GuarddoG has been upgraded to Ubuntu Server 11.04..
I have also included in the repository various scripts that make reinstalling the whole OS and then patching it with GuarddoG easy

To test the build I use KVM and then copy it using dd to the usb stick , something like this ( ) that way all the processing is done in my workstation and I dont waste USB read/write cycles
The only problem I faced while using KVM was that in the beggining I didn`t make a Userspace KVM machine and had many problems bridging the network with my network , but making a Userspace KVM machine everything just worked “out of the box”
