Ok I've been promising something for a few days now.
And the verdict! We'll it still isn't quite ready.
The latest 2.4.0 version of the kernel has problems with python
but then doesn't everybody :-) :-).
For anybody who is just dying to get their system up and running
XFS only, have put the a version of the iso image on oss.
Note the kernels installed will be based on 2.4.0-test11, which was
not a very stable release, I recommend updating to a newer kernel.
I will put our latest rpm out on oss also.
Note this has not been tested on many machines... ok two and
it fails on one. :-( The initrd fails to build at install time, this
to be a problem with the loop device code in the install kernel.
I am hoping the 2.4.0 kernel fixes the problem, soon as I get past the
This images is a good candidate for your CD-RW or the 50 for a $1 type
The good news: if the install works it is fairly trivial to upgrade to
the latest kernel.
Ohh Ya this CD only contains updated rpm images, you will need
a copy of the RedHat 7.0 disk 1 and 2 to actually do the install.
Please forward and success our way.
I'm sure there will be failures minds as well send them also.
Also note the images for floppy installs are on the CD, but don't bother
trying them... they don't work.
