I am new to this list and to UML a project that I just discovered today.
Here is what I am doing/looking for:
I am making packages for a single floppy firewall/router (
http://leaf.sourceforge.net ). Kernel used for that purpose: 2.2.19 +
2 special patches. Everything boots out a floppy (like tombsrt). Also
these packages must be compiled under Debian/Slink ( libc size smaller )
I am running my main linux machine under Debian/Potatoe
Here is what I would like to do:
I log on my main Potatoe machine. Under this machine I log on my first
UML machine to have access to my Debian/slink so I can compile my
packages under that environnement. I then create a virtual LEAF floppy
that I can boot under a second UML machine.
That would avoid perpetual reboots to switch from one environment to
another. Also the virtual "floppy boot" should be quicker ?
Am I dreaming or not ?
What are the required steps (I am still a bit confused by the doc). Any
guidance will be appreciated.
