Sine Nomine is proud to announce version 2.3 of LXFMT is available for download. This version is a substantial rework of how disk geometry handling and volume formatting occurs, which should adapt better to new DASD types and be a bit more resilient to odds-and-ends that used to break things in unpredictable ways.
This package contains a CMS utility to format and/or partition disks
for Linux use. The package can be downloaded here.
For ECKD disks the label and VTOC tracks are in OS format and are the
same as created by the DASDFMT Linux command. The partitioning
information in the VTOC is the same as the information created by the
FDASD Linux command.
For FBA disks the label and VTOC blocks are in DOS/VSE format.

In the tradition of releasing something nifty to the community as a holiday gift (the subject line is the historical reference to the annual posting of such gifts to the venerable VMSHARE conference from long, long ago), SNA is pleased to provide two gifts to the community for 2013.
