Managing a standard userland image
Sun Feb 1 23:04:01 CET 2004
I booted on the 2004-01-29 binary and wow, feels so good.
As for maintaining a userland, I think we need something better than CVS,
that would be fit to handle binaries. Those software projects that seem
interesting to me are as follow:
Can anyone here recommend one of them?
Can anyone here host one of them?
Another solution would be to have something like a Gentoo port. Ahem.
Or a way to install a few packages by NFS, and automatically mirror
just a list of the important files to the local CF image.
* keymap: where the '" should be the keymap say `~ and where `~ is
the keymap says ** - and of course, my keyboard is AZERTY FR.
Plus the arrows are mapped to keypad numbers instead of arrows.
* the kernel lacks vfat support; not so good for sharing data with windows.
The default configuration should include that, I think (at least, until
and unless we find a way to get rid of Windows altogether).
* I miss Emacs like crazy. Looking forward to that bigger disk.
