Hello everybody, I guess there is no need to wait any longer. :) Yes, Alpha Core 2 (Tosia) is available! It is based on the Fedora Core 4 source tree. Main features of this release: - gcc 4.0 with working java - all packages are build with gcc 4.0 - most java packages - Eclipse IDE - Fixed autopartitioning and update mode during setup - framebuffer driver for TGA video adapters works Known issues: - SMP kernel doesn't work (someone could try older AC1 kernel)- java interpreter (gij) could generate UAE (unalligned access exceptions) during run of java code - gcc could generate code that will produce UAEs. This is due bad coding practices. :)
- AS800 still requires disconnect of network cable in order to boot The AC2 is expected to boot on most modern Alphas. :) I would like to say thanks to all who waited for this release. Special thanks to: - Cristan Balint for support, help, testing and ftp hosting. - Jay Estabrook for support, help, testing, patches - Jon Norstog for donating PWS - RedHat for keep going and accepting patches for alpha The iso images are available at: ftp://ftp.rdsor.ro/pub/Linux/Distributions/AlphaLinux/core/2.0/iso/I would suggest to wait a little bit until images will be available from other (faster) sources.
