Hi there.

> This is to announce the release of version 1.0.1 of the knl package,
> which is a replacement for the rdev, swapdev, rootflags, ramsize and
> vidmode programs, and allows all of the kernel image options to be set
> with just one run of the program.

> This version adds the ability to specify the use of a remote NFS root
> partition, and also includes a few minor tweaks to the code to ease
> future development, but no bugfixes were needed since no bugs were
> found (a situation that makes me VERY nervous).

> This package is available as both source and i386 RPM's from the URL
> specified below:


> The files required are:

> knl-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm - x86 family binary and manpage.
> knl-1.0.1-1.src.rpm - Source with Makefile and manpage.

> In addition, these RPM's have been uploaded to RedHat's incoming
> directory, and will hopefully appear thereon in the near future.

In response to the above announcement, I have had no less that 17
private emails asking that I make it available as a *.tar.gz file,
with more arriving each day, so I have now done so. The following file
can now also be found at the same URL, and unlike previous uploads of
gzip'd files, this one has been confirmed as extracting OK...

The file you'll want is as follows:

knl-1.0.1.tar.gz - Tarball of source, manpage and Makefile

Please note that this announcement is a one-off, and all future
versions of this or any other programs I write will include all three
versions as standard...

Best wishes from Riley.
