Hi again people.
I've now successfully played around a bit and managed to create an XFS enabled Redhat 8.0 DVD with all the latest updates.
It's basically RH8 + all updates as of yesterday morning and 1.2pre3 kernel and tools.
But, now to the two issues that exist with it:
Can someone please tell me why the languages to choose from are limited to English languages in the XFS installer (you can select all in the original)?
Also, what's the issue with grub? Why doesn't it work the way it should?
Apart from these minor issues I can just push in the DVD and it autoboots and everything just like the originals do, except that it uses the 1.2pre3 kernel both for install and then to run, so it's really a RH8 + XFS 1.2pre3 DVD. I can even do the mediacheck.
If anyone would want an iso I don't think it's that easy. It IS 3.5 GiB
after all, but I might be able to put together some kind of script that
would make all the steps necessary, it's a bit of manual patching in at
least one step. Unless someone of course has the bandwidth available to serve 3.5 GiB files ...
Thanx go out to the people that responded to my mails before, you know who you are. Especially the middle link from one of the mails (the one to personam.it) helped alot, although I didn't do it totally like they do :).
