Upgrading from 0.6.x to 0.7.x Edit

  • XML config files have been removed. Use the command-line syntax in a name=value per line plain text file instead (see colinux-daemon.txt):
    kernel=vlinux
    mem=32
    cobd0=fs\root_fs
    cobd1=fs\swap_fs
    eth0=slirp
    root=/dev/cobd0
    ro
  • Replace the '-c name' with '@name' as parameter for colinux-daemon.
  • Locate for tool "colinux-xml2cfg", a XML to CFG converter for coLinux on SF or here
  • The file initrd contains no modules. Modules are only in the file vmlinux-modules.tar.gz. The initrd extracts modules over device cofs31 automaticly, if you configure it as "initrd=initrd.gz" in config file. After modules are installed, you can remove the initrd from config.
  • If upgrading from 0.6.1, see README.txt for 0.6.2 or Wiki for information about other issues when upgrading.
