Projects / magicErmine


magicErmine is a tool for creating portable applications for Linux. It allows the same Linux executable to be run on a wide range of different distributions. Like statifier, It makes one executable file with no run-time dependencies from a dynamically linked executable and all of its libraries. Unlike statifier, it is able to add arbitrary files to the packed executable, such as configuration files or pixmaps.
