Journal ShadowRage's Journal: Minute Linux

working on a project called minute linux, it'll offer a customizeable linux system for that older machine collecting dust in the attic, and will also provide upgrades for existing projects like small linux.

anyways, I need some suggestions, like how to boot a minixfs system using the bootblocks part of the linux86 package with an i386 kernel (it'll already work with the 8086 port, which already has more progress than the i386 version of minute)

that and any good resources for a small login prompt and where I can get a good mailing list set up.

it also uses a package manager called mglit which is lean and provides some functionality, after the first release of mglit and minute, I'll publish ways to make packages with mglit.
