"bootaram" is a small DOL (GameCube executable file) which loads and executes another DOL previously stored into the Auxiliary RAM of the console.
A bootloader or an IPL replacement like the "bootdash" can load into ARAM an executable, and let "bootaram" launch it.
"dolxc", aka DOL exchange, converts executable archives between several formats commonly used in the Nintendo GameCube.
In this initial release, only conversions between binary and DOL formats are supported.
We have updated the gc-linux kernel to version 2.6.17, just like the main-line kernel.
The kernel patches are available for download via the File Release System.
We have added double-buffering and automagic vertical retrace sync to the libsdl port. This will avoid unwanted frame-tearing if enabled.
As a quick test, we have repackaged SuperTux again with these new changes, making the game even more enjoyable :-)
libsdl code is already on CVS, and supertux-0.1.3-gc-linux-takeII on the Files page.
