Voyage Linux Experimental Release based on Debian Lenny


By punkytse - Posted on 04 September 2008

After a long Olympic break, we are pleased to announce a new Voyage Linux experimental release that is now based on Debian Lenny, which is scheduled to roll out in the coming months. On-going development effort is now spent to put a final mark towards Voyage Linux 0.6.

This release is NOT for production use.

This experimental and upcoming VL 0.6 is built by Debian Live framework. Currently, it does not support disk persistency. All changes to the file systems would be lost after reboot. In addition, the Live CD cannot work as PXE server for netboot install. All of these issues will be addressed in the final VL 0.6.

[2008-10-02 update] Both disk persistency and PXE support in Live CD have been resolved. We suggest that users planning to use VL 0.6 should start testing it now, and report any bugs and your feedback.

To recap, most notable changes in VL 0.6 are:

  1. no more /rw and /ro. They are replaced by aufs, for /var/log and /var/tmp
  2. based on (to-be-released) Debian Lenny
  3. 2.6.26 kernel

Regression tests is just started and feature request backlog in wiki is now being processed. Even though Debian Lenny has not been official released, VL 0.6.0 should be ready in the next few weeks and is served as a test drive. VL 0.6.1 is planned at the same time Debian Lenny is release.
