Oneiric update

enhanced ESXi support and more

Quite a long time since my last update but I have a lot of things going on lately so I'm sorry for that.

This update is adding support for 20 distributions :

  • Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot" (Unity/KDE/Xfce/LXDE)
  • Mythbuntu 11.10
  • Edubuntu 11.10 (DVD)
  • Fuduntu 14.11
  • ESXi 5.0 Enhanced support
  • DoudouLinux 1.1
  • Clonezilla Live CD 1.2.10-14
  • SystemRescueCD 2.3.1
  • Sabayon 7 Gnome/KDE/Xfce
  • Lightweight Portable Security 1.2.4 (Deluxe)
  • Citrix XenServer 6.0.0
  • SMS (Superb Mini Server) Live 1.6.2
  • IPFire 2.9 - Core 52
  • OpenSUSE 12.1 Beta1 (Gnome)
  • KNOPPIX 6.7.1

I strongly recommend to download LiLi again and reinstall it for this update because I've made a few changes to the code also.

This is a short changelog :

  • Enhanced support for VMware vSphere ESXi 5.0 (more on that one below)
  • Complete recode of recognition for Ubuntu variants
  • Only netbook users will be able to move the interface using keyboard (this was annoying for other users)
  • For some commercial/proprietary systems you will be able to download ISO from website directly (no mirrors)
  • A few other minor enhancements/bug fixes


About vSphere ESXi 5.0 support


My main job is as a Virtualization/SAN Engineer so this is why I wanted to have an enhanced support for ESXi hypervisor.

Beginning with vSphere 5, you will be able to select between two install modes at boot : Scripted or Interactive.

Plus, Kickstart file has been updated to offer more options and examples (thanks to William Lam and Tuan Duong)

In a nutshell, LiLi is the perfect tool to install ESXi from USB.


I wish you all a pleasant day full of Linux booting through USB :-)
