Text Copyright (c) 2005 The Jackass! Development Team.


The Jackass! Development Team is proud to announce the
Official Release of The Jackass! Toolkit for Gentoo 2005.0.



The Jackass Penguin Spheniscus demersus is a flightless seabird that is indigenous to the coast of southern Africa. It has been named after a donkey because of the loud, braying noise that it makes.

>> Click Here for Image <<


The Jackass! Project is named in honor of the Jackass Penguin and was conceived to create a set of unofficial installation media (Bootable Installation CD's and Stage 3 Tarballs) for the 2005.0 release of Gentoo Linux. These stages are based upon Bob P's Stage 1/3 Installation Method and have been optimized for various sub-architectures using the GCC 3.4.3 toolkit compiled from the bottom up with Native Posix Threading Library support. Currently, Jackass! Installation CD's are available for the following sub-architectures:

Code:

Intel x86:

    * Pentium
    * Pentium MMX
    * Pentium Pro
    * Pentium II
    * Pentium III
    * Pentium IV

AMD x86:

    * Athlon-XP



To download Jackass!, please visit our web site at: http://jackass.homelinux.org.

Just for the purpose of clarification, "The Jackass! Project for Gentoo 2005.0", "The Jackass! Toolkit", "The Jackass! Development Team", and The Jackass! Project website at http://jackass.homelinux.org are not affiliated with "Linux for Jackasses" or its website at http://www.jackasslinux.com.

It seems that both of these projects based their name on the Jackass Penguin, which was coincidental.

I've ordered a epia wich should be in monday, after a day or two compiling gentoo on it.
I might set up a european mirror.

If you need a mirror I can provide a west-coast USA mirror, just email jim@psunit.com I can handle a pretty big load, currently mirror DSL and other projects.. This project looks cool, and it looks like I might be able to do some installs on not-so-fast systems i thought i'd demote to trash :) Thanks.

yes, one of the main benefits of the Jackass! toolkit is that it allows you to install a fast, modern toolkit on the older boxes that can benefit from it the most. a pentium box with Jackass! running on it is alot faster than you might think! :!:

Nice work, looks like my p133 is getting a reinstall :wink:

Oh, and the pdf install guide is exactly what i've been looking for anyway, even for a normal gentoo install. Much more concise than the online handbook.

Sweeeeeet.... Don't have to spend extra hours compiling on new systems. And maybe I can convince a couple friends to try it out. :D

Good job guys!

I like the idea that I compiled your system, and the systems of hundreds of others on my processor. It's a pretty cool feeling. :) I'm sure it's one all the guys who built tarballs share.

I think you should make the installation guide in html version as well coz people cant follow the installation guide if they use 'links' from the bootup cd.

i had already considered that and decided against it. if you don't want to use the PDF and you want to view an html document in links, just use the gentoo installation handbook for a Stage 3 tarball. :idea:

I'm going to reinstall my system with it. But I'll try to install it from knoppix, normally it shouldn't give any problems (I hope so :D )

the tarball behaves just like a Gentoo Stage 3 tarball, so if you've familiar enough with installing under knoppix to do a regular Stage 3 install under knoppix, you should be fine. the only real difference is that we don't support installation via knoppix. :wink:

I've just installed it from knoppix without any problems.
Now I need only to emerge the remaining packages like xorg and so...

Exactly how safe is installing the tarball into an existing system? I've a couple of AMD-K6-2s sitting around, one of them (dagon) already running Gentoo. I'm currently in the process of rebuilding the toolchain on an athlon-xp box (cthulhu) and I (hopefully) expect to recompile world on that box piece by piece using the new chain when updates come along. Unfortunately, really big compile-orgies on "cthulhu" are out of the question, as my fso relies on it for her everyday dose of internet...

Also and severely OT, I need other lovecraftian names for the next couple of boxen I want to set up. "nyarlathotep"? "pickman"? I think "shub_niggurath" would be a bit over the top...
Yes 8O I am a slightly disturbed man... :P

No kidding. :wink: . I think just untarring the Jackass! tarball onto your existing system would probably cause a good bit of trouble. I think your better off putting your toe to the line and just recompiling all your packages as per the stage 1/3 install. On an athlon-xp, I don't think it will take that long to do, and you could always set the MAKEOPTS variable in /etc/make.conf to -j1 and preserve some processing power for your fso at the cost of increased compile time.

Actually, what you're suggesting is pretty much what I'll do with the cthulhu-box. Toe's at the line already and even using -j2 for my makeopts, kde is quite useable - typing on it right now. No, it's dagon, I wanted to try the tarball-extract on, but given that that's a no-go, I may just decide to setup distcc or somesuch drivel (which I inexplicably dread, being such a 14M0r n00b), or do a stage3 clean install.

But enough of that OT-stuff already :oops: Back to your regular programming. :lol:

Why so many install cds?
Why don't you simply put one stage3-xxx-tar.bz2 online for each arch?
I really like to download just the stage file and do the install from any minimal live cd (or anything else i like).

Anyway cds are fine, but they should be something more. The stage file is the "good thing" in this project.
Thank you guys.
