Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-8038) Create a new reusable tinylinux appliance for all hypervisors
Date Sun, 14 Dec 2014 02:12:13 GMT


Nux commented on CLOUDSTACK-8038:


I've built it, it's called Macchinina ("little machine" or "toy car" in Italian) and you can
get it from here:

Can you guys try this out and let me know how it works? Especially the vhd file which I have
not tested at all (the img/raw and qcow2 work ok on KVM + {virtio,SATA,IDE} ).

This is not the final incarnation so don't advertise it yet, Cloudstack specific scripts are
yet to be added, but that should be easy and most of the stuff is there. Login: root / password

Macchinina is basically linux kernel (no initrd, most virt drivers are built-in, let me know
if I forgot any) + busybox + buildroot. All in all less than ~50 MB.

There's SSH baked in, BASH and Python as well as many tools (tcpdump, netcat etc) to aid testing
and so on. All this work is easy to duplicate, the config files are all on github and I'll
also try to wrap up a simple script that build everything so everybody can build their own
if they need.

Updates will follow.

that has the reset password/ssh-public-key scripts for testing purposes. Make this available
for everyone for various hypervisors  - Xen, VMWare, KVM, HyperV, OVM  (LXC).
