 * [[http://ubuntulinux.org/|Ubuntu]] uses a customised version of the DebianInstaller for their installation CD. Their WikiPedia:LiveCd uses DebianInstaller as part of its boot process (details?). Their changes to the installer are available from arch, see [[http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2005/07/msg00757.html|this mail]] for details. Apparently newer versions of Ubuntu will not use d-i as much as previously.  * [[http://www.ubuntu.com/|Ubuntu]] uses a customised version of the DebianInstaller for their installation CD. Their WikiPedia:LiveCd used to use DebianInstaller as part of its boot process, although nowadays uses an initramfs-based boot process instead (Debian's live-initramfs package was derived from this). Their changes to the installer are available via [[http://bazaar-vcs.org/|bzr]]; see [[http://wiki.ubuntu.com/InstallerDevelopment|this wiki page]] for details. Their LiveCd uses a custom graphical installer (Ubiquity) with d-i as a backend for many operations.

This is a page for tracking how DebianInstaller is being used by third parties in custom images and other distributions.

  • Kenshi Muto maintains ISO images for Lenny, Etch and Sarge that use the newest 2.6.* kernel for i386 and amd64. http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/

  • BOSS GNU/Linux is an Indian Version of Linux developed at C-DAC,Chennai,India.BOSS acronym for Bharath Operating System Solutions provides Indian language support and additional features such as ?BossBulkDocument Converter, Boss Presentation Tool, SCIM, Plug-n-Play device support,Automounting of all existing operating systems,BharateeyaaOO for OpenOffice with multiple Indian language support.BOSS is LSB 3.1 certified by FSG.BOSS uses d-i and the team found it really flexible enough to work with.BOSS Team will be proud to contribute to d-i and debian community as a whole.BOSS cds can be downloaded from http://bosslinux.in/BOSS/BOSS-Tarang/

  • Skolelinux is a woody-based Debian derivative that was the first distribution to ship with the DebianInstaller. The installer images are not actually modified for Skolelinux, only a couple more udebs are added to the CD. Debian-Edu is the sarge-based update to skolelinux which also used the DebianInstaller. The source to the added udebs is in their svn repository at svn://svn.debian.org/debian-edu/trunk/src/debian-edu-install

  • Ubuntu uses a customised version of the DebianInstaller for their installation CD. Their LiveCd used to use DebianInstaller as part of its boot process, although nowadays uses an initramfs-based boot process instead (Debian's live-initramfs package was derived from this). Their changes to the installer are available via bzr; see this wiki page for details. Their ?LiveCd uses a custom graphical installer (Ubiquity) with d-i as a backend for many operations.

  • DCC Alliance uses d-i as the installer for their Debian-based distribution. It is not apparently changed much as of ?PR1 except the addition of a newer kernel.

  • Dick Visser has produced sarge ISO images that support the Areca SATA controller. http://www.tienhuis.nl/areca/

  • LliureX 5.09 uses d-i as their installer. It is modified to use a special Catalan locale and translations are added. Details

  • Sun Wah's distribution uses a graphical installer derived from d-i. These changes are in a subversion repository (where?) but have not been contributed back to the d-i developers.

  • Ebox uses d-i as the installer on their CD.

  • Freegeek made a customized d-i image called the Freekbox3,generated using Simple-CDD.

  • Hiweed-Debian GNU/Linux is a Chinese distribution that apparently uses d-i's graphical installer.

  • Takeshi Yaegashi has created a version of the installer for the PlayStation 3. There is a wiki with details, and a diff against standard d-i here. This will hopefully be merged back into stock d-i.

  • Say GoodBye To Microsoft is a web site developed by Robert Millan that automates the process of downloading d-i and booting into it from windows.

  • DPHYS3 (Debian Powered Hosts Yet Simple, Version 3) is how the Department of Physics at the ETH Zurich deploys their over 150 Debian workstations automatically via netboot using a preseeded d-i.

  • Lihuen GNU/Linux is an argentinian Debian Lenny-based distribution developed at the LINTI by students of the National University of La Plata, focused on education and low-level users. It adapted d-i giving it a new graphic theme and using preseeding to avoid localization options and low-level matters. Then it used debian-cd to create the ISO images.

If you have produced a customised image based on the DebianInstaller, please add it here. DebianInstaller/Modify, DebianInstaller/Build, DebianCustomCD, and DebianInstaller/Preseed are useful resources.
