Sabayon Linux CoreCD 4.2 Release

Post by DontPanic » Sat Jul 25, 2009 0:28

Press Release: Sabayon Linux CoreCD 4.2 x86/x86-64

The Sabayon Linux CoreCD is a new type of release for Sabayon. The CoreCD is designed with a minimalistic feature set to provide a foundation for building a customized installation tailored to the users specific needs.

The CoreCD is a text-based release. There is no X-Server, Gnome, or KDE provided.
  • The Feature list is intentionally short:
  • Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive (~400M)
  • Text-Based installer
  • Basic default networking
  • Entropy and Portage ready
The CoreCD release is targeted to advanced users who want to take full control of the features and packages installed on their system. Sabayon's Entropy package manager can be utilized as soon as the CoreCD release is installed to quickly build out the installation based on the users exact requirements. The CoreCD also has the capability to install packages using the Portage package management system.

For more information, please see the "Visual Tour: CoreCD" on Sabayon's Wiki.

The CoreCD release is also targeted to advanced users who seek to design and publish their own customized Sabayon Linux release using the CoreCD release in combination with Sabayon's Molecule release metatool.

Networking Notes: Advanced user skills may be necessary to implement networking on the CoreCD. The CoreCD can provide simple dhcp networking over wired networks by default. Most advanced networking configurations will require configuration by the user, possibly requiring "chroot-ing" into the CoreCD environment from another Linux environment with working networking.
