syslinux-legacy 2:3.63+dfsg-2ubuntu5 source package in Ubuntu


syslinux-legacy (2:3.63+dfsg-2ubuntu5) precise; urgency=low

  * This package is just for usb-creator, so strip down to only what
    usb-creator needs, i.e. syslinux and mbr.bin.  423KB vs. 48KB (on i386)
    is a noticeable difference.

syslinux-legacy: Bootloader for Linux/i386 using MS-DOS floppies

 SYSLINUX is a boot loader for the Linux/i386 operating system which operates
 off an MS-DOS/Windows FAT filesystem. It is intended to simplify first-time
 installation of Linux, and for creation of rescue and other special-purpose
 boot disks.
 It can also be used as a PXE bootloader during network boots.
