Stephan Rickauer has announced the release of BSDanywhere 4.6, an OpenBSD-based live CD featuring the IceWM window manager: “We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of BSDanywhere 4.6 – OpenBSD at your fingertips. Here’s a quick summary of the changes since 4.5: upgrade base system to OpenBSD 4.6 and packages accordingly; replace Enlightenment desktop (E17) with IceWM, for which we use a slightly adjusted ‘icedesert’ theme including BSDanywhere wallpapers – it starts quicker, is easy to customize and very stable; space we gained by swapping the window manager has been spent on adding the XMMS music player, the Irssi chat client, the XFE file manager, the Mutt email client and the OpenNX client; ddb, the kernel debugger, may now be invoked from the console using CTRL-ALT-ESC…..” Read the rest of the release announcement for more details. Download (MD5): bsdanywhere46-i386.iso (632MB), bsdanywhere46-amd64.iso (700MB).
