Shortlist of live CDs, DVDs et cetera

… including rescue discs and the like.

The following list arises from discussions in IRC. From this draft we might draw a table to help people who seek a CD, DVD or USB flash drive at short notice – a rescue situation, for example.

(Beyond a draft: I don't imagine a complete set of information moving to the main distributions page. That's a very prominent main page – aim to keep it as tidy as possible for parade purposes.)

Debian GNU/Linux ZFS Rescue Disc

Based on the debian-live rescue image, built with Linux kernel ZFS support from ZFS on Linux. Includes:

  • debian-zfs / zfsonlinux: ZFS metapackage and zfsonlinux repo signing key
  • zfs-dkms: ZFS kernel modules, built
  • grub-pc: GRUB with ZFS patches supporting /boot on ZFS
  • zfs-initramfs: initramfs scripts supporting booting with a ZFS root
  • zfsutils: command-line tools for managing ZFS filesystems.

This disc is also useful for converting an existing installation to ZFS.
