Installer development

From SprezzOSWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The SprezzOS installer is based on the Debian installer (d-i), and understanding that system is essential in order to work on the SprezzOS installer.

Major divergences from d-i include:

  • Use of Growlight rather than partman for disk preparation
  • Use of GRUB to boot the install media rather than syslinux, and UEFI support
  • Execution of the main-menu process within a fbterm, and deprecation of the graphical installer
  • Inclusion of certain udebs, including a firmware collection
  • Inclusion of numerous diagnostic tools
