The Switch to Grml

I have been thinking for a while about switching from Slitaz as the base OS used for many of my PXE booting tools. Slitaz is great for this and makes it really easy to build the tools that I have made, but it has been over a year since the last major update has been released. Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to be looking into moving to Grml as the new base OS.

Positives:

  • Debian based
    • More packages available
  • Updated more regularly

Negatives:
  • Going to take a bit of time and work to re-do the code
    • (Though this is a blessing in disguise as it will give me the opportunity to better document the builds)


Please comment if you have had any experience with Grml. :)
