Announcement   Announcement : Debian Jessie's Girl AmigaOne Linux installer with USB and online installers
   posted by Hypex on 18-Jun-2018 8:01:42 (723 reads)
In February we saw the long awaited release of the AmigaOne Debian Jessie Linux Install CD. Both from those who desired a modern Linux installer on their AmigaOne and from myself as well as Geri where we spent years putting it together.


Although the original AmigaOne machines are getting on now and getting a bit slow, the AmigaOne Linux installer has features that are unprecedented on the platform for any Linux installer and even now still unmatched by Linux installers on modern AmigaOne branded hardware.




Featuring an autobooting, full install CD, with boot menu, simplified install process, boot volume checker, progress dialogues, AmgaOne kernel installer and boot menu all added in the package.


But now we've gone not only one further but two further. As well as the full install CD I also built a net installer CD. This is a tiny ISO image that can be used to boot the installer and will install Linux from the internet.


On top of this, there is now a USB booter, just like in the big Linux distros. Both the full and net installer images are hybrid ISO9660 images which can be written to either an optical disc or USB stick. And booted off either! Using the same autoboot process. It doesn't get much easier then that.


While we can't do much about the speed of the installer. We can make it easier for you to install as we have done here. Check out the forum for full details of the installer release and instructions.

that's great news for A1-SE/ XE users that want to use Linux and a testament to their durability to still be running ok after all the early hardware issues

Wow! Thats really awesome! I wish there was a Pegasos 2 version... peg linux support wss excellent when Genesi was around.

At the developer: looks like it would be easy to do a pegasos 2 one what would it take?

@realize

The Pegasos, much like the X1000 and beyond is a totally different hardware set up and firmware. Machines using amigaboot.of aren't as easy to deal with. This installer makes use of the Linux booting support in SLB which the Pegasos doesn't have. And I don't know how to create a loader or kernel files that could be hooked into the Kicklayout to have the same effect.

However, unlike the AmigaOne machines, the Pegasos had official Debian support. Even now, there are files on the official install CD, that allow it to boot on a Pegasos machine. But I haven't tested it either so I don't know if the later ones still work.

You could give it a test:
