BLAG19999.00067, the most recent BLAG20000 alpha is being uploaded at this very moment. It includes lots more updates from Fedora and a number of other packages.

It's looking pretty good--it's what I'm using everyday now, without problems. I even upgraded my pretty whacked-out/overloaded laptop without any problems (!).

Fedora is still issuing quite a flood of errata. When they start to stabilize, we'll get closer to a BLAG20000 final.

Please take this thing for a test drive.

Do you think this version is safe to install? And when do we see BLAG 20000 go primetime?

I think this version is safe to install...well, within reason ;)

I think it's only appropriate for people that know apt-get and RPM very well and can resolve package problems I may introduce. I may revert to older versions, for example.

I'm kinda sitting around on 20k for awhile. How about when Fedora goes 3 weeks without an errata, then the ball will be back in my court? I mean, lets make 20k a stable release. :)

The alphas pretty much mean that I haven't polished them up how I want and the package list/versions are in flux. It's just too much to unload on newbies. But they're as stable, if not way more stable, than FC2 since they have all FC2 errata already.

Also, with alphas I haven't run a gamut of tests against them (e.g. updating a 10000 install, updating a 9002 install, do it like this, like that, & the other way...)

Removed items will make it to the repository (in all the cases I can think of).

-Jeff

Well I am downloading it now. I will install it on my laptop. One thing though. Will it be safe to go from BLAG19999.00067 direct to BLAG20000 using the upgrade? I am assuming yes but also figuring sometimes alphas undergo huge changes that mean complete reinstallations.

Ya, you should be able to go from 19999 to 20000 with some massaging.

Ok I tried to install the BLAG19999.00067 CD but it kept stopping at running /sbin/install for some reason. I have checked the md5sum of the ISO and it is perfect. I checked the various CD's also having burned two on Linux and one on Windows.

Bear in mind this is a laptop with Windows 2000 on it and BLAG10000 that has been upgraded from BLAG9002. Is that causing an issue you think with too many upgrades? I tried the linux mediacheck command and alas it still stops on running /sbin/install.

The problem is not too many upgrades.

I may have horribly broke something. Alphaalphaalpha.

Will check, if I find it foooo will roll a new rev.

Anyone else can confirm good/bad?

.00067 did have a new initscripts (due to ppp errata) that hasn't been fully tested by me.
