i guess that if i upgrade your tarballl with newer packages, it will have the
same effect for me ? Is there yet a ramdisk or something ? i know there is not
yet installation floppies, but a ramdisk that will help people install without
having some other linux on another partition ?
I ask because i want to write, or adapt from an existing one, some installation
guide for the linux/apus faq.
Also right now i am making a local mirror on my syjet cartridge of all the
debian/slink/ppc stuff, and i will begin compiling things at home, now that the
kernel works, and that i figured out how to make this solaris box recognize my
syjet. Hope the sun partitioning scheme works fine under linux :)
So what is the exact procedure for compiling packages, how do i access the list
of packages available for compilation, and how do i state that i will compile
this and that package. I think i will have to check if my pgp key is already in
the keyring or something such last i checked, 2weeks ago i think, it was not
i will do libgtk this weekend and upload it monday, since i use it, perhaps
some gnome and e stuff also, and then other things that i will want to install
but that are not yet compiled.
a yes, i have a question, how do you say dpkg-buildpackage to put my email
address when compiling packages, and not the bogus address that he will find on
my not internet connected box ?
Also in oldenburg you told me of opening an account on a ppc box, what is the
procedure i have to follow for that ?
