Post SystemRescueCD-PPC 0.2.0

Here we are finally with sysresccd 0.2.0. The most important thing in this release is the new kernel 2.6. Then, every system packages has been updated accordingly.
From now on, I will focus on more reliability and try to add packages or modules you could find useful.

Main features :

- kernel 2.6
- new eagle-usb drivers
- gcloop
- new packages (see pkglist)

I'll more than likely add qtparted in the future release as soon as possible...

As usual, any suggestions are welcome
enjoy !

Post The download link
Maybe one has to be logged in to see the link's.

Anyway it's in the download section, on the homepage, too.

Hope this give's me the option to boot my Debian, which I installed in PearPC [PowerPC Emulator (pearpc.sf.net)] .

does parted works well with 2.6 kernel?
I heard about geometry troubles when using parted with 2.6 kernel, is it solved?

This problem is supposed to be solved with parted-1.6.12. And there is a patch for parted-1.6.12 and HFS:

Even if you have an alpha hardware, making a port of SysRescCd is not so easy. It's not just a tarball with C sources to compile as another program. It's a kit of several scripts that use the gentoo package system to take a classic linux system (as any installed gentoo linux) and it makes a system that can be put on a read only disc.

If you are interested in making a port for alpha, the first thing to do is to have a look at the alpha port of the gentoo, and look at the livecd. Maybe you will have to use catalyst, but I really don't know this hardware well.

The latest Gentoo LiveCD didn't boot on my AlphaServer 2000 but I had success with the latest Sarge. The CD drive is quite picky about the CD media and it reads only CD-R, not CD-RW. Overall it seemed to me that Debian/Alpha is maintained and cared about much better than Gentoo/Alpha.

Post sysresccd on beige G3
Worked for me to repair my Yellodoglinux 3.0 system on beige G3. They do not provide a real rescue option on their iso.

Because it has to boot with bootx, I copied the parameters from the yaboot.conf and typed them in as kernel options.

Thanks, it helped to repair my system.
