Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Loveland, Colorado -- 26 March 2002 -- Terra Soft Solutions,
Inc., the leading developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions
announces shipment of Yellow Dog Linux 2.2, the most mature and
complete PowerPC Linux distribution available.
Yellow Dog Linux 2.2 offers an array of improvements over v2.1
with the most advanced, stable release of the 2.4 kernel, improved
support for the Apple ADC monitors, and accelerated video. The
screen brightness and volume control buttons are now supported on
NewWorld ROM Apple PowerBooks and iBook computers. And while the
latest release of KDE is an appreciated improvement, Gnome has
taken a stunning leap forward --giving Mac OS X a run for its
money-- exceptional by all standards.
A few of the features are:
- Red Hat 7.2 based system
- 'ext3' graphical migration program
- XFree86 4.2.0, KDE 2.2.2, and Gnome 1.4 w/Nautilus &
- Improved modem & printer support
- Improved support for nVidia GeForce2 MX & ATI
Radeon--including ADC digital
With movement into high performance computing supported by the
release of Black Lab 2.0, YDL now offers 'HPC Node' as a package
selection, in addition to 'Base', 'Home/Office', 'Developer
Workstation', 'Server', and 'Everything' options.
"The means by which this latest YDL release came together
clearly demonstrates the cohesion and professional relationships
that have grown within the open source community. While our
in-house experience plays a significant role in the maturation of
YDL, the unified effort of the community continues to make YDL
possible. Many thanks to everyone who worked with us," states Dan
Burcaw, Terra Soft Solutions CTO.
