syslinux and bootcd packages
I needed to create a bootable AMD64 CD yesterday and to get there, I
installed a fairly minimal debian-pure64 (sarge) installation and
created AMD64 packages for syslinux and bootcd (along with
bootcd-amd64). While fixing bootcd to build and work on AMD64 was pretty
trivial, building syslinux required to build the package in i386, modify
the build-scripts on AMD64 and copy the DOS/assembler stuff from the
i386 build directory to the AMD64 build directory. Anyhow:
Is anyone interested in the working syslinux and bootcd packages I
created? Or in the bootable AMD64 CD (which includes most network and
filesystem tools)? I could make both available to the public.
Please note that I didn't change the syslinux package to build on AMD64.
I only created a working AMD64 binary package while building from the
source still requires a lot of manual work.
