What is miniSUSE?
miniSUSE is an openSUSE based distribution made with SUSE Studio. It comes with all the great packages you might need in a ready to use Linux distribution. It offers you a Swiss army knife for all your Linux needs – still it is small enough to fit a CD/DVD or USB drive. You can use it to rescue systems, format drives, check sensors or hack whatever you want. If you are looking for a small, but extremely useful Linux distribution you can get up and running in seconds from the media of your choice, look no further, check out miniSUSE.
miniSUSE is currently abandoned
I abandoned miniSUSE and I am not putting much effort into updating or maintaining it. I am not happy about that, but I have other priorities. Currently, miniSUSE is based on openSUSE LEAP 42.1 and has two branches:
- miniSUSE: Headless, small edition
- miniSUSE GUI: Like above, but with Xfce GUI
Feel free to open an account at SUSE Studio, and clone the appliance – so you can include custom packages, configurations, patterns or whatever you like! Also, feel free to contact me and send your ideas, questions or any type of feedback!
