t-break: ABIT Introduces Gentus Linux: Linux, The ABIT WAY!Feb 21, 2000, 23:57 (7 Talkback[s])
"ABIT, famous for quality products that deliver powerful performance for a fantastic value, is now releasing their own Linux package, Gentus? a distribution customized for ABIT's Hardware, "Free From ABIT and Free From Worry!" exclaims ABIT?s PR manager Jeremy Smith. The ABIT Gentus package features the latest stable kernel with full native support for multi-processing, and drivers and patches all together. "With Gentus we have really gone out of our way to make it easy to set up and install. Specifically we have added direct support for UDMA/ATA/66 drivers so that you can install directly to an ATA/66 drive, with a fixed driver and driver optimizations for UDMA66," explains ABIT's Smith. "Previously, users had to first install in the ATA/33 mode then later switch over to the ATA/66 channel. With our software enhancements to the Linux kernel that has all been obviated and the process is much more smooth."
"With ABIT's Gentus there is even auto recognition of ABIT motherboards to suggest which pre-built kernels a user might want to install in X-WIN GUI mode such as KDE OR GNOME. Many software distributions only offer one of those. Software RAID that is compatible with UDMA/66 IDE is supported and is directly installable to and bootable from RAID at the setup menu of the 1st CD. Gentus' also features flexible HD partitioning and pre-configuration as well as the afore mentioned installation to IDE drive on UDMA/66 from a bootable CD."
