Fedora Unity releases Fedora Core 5 Live-Spin ISO images

Official Fedora Live images are something we all have been looking forward to seeing in the Fedora Community. Kadischi will be the tool to create such live images. Fedora Unity has recently joined forces with Kadischi to help provide testing and to release live images which we are calling "Live-Spins."

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of a new Live-Spin CD and DVD ISO image of Fedora Core 5. These Live-Spin ISOs are based on Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of August 21st, 2006. They are available for the i386 architecture via BitTorrent starting Monday, August 28th, 2006 via BitTorrent.

The Fedora Core 5 CD image features a 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 kernel and GNOME 2.14.1, along with applications such as xchat, gftp, OpenOffice.org 2.0.3, and other utilities. The DVD image includes roughly "everything but the kitchen sink."

Also available at this time are "pristine" FC6T2 Live ISO images from the initial FC6T2 release.

The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora Community to bring quality solutions to the Community. Project members want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the Community. Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project contributors and interested users.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Live-Spin task to provide the Community with the chance to test Fedora Core with recent updates in a Live Media environment. This is a Community project, for the Community and by the Community. You can contribute to the Community by seeding the torrent after your download has completed or by joining the test process.

The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often. New Live-Spins are provided early each month during the life of each Fedora Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy. Early snapshots are taken mid-month to start testing. Final snapshots will be taken about a week before the release. All released ISO images are tested to ensure the quality that the Fedora community expects. If you are interested in helping with the testing or seeding efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team. Contact information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/.
