            A note about licenses................
            I have just recieved a mail from someone stating that this distribution violates the license of a package used within it as it distributes the software under a different license without permission.

            As far as we are aware this project adheres to the terms of all licensed software that is distributed within it.

            The projects states "Free To Use But Restricted, Other/Proprietary License" due to the fact that it distributes software under a number of different license types. As far as Mungkie associates are concerned anyone using it is free to do whatever they wish with the project distribution as long as they adhere to all relevant licenses. All code within the project produced by Mungkie Associates is freeware that you can use as you wish, other software such as busybox/uclibc/linux kernel/XFree86 have their own license terms that users must satisfy.

            If anyone has any problems at all with license terms of this software please contact us and we will be pleased to try and make changes where necessary.

            Most respected intelligent and dilligent master my blessings and salutations go out to you. Your endeavour is fraught and many obstacles those who hear not the please of the needy.

            The B of Tech is not the A of Tech but its final is only the beginning.

            I assume you may live in the southern hemispere and have not heard of the chirality of electron spin causing magnetic sector irregularity, This little known effect requires that those who live south of the equator format their floppy disks twice and run badblocks to verify that the disk holds the data without errors!!!!!

            If that is not the case then you must make sure that the data size of root image and kernel is less than 1.4Mb. Please make study of the bootdisks howto or some similar text.

            If this knowledge does not help those in need only they can help themselves.

            error while installing 2-disk x window embedded Linux
            Respected sir,

            My name is nagalakshmi. I am

            studying final year B.Tech. When I am surfing the

            Freshmeat site I came to Know about 2-disk x

            window Embedded Linux. I am very much

            interested to install this software on my computer.

            I downloaded the software which fits on 2-floopy

            disks.Then I prepared the boot floppies by following

            the 'Read' file. I restarted the system . The

            Installation is going successfully upto some extent.

            But after some time an error is occured. I am going

            to write what ever error message it is displayed.

            /sbin/getty: error in loading shared libraries: libcrypt.so.1 can't open shared object file. No such file or directory.

            Please send me solution to resolve

            this error. I am downloading the 1.5 version of 2-

            disk x window embedded Linux. If possible Plz send

            me an error free version which fits in 2 floppies. It

            is my humble request Plz give me reply to this

            mail. I am pretty much interested to use this

            system on my computer. Each time when I

            installing the Linux i spend nearly 3hrs on

            installation and configuriation procedures for

            accessing the internet. This 2-disk x window linux

            solve this problem. Thats why i am very much

            interested to install this software on my computer.

            Plz send me solution to resolve error occured while

            installing.

            Thankyou Sir.
