Subject: sabotage linux i386 image released

I uploaded an i386 image file of my latest sabotage build from

it comes with about 200 packages. X11 is installed, but for some reason 
the startx scripts seems to have trouble to cooperate with the busybox 
hostname tool.

the base system itself can be considered quite stable and moderately 
well tested at the moment.
there are likely some security patches missing, but the kernel used is 
grsec patched.
so if you intend to use gdb you may have to override some ptrace 
settings using paxctl.
(or build your own kernel with grsec disabled, see /src/pkg/kernel)

root password is sabotage

dont forget to read README in github repo

Image files are available at

ca 150 MB

sha512 checksum 

unpack using xzcat (extracts to a 4GB imagefile)

launch using qemu-system-x86_64 imagefile

or alternatively convert to virtualbox format using

VBoxManage convertfromraw $IMG $VDI

if you use virtual box, you may have to change /bin/X to use different 
device ids (currently commented out)

you can also loopmount the image and copy the rootfs from there

there's also a rootfs for armv7l/softfp available. kernel is not 
included, because the kernel has to be carefully adapted to each 
specific ARM device its intended to run on.
