    Maybe it's just me but I find gcc pretty essential, even on a Live CD.

      I've never actually understood the purpose behind a 64bit livecd... a 64bit CPU can run the 32bit livecd perfectly well, and it isn't like you're going to use it as your primary desktop -- just in emergency situations, where you want to maximize compatibility (i.e. in case you happen to sit behind a machine with a genuine 32bit CPU).

        I think its just you. I can't think of a single reason for gcc on a livecd.

        On an installed system absolutely... can't live without being about to compile hacked kernels, mods, etc., but a livecd?

        Remember that the livecd gives you ssh, so you can use a proper server for compiling stuff and just network it over if needed.

          64bit version is useful if you actually end up installing the live CD to the machine. Live CD installs are very fast and I use it every time I updgrade to the new release. I boot live CD to see if it works with my machine, and if all is well I just install it.

            Errr... To try it out and see if it actualy works? A friend of mine had a 64bit CPU by the time that AMD had just released the first one and Ubuntu 64bit never worked, while 32bit did. Kind of nice to know before you whipe your hdd...

              Yes it is. I'm also not sure where you got the info that it's not on the live cd, I have a fc14 alpha-rc4 installed here and seeing how the installer is only copying the live cd onto the harddrive and gcc is on that...

                Fedora use D1, why?
                • D2 is not stable
                • any free compiler support yet D2 (LDC the best than GDC)
                • standard runtime library tango are working for D2 support

                You can start a project using D1 and later upgrade your code to D2 is a little works.

                All C++ programmer can help ldc project
                All people can help tango for D support (written in D)

                  It looks like systemd will be defered to F15. This was decided at the Meeting FESCO meeting see here.
                  The response of a developer who worked a lot on systemd is also interesting, here.
