Well, as far as I understand it, the idea behind the GNUstep Live CD is to
give you a first impression of GNUstep.

Not to dis-honour yours an G├╝rkan's work, but as GNUstep is mainly a development framework, this would include compiling a sample project or two. This pretty much requires a working hard disk.

Wouldn't mounting /home on a RAM disk serve that purpose perfectly well?

I must admit, GNUstep's LiveCD does this already and I have to take back my rant partly. After increasing "physical" memory from 160 MB to 256 MB, things start to work. The CD manages somehow to fit a 754 MB root file system plus 128 MB /tmp ("df -h") plus a running system into this RAM. Better yet, some 160 MB ("free") remain available for caches.

A "Hello World"-type app built and worked.
