We're actually growing


We've had a lot of troubles catching ourselves on the project, but I finally have some good and bad news.

The bad is that gentoo totally dropped unionfs from their genkernel tool.
The good is that I forked it and I've included some extra stuff:
  • Moved to aufs
  • Changes saving is supported from the kernel loading, before the system starts so you can completely customize it.
  • You can create the file from within the boot-up so it's very easy to setup
That's it for the kernel/initrd generation...

People from LSO joined the project, so you can expect a really nice quality emerging from Pentoo, once it will be ready for takeoff.

Rumors, rumors... Zero told me that he's working on our custom 2.6.25 kernel...

If you want to help the project, you can catch us on irc://

That's it for now
