Incorporation of the well known live cd scripts in the build.

Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

Purpose: to test and fix haiku's various issues, with the live cd method; it's more easy and quick, to boot haiku in a machine, without even touching the hard disk of the machine. (Testing haiku in 5 different machines i got: 1 success) Also to make "the boot from cd" method more mature.

Milestone: R1R1/alpha

Priority: normalblocker

Moving this to blocker: since one of the goals for alpha 1 would be the release of a livecd, this indeeds blocks alpha 1.

comment:3 by bonefish, 12 years ago

Is live CD support indeed an alpha 1 target?

comment:4 by nielx, 12 years ago

It has been mentioned during the mailing list discussion at least by stippi and axeld. I'm reading through that thread (44 messages) again, and I'm writing up a summary which I'll publish tomorrow.

This has been done (by mmu_man). Closing ?

Owner: changed from bonefish to mmu_man

I'd say: close it as soon as it is documented (in the ReadMe in short, and maybe a short article on the website).

comment:7 by nielx, 12 years ago

Ah, I see that was added in [24222], so feel free to close...

comment:8 by stippi, 12 years ago

Let's please add the Bootscript.cd yet, and start the Installer from there. Then close this. :-)

i tried to generate the iso file from linux gcc2 (./configure --build-cross-tools ../buildtools/). It seems that the image is missing, see attached file jam_-q_haiku-boot-cd.txt

Check the instructions again. You should also perform a 'jam -q haiku-image'.

oh, my bad sorry. i had the impression that the image should be inside the iso file

No it's not, it's the second track of the CD.

ok, thanks; how can i verify that is there (the haiku.image)? i mount the dvd and i see: /dev/hdc 1808 1808 0 100% /media/cdrom0 ls /media/cdrom0 gives: boot.catalog haiku-boot-floppy.image README.html

may be i did something wrong?

That's the first track, the ISO one. As the 2nd one is BFS I'm not sure how linux will see it...
