Mageia 2 Puppy released Sub_title: Mageia 2 released, Mageia 3 in design and woof build problems
Please note that Mageia 2 has been released and is quite a nice system with gstreamer and a lot of updated packages beyond what a puppy user could want. It has both X86-64 and i586 versions in it's tree.
What was in Mageia's cauldron directories while mageia 2 was in development has been moved to the '2' directories and a clean (empty) cauldron created throughout, this will be used for the initial development of Mageia 3. Only the home servers will contain Mageia 3 Cauldron packages (pre-alpha) at this time. Mageia 3 is due out in 9 months!
Mageia 2 uses Kernel 3.3.6, and the matching kernel-headers, both of which in pet format can be found on my servers under the puppy mage directory for those who want to build. All packages were rebuilt under this kernel so may not work undre earlier ones.
Woof users will need to ammend their path configurations from 'cauldron' to '2' until barry ammends woof again!
Warning! I have found quite a number of changes are needed for mageia 2 to be built in woof2, and are going through it all at the moment and compiling a list at this stage. It shall appear under this topic when completed. Fixes will follow. _________________ Puppy T290 - BarryK's Racy but with T2 Version 9.0 is under development.
