NOTE: all the commands which need root privileges can be used with sudo in the image.
We would very much like to hear from everyone using these images. Please leave us a note on linux-poweredge mailing list or a comment below on how you are using these images and what changes you would like to see in these images.
P.S: the root password is "linux" on the live images.
We end up needing to use the live CD for some more problematic updates for some reason. It works great. Any hope for the 7.40 Q4 with most recent firmwares?
I started working on the 7.4 image, will try to post it in the next few weeks.
Hi Praveen, It works great. Waiting for 7.4. Thanks!
