Cooperative Linux - Debian Root File System Image
Posted on: 01/30/2004 04:51 AM

A Debian root filesystem image for Cooperative Linux has been released

Cooperative Linux is the first working free and open source method for optimally running Linux on Microsoft Windows natively. More generally, Cooperative Linux (short-named coLinux<!-- -->) is a port of the Linux kernel that allows it to run cooperatively alongside another operating system on a single machine. For instance, it allows one to freely run Linux on Windows 2000/XP, without using a commercial PC virtualization software such as VMware, in a way which is much more optimal than using any general purpose PC virtualization software.

Debian root filesystem:
This root filesystem can serve as a base for setting up a Debian system under coLinux. Please note that this file extracts to 1GB to provide enough space for packages on the block device. After successfully getting coLinux to boot from this root file system, you can run 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get install' for packages. The coLinux driver, kernel and program binaries will be released a few days from now along with instructions.
