With the many free hours people are likely to have in the coming days I thought this might be a good time to publish an updated release of bubbagen
The new release features kernel 4.4.26 and is patched for Dirty CoW. All packages are synced to the Gentoo tree as of 22 December 2016. There are two images you can choose from:
- Version 1.9.0 uses the well known OpenRC init system, similar to what the original Squeeze based Bubba OS used. The core network configuration is supplied by Gentoo netconf which is very versatile. If you need dialin support (including PPPoE) this is probably the best version for you.
- Version 1.9.5 features the "new" systemd init system. The core network configuration is supplied by Gnome NetworkManager which is less versatile but does the job pretty well. It also comes with a network monitor that allows you to force DHCP renewal by simply removing the network cable for a second or two and then plug it back in. This allows for easy switching between a router supplied DHCP address and the internal configured fallback address 192.168.10.1.
