than that on this page:

    ArtistX - eXtra ordinary art tools - Documentation

    ... but not much help there, either.

    If you get really good with it, you might have to do the documenting of it.

    Thanks ozar

    Well I am quite ready to try it as I have the Live DVD ready to be used but the only problem is it needs to be able to access the NTFS drives!

    Is that possible for a debian based distro to do that without being installed?

    I shall try virtual box, but that will require a lot of time.

    I don't fool with live distros very much so I'm not really sure. I was thinking that Knoppix could do it, though. If Knoppix can do it I don't see why your distro couldn't do it, unless it has something to do with the initial mastering of the CD.

    Are you looking for read access, or write access, or both?

    You have to have ntfs-3g in order to write to NTFS and it's already pre-installed in Knoppix, but I'm not so sure about the distro you are trying to use.

    Thank you ozar

    Well, as Linux distros are open source, is it possible to integrate the full ntfs-3g module with it and make it run in Live CD mode (as in case of Knoppix)? Furthermore, isn't it possible to check whether the distro already contains ntfs-3g built in it?

    I've never used or run it so don't really know anything about how it works, but you might be able to find it on your system with the whereis or which commands by going to a terminal, and then running:

    Code:
    whereis ntfs-3g
    
    OR...
    
    which ntfs-3g
