Distribution running on IBM TS7530 Virtualization Engine

Well, I was just a bit curious earlier what distribution might be running on our IBM TS7530 Virtualization engines .. well, I just had a look-see ..

Main difference to a “normal” SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 installation (there’s about zip normal with that kind of installation, thus the quotes) thus far are:

  1. the build for the VE uses busybox as init
  2. IBM stripped man/info
  3. they are running Xorg/Fluxbox on it

Just don’t ask me why there’s a DE (desktop environment) running, it ain’t even hooked up to a monitor. Only reason would be for the RSA’ remote monitor stuff … *lala*

Also, if anyone is interested in a full list of the used devices, that’s here:
