README sposkpat - Single Purpose Operating System Kpatience Instructions: 1. Burn the image sposkpat-xxx.iso to CD/DVD, or write (not copy) the image sposkpat-xxx.iso to a USB-device as follows: Linux: ------ dd if=sposkpat-xxx.iso of=/dev/sdx where sdx is your USB device, be careful with dd, be very sure about the /dev/sdx. You can find the right device name by looking in dmesg's output after plugging in the stick, or better yet, ls -l /dev/disk/by-id dd can destroy the contents and partitions of your main disks when used with the wrong letter for x. Your whole USB-device will be overwritten. Windows: -------- https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ (not tested) [http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/coreutils.htm has dd for Windows (not tested)] 2. Reboot. 3. Set your BIOS to boot from CD or USB. (At startup press F10 or del in most cases to get into the BIOS). 4. Savely ignore all bootmessages, and be a little patient. The game will start automatically. -------- To give sposkpat a try you can run it inside a virtual machine, qemu tested: /usr/bin/qemu -monitor stdio -vga std -m 758 -no-fd-bootchk -no-acpi -boot d -net none -serial none -parallel none -name "sposkpat" -cdrom /home/sposkpat/sposkpat-xxx.iso even inside qemu on Windows and Q on the Mac (not tested). Press Ctrl + Alt to release mouse again to get out of qemu. VMware also works (tested on the Mac). -------- Description Distractionless Patience card game (a.k.a. klondike, solitaire, пасьянс, त्यागी, kesabaran, türelem, ẩn sỉ, ソリティア, 接龍, سوليتير). Keeps other things out of your way (not even a clock included). 1. No logins, no passwords. 2. Hard disks are put to sleep (less noise, saving power). 3. Runs completely in RAM. 4. Shutdown by power-button is safe anytime. 5. No internet connection. 6. No virus-risks. 7. The distractional menu's don't work. ---- Note 1: Playing solitaire games helps you to greatly improve your attention span and enhance the ability to concentrate. Note 2: You can even boot sposkpat on a virus-infected machine (not inside a virtuel machine). ---- Based on KDE's kpat. Build on Linux Debian/GNU 6.0 with live-build. ---- Free. Use at your own risk. Have fun. No guarantees. GPL'ed ---- MD5sums: f6a5b1d15a69cfa9b6990f92416a6bf2 sposkpat-netboot-1.05.tar.gz e943eeab1815dec5221e21f6c896553d sposkpat-1.05.iso ----
