Orange JeOS is pretty cool

So I found a new distro that’s pretty cool….Orange JeOS.  This distro based on the mantra “Just Enough Operating System” and it is a streamlined version of CentOS.   It’s released as a scripted build (not as an ISO) from the site, but being the lazy bastard that I am, I did find a site that performed all the heavy lifting for me. oj_logo They release a few different ISO’s based on your intended hardware.  There’s even a version with a GUI, but that kinda defeats the purpose in my view.  What I wanted this for was to be able to build a small syslog server without a lot of overhead.  I tried the VMWare appliance called SyslogAppliance but the damn thing was like 64GB in size.  So much for an appliance…

Anyhoo, I was able to load the core install on an old Toshiba Salellite Pro 4600 for testing.  From here I downloaded the VMWare version and put it on ESXi.  That took some work because it’s built on VMServer so I had to download the stand alone converter from VMWare and then convert it over.  When I first booted up it failed to mount the disk.  I took a shot in the dark and increased the size of the virtual disk and then it all worked ok.  So far so good.

So if you’re really interested on what’s installed by default…running a “yum list installed” on the base build  (oj-1.8.7-11.iso) yields:
