Release Notes: This is mostly a documentation synchronization release, clearing out old and unnecessary documents and bringing what remains up to date. The tarball includes all that is required to create the alpha image (except the binary application packages available for download).
Release Notes: This release includes run-control files and instructions for creating the user space in tmpfs. The user directory is non-permanent in tmpfs, loaded with any files in /storage/skel, and has RW access to /storage. This alpha version is still DIY and requires that alpha-03 be built before adding 04, 05, and 06.
Release Notes: This release includes run-control files and instructions for moving the 04 image to a read-only root filesystem. Project downloads now includes a Packages directory for any outside applications needed in the image. These currently include nvi, clex, and boypages.
Release Notes: This release includes the run-control files and instructions to move the alpha-03 image to a simulated state of having a readonly root fs. Tmpfs is being used in a first draft of its final use in the USB. You must boot into the image into this simulated state before moving to readonly root fs. Note that you must install the system in the alpha-03 release in order to add the alpha-04 files.
Release Notes: Cheix has been changed from an initrd-style image to a standard Slackware installation. This release contains everything needed to simulate the target USB image on a three-partition, 500 Mb installation to a hard drive. All previous apps are in the installation. The kernel and modules are now non-SMP. Nvi has been substituted for elvis. Openssh was substituted for dropbear. Clex and a minimized install of boypages have been added. This release is in preparation for changing the root filesystem to be read-only.
Release Notes: This version adds all available wireless modules, packages, and firmware, the full module tree, nano, and mailx. It fixes the broken egrep and adds man pages for the existing apps. Man is not present, as the pages will be converted to Boy.
Release Notes: This is a preliminary sketch of the Cheix image.
