Re: [parisc-linux] Version 0.9 of PA-RISC Linux Released
Congratulations, team, on making the release!
I had a quick look the files which I found here:
A couple of questions arose:
- what's the 142MB "gg" file dated "01-Jun-2001 10:23"? I mean, I know
who gg is (hi grant) but as this file is of around the same vintage as
all the 0.9 compressed ISOs I thought I'd see if it was related
- are all the 0.9 ISOs identical except for which kernel is booted by
default? eg does the 0.9-32bit-STI CD image also contain the kernels
for the 32bit-serial and 64bit-serial installs?
Oh, hang on, I see my second question is already answered by the footer
of the above HTTP directory listing, but I'll leave it in for the
archives I guess. Answer is:
You can change one 0.9 ISO into another by replacing the first 512
bytes. For example, to change the 32serial into the 64serial, do
dd bs=512 conv=notrunc if=palinux-0.9-64serial.iso.sector0 \
You probably want to rename the file too...
I see the same information is provided in a more brief form at the
bottom of the 0.9 README. Oh well, pardon my ramblings. ;)
