I've just about got everything ready to cut another iso. Ocilent is going to work up a new oci5 kernel using a different kernel scheduler so that usb hd drives can be booted. Ikrekes sent me a patch to the livecd-install to properly create the initrd for usb hd boot support. I plan on testing this today.
I ported drakxtools and a new drakconf from Mandriva and it seems to be working good. Scott Greeding will be back in 4-5 days and will help me get synaptic in, the menu structure better intergrated and a more sane layout.
Mozilla-Firefox was updated today to version 1.0.3. Im hoping it will fix dialup users problems with dns. I cant reproduce the problem so it is hard to fix something that isnt broken
Darin as worked up a Multimedia DVD based on Thac's rpms. I asked him to get with Darb to set up a bittorrent tracker for it.
Thac decided to start building RPMS for PCLinuxOS after some ass on the Cooker mailing list basically called his RPMS crap. I'm so glad to be on my own. That was the best decision I could have ever made!.
I have to say I'm enjoying interacting with the users of pclos. What a great bunch of people! Everyone that I've had the pleasure of talking to on irc or emailing has been so pleasant. I couldn't have been blessed with a better userbase.
Well back to building pclos. Have a great weekend.
