Subject: [gentoo-alpha] Alpha LiveCD available for testing
Date: Fri, 27 Feb 2004 13:39:44
1 I've finally succeeded in building a LiveCD for the Alpha platform with
2 catalyst. The result, a 58 MB file, can be downloaded from
3 . Anyone
4 who's interested in Gentoo on the Alpha is invited to download and test it.
6 I've done some testing, but haven't tried installing a system with it yet.
7 It does boot, talk to the network, and see SCSI-attached disks without extra
8 parameters if they're attached to the controllers normally sold wiht Alpha
9 systems.
11 The CD was built with a zisofs filesystem. It has 3 kernels installed, one
12 for normal use, one intended for use with MILO for those systems that can't
13 run aboot for some reason, and one built specifically for the Jensen
14 platform.
16 I've created bug 43092 to add the specfiles and scripts to catalyst.
