## System requirements
I developed this tool with [Arch Linux]( as such it relies upon that platfrom.
It works on the latest stable rust, currently 1.17.0.
## Setup instructions
To use this project I recommend installing a minimal Arch Linux on a usb stick (4GB or more).
Compile wipe_buddy with `cargo build --release`.
The resulting binary should be placed inside the home directory of root or the sticks `/usr/bin/`.
The stick does not need to connect to the network or run a graphical user interface.
### TODO autostart wipe_buddy
