I already signed the system architect mailing list.
So I'll be waiting...
I'm always happy to have an offer of help. Thanks for your interest.
Here is how I've been going about doing the recipes.
1. Choose a source code package, figure out how to build it and write
down the steps.
2. Make sure that the installation conforms to the Filesystem Hierarchy
Standard guidelines. My preference is to keep the / partition very
uncluttered. So if FHS does not say it goes in /, it should not install
there. Take a look at the coreutils-5.0 recipe for an example.
3. Once you know how to build it, make a recipe script using the
template file or another recipe.
Sometimes these steps overlap and blend together.
I'll be working on making recipes from the sources used in the Pocket
Linux Guide and I will add them to CVS on Savannah.
Here's some stuff I could really use help with:
If anyone has a package that would be good to add, please make a recipe
for it (or just write down the steps) and share it with the group. Also
find out if it has any dependencies on other libraries besides glibc.
We also need to finding ways to install on various types of media
besides floppy disks. For example hard drives, Zip disks, bootable
CD-ROM's, flash cards, network boot, etc. If anyone has a device that
can be booted with a kernel and a static root shell, please share your
