|| ||Wed, 18 Feb 2004 17:04:50 -0500 (EST)|
A new community based Linux distribution, cAos, has been in the
works since early 2003, and is now available for general use.
18 Feb 2004
Today, cAos-1.0 was released on the http://caosity.org/ website.
cAos is a Linux distribution created by the community, for the
community. The purpose of the cAos project is to provide a stable
Linux solution for organizations and individuals that wish to use
Linux without the purchase of a support contract. cAos is focused
on becoming an enterprise-level community-produced distribution.
cAos uses the industry standard RPM package management system, with
the user friendly "yum" tool for updating and installing packages.
Many mirrors in the US and Europe are available, see:
Instructions for using the cAos installer, cinch, are available:
Notes about the 1.0 release:
All of the blocking/show-stopping bugs have been resolved, and many
of the developers are already using it in production. With that said,
keep in mind there are many packages outside of the core that are
still stabilizing (thus you may see frequent updates). Please post
bug reports to https://bugzilla.caosity.org/ so that they may be
resolved quickly and don't fall between the cracks.
