[Fwd: Updated Fedora Core test release: Severn]

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


If I'm reading this correctly at:


Then it sounds like this may be a way for RedHat to split having to support the sort of "hacker" part of the OS from the "business" side of the OS. That is, by creating the Fedora Project they can push off the support of the little guy to other "open source" people and then have their developers/support concentrate on core business, like servers.

Am I reading this right?

  We're tired, we're droopy

  (And now our song is done.)
Yes, it's an update of SEVERN, the Fedora Core test release.

As always, test releases are not intended for use on production
environments. Use of test releases in production environments could
lead to disastrous results, such as spontaneous musical theatre
from your engineers. Be afraid.

Problems with SEVERN should be reported via bugzilla, at:


Please report bugs against 'Fedora Core', release 'test2'.

Technical note: There are some issues with the SMP kernel; on
 SMP machines after installation, you may need to boot the
 uniprocessor kernel for stability. We'll have a fixed kernel
 in the next day or three; please update as soon as one
 is available.

For more information on just what the Fedora Project and
Fedora Core is, please see:
