BICK builds a bootable Linux ISO image from a file tree that represents the run time file tree loaded into tmpfs with options to leave /opt and /usr mounted on the CDROM to save space. For systems with enough RAM, up to as much file data as will fit on the CDROM can be loaded; initial ramdisk is not used for the runtime files.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
|Implementation||Unix Shell C|
Release Notes: Sun Sparc platform support. One CD can be made, with the appropriate file trees (pre-compiled samples included to make a rescue CD), which boots on either Sun Sparc or an Intel compatible PC (El Torito).
Release Notes: This release adds changes in project directory organization to simplify setups (one system tree per project; a few name changes are involved), adds a DHCP startup config for eth0 to the demo rescue CD system, cleans up config variable setups, and removes the obsolete symlink-based variable configs in favor of a single config file (a sourced bash file).
Release Notes: This release splits the demo system into a separate tarball, and includes an expanded scope of search for project variables.
Release Notes: The project is intended to eventually support dual-boot ISO images, but this alpha release contains only Intel support and some framework for SPARC.
