Void Linux on Oracle Cloud Free Tier
I’ve recently noticed that Oracle (yes, oracle) offers a pretty nice ‘Always Free Tier’ cloud offering.
Unfortunately, only Oracle Linux and Ubuntu are available, which is not really what i want.
So i went ahead and wrote a small script which ’takes over’ an existing ubuntu installation: takeover.sh.
Using the script is rather simple:
- First, create a new ubuntu minimal instance
- SCP the script to
- Login to the ubuntu host and (as root) execute
sh /tmp/takeover.sh, then wait.
Note: You likely want to modify the script to use a different root password and create a different user (with different keys ;-) )
