About the Images

Most images are exactly 8 MB in size and contain empty file systems. This allows them to be compressed for storage. The file template.image contains 8 MB of zeroes for easy setup of new images.

Read-only file systems use a collection of test files, contained in template-data.tar.gz. The collection currently includes a large text file and a hierarchy of several small files. The large text is a piece of classic German literature (downloaded from Project Gutenberg). The small files tree is the arch/alpha/boot tree of Linux 2.4.20.

A detailed list of images can be found in the README file.
