Hello, We have released the first Alpha release of Scientific Linux 6. This first release installs and works. The release is at http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/6rolling/ DVD and Net Install downloads are at http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/6rolling/i386/iso/ http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/6rolling/x86_64/iso/ KNOWN ISSUES: Packages that haven't been built, and aren't in the release. Ruby ekiga foomatic guile hivex kdepim-runtime linuxdoc-tools perl-GSSAPI perl-Sys-Virt perl-Test-MockObject python-sqlalchemy TurboGears2 virt-top We do not have all of the updates that RedHat has released. We do have some, but not all. Currently the installer says there is only a "minimal" install available at the package selection. But if you go into "Customize now" is shows that a normal desktop install is selected. We plan on fixing this. There are no specialized pictures shown during the install. Just the one that you see through the whole time. We are attempting to get this fixed. CHANGES PLANNED FOR ALPHA 2 We are planning on SL6 Alpha 2 to be released next friday - 10 December Expected Updates for Alpha 2 - Ruby will be in the release - Release Notes will be better - revisor will have all the patches and config files for people to start building their own sites. - Hopefully all of the rest of the trouble rpm's will be in the release.
