Welcome to the Arramagong Live DVD

Arramagong is a self-contained live DVD, based on XUbuntu 9.04, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. This DVD is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around.

This live DVD provides effective tools for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and standard software products, including Apache Web Server, Apache Tomcat Application Server, Sun Java, PostgreSQL and PGAdmin.

You can use the DVD without the need to install anything. Simply reboot your machine with the DVD in the tray. During the boot process you will first be asked to choose your preferred language. In the boot menu selection choose "live", or wait 10 secs for the automatic select. The DVD will then start Linux and you will be able to trial all the applications and services directly from the DVD.

Application passwords are in the passwords.txt file on the desktop.

Most of the Live DVD applications can be installed on Apple OSX and Microsoft Windows as well. Arramagong comes with Macintosh Leopard/Snow Leopard and Windows XP/Vista installers for these applications in the WindowsInstallers and MacInstallers folders of the DVD.
