I fired it up. I really wanted to like it, but seems very broken. usernames look like they overlap in the menu, and pictures although they claim to upload never show up, only appearing as a broken box. At the moment, only like a test message version of a limited facebook alike server. It may be I have not done something that I should do, as I just boot up and run tests. Feel free to advise if I’ve missed a step..





Roger LuedeckeRoger Luedecke,

Good idea! Please be sure to maintain this, maybe I could help get the word out… so long as development is kept active.

Nisarg DesaiNisarg Desai,

is it just enough os?
no gui , how to get to any directory ?

Cristian MesselCristian Messel,

there is no gui because it is a server. no gui is needed.

Cristian MesselCristian Messel,

user: tux
pass: linux

you can see details about the appliance on this page

Been familiar with Diaspora since Kickstart.
Props on providing an easy avenue for test drives!

Peter NicholsonPeter Nicholson,

For me it also doesent boot! I now a better os: PeterOS!! I think it is the best


I used the testdrive. I cannot get it to boot up. >:(

Cristian MesselCristian Messel,

ive been monitoring it in the past few days and it works for me. any chance you want to try again?

Andy FitzsimonAndy Fitzsimon,

this is awesome! the easiest way to try diaspora!

Jos PoortvlietJos Poortvliet,

There is a security issue with this appliance, because diaspora doesn’t have authentication support for mongodb yet. The appliance uses a mongodb which is accessible from the world – if you don’t start it with —bind_ip localhost the world can read the database. Use the package from and disable —auth in /etc/sysconfig/mongodb.

Moreover, editing /etc/redis.conf and setting bind would be good too :D

Cristian MesselCristian Messel,

thanks for your concern but mongod is started with —bind_ip

for more info look into /home/tux/
