Supported Platforms

Today I took some time off to try and wade through my e-mails. My Inbox is my “to do” list, and I’ll answer an e-mail much faster than pretty much anything else.

However, my Inbox was over 550 messages strong, the oldest from more than a year ago, so something needed to be done. I am now under 100, but too tired to go on today, so if you got a reply from me to an e-mail you sent five months ago, let me apologise once again.

I was surprised that a number of the e-mails were from people wanting support for a particular platform. When I listed out the platforms we will support starting in 1.1.3 I was surprised at the number:

  • Solaris 8 and 9, both SPARC and x86
  • Mac OSX (Panther)
  • Debian, woody and sid
  • Red Hat 7, 8, and 9
  • Mandrake 8 and 9
  • Fedora Core 1
  • CentOS (equivalent to RHES 3)

And I have probably forgotten a few. These platforms will be supported via our “lynx installer”. Why did we choose these? Well, our support customers pay us to (grin).

Here is a list of the platforms I hope to have out for 1.2, but no promises:

  • SuSE
  • Gentoo
  • FreeBSD

Until then, we should build on all of those platforms, so if you happen to get it running please drop me and/or the list a note with your process and we’ll try to get it on the web page.

  1. Thanks for the RSS link. As to the White Box Enterprise Linux, I got all the CDs at hand, haven’t got time to install it though. Might give CentOS a try also, since they both claim to be based on RHEL SRPMS.
