I'm a long-time Slackware user, and I'd like to fiddle with LFS for fun & some experimenting. I remember having installed LFS successfully in 2006 or 2007, I think. At the time, there was a nice LiveCD which provided a sane environment as well as all the sources, if my memory serves me right.
I want to add some drivers to the CentOS LiveCD. These drivers are not present on out of the box CentOS LiveCD.
So Once I add the the new drivers to the LiveCD, and then boot up the server with the LiveCD then I am hoping that it will recognize the new hardware.
I have been googling around this but haven't found a process by which I could add the drivers to a CentOS LiveCD.
I've noticed when booting up Ubuntu 13.10 – Desktop X86-64 disc in "Try Without Installing" mode that Gparted is pre-installed, however if you install Ubuntu to your hard drive the package is removed (or purged? not sure which) during the installation process.
