YACS 0.2 does build binary CDs !
the second version of YACS is here, i've successfully built a set of
3 binary CDs for potato (the CD 1 & 2 are bootable) :
~/debian-cd@p200$ ls -al /rack/debian-cd/
drwxr-xr-x 2 rhertzog rhertzog 1024 Jul 17 17:47 ./
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 1024 Jul 6 15:10 ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 rhertzog rhertzog 637984768 Jul 18 19:35 potato1-i386.raw
-rw-r--r-- 1 rhertzog rhertzog 637382656 Jul 18 19:48 potato2-i386.raw
-rw-r--r-- 1 rhertzog rhertzog 149377024 Jul 18 19:51 potato3-i386.raw
It does use the new apt-cache function for generating the list of
packages to include on each CD, it's now really fast ... Ten seconds instead
of 2 hours !! This version of apt is labelled 0.3.11.1 and is in
$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/deity
$ cvs login
$ cvs -z3 co apt
$ cd apt
$ debuild -rsudo
$ cd ..
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
It takes a little bit more than one hour to generate images from scratch.
It will take more if you launch the check of the mirror before ...
Much of the work has been done, I need to add some things like the
Packages.cd files (which are only used by dpkg-multicd and not apt-cdrom
AFAIK) and a README.1ST file ... after that I'll have to work on the
More details are given in the README* files ...
And here's the archive :
If some people could test and give their impression, it would be
PS: The shortest way to create CDs is with this command line :
$ vim CONF.sh
$ . CONF.sh
$ make potato_status list official_images COMPLETE=1 SIZELIMIT1=576716800
