grml-live - first public release Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 16:06
Lots of development took place. New features include support for local mirrors (thanks to Michael Schmitt for providing test infrastructure), new command line options and unified classes. Oh, and you ever wanted to use grub as bootloader instead of isolinux on your grml ISO? Now it's as trivial as setting BOOT_METHOD=grub in /etc/grml/grml-live.conf before running grml-live itself, giving you something like:
grub as bootloader for grml
So what are you waiting for? Grab grml-live, build your very own grml version and send me your feedback, feature requests and bugreports. :-)

grml-live: create your own grml-ISO Posted by Michael Prokop in packages at 21:10
Ever wanted to build your very own grml-ISO without having to deal with all the remastering details? Want to include your very own kernel? Want to change configuration of some files? Then grml-live might be what you ever dreamed of. :)
Check out the grml-live documentation to get an idea what I'm talking about. As you might notice grml-live is based on FAI (Fully Automatic Installation), this will provide us the possibility to deploy grml even faster, better and more customized than we already do (using grml2hd, grml-debootstrap and grml-terminalserver).
Want to get an idea how fast you can build an ISO using grml-live? Check out:
So all I did was invoking 'grml-live'. Not even 7 minutes later I've a working grml live-CD which is based on Debian-stable, providing kernel 2.6.22-grml and all the basic grml features:
Stay tuned for an official release of grml-live. We are working on reducing the todo list - like porting it to other architectures, providing different flavours, some more customisation hooks and finally providing a full-grml-built using grml-live.
