To easily try the latest version (nightly build) of CLIP OS 5, you may download pre-built packages, SDK and pre-installed QEMU images from files.clip-os.org.
Be aware that those packages and QEMU images are instrumented, which means they allow full root access without any password on the system.
To run the CLIP OS system in a virtual machine, you will have to install QEMU.
It is also strongly recommended to have KVM support enabled for your current

# For Debian & Ubuntu $ sudo apt-get install qemu-system-x86 # For Fedora & CentOS $ sudo dnf install -y qemu-system-x86 # For Arch Linux $ sudo pacman -Syu qemu
Then, you can download and start a CLIP OS QEMU virtual machine with the following commands:
# Pick the latest successful build from https://gitlab.com/CLIPOS/ci/pipelines $ BUILD="$(curl 'https://gitlab.com/api/v4/projects/14752889/pipelines?scope=finished&status=success' | jq '..id')" # Retrieve the QEMU image $ wget https://files.clip-os.org/$BUILD/qemu.tar.zst # Extract and enter directory $ tar xf qemu.tar.zst && cd clipos_*_qemu # Read the README $ cat README.md # Start CLIP OS with QEMU $ ./qemu.sh # Start CLIP OS with QEMU without KVM support (not supported, may have issues) # See: https://discuss.clip-os.org/t/qemu-system-x86-64-overcommit-invalid-option-at-boot/76/12 $ ./qemu-nokvm.sh
You can login as root with no password.
