Linux Kernel Archives CD's

Mar 18, 1999, 17:42 (0 Talkback[s])

As posted to C.O.L.A.

Hi there.

This is to announce the general availability of the above CD's, as
follows

        Linux Kernel Archives Volumes 1 & 2

This is a two CD set containing all known Linux kernel release
tarballs from v0.01 through v2.1.83 that can still be found (or at
least, those that I have managed to find so far).

Note that a full list of kernel tarballs known to have been released
can be viewed at the following URL, which also contains payment
details:

        http://www.memalpha.cx/kernel.versions.html

Be warned in advance that the above document is around 150k in size,
and it does NOT contain any graphics images - its length is simply due
to the number of kernel tarballs and patch files that have been
released in the last eight years...

Please also note that volume 3 is NOT currently available, simply
because I don't currently have enough hard disk space to put it
together ready for burning, but I expect to remedy that situation in
mid-April...

Best wishes from Riley.
