Elive (Enlightenment live) – a lightweight, live GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian and featuring the Enlightenment window manager.
The distribution can be used as a live CD/USB using separated live images or can be installed on a hard drive. Up to version 2.0 “Topaz”, Elive was available as a free live iso image, but installation module had to be bought.

Administration of Elive can be managed via its custom application called ‘Elpanel’, which was developed especially for Elive.
New packages and updates can be managed via Synaptic Package Manager and the text based APT tool.

Elive was under development between 2005 and 2010, when the project has been dropped.
The first two versions of Elive 0.1 and 0.2 were based on Knoppix.
The 3rd one was changed to Morphix as its base system.
Starting from Elive 0.4, the system has been moved to Debian.
The last stable version of Elive 2.0 was released in March 2010.

After 3 years of break, the developers started the project again.
The current version 2.6.x is still in beta stage.

Elive is available for i386 CPU based (or newer) machines.
