New document, code



I am pleased to announce a new document "The Ubuntu Mainframe Cookbook", and associated (lightly-tested) code.  There are still a few "Issues:", so consider it beta.

See the first list item under "Papers" on this page to access the PDF and the .tgz file:

It has a short section on planning, then one on how to set up a local Ubuntu "install server". It describes a manual install, and methods of customizing that system to become a "golden image". It describes and includes code on setting up a "first boot" script to customize a new clone. For the purists, there is also a section on the automated building of systems using "preseeding". It discusses some s390x-specifics such as the new chzdev command, z/VM EDEVs and directly-attached SCSI/FCP disks (for which there is an open issue).

If you want to go straight to the PDF, see:

As always, feedback is welcome.  Enjoy.
