I've added a repository for the Kanotix release based on Debian wheezy, Codename "Dragonfire", and backported KDE4.8 there:
# Kanotix Dragonfire (with KDE4.8-wheezy-backport by acritox) deb http://kanotix.acritox.com/debian dragonfire main kde-backport deb-src http://kanotix.acritox.com/debian dragonfire main kde-backport
Note: I just tried out building an image with some new stuff: live-build 3, wheezy, KDE 4.8, ... - it's not tested and not intended to be actually used or installed, so do not expect any further support or updates for this ISO...
This video (bad quality, shot with mobile-phone) shows two things:
Some MacBooks have Broadcom Wireless which needs unfree firmware to work (which cannot be included by default). Therefore the latest kanotix64-TrialShot Hybrid-ISOs allow you to put a b43-firmware-file onto the FAT-partition of the Stick. Because FAT is also supported by Mac OS X and Windows this is quite easy...
AcritoxInstaller is a Qt4 frontend and a bash backend to install debian-live-LiveCDs like Kanotix.
It is based on acritoxinstaller 0.1, which used Qt3/KDE3 for its frontend, but is completely rewritten.
My idea how to make it really easy for Mac OS X users to create a bootable USB-Stick with a live-system on it:
easy, isn't it? ;-) the next 64bit TrialShot-Image will have this feature included, if you have a Mac you may try it out.
