Xenoppix(Xen3.0.2+KNOPPIX5.0.1)CD is released


"Xenoppix(Xen3.0.2+KNOPPIX5.0.1)CD" is released.
  Home Page http://unit.aist.go.jp/itri/knoppix/xen/index-en.html

It boots KNOPPIX on Xen HVM Domain on Intel VT (Example: iMac CoreDuo) and AMD SVM.
 *It use isolinux + mbootpack instead of GRUB, because the combination
  expands bootable machines. It enables Xen to boot on EFI (iMac CoreDuo).
 *LCAT(Live CD Acceleration Tool kit : English Manual PDF) is applied
  to make fast boot. It was effective on Dom0, DomU and HVM.
    LCAT HP: http://sourceforge.jp/projects/lcat/
    English Manual: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.jp/lcat/20452/lcat_1.0_manual_e_20060628.pdf

  Boot method on isolinux 
    boot: xen 
       Default. Linux kernel 2.6.16+xen3.0.2 on Dom0. 
    boot: xendom0 
       Linux kernel 2.6.16+xen3.0.2 on Dom0. Memory of Dom0 is limited 512MB. 
       It is used for Intel VT and AMD SVM. 
    boot: xenhvm 
        Linux kernel 2.6.16 on HVM Domain. It is includes "nolapic noapic nosmp noapm" option. 
    boot: knoppix 
        For normal KNOPPIX. 

  Command to run Xen Dom0 and HVM. 
        To run Xen-Dom0 with CD-KNOPPIX. 
        CAUTION: Confirm "eth0" is effective because VNC of DomU depends on eth0. 
        To run KNOPPIX on HVM Domain. After running, please select "xenhvm" for
         bootable kernel. 

  Special Usage 
     You may boot another CD-bootable OS. We could boot HTTP-FUSE KNOPPIX on HVM. 
       *Confirm "eth0" is effective because bridge depends on eth0. 
          *On iMac, "boot: xendom0 nofirewire" option, because firewire are recoginized eth0 device. 
       *Download knoppix-fuse-4.0.2_20060207.iso at /tmp/ 
       *Rewrite "/usr/sbin/knoppixHVM" at knoppix_hvm() as follows. 
          Before: cdrom = "/dev/cdrom" 
          After:  cdrom = "/tmp/knoppix-fuse-4.0.2_20060207.iso" 
       *Run "knoppixHVM" 
          Add boot option "nolapic noapic nosmp noapm". You will find KNOPPIX 4.0.2 on HVM. 

    *Update iMac SMC 1.0.1 to boot from CD-ROM. Press the "Option" button at 
     PowerOn. You find the selection menu bootable device.
    *Xen on iMac is not stable. Sometimes Dom0 is rebooted. 
    *On iMac, boot with "nofirewire" option, because firewire are recoginized eth0 device.

We will attend Ottawa Linux Symposium (OLS2006) to presnted "HTTP-FUSE Xenoppix".
We also exhibit HTTP-FUSE KNOPPIX/Xenoppix Box (SH4-Linux Rooter with TFTP and HTTP Proxy) 
at CE Linux Forum DEMO Booth at OLS2006.
