grml-live is a build system for creating a Grml and Debian based Linux Live system. The build system is based on FAI (Fully Automatic Installation).

Building a Debian based 64bit live system is as simple as running:

# grml-live -s sid -a amd64 -c GRMLBASE,GRML_FULL,AMD64

You can fully customize the build process, including adding additional software and your very own configuration files.

Further information is available from

In case you want to run grml-live directly from the checkout (after making sure all dependencies are installed), you should set GRML_FAI_CONFIG so that it does not use the config files of an installed grml-live package:

# export GRML_FAI_CONFIG=$(pwd)/etc/grml/fai
# export SCRIPTS_DIRECTORY=$(pwd)/scripts
# ./grml-live -s sid -a amd64 -c GRMLBASE,GRML_FULL,AMD64
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
