       t-rex  -  create  TFTP  bootable  ECOFF images for DECstations with REX


       /usr/bin/t-rex -k kernel -r ramdisk [-l loader] [-o outfile]


       t-rex creates a bootable ECOFF image for a DECstation from a kernel  in
       ELF  format  and a (compressed) ramdisk image. After the image has been
       booted, the t-rex loader moves kernel and ramdisk to their  appropriate
       memory  locations  and  starts  the  kernel  with  the  ramdisk as root
       filesystem. This is done by providing the kernel with the ramdisk start
       address  rd_start=  and the ramdisk size rd_size= as kernel commandline

       Kernels generated from the Debian kernel-patch-*-mips  package  support
       this way of parameter passing, upstream kernels might need a patch.


       -k kernel
              The ELF kernel image to use.

       -r ramdisk
              The gzip-compressed ramdisk image to use.

       -l loader
              The  loader  binary  to  use  in creating the image. The default
              loader is /usr/lib/delo/t-rex-loader.

       -o outfile
              The name of the ECOFF image to create. Without  this  parameter,
              the resulting image is output on stdout.
