I’m now putting the finishing touches on some Ubuntu Hardy templates for Xen. I’ll be contributing both 32/64 bit templates to jailtime early next week.
I’ve decided that continuing to make these manually each time Ubuntu releases is a pain, so I’m nearly done scripting the whole thing. I’ll release a package with the build scripts + the source / scripts for debootstrap along with the templates.
I’m leaving comments open on this post, hopefully those who have used my previous templates can comment on what packages they would like to have beyond the strapped Ubuntu-minimal. Typically all that I do is install nano, add the updates/security/backports/universe repositories and install locales + the base (EN) language pack.
Are there any other creature comforts that you think should ship in these templates? Let me know
Additionally, I’ll have Xen templates for gNewSense ready next week as well.
