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.
The ELF kernel image to use.
The gzip-compressed ramdisk image to use.
The loader binary to use in creating the image. The default
loader is /usr/lib/delo/t-rex-loader.
The name of the ECOFF image to create. Without this parameter,
the resulting image is output on stdout.
