On a tour of YALI

The four partitioning methods on YALI.


Partition methods

Disk partitioning schemes on YALI. For the first time, LVM and RAID are supported. LVM is the default partitioning scheme, and only two logical volumes are created. See how to configure LVM on Pardus 2011.

Another first for Pardus is the switch to using the traditional UNIX/Linux mount points.

Boot loader configuration step on YALI. GRUB, the GRand Unufied Bootloader, is the boot loader on Pardus 2011. The GRUB version is 0.97, GRUB Legacy. Though YALI does not have support for setting a GRUB password, it is possible to do that after installation.

I could be wrong, but something in this screenshot tells me that some Anaconda code is behind the new YALI. Can you spot the giveaway sign?
Anaconda inside?

  2. AFAIK, YALI does not based on Anaconda. It was written from scratch such as other Pardus tools.

  3. YALI is not based on Anaconda. The splash screen comes from Plymouth. Since you don’t have KMS, the text plugin is used and that’s a quiet simple plugin. They would change the colors until the final release.

  5. What about LUKS encryption? I would like to choose Pardus for friend’s PC, but only if encryption is supported from the installer.

    • In that case, you will have to wait a little bit longer because YALI does not have support for disk encryption. That really surprised me because Anaconda, the installer it is based on, has support for full disk encryption.
