Re: Bootable CD and grub (was: Hurd Advocacy?)

        Here's an update on my status in getting a bootable hurd CD.
Using a patched grub and a script called mkbimage, I was able to create a
bootable el-torito ext2fs HD image with a copy of most of my hurd
partition on it.  Gnumach seems to boot fine, but the process halts on a
line that says...

ext2fs: device: hd0s1: panic: get_hypermetadata: had magic number 0x11d
(should be 0xef53)

...I'll try to track down the meaning of that message.  My next thought is
to try to create a libtrivfs ram-file (as opposed to a full ram-fs, the
learn to crawl before you walk thing) and setup of some of those as active
translators to enable write access.  Then I'll take a look at getting
tempfs and unionfs up and running over top of the CD image.
