KIWI

Introduction

The openSUSE KIWI Image System provides a complete operating system image solution for Linux supported hardware platforms as well as for virtualization systems like Xen, VMware, etc. The KIWI architecture was designed as a two level system. The first stage, based on a valid software package source, creates a so called unpacked image according to the provided image description. The second stage creates from a required unpacked image an operating system image. The result of the second stage is called a packed image or short an image.
