Gluon can run on normal x86 systems, for example virtual machines and VPN boxes. There is no WLAN support on x86 though.
There are two targets for x86 images:
Generic x86 support with many different ethernet drivers; should run on most x86 systems.
There are three images:
- generic (compressed “raw” image, can written to a disk directly or booted with qemu)
- virtualbox (VDI image)
- vmware (VMDK image)
These images only differ in the image file format, the content is the same. Therefore there is only a single x86-generic sysupgrade image instead of three.
Please note that the x86-generic image doesn’t include VirtIO support, so another virtual NIC like pcnet32 must be chosen when using VirtualBox.
- The x86-kvm image uses VirtIO as its harddisk and network driver.
