ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 6145
Last modified: 2015-10-22 15:33:36 MSD
Checkpoint/Restore In Userspace, or CRIU (pronounced kree-oo, IPA: /krɪʊ/, Russian: криу), is a software tool for Linux operating system. Using this tool, you can freeze a running application (or part of it) and checkpoint it to a hard drive as a collection of files. You can then use the files to restore and run the application from the point it was frozen at. The distinctive feature of the CRIU project is that it is mainly implemented in user space.
Why could one want that in a desktop system? For the present, CRIU offers the most for the server systems but not so much for desktop ones.
For example, CRIU cannot handle the apps that work with device files, all graphics (X11) apps are a problem too.
I think ROSA is an OS for a server as well, since there is a bunch of server kernels available ?

ROSA Fresh is not generally intended for server tasks.
These "server" kernels are in contrib in case someone still needs them but are not supported officially.
