14:53<ra12q:#uml>hi all - i looked around on the wiki, but i must be blind. i don't fancy running vmware or virtualbox - i presume i can use UML to trial out a .iso for a distro i might download? if so is there anything i can read to set this up? thanks!
15:07<jdike:#uml>A couple of init files probably need fiddling
15:10<ra12q:#uml>Is there anything more highlevel?
15:11<jdike:#uml>what do you mean?
15:12<ra12q:#uml>well, i download said .iso -- now what? ;)
15:13<jdike:#uml>is it bootable
15:13<jdike:#uml>?
15:13<ra12q:#uml>In this case, yes
15:16<jdike:#uml>linux ubda=my-distro.iso
15:16<jdike:#uml>except it likely won't get past fsck because its fstab will name devices that UML doesn't have
15:18<ra12q:#uml>ok - so how do many get around this? the uml homepage does say uml can be used to try out new distros. ;)
15:19<jdike:#uml>fiddle fstab so the root device is /dev/ubda
15:20<jdike:#uml>that should be enough to get you bootd
15:20<jdike:#uml>booted
15:24<ra12q:#uml>cool
15:24<ra12q:#uml>will try
15:29<jdike:#uml>also stick a getty on tty0
