gear0x

gear0x is, in a nutshell, a bootdisk ready for expansion based on debian and the Linux kernel. Heavily inspired by The Core Project and the sum of my frustration, essentially :) It is menu-driven, but allows you to drop to a comfy' tmux/bash if you ever feel the need.

In it's current state the minimum OS enables you to:

  • Boot various Linux systems
  • Install debian via debootstrap (with optional luks)
  • Rapidly integrate tools using squashfs overlays

Building

git clone https://github.com/hakt0r/gear0x
cd gear0x
sudo sh _build/deps
sudo sh _build/deps.test # for testing
sudo make deps build ramfs test
