This seems rather interesting, I can see how it might prove incredibly
flexible. I am curious about something (I did not download it yet)...it
uses a compressed filesystem. What form of compression is this? Is it
it uses cloop which over time will be replaced with the now standard
cramfs. cloop is originally from Rusty Russel but is not available for 2.4
the same form as a bzImage uses? Is it some form of customized
filesystem, or just the loopback changes to support it? Apparently
lnx.img is an entire compressed filesystem, mounted as /boot/.....can
any normal vmlinuz style image be used there (are there special naming
With the patches to mount the cloop fs.
And biggest question...it seems that it is designed to run some of its
commands directly on a CD, like makeBBC prep...is it mandatory to have
the CD burner on the machine doing the creation, or can an iso simply be
created on one machine and burned on another? It seems that it could
make an excellent rescue system for every filesystem type under the sun.
No, it makes a .iso file which you can then burn. They make nightly ISO
images when their tree changes.
I am looking into but I don't have everything setup yet to make a modified
version of it.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
