  • Alternative Installer
    ShalokShalom on Sat, 13 Dec 2014 10:46:45 +0000

    Hi there ;)

    I read somewhere, that the ROSA and OpenMandriva Team aim to develop a new and shiny Installer.

    There is a distribution independent installer framework, called Calamares, which is already so good as usable.
    It support UEFI (in KaOS), locales, automatic partitioning and it might be possible, to add OpenLMI Support to it.

    Modules can get written in C++ and/or Python.

    Calamares use Qt 5 and Kevin Kofler from Fedora already add and maintain the support for rpm5 packages.

    KaOS, both Netrunner Versions (Kubuntu and Manjaro), Manjaro itself, BBQLinux and MauiOS
    aim to use it asap as there default Installer, others like Chakra are interested into it.

    You can see it in action on this KaOS (plasma 5) test iso:
