This is a quick start guide summarising the steps to download, install and configure Snakeoil OS.

Before We Start

Here are some things you need know:

  • Snakeoil is designed, tested and run on Atom based Mini-ITX motherboards. Other configurations will work but is not tested thoroughly.
  • Only the most popular on-board network cards are supported out of the box. Please refer to this section to install a custom install kernel if your network card is not in this list:
    • Broadcom Tigon3
    • Intel E1000E/E1000
    • Realtek 8169
    • Atheros AR815x/AR816x/AR817x
    • If your network card is not in the list, you might find a install kernel here.
  • Your computer needs to be acquire an IP address from your router (or DHCP server) during the first installation. After Snakeoil OS is installed you can assign a static IP address.

Installation Steps

Follow these steps to install:

  • Download the latest ISO:
