I was happy to see that a new Hercules ready image is being prepared. I
have a question that is inspired by Mike Stramba's post to the Linux
email list and some exchanges I have had with him off list.
The startup script sets up the tun/tap driver for use by Hercules.
Mike's problem is he is using a hosted Linux solution and does not have
the required access to successfully use this script. Remembering that
this is really to help folks with limited Hercules and Linux experience
get Fedora up and running, can a "no network option" be provided that
eliminates this issue. I don't know how heavily this is tied to the
Maybe some simple words in a README would suffice. There might be other
reasons than Mike's for wanting to install Fedora under Hercules and
defer the network connectivity to later. People new to an environment
tend to not know what flexibility they really have and assume a failure
is a failure or not know how to easily get around the issue.
I am still very pleased that at least one distro is willing to support
Hercules directly. Thank you and keep up the great work.
while it is not a complete tree i think we should move the rawhide tree to the
fedora 12 location. it would be great if we could get some hercules images
based on it. We can then work to try get F-13 and F-14 started
I want to make sure that for all arches we release F-14 in the same month as
the primary arch is released.
There is plenty for people to do to get things moving forward. adding s390 31
bit builds has slowed things down.
I also wonder if we shouldn't make a 31 bit installer and kernel for fedora.
or is there really no demand for it?
