Installation guidelines

There are several ways to install a VDR system. Beginning from the manual installation of all parts, to ready to use Live-CDs.

Basically we can differentiate 4 different ways

Installation guideline ("Slow")

+ Learning the internals of Linux
- Time consuming
- Distribution required

Installscript ("Fast")

+ Version independent
- Distribution required

Special VDR distributions ("Faster")

+ Everything balanced out
+ Lean
+ Works out of the box with many systems
- No development system -> minor customisation

Live-CDs ("Lightspeed")

+ Just insert the CD
- Little customisation

This Wiki

Here in this Wiki we try to describe every part of a VDR system and its installation. So this is mainly installation way one, but there are also articles describing the other three ways.
