Bug#106313: ITP: s390-tools -- a set of utilities for Linux on S390
Version: N/A; reported 2001-07-23
The package contains a set of fundamental utilities needed for
Linux on S390 and Linux on zSeries (description taken from
* dasdfmt, which is used to low-level format ECKD-DASDs with
either the classic disk layout or the new zSeries compatible
* fdasd, which is used to create or modify partitions on
ECKD-DASDs formatted with the zSeries compatible disk layout.
* zipl, which is used to make either dasds or tapes bootable for
system IPL or system dump.
* zgetdump, which is used to retrieve system dumps from either
tapes or dasds.
The package is released under the GPL by IBM and can be
downloaded from http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/
Since I am not (yet) a Debian developer this package will be
sponsored by Stefan Gybas (email@example.com).
