  • Randy Dunlap: Linux 2.4.x Initialization for IA-32 (2001-05-19 15:00:15)
    If you've ever wondered what goes on at boot during the time between when your BIOS hands things off to lilo and just before your first init script takes over, this article will be of interest to you. If you've never wondered about any of that, but you'd still like a printable sheet to help you sing along with your kernel as it starts, this is still interesting.

  • O'Reilly.net: A Response to Andrew Leonard on the Demise of Eazel (2001-05-19 13:50:01)
    We didn't link to a followup article by Andrew Leonard himself after his mope of a post-mortem on Eazel's fall because it seemed over-generous for what might have been a well-executed troll. We aren't even thrilled with the fact this article by Tim O'Reilly arrives in the form of a response to that. What piques our interest, however, is that next-to-last paragraph.

  • LinuxPlanet: DistributionWatch Review: Red Hat Linux 7.1 (2001-05-19 03:55:32)
    Figuring out what Red Hat is up to with each release can be a minor challenge: in past releases they've pushed the envelope with glibc and gcc while remaining conservative in other areas. Red Hat 7.1 is no different: with some up-to-the-minute additions and some surprising displays of conservatism, such as the exclusion of ReiserFS at install-time; and some pleasant new features, such as the inclusion of firewalling out of the box, Red Hat 7.1 is a curious blend. Brian Proffitt explains in our latest DistributionWatch review.
