Note sysinst doesn't have menu items for ATARITT and FALCON kernels.
Should we have them or not?
I guess it's better to have them aboard that not :) Another issue with
Will test build (plus with further trimmed SMALL030 (BOOT)) with
updated sysinst kernel list before commit.
sysinst is when user wants to install sets from unmounted fs; installer by
default doesn't use -G flag when it mounts filesystem. To make it work
filesystem field must specified like "msdos -o -G" or filesystem should
be mounted before extraction of sets starts and "local filesystem" method
should be used; at least this must be documented.
What is the difference between a Atari-Gemdos and MSDOS
filesystem, can it *always* be reliably determined by looking at
the MBR or similar? If so then maybe NetBSD should be handling
Whatever we do, maybe we should keep one kernel without RELOC_KERNEL
because there's comment in atari/atari_init.c in line 151 saying that
RELOC_KERNEL does not work on all TT's.
For now I'm inclined to say that should be SMALL030 (until we
find someone with such a machine who is willing to test kernels
to work out why!)
Hmm.. what would RELOC_KERNEL do on a machine with 2MB of TTRAM?
