Post by DontPanic » Tue Apr 20, 2010 20:26

Press Release: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 5.2 CoreCD

The Sabayon Linux CoreCD edition is a minimalistic release designed to provide a foundation for building a customized installation tailored to the users specific needs.

It's smaller footprint allows for installation from a CD, and the CoreCD is also great for USB installations.
  • Features of Sabayon 5.2 CoreCD:
  • Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive (~350MB-400MB)
  • Text-Based installer
  • Basic default networking
  • Entropy and Portage ready (giving access to thousands of installable packages)
  • Based on new GCC 4.4.1 and Glibc 2.10
  • Shipped with Desktop-optimized Linux kernel 2.6.33
  • Providing extra Server-optimized and OpenVZ-enabled kernels in repositories
  • Quick installation
Minimum Requirements:
- an i686-compatible Processor (Intel Pentium II/III, Celeron, AMD Athlon)
- 512Mb RAM
- 2 GB of free space

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.
