ATrpms for FC5/i386 and FC5/x86_64
Posted on: 03/21/2006 07:32 AM

An announcement from Axel Thimm:

ATrpms is officially launching Fedora Core 5 support for i386 and x86_64.

http://ATrpms.net/dist/fc5/

o The actual download location is http://dl.atrpms.net/. Mirrors are listed at http://atrpms.net/mirrors/

o "stable", "testing" and "bleeding", the three subrepos per distribution are not cumulative inclusive on the server side. E.g. you need to add "stable" for "testing", and both "stable" and "testing" for "bleeding".

o Some kmdls (notably non-GPL kmdls like nvidia and madwifi) will not work properly with the currently released kernel due to the missing print_tainted export. Future kernels will have this fixed, and kmdl support for non-GPL modules will work again.

o Support for swsusp2 on FC5 has been contributed by Matthias Hensler (http://mhensler.de/swsusp/). kmdl support is underway.

ATrpms is a 3rd party general purpose package repository. It currently supports

o FC5/i386, FC5/x86_64, FC4/i386, FC4/x86_64 FC3/i386, FC3/x86_64, FC2/i386, FC2/x86_64, FC1o RHEL4/i386, RHEL4/x86_64, RHEL3/i386, RHEL3/x86_64
o RH9, RH8.0 and RH7.3

ATrpms support for some of these distribution will soon go EOL.
