penguins-eggs is a console utility, in active development, who let you to remaster your system and redistribuite it as iso images or from the lan via PXE remote boot.
The scope of this project is to implement the process of remastering your version of Linux, generate it as ISO image to burn on a CD/DVD or copy to a usb key to boot your system. You can also boot your egg - via remote boot - on your LAN. You can easily install your live system with gui calamares installer or eggs cli installer.
All it is written in pure typescript, so ideally can be used with differents Linux distros. Yes, there are big differences about package manager used, but not so much in the way to work of bash and in the various programs used to build the iso.
penguins-eggs, at the moment 2021 may is a mature tool and is extremely usefull, You can easily create your personal customized iso or your organization/school version of Linux and deploy it on your LAN, give it to your friends as usb key or publish yours eggs in the internet!
Try penguins-eggs, yes it is a console utility - no GUI - but don’t be scared, penguins-eggs is a console command - really very simple - if you are able to open a terminal, you can use it and yours final users will enjoy of full gui and pratical installer to install your livecd.
Starting with version 7.6.x, an addons architecture was added to eggs, allowing third parties to develop extensions. Note that currently we have an extension for the theme that includes both branding calamares, link and installer icon. In addition, also as an addon has been developed choose between GUI or CLI installation, adjust the video resolution, remote support, etc.
From version 8.0.10 You can use the backup mode by simply adding --backup in the produce command. This way eggs will save your users data and accounts and will not add a live user, you will have to log in with the main user of your system with the his password. Note: since eggs always configures autologin, you may have a security risk with valuable data. Use this option only for your personal stuff and do not share the iso on the network.
Starting with eggs 8.0.0 I included a new CLI installer named krill. krill let you to install your system in a nice CLI interface using the same, configuration created by eggs for calamares. This lead to have “about the same” experience installing, from old distros to new one and for GUI and CLI. To force using krill in place of calamares in a GUI system just: sudo eggs install --cli
I’ve added two lightweight assistants integrated with eggs: mom and dad. While mom is a bash script with whiptail - and guides the user to the various commands and documentation, dad started as a short way to create isos. All you have to do is type sudo eggs dad and follow simple instructions. You can also shortcut the way to reset the configuration sudo dad -c or - even faster - reset the configuration, load defaults, kill created isos. Simply type sudo eggs dad -d and you will immediately be able to produce the egg in the default /home/eggs nest.
I suggest to leave the default values unchanged during the development of your remaster. You will be more fast in producing eggs, enjoy of dad after reinstalling eggs. If you need more space, simply mount your big device in /home/eggs.
yolk so called - staying on the subject of eggs - is a local repository included in the livecd that contains a minimum of indispensable packages during installation. Thanks to yolk, you can safely install your system without the need of an active internet connection.
eggs was born on Debian strecth/buster, but actually full support Debian from jessie to sid (bullseye), Devuan beowulf, Ubuntu focal, bionic and derivatives. I actually try it against Debian varius versions, before releases. I tried it successfully in LMDE 4 debbie, and deepin. eggs, generally must work with all the derivates from that distros.
Some examples of iso images remastered with eggs are in the sourceforge page of the project.
From eggs v. 8.0.4 I’m releasing eggs in 4 differents architectures: i386, amd64, arm64 and armel. eggs - at the moment - produce in i386 and amd64, but can be installed already on arm64 and armel. This mean who it is possible to install it in raspberrypi, but again not possible to produce a Raspberry Pi OS egg in armel or arm64. I’m just working now to complete this step.
Note: Of course it is possible to produce iso for Raspberry Pi Desktop amd64 based.
eggs is released as deb package and npm package. Most users need just deb version, if you already use nodejs the npm package can be installed too.
eggs is released deb packages for i386, amd64, armal and arm64 architectures. Due the characteristic of eggs, they can installed in Debian, Devuan or Ubuntu based distros, withouth worries about different versions, except for the architecture. It include standard scripts for preinst, postinst, prerm and postrm.
There are more than a way to install eggs, the most common it’s to use penguins-eggs-ppa.
eggs have it’s repository ppa, You can use it, copy and paste in a terminal window the following two lines
curl -SsL https://pieroproietti.github.io/penguins-eggs-ppa/debian/KEY.gpg | sudo apt-key add - sudo curl -s --compressed -o /etc/apt/sources.list.d/penguins-eggs-ppa.list "https://pieroproietti.github.io/penguins-eggs-ppa/debian/penguins-eggs-ppa.list"
Update your repositories: sudo apt update and install eggs: sudo apt install eggs.
sudo dpkg -i eggs_8.17.3-1_amd64.deb
or, on a i386 system:
sudo dpkg -i eggs_8.17.3-1_i386.deb
If you are using penguins-eggs-ppa You can ugrade eggs as others packages just: sudo apt upgrage.
If you are using not the penguins-eggs-ppa, the fastest way to use sudo eggs update and choose basket. Eggs let you to select the last 4 versions on the basket and install it.
sudo eggs update
Simply download new versions of eggs from sourgeforge page and install it with the standard command sudo dpkg -i eggs_8.17.x-1_amd64.deb.
In addition to the description of the commands in this README, you can consult the Official book. There is also other documentation - mostly for developers - included in the documents and i386 directories of this repository,
