Meeting Pearls Vol. I
and many others
Meeting Pearls Vol I is a new CD for the Amiga, which is
available at a price of 19.80 DM (about $13 US).
Below follows a small list of some of the CD's contents:
- About 150 Fractals with about 256 colors each in very high
- Many Pictures of our German Amiga Meeting, with some texts
about each picture, describing which persons you can see.
- NetBSD for the Amiga, in archived form, but with a lots of
very useful installation descriptions.
- PasTeX, completely installed, additionally with fonts for
Fax and 600 dpi printers.
- Amok disks 98 to 106
- Many, many installed programs, ready to click and run!
- More than 40 MB of files from various CDs
- DaggeX - ready to run
- About 6 MB HTML pages
- Many games, animations, sounds, ...
The CD has an installation script which allows you to
choose your favourite ASCII reader and your favorite universal
picture viewer. People with graphics boards can of course
enter the viewer for their graphics card and view the pictures
in high resolution in the many colors available to them.
Some CDROM filesystems (at least the Commodore
CDFileSystem) have problems if you choose a reader or viewer
program which is contained on the CD. In such a case, you can
choose any reader or viewer program from your harddisk and
everything should work fine.
The installation script also allows you to copy some
directories from CD to your harddisk. Since the plain ISO
filesystem cannot save Amiga protection flags or Amiga comments
you can copy any directory with our installer script from CD to
your harddisk. The included script will recover those flags
and comments after it successfully copied the specified
directory tree. Of course, this will slow down the copy
process, but having original Amiga protection flags on your
harddisk should be worth it. i.e. All those pure flags and
script flags can be recovered. This is probably the first
Amiga CD with such a mechanism.
Meeting Pearls Vol. I runs on any Amiga with a working
CDROM drive, but if you still have Kickstart 1.2 or Kickstart
1.3, you will have some problems and a lot of programs
contained on the CD won't run on your system. We did our best
trying to maintain compatibility but we do recommend at least
OS 2.04 or greater. We also recommend additional ram if you
wish to view all those nice pictures on the CD. But many other
things will still work with 512 KB or so. A graphics board
also is very useful, but not required.

You may make as many copies for private use and may also
give them to your friends. But you must not reproduce the CD
and then sell it without the written licence of the author.
The CDs low price was made possible by the creaters of
this CD (me and some other people who are crazy enough to spend
a lot of time and effort to make a cheap Amiga CD) who worked
for free and did not request any money for the creation of this
CD. If you buy such a CD, you only pay the people who mastered
the CD as well as the dealers. You neither pay the authors of
the programs nor the creators of this CD.
Thus we, the creators of this CD, ask for a small donation
from everybody who likes the compilation of the CD. Nobody is
forced to give any extra money. Meeting Pearls Vol. I is the
first CD under the new concept of the sharecompilation. If you
want to get more information about this concept, you may get an
information text from walhalla.ira.uka.de (188.8.131.52), file
/sharecompilation/info.txt, which tells you more about the
