The November release of Kevin's RedHat Uber Distribution (KRUD) is now available (yes, we're still saying "Redhat" :-)). Every month Kevin merges in the latest and greatest errata (those which aren't totally broken anyway) into a standard RedHat distribution (currently version 6.0).

This will probably be the last 6.0-based release, as RedHat 6.1 is getting dangerously close to installing on our test machines. Most of the 6.1 issues have been installation-related (either it doesn't install at all for you, or it works great). We have a 6.1 KRUD in testing right now, but don't feel it's yet ready for distribution.

What ever will you do with the time you save not having to find, download, and apply the latest errata to your newly-installed system? "FreeCIV" and "PySol" are included as possible answers to just that question. Updates/Extras now number over 170 packages (see web site for exact package list).

Updates/Extras Include: Mesa, PyPAM, XFree86, aalib, acroread, apmd CD-ROM burning and MP3 tools, EPIC, freeciv, TrueType Fonts and TT Font Server, glade, gtk+, GNOMEhack, kernel, lftp, Matt's Traceroute, Pilot-link, pyGnome/pyGtk, SAMBA, Speak Freely, VNC, WWWoffle, XEmacs, XMMS, XScreenSaver

CD-ROMs available for $5US (includes domestic shipping and handling) or a years subscription for $55US. Also available without crypto for international orders (for an additional shipping fee).
