RESILIENT LINUX v2
Resilient Linux is a desktop operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux which features a liveng partitioning scheme, https://liveng.readthedocs.io, originally thought for live operating systems. Resilient Linux, however, is hard drive installable: the liveng compliancy (programs and kernel updates with a readonly system partition) is thus suitable for "indestructible" hard drive installations. Moreover, the persistence partition's rw folder contains the diffs from the stock installation: system backups and snapshots are performed by just copying the rw folder.
Here are the instructions on how to build the base ISO image (which contains the installer, reponsible for creating the liveng partitioning scheme upon installation).
How to build the ISO base image
A Debian Buster host is required for the build; other Debian-derived systems may work.
The Resilient Linux ISO image is built using the standard Debian live-build framework, so you first need to install it:
apt install -y live-build
Git clone this project as root.
In order to build a Resilient Linux Buster-based image, open the terminal emulator as root:
cd /path/to/resilientlinux/live-build lb config lb build
A .iso image will be built according to your host architecture (if building on an amd64, a 64bit iso will be produced; an i386 iso will be built on i386 hosts). We only guarantee the 64bit build to work.
