Woody cd images site (cdimage-unofficial.debian.net) updated


After not being able to build the images for some time due to a downtime on
the mirror I was using to make the cd images, I'm glad to say that cd images
are up to date again, and that I have new stuff also.

The new stuff is that I have added s390 images which seem to build well,
even though they are of course untested, if any of the s390 guys wants to
test them, he is welcome to do it.

I have also tried to add mips and mipsel, but they lack the scripts to make
the cds bootable, so I have not made images for them at the moment, I'll
try to mail debian-mips and see if they can make this scripts.

So, well, we are now making cd images of 9 out of the 11 architectures, just
lacking the mips ones out of the targetted arches for Woody.

There are still some problems with alpha, as isomarkboot which comes on the
aboot package is not included on any other arch but on alpha.

Also I'm still having some problems with post-boot-alpha and use an old
modification on post-boot-alpha I had done to avoid it. Below is a diff
between what I use and the code that is on cvs.

The error the code on cvs gives is this:

# isomarkboot can't resolve symlinks within the ISO image, so we do it
# manually.
BOOTVER=`readlink $CDROOT/dists/$CODENAME/main/disks-alpha/current`
readlink $CDROOT/dists/$CODENAME/main/disks-alpha/current
make: *** [bin-images] Error 1

Also on my system current is not a link, because of the way on wich I do the
mirror, so it would be good if this could be considered also.
