Hey there fellow Linux enthusiasts,
you need to partition a disk or have to recover data from it but you don't have an operating system installed on your machine. So you grab a pen drive with your favourite Live Distro on it and boot it. But what's that? Gparted, Unison, Syncthing etc. are not installed?
Fear no more! With the help of SUSE Studio I have built a Live ISO that will likely please your needs. In addition to that it's so small that you can burn the ISO to a CD!
I'd love you to check out my ISO over at https://susestudio.com/a/OE1NZ6/hdd-rescue-livecd and leave some feedback here on this forum post. I'll make sure to include your suggestions in my next version.
With that out of the way let's talk about some issues release 1.0.0 has:
- Autologin is not working: I've already added some custom config so that PAM allow lightdm to autologin, but for some reason it's broken
- It's based on OpenSUSE 42.1: For some reason you can only select a 42.1 variant as your base image. That means this iso is using kernel version 4.1. Hence all fixes to BTRFS, EXT4 etc. are not included. (Please don't mount a BTRFS RAID 5/6 using this ISO)
- Welcome screen or similar for newbies: I'd love to include a welcome screen for newbies or at least a website that offers some tutorials on how to do some stuff. But I have yet to customise Firefox for that purpose
If your favourite software package was not included with this ISO feel free to suggest it right here!
