Lubi installs Ubuntu on Linux without a CD or partitioning.
Version: 7.04.04Lubi is a software that installs Ubuntu on Linux without a CD or partitioning. Lubi, the Linux-based Ubuntu Installer, is a graphical user interface and backend that allows installation of Ubuntu Linux-based distros on a loopmounted filesystem (no partitioning required) on modern GNU/Linux distributions, without an installation CD. Lubi functions similarly to Wubi, however, Lubi uses GNU/Linux as the host system instead of Windows.
Operating System: Linux
· This has been tested on Sabayon 3.3 32-bit, PCLinuxOS 2007 32-bit, openSUSE 10.2 32-bit, Gentoo 2007.0 32-bit, Fedora Core 6 32-bit, Debian Sid 32-bit, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy 32-bit, Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32-bit, and Xubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32-bit as the host systems. Kubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32-bit, Xubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32-bit, and Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32-bit were tested as guest systems. Other Linux-based operating systems should work as hosts as well, just make sure you have the packages listed above installed.
