The description of how to install Fedora on hercules is incorrect in various
ways. In the download instructions it says to get 5 files from a particular
directory, but only two of them actually exist, so either the other files should
be provided or the instructions changed to reflect the current situation.
I presume that hercules-run is supposed to be a script, but such a thing doesn't
exist in the current rpm package, so again this needs to be changed.
> rpm -qpl hercules-3.04.1-4.fc6.i386.rpm | grep hercules-run
hercules-run is in sbin as it needs to be run by the superuser to be able to
set up the network
Thanks for the help earlier. I had indeed missed hercules-run when I installed
the thing, although that wasn't actually the problem.
What I needed to know was to set the ARCHMODE to ESAME rather than leaving it at
the default which would be a useful addition to the README.fedora instructions.
This allowed RHEL-5 to boot.
My comments about the location of the Fedora boot files though, still stand.
Well, I wrote those quick bits of "documentation" when I was playing with
hercules myself. Things were current at the timee, but obviously got outdated...
Patches welcome! :-)
Now that Fedora has merged Core and Extras, and that no rebuilds are no longer
being done for s390, I guess the Fedora specific instructions should be removed
from the docs.
I'll try out a RHEL-5 install and update the documentation where needed.
I've updated the Fedora development (F8) package to remove the Fedora specific
instruction and add the required config change to ESAME for the s390x distros.
No need for a Fedora 7 update just for this, though.
