Live Images

Live Images are excellent to give software a try without having to install and configure it on a computer. Kraft Live Images can be downloaded and pushed on a bootable media such as an USB-stick or a CDROM-Drive. The boot program is included in Kraft Live Image. Furthermore the images can be run on a virtualization software such as Virtual Box or VMWare.

The live system is based on openSUSE distribution showing the current version of Kraft. Everything is preconfigured including a set of example data. It should give you an encouraged view on Krafts power and ease of use.

The images can be downloaded from Kraft's SUSE Gallery Page.

Note: Running a live image will not modify any data on your computer storages!

Build from Source

The source of the latest stable version of Kraft can be downloaded from the Sourceforge File Releases page.

Kraft is part of the KDE playground repository and can be checked out and compiled from there. Read the instructions how to do that. Further details can be found in the file INSTALL. Please read it carefully.
