It's important to keep your driver and software updated.

Live CD recommendation needed

Postby brutus2675 » Fri Aug 12, 2016 5:16 am

I need to test the Linux TBS driver from a live CD environment in order to identify where an intermittent problem is coming from.
This means one in which I can access the kernel source and devel files and compile the drivers before running Kaffeine.

My current problem is that I have MythTV installed. On bootng up it or kaffeine will work as expected but after a few days, Whichever one is running will cease to get any stations and the wireless mouse barely moves across the screen. Reboot and all is well again - for a few days.

As the TBS-6280 card and drivers are fine after a reboot, I'm guessing it might be something in my dstro (Mageia 5).
Hence the idea of booting on a (non-Mageia) live CD and seeing how that pans out.

Thank you but you have missed my point completely.

I want to boot on a live distro, compile and install the the TBS drivers.
Start up kaffeine and see if contact continues indefinitely.

I need to choose the best live distro for this.
