For the latest version of supermin, see http://libguestfs.org/download/supermin/
supermin is a tool for building supermin appliances. These are tiny appliances [similar to virtual machines], usually around 100KB in size, which get fully instantiated on-the-fly in a fraction of a second when you need to boot one of them.
Currently we support Fedora and Debian. We hope to support many other distros in future.
supermin 4.x is just an evolution of febootstrap 3.x (really we just
renamed it). The previous
febootstrap program is now
supermin. The previous
febootstrap-supermin-helper program is now
supermin-helper. Apart from that they
are identical, although they will evolve and add features
febootstrap 3.x was a complete rewrite. febootstrap 2.x could only
build Fedora distributions. This version can build many varieties of
Linux distros. 3.x only builds supermin appliances, it does not build
chroots. 3.x does not build cross-distro, cross-release or
cross-architecture systems. If you want febootstrap 2.x, please use
branch from the git repository.
There is a git repository for developers:
git clone git://github.com/libguestfs/supermin.git
