|| ||GNU-Darwin 7th year report|
|| ||Mon, 10 Dec 2007 22:16:10 -0500 (EST)|
In case you missed it, these stories below have gone out into the wild
now. We have had a surge in pkg_add access to our package repository
since that time, indicating that GNU-Darwin is far from dead as of yet
;-}. The iPhone bricking story was of particular moment.
In honor of this occasion, I am announcing a revamp of our pkg_add
system, so that 'pkg_add -r' should be working consistently for both the
ppc and the x86 platform. If you have any questions about that, be
sure and ask.
Work on our AMD Phenom Quad server, darwintel, continues so that we have
a current version of the website, SpamAssassin, and squirrelmail there.
The latest version of coreutils from ftp.gnu.org compiled beautifully
and very fast, but if you try it, be sure and exclude the su utilities.
This machine is expected to be exceptional for package development.
In contrast to Apple, which is distributing non-free and unusable
versions of Darwin OS, we are committed to FOSS, and will be on this
horse for as long as it will stand.
As a reminder, GNU-Darwin will observe moratorium day by redirecting
our home page on December 21st, see below.
