Announcement of version 0.9.2 of Linux/68k

This message announces the availability of version 0.9.2 of Linux/68k. It can be ftped from directory /pub/linux/680x0 at A precompiled kernel executable can be found in vmlinux-0.09pl2.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory.

The corresponding “bootstrap” program for the Amiga is available in file amiboot-1.8.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory. If available, the “bootstrap” program for the Atari will be found in file “ataboot-0.2.gz” in the “kernel” subdirectory (the author of this ANNOUNCE-* file cannot compile such a “bootstrap” program and thus is waiting for one from someone else).

The source patch for the this version of the kernel can be found in linux-0.9.pl2.diff.gz in the “src” subdirectory.

Change of Maintainer of LSM

Lars Wirzenius posted in comp.os.linux.announce: ..I'm taking over maintenance of the Linux Software Map, or LSM for short. I'll start by making a number of changes; see the new LSM template below. In addition to changes to the template, you might want to prepare yourselves for some initial confusion on my part while I make myself comfortable with the new job. :-)

Hopefully everything will go well. Don't wish me luck, send me constructive criticism.

I am uploading to sunsite a database in the new form and a tool for browsing it. The tool, called lsmtool, is not all that well written, and is somewhat prone to crash. You have been warned. It also requires Publib, a library of C functions I've written, which you will have to get separately.


I would be grateful if anyone who keeps the LSM on WWW or makes it otherwise available would contact me. There might be something that I can do to make your life simpler, and at the very least, I can list URL's in the README.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
