Did you ever dreamed of you own distribution, I know some of you did like me.
Now this becomes easily accessible to everybody with some knowledge what he wants.
Returning to theme of the article while searching for opensuse 11.2 and kde 3.5 I found worth trying one of novel services: http://susestudio.com
So gathering information from around the web and my previous trials of this configuration I did added plenty of repositories, my favorite packages to my new appliance … after some tries I was able to finally build my distribution, that’s quite orginall that I could build whole distro without using anything else then my browser.
But guess how I was surprised when under my fresh build distro I found link testdrive – I dont need anything then browser not only to create an distro, I can also test it within browser.
Ofcourse there are limitations of this site:
- max 15GB can be stored
- builds older then 7 days are automatically deleted
- single testdrive can be maximally run for one hour
Does any of this limitations concern anybody? It is always possible to recreate deleted appliance, you can always launch new session of testdrive to get another hour, and 15GB – it’s a free of charge service
You can always download kiwi configuration and use it to build the distro on your machine.
Just to make it more real here is screenshot from my browser:
I’m really excited to test my new diostro on my new laptop tomorrow, probably I will write something more on it :)
