Pretty nice live distribution, usable as what-if and rescue disk if you run Solaris x86 …

Early Distributions, Feb 1994 Linux (all distributions with the Sunsite Archive)

leave a comment »

Before this time I used only floppy distributions, mostly 0.97 and 0.99, I even found a 0.50 kernel rescue disk.

Don’t have any more 1992-1993 floppies around, there may be somewhere overseas.

Anyhow, here the content of the CD: (at the time had one of these running as gateway between dial-in lines and dial-out to the Internet):

/pub/Linux/distributions (INDEX)
——————————————————————————
Distribution-HOWTO@      information on the various linux distributions
MCC/                     The MCC interim distribution (small!)
TAMU/                    The Texas A&M easy to install Linux system (mirrored)
TransAmer/               stuff on/about the TransAmeritech Linux CD
debian/                  The debian distribution
je/                      japenses extensions from colias.tutics.tut.ac.jp
package.list.tar.Z       list of files in the SLS distribution
