    New RedHat Linux beta - Roswell

    Hi,

    This just dropped in my mailbox this morning. <grin>

    Subject: Announcing a beta release of Red Hat Linux: Roswell
    Date: Thu, 2 Aug 2001 08:05:00 -0400
    From: Bill Nottingham <notting@redhat.com>
    To: redhat-watch-list@redhat.com


    It has come to our attention that rumors are floating regarding the appearance of a Red Hat Linux beta release, named ROSWELL. We would like to reassure you that there is nothing of the sort.

    No other object has been misidentified as a Red Hat Linux beta release more often than Rawhide. Rawhide was updated just recently. Reporters probably thought they saw something on an FTP site other than Rawhide, but we assure you, it was Rawhide.

    Reports cite that this supposed ROSWELL beta included 4 CDs of software, with such things as a 2.4.6 Linux kernel, XFree86 4.1.0, KDE 2.2pre, GNOME 1.4, and journaling file system support, and included support for both x86 and ia64.

    Were any such Red Hat Linux beta release to exist, it would not be recommended for use on mission-critical hardware, and any casualties due to data loss, mutation, swamp gas, radiation, or strange glowing lights with such a release would be scoffed at. Any problems or bugs with such a release would most likely be the effect of passing weather balloons. These problems would be reported at:

    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/

    However, there is no evidence to suggest the actual presence of a ROSWELL beta release. Those who claim otherwise would best not flaunt their naivete by telling anyone that they saw anything other than Rawhide.

    Documents pertaining to this supposed beta release are available at:

    ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/roswell/

    or check http://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html for a mirror near you.

    For more information on this sighting, send mail to:

    roswell-list-request@redhat.com

    with subscribe in the subject line. You can leave the body empty. Or see:

    LOL, actually they have just a good sense of humor , a new beta release and a mailing list for it. ;D
    Unfortunately they didn't include XFS support :-[ in the kernel, so I will just grab a few source rpms that a want too try and compile them for my 7.1 system.

    No XFS support eh? Strange....wonder if that was left out for a reason?

    They left it out because the XFS code has not been accepted by Linus. The rumors I have seen so far today is that the journaling filesystem support means ext3. reiserfs is in Redhat kernels, but it is not "officially" supported by Redhat. Meaning, "reiserfs is there, but use at your own risk."

    Right, but Linus hasn't chosen one, so he has included all....he is waiting for time to tell which one is the best to be included by default....

    Hi,

    Anyone playing with the source from printconf on Roswell READ THIS!. It dropped into my mailbox this morning.

    Okay, everybody.
    A warning. Do NOT try to install printconf using:

    make install

    DO NOT!!!

    I accidentally ported a little command over from the spec file during a
    cleanup of the make/spec files. It contains the following command in the
    install stanza:

    rm -rf $(DESTDIR)/

    this WILL TRASH YOUR BOX!

    anyone that wants to play with printconf, it is available from:

    passwd: anoncvs
    cvs -z6 -d server:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/rhl login
    cvs -z6 -d server:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/rhl co printconf

    cd printconf
    make archive
    rpm -ta printconf-$VERSION.tar.bz2
    rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/$ARCH/printconf-$VERSION-$RELEASE.$ARCH.rpm
