There are some updates to the kernel source as well as additional kernel modules. Live CD features has also been completed as well. Since Debian Etch has been frozen, we look forward to seeing Voyage 0.3 release around Chinese New Year (mid-late Feb).
The second development milestone for Live CD has been completed. PXE boot environment now supports automatic install of Voyage Linux to wrap, soekris and generic PC.

To test drive Voyage Linux, Live CD provides a faster and easiest way. The Live CD is also installable to hard disk and can be served as a PXE boot server for net-booting Voyage Linux on remote machine. Currently, the Live CD is a 46MB ISO image and contains a whole Voyage Linux distribution! (Thanks to Debian Live, squashfs and aufs).
Visit download page to see all Live CD versions.
See below for instructions on using Live CD.

You can download daily Voyage Linux Live CD at:
It is preferred to use one of our mirror sites for faster download.
The most convenient way to test drive Voyage Linux is running the Live CD on VMWare, VirtualBox or QEMU. Follow the link to download the virtual machine software for Windows.
- VirtualBox download
- VMWare Player download (VMWare Server no longer work after 0.6.2)
- QEMU Manager download
Currently, the Live CD is built daily, so there would be some occasions that the Live CD may break. An official Live CD will be provide at the same time an official release is rolled out.
The Voyage Linux 0.3pre2 preview release is now available in the following location:
The current state of 0.3pre2 is very close to official release. Unfortunately since the delay of etch release , the release date of voyage-0.3 will put back one more month. If Debian etch is lucky, we could have voyage-0.3 around X'mas or New Year time. In the meantime, please start QA 0.3pre2.
The first preview release (voyage-0.3pre1) of Voyage Linux 0.3 is now available in the following location.
The final 0.3 release is scheduled at Dec 2006, shortly after Debian r4.0 (etch) is released. It now requires 128MB CF to install. Please also note that voyage.update is now in usr/local/sbin.
After 9 months of development, Voyage Linux 0.2 is finally released and is available at the below location:
I hope 0.3 release will have a shorter development cycle. It will also switch to another kernel source. It either uses newer debian kernel or 2.6.15 ubuntu kernel. 0.3 may also see the possibility using Debian etch as base since the packages in sarge has been out-of-date quite a lot.
The installation CD of Voyage Linux 0.2 CD is now available in the following location:

Please note that 2.6.15 kernel is now the default. Another highlight in this release is that the root password is "voyage" instead of password prompt in first boot. Hence, please change the root password after your first login. In addition, customization script is now in place, please read README to get some idea.
