Basically this is a live DVD but you can install this on hard disk with some trick (because officially this does not give you any option to install on hard disk). For this you may need already installed Linux. You may need good graphic card for some games. Following are steps
  • Download ISO file Linux Gaming Live Distribution. Be aware that this file is about 4.2 GB  
  • Make a Linux partition of 5 GB size
  • Either extract the ISO file OR copy DVD to that partition
  • Put a entry in grub
    • GRUB 1, put following 4 lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst file
      • title "Put title of your choise i.e Linux Gaming"
      • root (hdX,Y)
      • kernel /boot/vmlinuz26
      • initrd /boot/lg-live.img
      • Note: above 2nd line 'root (hdX,Y)', X is your hard disk # (it starts from 0) and Y is your partition # (in GRUB 1 it also start from 0) i.e if you are installing in 1st hard disk 3rd partition then it would be 'root (hd0,2)'
    • GRUB 2, It may put entry automatically OR put following 5 lines in /etc/grub.d/40_custom
      • menuentry "Put title of your choise i.e Linux Gaming" {
      •    set root=(hdX,Y)
      •    linux /boot/vmlinuz26
      •    initrd /boot/lg-live.img
      • }
      • Note: above 2nd line 'set root=(hdX,Y)', X is your hard disk # (it starts from 0) and Y is your partition # (but in GRUB 2 it start from 1) i.e if you are installing in 1st hard disk 3rd partition then it would be 'set root=(hd0,3)'
      • Do not forget to update GRUB after editing above file by command 'sudo update-grub'
If this all seems difficult to you, you may Request Linux Installation on Linux IC

    1. This is exactly what I was looking for! However when I tried doing what you said I got a "Waiting for boot device" message and the thing wouldn't boot. Do you have any idea? Thanks!

    2. I have tested this with Linux Gaming Live Distribution Release 0.9.5.

      Right now there is Linux Gaming Live Distribution Release 0.9.6

      I am sorry, I have no idea about this message.

      Later on, I may test Release 0.9.6 and write results here.
