Fedora 12 was released this week. Unfortunately, due to
an increase in memory usage of anaconda the Fedora installer
program some special procedures are needed to install it
on the PS3.
I made a new howto note 'PS3 Fedora install HOW-TO' that
describes how to install Fedora on your PS3. It make take
some time to reach the mirrors though:
Please report any additional steps needed or problems faced
when installing to your system.
According to the login prompt of petitboot when I connect via telnet
if I set up a password using passwd, then the telnet access is switched off
and I can only access via ssh.
This is true until I reboot, and then the ssh login does not work
(I guess because the password has not been stored) and I can still logon via telnet.
As a side question, I have a small practical problem using ssh.
Basically the OS (i.e. Fedora) & petitboot both provide a ssh access.
My ssh client (on a laptop) complains that the public key of the same IP
changes between petitboot and Fedora and this could be a potential security risk.
It even goes by preventing all connections until I have removed the relevant line from .ssh/.kwon_hosts.
Any idea how to "improve" that?
The Fedora PPC secondary arch koji instance is up and running and finally
publicly accessible. You can find it here:
It should work with any existing FAS account.
At the moment, I have 3 builders running and a koji-shadow invocation running
almost constantly. It's a bit behind the dist-f12 tag, but not by too much.
Eventually I'll be switching to the dist-f13 tag. Staging the content will
be the next step.
I'd like to thank Dennis Gilmore for his exceptional help in getting this all
up and running.
