Because I wanted to give some colleages the simple opportunity to play a little with the Xemu emulator, I had build a bootable ISO image.
I used Xubuntu, build the Xemu from the github site, used the command "make roms" for getting the needed ROMs, loaded the latest draft of the Mega65 manual, configured xmega65 for autostart and deactived network (just to make the enviroment as "save" as possible). Build an bootable ISO image (2 GB big) from this whole system, so it can easily be copied to DVD or USB stick.
Using such a DVD or USB stick allows you to boot nearly every "modern" PC or laptop (who have at least 2 GB RAM and can handle 64bit systems) with it and use xmega65 or xc65 without any knowledge of "how to install and configure" it. It also works fine in virtual environment such e.g. Virtualbox. Just "stick and play".
I just thought why not use a filehoster and upload the 2GB ISO file for the use and fun of other people interested in the Mega65? This would be an "undangerous" way to get a first look into the Mega65 (emulator).
But upps, I just had forgotten something ... Xubuntu is open source (GNU GPL), Xemu is open source (GNU GPL), the Mega65 manual draft is open source (as the whole Mega65 project), but the "damn" C65 ROM is not open source.
Okay, before I send myself or the Mega65 team into prison :
Does the deal with Cloanto about the C65 ROM include a distribution of such an ISO image as decribed above or could that be a legal problem?
