this mail never reached the intended audiance. The m68k list is called
debian-68k (note the missing m). The m68k-build list might even be more
None of the m68k maintainers is subscribed to this list due to lack of time
AFAIK and I browse it only sporadically. So I am pretty pessimistic
about getting all the necessary changes into CVS till sunday.
Maybe you or somebody else can work on this instead. I think you can simply
copy all the files from the boot-floppies directly on CD (exept for Mac
which needs some special procedures. Our Mac guru is on a conference...). I
did this for a set of CDs and installed sucessfully on an amiga with it. It
probably works the same for ataris and vme, for the Mac you might be able to
clone the stuff from slink, it might be enough to take care of the new
Penguin version and the no longer needed prefs file.
Note that until sunday no m68k boot-floppies 2.2.15 will be on the servers
(unless somebody else builds them). There is still a bug in base-config
(which is fixed in 0.30, but only 0.29 is installed, 0.31 is in incoming and
might not go into frozen and 0.30 has vanished at least from incoming on
auric). I want the fiex base-config to go into the next boot-floppies for
m68k otherwise I can not test them easily.
I also want updated docs for m68k to go into the next boot-floppies, but
unless some user works on this, this will not happen.
