Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-8038) Create a new reusable tinylinux appliance for all hypervisors
Date Sat, 03 Jan 2015 13:48:35 GMT


Nux commented on CLOUDSTACK-8038:


I was referring to your help with converting vmdk to ova, if it is required.

I can add open-vm-tools (seems like buildroot supports it), but this nearly doubles the size
of the disk requirements..
If we also look into xs-tools and it's python requirements (?) then it will probably get even
less "tiny". Not to mention hyperv.

So I guess the question is, where do we draw the line between size and functionality.

I for one am happy with having paravirt drivers in the kernel, but leave out the "tools",
pretty much as it is now.

Comments welcome.

> Using our systemvm build infra/scripts, create a tiny linux appliance (10-20 MB in size)
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).
