    Plex86 packages hit Sid
    by d00d on Tuesday, November 06 @ 10:41:30 GMT

    Plex86 packages have just appeared in Sid today! they have the following features:

    – automatic compilation and installation of the linux module

    – module loading handled by sysvinit scripts (/etc/init.d/plex86)

    – launcher script that passes config file to plex86 with the -f parameter

    – includes binary files for both X and curses. debconf interface asks for a choice.

    – using the free vgabios implementation (vgabios package)

    Sid users can apt-get them. If you’re in testing or stable, get them from http://packages.debian.org/unstable/misc/plex86.html, they should work fine too. Plex86 packages have just appeared in Sid today! they have the following features:
