Last change on this file since 323 was 323, checked in by bcornec, 15 years ago

Initial import of the documentation in SGML format.
Since the original SGML file and LyX files have not been published,
thus not preserved, I'll restart from scratch by importing the HTML
doc converted into SGML/DocBook.
Then real work begins ;-)

33<sect1 id="MINDILINU"><title>3.2. Mindi Linux</title>
34<para>Mindi Linux creates a set of boot/root floppy disk images
35that will let you perform basic system maintenance on your Linux
36distro. The principal virtues of Mindi's boot disks are the fact
37that they contain your kernel, modules, tools and libraries. You
38can ask for additional binaries (or other files) to be included on
39the kit. The libraries will be added for you.</para>
40<para>Whichever modules were loaded at backup-time, they are
41reloaded at boot-time. So, in theory, you will boot into almost the
42same environment as you were in when you backed up. If you want to
43add files to your Mindi boot disks, edit '&lt;INSTALLPATH OF
44MINDI&gt;/mindi/deplist.txt' and add the files to that list. The
45added files and dependencies, will be spread across the data disks
46at run-time.</para>
47<para>Mindi makes sure that Mondo has all the tools it needs at
48boot-time. Mondo uses fdisk, mkfs, cat, less, more, afio, gzip,
49bzip2, your keyboard configuration, your glibc libraries, your
50other libraries, your kernel, your modules, ... a lot! Mindi takes
51care of all that, so that Mondo can get on with the job of backing
52up or restoring your data.</para>
53<para>Mindi is also handy for making boot CDs/disks which stand on
54their own. You do not need Mondo. Indeed, if you like, you could
55use another backup/restore program with Mindi. Just add it to
56Mindi's dependency list (type 'locate deplist.txt' to find it).
57Mindi will include your software on its boot CD/disks the next time
58you run mindi.</para>
