Description: Creates a virtual FAT12 file system in a single file.
 imagefs allows you to create a file on your hard disk (or any other
 drive) and treat it as if it were a floppy disk.  imagefs lets you
 copy files onto and delete file from this virtual floppy disk,
 install boot sector code, and display a directory of files on the
 virtual disk.
 imagefs is especially useful for testing bootable software with
 Bochs.  Instead of being forced to copy your files to a diskette
 every time you want a test run, you can now have bochs boot the
 image file instead.  This saves minutes every time you test.  Plus,
 you can include calls to imagefs in your makefile, thus automating
 the process.
 imagefs was developed for use in the development of the Slikware
 operating system.

Subject: Removed imagefs from unstable
Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 16:38:45 -0400
We believe that the request you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

   imagefs |     1.03-5 | source, alpha, arm, hppa, hurd-i386, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

Reason: RoQA; orphaned; NPOASR

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are never removed from testing by hand.  Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to the just-closed bug (or by
replying to this mail if there is no bug closed).

a problem with it please contact the archive administrators by mailing
