You can download the livecd from here. md5sum is here

Note: Live CD *may not* start X under some hardware. To solve the problem, edit grub parameters and add "selinux=0" (without quotes).

  • Updated versions of almost all of the packages

Major features

  • PostgreSQL 9.6

  • Option to install image to hard drive
  • Option to add an encrypted home directory while burning the iso to usb stick.
  • Many PostgreSQL related software is preinstalled and ready to run.
  • Improved hardware support, including laptops.


  • Please use postgres as the desktop username.
  • Root password is postgresql, if you need.
  • PostgreSQL and httpd is started on boot, so you will also be able to use phpPgAdmin.
  • pgadmin3 is pre-configured, so you can begin using it quickly.

If you want to create an encrypted home directory on the usb stick, then run:

sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --home-size-mb 1024 /path/to/livecd.iso /dev/theusbstick

How to build your own live CD

Preparing a live CD, based on PGDG RPMS, is easy for CentOS users. We prepared kickstart files, which will do all the work for you. Also, you can install the contents to a disk after boot. You will find an icon on Desktop for that.

You will need to install livecd-tools RPM. After downloading kickstart file, run the following as root :

LANG=C livecd-creator --config=PG95-CentOS7-x86_64.ks (on CentOS)

There are about 700 packages to be downloaded, this build process may take some time, depending on your connection.
