Users. If you're genuinely concerned, lend a hand to help ensure the
listing is kept up-to-date.

news on my KDE news ticker on my 4-5 month old RedHat
8.0 instalation... wha't is that suposed to mean? Do I live
in the future or freshmeat are adding RedHat to their
directory now? Infact how do ya get info about new

You will want to check out http://www.auroralinux.org. It is a port of RedHat 7.3 by Spot to the Sparc/Sparc64 platform.

Build 0.3 of Aurora is out now with full KDE 3.0, Kernel 2.4.18 (if on a Sparc64) and so forth.. Anaconda hasn't been fully ported as it claims on the website, but you can still create your own boot cdrom with packages and manually install it.

I am also working on a LinuxFromScratch derived Linux Distro for Sparc64 (It willl run on a Sparc but I don't have one to test kernels on). Some time in the next few weeks I expect to release a bootable manual install cdrom for both ix86 and Sparc64.

http://www.fdragon.org if you want to follow the joys and pains of the thing.

I've had no problem compiling 2.4.x on a RH7 box,
but I haven't tried 7.1beta yet.
