|Get your single CD for installing or trying it out as a live CD. A live CD does not install on the machine unless you choose to do so, as a result you can try it before you install it. To have a reasonable install we suggest about 5GB of space should be made available.
To create gNewSense we needed to produce a set of scripts. We called this building method Builder and these scripts allow anyone to build their own distribution. Try it here: [[Builder/HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution|create a GNU/Linux Distribution]]. This is not how you get gNewSense, for that follow the download link above, but you can do this if you want to see how we did it.

|Our LiveCDs mean that you can try out gNewSense off a CD without installing it on your hard drive. To install once the LiveCD is booted, make sure you have 5GB of disk space free, and click on the Install icon.|

|Tell us if it works with your hardware: [[Recommended Hardware]]||gNewSense is produced using a series of scripts called Builder. See our [[Builder/HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution|howto]] if you would like to create your own GNU/Linux distribution. If you just want to try out gNewSense, download a [[http://cdimage.gnewsense.org/|LiveCD]].|

There have been yet more Builder/gNewSense updates. The update process was automated a week ago, and this process now has two levels of monitoring. We're also now monitoring mirror freshness.

There are now -backports and -updates components. I haven't tried them out fully. There's also a number of general updates.
