Post by Michael Bec » Wed, 07 May 2003 12:00:07



Hi,

On the website

        http://www.rho-sigma.de/atari8bit/fs.html

you can find the first public release of the Atari 8bit filesystem
driver for Linux.

About:

ATR8FS is a ATARI 8bit filesystem for Linux released under the GPL. It
originated from the 8bit ATARI machines. It allows to read disk images from
a more than twenty years old computer :-)

Features of Version 0.1

- Can mount ATR images (currently the only possibiliy to access
  a ATARI 8bit disk :-)
- Can read DOS2 compatible filesystems, like DOS 2.0S, DOS 2.0D,
  DOS 2.5, BiboDOS, MyDOS ...
- Can read DOS3 filesystems
- Can read DOS4 (Antic DOS) filesystems
- Can read SpartaDOS 2+ compatible filesystems
- Currently NO write support
- Currently no direct disk access
- Alpha implementation, not heavily tested yet

Have fun,

--

ANNOUNCE: Atari 8bit filesystem driver for Linux 0.1 released

Date:     May 13, 2003    
Time:     7:30pm    
Topic:    The How's and Why's of a LTSP Implementation.    
Location: Galbraith Building, U of T    Room:  GB244

Speaker:  Tim Brodie
        tbrodie at displayworksinc dot com
        IT Manager, SysAdmin, S/W Developer

Speaker Bio: Tim Brodie is a 21 year IT veteran (ask him about IBM
        Series 1 assembly language) with experience in developing and
        integrating software for mainframes, mini's and
        microcomputers.

        He has had the pleasure of spending the last three years
        planning and executing the migration to Linux of Display Works
        Inc, a custom manufacturer of retail store fixtures.

        Currently, Display Works has 60% of its desktops and 95% of
        its infrastructure running on Redhat and Mandrake Linux, with
        the balance running integrated legacy software.

Summary: Every one who has a computer on his or her desktop these days
        has at their fingertips more raw horsepower than any of the
        major banks had running in the 70's. So why is there a
        compelling case for Display Works to "regress" to taking a
        mainframe approach to sharing a main application server?

        Find out why many of today's contexts (including, perhaps,
        your home LAN) make a excellent case for a LTSP
        implementation.

        And, see some pictures of the results. I'll be glad to discuss
        the implementation, configuration of supporting services and
        some of the really positive results obtained... even running
        Mandrake 9.1.

1. Linux for MS-DOS Filesystems release 0.1.a

If you forget where you got this, it's in ftp.netcom.com:/pub/ec/ecarp/linux.*

Release notes for Linux for MS-DOS filesystems

Release date: 1/14/95

Release version: 0.1.a

RESTRICTIONS
----------
This release of linux (based on the 1.1.76 kernel) has been configured for the
following hardware:

IDE HD controller
386/486 processor with or without FP
4 MB minimum RAM
13 MB minimum free HD space
No networking card
Network software
IP forwarding
SLIP/CSLIP/PLIP

No support for either networking cards or SCSI HD controllers has been compiled
in.

This release is designed to sit on to of the MS-DOS filesystem, eliminating the
need for repartitioning your hard drive.  It is a minimal linux release,
and is specifically designed to support SLIP/CSLIP/PLIP connections to a
remote server.  This release supports elm, smail, telnet, ftp, as well as
the usual familiar networking utilities.  This release also supports irc.

INSTALLATION
------------
To install, follow these steps:

1.      Download LINUX.ZIP to your system.

2.      cd to \.

3.      Do "pkunzip -d linux.zip"

4.      Run INSTALL.BAT.  This will boot linux up in single user mode.

5.      When asked for a password, just hit return.

6.      At the "#" prompt, type "inst".  This will start up the configuration
        routine.  Fill in the blanks - when you are done, press CTRL-D to
        configure the system and reboot with the new configuration.

7.      When the system reboots to DOS, type "linux".  This will bring the
        system up in multiuser mode.

8.      Congratulations!  You are now running linux. :)

Hopefully, you're not a new linux user, because this release contains no
source code for anything, nor does it contain much in the way of basic
documentation.  It does contain a minimal set of manpages, though.


and I'll try to help.  Unfortunately, I can't help anyone with basic linux or
UNIX questions. :(
