Ubuntu test install
I am working for a university college in Norway and we need to update our image system. Right now, we are using Ghost, but it is an old version. So we thought we would take a look at FOG.
I am very familiar with Ubuntu and a few other Linux flavors, but I was wondering if there was a ppa (private package repository) for FOG? This makes installation and updates a breeze…
@Oceanwatcher In addition to the previous comments, you can find several guides on installing in the fog wiki.
I work at a school district and we rely heavily on FOG and Ubuntu. We can now push down an Ubuntu image in about 50 seconds which is 10X faster than our previous proprietary imaging software. In my experience, using GIT to install and update FOG is an absolute breeze.
I have a little write up on my use of FOG on my website,
Hopefully that helps some :)
@Oceanwatcher FOG comes with an advanced installer script included. So there’s actually no need for a package. While I understand that installing FOG via a repo would be nice it would be an unbearable effort for us to provide up to date packages for all the different distros we currently support with the home brew installer. Updating (and installing) using the installer script is very easy! Check it out: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Upgrade_to_trunk
