Latest Fedora Core To Use?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello all, I've seen that the most recent version of Solaris (Express) has removed support for older SPARC machines, and Oracle's takeover has made Solaris/SPARC fairly dismal since no patches are being offered for free anymore and disallowed commercial use without a support contract. I guess it is time to ditch Solaris. I'd like to know what the latest version of Fedora Core I should be using. From the "Secondary Architectures/SPARC" wiki page (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/SPARC) it looks like it is "12-Beta". Is this correct? My main goal is to hack on the nouveau project to see if I can get a secondary PCI-based nvidia card to function with hardware accelerated OpenGL. Success on big-endian PPC has made me believe it is quite possible. I need fairly recent kernel/Xorg/DRM/DRI set to do this, so having recent tools/distribution is very helpful. Thanks, Patrick _______________________________________________ sparc mailing list sparc@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/sparc
