Sabayon Linux CoreCD 5.1 Release

Post by DontPanic » Sun Dec 20, 2009 16:05

Press Release: Sabayon Linux CoreCD 5.1 x86/x86-64

This updated release keeps with the tradition of the CoreCD 4.2 release. The CoreCD is designed with a minimalistic feature set to provide a foundation for building a customized installation tailored to the users specific needs.

As with the previous CoreCD release, CoreCD is a text-based release. There is no X-Server, Gnome, or KDE
provided.
  • Feature list:
  • Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive (~300MB-350MB)
  • 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.

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.

Hi,

We find this version of Sabayon (5.1), to be useful in one of our niche' products. Are there any major performance problems with this version?

This product is two years old now, and long retired.

Sabayon is a rolling distribution. So CoreCD 5.1 itself has not seen any updates.

We have changed our naming conventions somewhat in the meantime.

The SpinBase release more closely resembles the CoreCD release.

We also have a CoreCDX release which has a Graphical Xorg environment added.

We had to make this change when the upstream vendor for our installer stopped supporting a full console-based installer.
