A lot of new (good) things
an update, a beta and an improved website !
I worked the whole saturday just for you so I hope you will like what I have done.
LiLi 2.7 has been updated to 2.7.7 (I call it "Update 7").
Portable VirtualBox is now using the latest VirtualBox 4.0.8 and is more secure.
A new Beta (2.8 Beta) is available.
Last but not least, I greatly improved the way supported Linux distributions are displayed on the Linux support matrix page.
So as usual this is a list of new Linux distributions supported by LiLi 2.7 Update 7 :
- Fedora 15 "Lovelock" Gnome/KDE/Xfce/LXDE/Design (Please read the note at the bottom of this blogpost)
- Linux Mint 11 "Katya" Main Edition (Gnome) CD/DVD
- Vinux 3.1
- Trisquel 4.5.1 STS "Slaine"
- Pinguy OS 11.04.1
- Parted Magic 6.1
- Gparted Live CD 0.8.1-3
- Clonezilla Live CD 1.2.8-46
- SMS (Superb Mini Server) Live 1.6.0
What ?!! No BackTrack 5 ? Wait, there is more.
I had to rewrite a big part of my code in order to support BackTrack 5. This is why you will need to download the latest beta if you want to be able to create a BackTrack Live USB.
LiLi 2.8 Beta is now supporting a bunch of new linux and I'm proud to say that some are exclusively support by LiLi :
- Backtrack 5 GNOME/KDE
- VMware ESXi 4.1 U1 (including ks.cfg with extended infos)
- SimplyMEPIS 11.0
- AntiX M11
- Meego 1.2 (need some feedbacks ont that one)
- CTKarch and ArchLinux variants
Support for VMware ESXi is exclusive and can be found nowhere else. You will be able to create a scripted install very easily.
The new beta also have a few new features. The biggest one is that you will have better chances of success than with any other Live USB Creator (see Readme file for technical details). I want to thank the Reboot.pro forum users for their help, especially Nuno Brito for creating a dedicated section in his forum.
You can join the community and share with us.
Thanks to Miłosz Szymczak, LiLi is also available in Polish.
What about the website update ? Have a look to the brand new "List of supported Linux" page. Distributions are sorted by name in an easy-to-use menu.
Clicking on a Linux distribution will let you review some details such as : size of ISO, name of file, MD5 hash, release date, direct link to official website, direct download link ... and more coming soon !
Note for Fedora 15 users : Persistence is working but it needs a workaround. Please the Fedora common bugs.
About OpenSUSE 11.4 support, I'm still working on it but it's a real pain in the ass.
