Hello GAP forum,
The GAP debian packages has been included in the Quantian
live CDROM for PC, see:
This is based on Knoppix and has a lot of mathematical software
like GAP, PARI/GP, and Maxima. It is made by Debian developer
This is a free CD-ROM that let you try Debian GNU/Linux on you computer
without installation by running directly from the CD-ROM drive. You
just need to boot the CD-ROM. The drawback is that it is much slower
This can be useful to make a demonstration of GAP when you don't have
time to install GAP on a computer.
The release 0.4 contains the core GAP system, the groups libraries and
the character tables library (which is now available in Debian/unstable
in the package gap-character-tables).
That still let a lot of GAP missing, but the goal was to have a lot of
different mathematical software. A complete GAP system with all
packages would nearly fill the CD-ROM.
