Directly from our Server dept., four new Sabayon 7 releases have seen the light!
These releases all go under the "Core" umbrella: they are not meant for beginners, hence the name.
- SpinBase is a very minimal environment that can be used for many different purposes: didactical, home server deployment, but even for custom Sabayon ISO images creation, using our tool called Molecule). Any Sabayon release we make is based on SpinBase.
- CoreCDX instead, is geared towards very minimal graphical environment setup, no fancy tools, browsers, whatever, just Fluxbox and command-line. You set the rule.
- ServerBase is very similar to SpinBase, but powered by a server-optimized Linux kernel (package: sys-kernel/linux-server)
- OpenVZ is our official OpenVZ template.
All of them have a smaller footprint making them fit into a single CD, or USB memory sticks.
SpinBase and ServerBase are provided with a very minimal Anaconda Installer and CoreCDX should be preferred for non-standard filesystem/partition layouts.
- Representing the Sabayon Base System from where all the Sabayon releases are built on
- Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive
- Shipped with Linux Kernel 3.0
- ext4 filesystem as default, btrfs, encrypted filesystem support
- Installable in less than 5 minutes
- Completely customizable system after install, thanks to Entropy package sets it's possible to install GNOME, KDE, XFCE, E17 or anything else in no time.
- Entropy and Portage ready (giving access to thousands of installable packages)
- Providing extra Server-optimized, OpenVZ-enabled, Vserver-enabled kernels in repositories
- This is part of the Sabayon 7 release series, see this Press Release as well
