Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Dave Yeo, Yuri Dario


I have these built and ready for review:

Updates to 1.5 build:

  1. Added gcc1.dll and forwarders to bootstrap.
  2. Added libc066.dll to bootstrap.
  3. Added libgcc1 and libgcc-fwd packages.
  4. Updated dependency on libc066 in WIS (for gcc1).
  5. Updated netlabs-rel rpm to current.
  6. Adjusted platform file (for i686).
  7. Updated installer to push (rpm -U) libgcc1 and libgcc-fwd before the yum process begins (could not get libgcc-fwd to install later in the process).
  8. Updated ReadMe, keeping references to Yuri's site. ;-)
  9. Incremented minor version number.

This is related to ticket #151.

what bootstrap is ANPM downloading? If it's your version 1.6 I consider this done and to be closed.

Any objections?

Since I already lost the files in the past, I'm attaching the minimal set of files to build a new bootstrap archive.

BE AWARE that running this script will modify your local CONFIG.SYS

I think this is not the best way to install the code.

Probably a very simple script that asks for unixroot drive and platform selection is a lot better. This script then just needs to unpack the files, run 'yum install yum' and delete itself at the end.
All packaged into a self extracting exe.

Sorry, I missed the email for comment:1 when it came in.

ANPM simply asks the user for the location of the new @unixroot, then downloads a file which contains the uri of the latest zipped bootstrap, downloads that, and extracts to @unixroot, prompting to reboot after updating CONFIG.SYS. We don't use WarpIN for that at all.

I will rebuild the above WPIs with the updated script.

What we don't yet do with ANPM is query the system (or the user) for the proper arch. Instead, we settle on i686. This is a feature to be added going forward.

Resolution: no change needed
Status: newclosed

as we recommend ANPM to all new yum/rpm users, we will not provide any new wpi. So I close this for now.
