Fedora Unity releases updated Fedora 9 Re-Spin
Posted on: 07/21/2008 03:55 PM

The Fedora Unity Project has released new ISO Re-Spins (DVD) of Fedora 9.

These Re-Spin ISOs are based on the officially released Fedora 9 installation media and include all updates released as of July 18th, 2008. The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures via Jigdo starting Sunday, July 20th, 2008 (or, "right now").

We were unable to include CD Image sets this time, due to problems we are experiencing ordering the packages and sorting them amongst the different discs in the set. A default installation would have required all discs.

With this particular Re-Spin though, we address the following problems:

- #445517, Anaconda crashed during selecting packages (installation mode); Translation of plural in Russian made anaconda fail during the selection of packages, if the installation was done in Russian
- #445974, minstg2 installs fail - missing /usr/sbin/lspci

We would like to give a special thanks to the following for testing this respin within 2 days

- Harley-D Dana Hoffman Jr
- zcat Jason Farrell
- Sonar_Guy Scott Glaser
- Southern_Gentleman Ben Williams
- kanarip Jeroen van Meeuwen

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with the chance to install Fedora with recent updates already included. These updates might otherwise comprise more than 1.91 GByte of downloads for a full install, and an additional 265.69 MByte for pulled in dependencies.

This is a community project, for and by the community. You can contribute to the community by joining our test process.

A full list of bugs, packages and changelogs that have been updated in this Re-Spin can be reviewed on:
