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.

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.

Is live CD support indeed an alpha 1 target?

comment:4 Changed 11 years ago by nielx

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 ?

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 Changed 11 years ago by nielx

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

comment:8 Changed 11 years ago by stippi

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...
