There have been several new developments in the Gentoo Linux front. First,
there is now a new version of Portage available, version 1.6.11. This version
supports conditional downloads based on USE variables, by using the following
syntax in SRC_URI:
SRC_URI="http://www.gentoo.org/foo.tbz2 openssl? http://www.gentoo.org/foo-openssl.patch.gz"
We also now have a new Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc6 release -- revision 10. The ISO
releases have been renamed so that they're "in-sync" with the .tbz2 releases to
ease confusion (what was going to be -r13.iso is now -r10.iso).
This new Gentoo Linux release includes:
* extensive improvements to the system initialization scripts
* kernel 2.4.10 with preempt, low-latency, ext3, LVM and ACPI patches applied
* an ISO with pcmcia-cs commands and modules included
You can grab the latest -r10 .tbz2 and .iso files at:
The latest, updated install instructions are available at:
Thanks to all developers and contributors for making this the best version of
Gentoo Linux yet, and enjoy!
