JayOS is a live CD Linux distribution intended for use as a more secure mobile environment. It uses GNU makefiles and Bash shell scripts to automate the building of a complete Linux distribution from source. The result is a turnkey solution for creating a compact, highly-customizable OS. JayOS includes many standard network security and filesystem tools, a full-blown development environment, and many programming tools and libraries including GCC, GDB, DDD, Perl, GTK+, Tcl/Tk, PHP, Ruby, Python, Qt, and Glade. It runs well on commodity hardware, and can be configured to run entirely from memory. In-RAM filesystem encryption with plausible deniability provides a more secure mobile workstation. It is based on Linux From Scratch.
genpuppet is a script to automatically generate a puppet manifest based on a series of user inputs. Think of it as a kernel "make config" for puppet. With genpuppet, the most frequently used resources are prompted for so one can quickly generate a working manifest without having to concentrate on syntax and spacing.
If you are booting from a USB CDROM and the boot fails because the kernel is unable to find the root filesystem, boot using the following arguments:
jayos rootdev=/dev/sr0 usrdev=/dev/sr0
Also, there is a missing directory which prevents wireless networking. Use the following commands until the next release:
cp -av ifconfig.wlan0 ifconfig.ath0
