– KDE Plasma 5
Sparky MinimalISO is available in two editions:
– MinimalGUI (Openbox) ~ 900 MB ISO
– MinimalCLI (text mode) ~ 500 MB ISO
The live user name is: live
The live user password is: live
The system’s root (admin) user password is empty.
To run the text based installer (called: Sparky (Advanced) Installer) in the CLI edition, do:
1. Log in to the live user account.
2. Re-log in to the root account:
or run the installer as a super user:
If you are connected to the network via wireless (wifi) device only, run the Ceni to configure the connection before running the installer:
Some of wifi devices need an exact kernel module to be loaded before running the Ceni.
Starting with this release, all Sparky iso images are signed with the gpg key.
