Site maintenance

Hi there,

The site will be mostly unavailable tomorrow Saturday the 18 November from 8h30 am to 11h30 am GMT+1. We have some hardware and software maintenance scheduled on our server.

BTW, we are testing the new 2006.2 fat version and we're getting closer to a release so stay tunned.

New developer and progress

Recently, Zero_Chaos from aircrack-ng teamed up with us and joined the pentoo development effort.

He is literally making the kernel happy with all the wifi drivers and patches.

So, to update the previous statement, we were sleeping but he is now here to kick our asses and push pentoo to the max...

Still around

We're not dead, we're just sleeping...

Actually i have a lot of stuff to do in the real world but I'm still working on pentoo. I n fact, I'm more working on the catalyst version atm but i still expect to throw out a beta sometime in the near future.

For the catalyst version, i made a little program that should generate the e17 menu automagically.

Stay tuned

MacBook Pro booted on pentoo

I just had the opportunity to test pentoo on a MacBook pro and i can tell that it boots to e17 without problem and really fast, thanks to the intel core duo!

The wifi is detected as a an atheros adapter and the ati chip is working well with X11. The only thing i did not test was the sound

Catalyst and pentoo

I was finally able to understand the catalyst process correctly, thanks to this howto done by Lucas Casagrande.

I've also started to do another install of gentoo, this time for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu...

Meanwhile, i've done some testing of the fat 2006.1 SMP and after some compilations done i can tell that unionfs is pretty stable.

Upcomming 2006.1 Fat version

I've rebuilt the kernel to include SMP and HT support. I'll have to test out the unionfs 1.2 to see if it's stable enough.

Meanwhile, I've started to write down some ideas for the future pentoo versions that'll be done with catalyst.

I'm going into vacations from the 5 to the 20 august so don't expect news until then.
