because the colinux images are very old, i have decided to build one of my own, based on ubuntu 8.10. so, i followed this post, to create my colinux image. keep in mind installing ubuntu using qemu on windows takes ages (really, few hours, so schedule it to an hour before you go to sleep).

later, i just added another conf file to start this colinux, see more details on me previous post:

kernel=vmlinux
sda1="c:\linux\distro\ubuntu_8.10.ext3.3gb.img"
sda2="c:\linux\distro\ext3_disk_1gb.img"
sdb1="c:\linux\distro\swap_512mb"
root=/dev/sda1 fastboot 3
ro
mem=384
eth0=slirp
eth1=tuntap

moreover, i edited the network and samba, again, as i posted before. afterward i have installed erlang and yaws. finally, few fixes and tweaks i have encountered.

because i want it as a server:

$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-server linux-image-server linux-server

to solve and odd error message on startup (mmap: Bad address):

$ sudo apt-get remove dmidecode --purge

to prevent yaws, and few other services i don’t need to start after boot:

$ sudo update-rc.d -f bluetooth remove
$ sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove
$ sudo update-rc.d -f yaws remove

that’s it! if you got so far, you are now officialy an uber-geek ;)
