Live CD / Virtual appliance
This page is going to be obsoleted by Kameleon
How it is made
make-debian-live-cd.sh in the root directory of the svn oar repository is available to quickly make a live system iso image from freshly built packages. For the moment, it makes a Debian system using a base image (automaticaly downloaded from the oar website) and the debian packages found in your
./build-area directory. But it's an idea of what should be a smarter script making a live image of the system of your choice with deb, rpm or source installs.
The tool used is "Linux Live Scripts": http://www.linux-live.org/
Note: now, we have a
make-centos-live-cd.sh script for a CENTOS appliance!

The currently published image
It's a Debian system with all oar 2.4 packages installed and some fake resources preconfigured so that you can directly test oarsub. The 2.4 is not yet released, but it's not far from the stable 2.3 release and it has the new user RESTful API that you can test with this live system.
And now, a Centos system is available! --Bzizou 14:56, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
How to run it
It's an iso image, so you can burn it on a CD and boot a computer on it. But the most convenient way is probably to boot it with your favourite virtualisation software. Here is an example of how to start it with KVM:
kvm -m 512 -boot d -cdrom /var/tmp/OAR_Debian_Live-2.4.0-1\~12.gbpbb7070.iso
If you want to keep persistent modifications, it is possible with the 'changes=...' boot parameter. Go to Linux Live Scripts web site for more informations.
