You may have heard from previous keynote talks about BlankOn by Mr. MDAMT. BlankOn is one of the biggest FOSS project in Indonesia. release a GNU/Linux distribution. But, that is not our main goal. non profit project that focuses in educate people about FOSS software development. We embrace young generation in Indonesia to improve their skill. Not only in technical skill such as programming, but also art design, management, and other.
Program that help you install GNU/Linux operating system to your computer. Rote and Suroboyo
Sudah ada yang bagus, ngapain bikin lagi? Kurang kerjaan? Ubuntu&apos;s ubiquity, Redhat&apos;s anaconda, or the origin of BlankOn, Debian. Debian installer.
Because or main goal is ... . Kemandirian bangsa. Gak cuma pakai, tapi bikin. Sederhana dan mudah. Klik klik jadi.
We are using existing open source software like And many more
Four main steps. They are...
This is the common schema
It talks to the libparted library. Libparted is the powerfull library that used by software like Gparted If there is a free space, the installer will create partition layout that has root and swap. If there is an existing swap partition, the installer would detect and use them Libpartednya disuruh-suruh sama kelas vala
The attribute like permission should have a same state as the squashfs.
The password. Login automatically Configure the default desktop manager that will be used. In this case, we are using the manokwari desktop Misc conf like hostname and other
Kira2 apa yang kurang? There is no partition manager. Must manage part by the help of gparted. Love gparted too. Excellent apps. But not efficient if -&gt; Swicth too often between gparted and installer Need integrated partitioning tool.
Mas ceng? We can forget the libparted - tunggu tanggal mainnya Ditungguin sama pemaket -
- quite hard to talk to the libparted. like forum, stackoverflow, and other - pronounce known without “k” - talk instaling operating system, it mean it&apos;s about the user&apos;s data too. We have ... . We have to... The data lost, it is disaster, we wont let it happen - like other open source project, the main issue is we need additional contributors. The current development of the installer is taken by myself plus the help of community. BlankOn installer, it doesnt sounds interesting. But it&apos;s fun. I love hacking this stuff.
Just simulation. In the real application, we are using full screen. So the user should focuses to the installation.

Why reinventing the wheel?

It sounds like Indonesian common nicknames,
“Pak Parto” and “Pak Edi”.
But in fact, it stand for “Partition Editor”
Integrated partitioning tool inside the installer
BlankOn team was planned to shipping BlankOn Installer feat.
PartoEdi in the next upcoming BlankOn Linux release,
BlankOn X Tambora
The most difficult part, at least for me.
Limited unofficial libparted documentation
Needs specialized knowledge about harddisk, partition table,
partition rules, file system etc
Huge responsibility, heavy testing
Developers. Needs more developers.
