Using this ISO image, you can boot a complete Ubuntu system with Gerris pre-installed from a USB memory stick. The distribution also includes various utilities which are useful in association with Gerris: emacs, gnuplot, ffmpeg, meshlab, blender, gmsh etc... The base system is a standard Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS distribution.

This image is built to work on any 32 or 64 bits Intel-compatible system.

To test it you need:

  1. an Intel-compatible machine (or an Intel-compatible virtual machine)
  2. a USB memory stick with 1Gb or more free space

You then need to download the (large, ~850 Mb) ISO image file. Then follow the standard Ubuntu installation instructions (start from step 2).

Note that running the distribution from the USB stick won't modify the operating system already installed on your machine in any way. If you are happy with the system, you can choose to install it permanently on your hard drive (with the option to share it with the other operating system).
