SUSE Studio Create your own Linux build

SUSE Studio ( is a site where you can create your own customized SUSE based Linux operating system very quickly. The entire process took me about an hour to understand and half an hour to create.

To login, all you need to do is use one of your Google / Yahoo / Facebook accounts.

Once you are logged in, you can create an new appliance from existing SUSE templates.

JeOS is the template with minimal packages. I chose GNOME desktop of openSUSE Leap 42.1 as my template.

I gave the name as “sriSUSE” to my appliance (build).

Finally, I created a build by clicking ‘Build’ button. Version was 0.0.1 as it was first. Build Creation takes about 10 minutes.

Once, it is ready it allows for you to test the build in real time as well (Testdrive link). Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 8.55.11 PM
