Subject: Announcing release of complete sabotage ARM v4tl and v6l rootfs tarballs

uploaded complete armv4tl and armv6 rootfs tarballs to



both ~150 MB.
they were bootstrapped from on 
aboriginal system images in qemu, and took several days to compile.

they include all packages (butch install world). so X11 (Xfbdev) could 
theoretically work.
kernel is not included, as there's no "generic ARM kernel".
you can remove unwanted packages by deleting the appropriate directories 
in /opt/$package_name, and the symlinks from there to /.
filelists are available in /src/filelists for convenience, those could 
be used to remove symlinks automatically.

to test it in qemu it should be possible to extract the prebuilt 
aboriginal kernels, and use them from the qemu command line.
afaik the rootfs has to be put into an image file (ext3-formatted) to be 
usable from qemu.
maybe i'll try this myself, and if successful i'll put bootable qemu 
packages online for download.
