-# Debian LX-brand Images fuer SmartOS 
+# Debian LX-brand Images for SmartOS 
 
 ## TL;DR
-1. baue KVM auf SmartOS-Host
-1. Installiere in die KVM ein Debian
-1. debootstrap das Debian in Verzeichnis.tgz
-1. mache auf SmartOS-Host aus Verzeichnis.tgz ein LX-Image
+1. build a KVM on your SmartOS host
+1. Install your desired Debian into that KVM
+1. debootstrap Debian into foldername.tar.gz
+1. convert foldername.tar.gz into an lx-brand image on your SmartOS-Host
 
-## Voraussetzungen
-- Install-ISO zum Booten
-- VNC-Zugriff auf den SmartOS-Host
-- `id_rsa.pub` in `.ssh` auf dem Ansible-Host
+## Prerequirement
+- ISO file for booting and installing Debian
+- possibility to install Debian into an empty KVM (i.e. via vnc)
+- an `id_rsa.pub` in `.ssh` on your ansible host (because root login withou key is disabled by default)
+- ... maybe something is missing
 
-## Ablauf
-1. `vars.yml` und `ansible.cfg` anpassen
-1. Playbook `create_kvm.yml`: KVM bauen und mit Install-ISO booten
-  * KVM heisst " lx-builder"
-  * fuer Hardware-Optionen siehe Playbook
-  * gibt als Host und Port fuer VNC aus
-1. Standard-Installation mit dem Installer per Hand
-  * user anlegen, sein Passwort merken! (spaeter remote_user Passwort)
-  * root-Passwort merken! (spaeter become Passwort)
-1. Playbook `create_tarball.yml`: Tarball mit debian-lx-brand-image-builder bauen
+## Process
+1. adopt `vars.yml` and `ansible.cfg` to your needs
+1. run playbook `create_kvm.yml`: build a KVM and boot with your install ISO
+  * the KVM's name is "lx-builder" (ensure DNS queries leads to this host)
+  * for more hardware options have a look into the playbook
+  * host and port for a vnc client will be given at the end of the play
+1. perform a minimal installation with the installer medium
+  * create a user and remember the password! (later remote_user password)
+  * remember the root password! (later become password)
+1. run playbook `create_tarball.yml`: build a tarball with debian-lx-brand-image-builder script
   * run `ansible-playbook --ask-pass --ask-become-pass create_tarball.yml` 
-  * debootstrappt Debian in KVM in `/root/lx`
-  * erstellt Ergebnisse in `/root/debian-lx-brand-image-builder` und kopiert es dann nach `/tmp` damit jeder darauf zugreifen kann
-1. manuell kopiere `/tmp/debian-lx-brand-image-builder` auf SmartOS-Host
-1. Playbook `create_lx_image.yml`: baut das LX-Image und das Manifest
-  * laeuft auf SmartOS-Host
-  * erstellt Image in `/tmp`, d.h. Kopieren vor Reboot!
-1. Import des LX-Image mit `imgadm install -m MANIFEST.json -f ZONEFILE.zfs.gz`
-1. Anzeigen mit ` imgadm list`
+  * that makes a debootstrap debian on the KVM into `/root/lx`
+  * all results are located in `/root/debian-lx-brand-image-builder` and copied to `/tmp` to make it accessable to everyone
+1. copy the folder `/tmp/debian-lx-brand-image-builder` on a SmartOS host
+1. run playbook `create_lx_image.yml`: build an lx-brand image (.zfs.gz) und corresponding manifest (.json)
+  * has to be run on the SmartOS host!
+  * create the image in `/tmp`, i.e. it has to be copied to somewhere else
+1. Import your lx-brand image with `imgadm install -m MANIFEST.json -f ZONEFILE.zfs.gz`
+1. check with `imgadm list`
