Version: 0.1grml-small is a bootable CD (Live-CD) based on Knoppix and Debian. grml-small includes a collection of GNU/Linux software for system administrators and provides automatic hardware detection.
Operating System: Linux
Whereas grml (without the -small) provides more than about 2.1GiB of software on a 700MB-ISO, grml-small is a very small rescue system for systemadministrators.
It is not necessary to install anything to a harddisk, you don't even need a harddisk to run it. Due to on-the-fly decompression grml-small includes about 150 MB of software and still fits on a business card CD-ROM or USB device with 50MB.
Initial release of grml-small, a very small version of the grml-system. Notice that there are several hacks to reduce the ISO-size, so you won't find for example documentation and manpages on the ISO.
grml-small provides support for booting via USB, see http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=usb for details.
Kernel is based on vanilla kernel 2.6.12 including several patches (MPPC/MPPE, Reiser4, Squashfs,...) but compared with the normal grml system the kernel features have been reduced. See http://grml.org/kernel/ for more details.
