W sieci pojawiła się wersja beta nowej dystrybucji Red Hat Linuksa, noszącej kodową nazwę Pensacola. Projektowana jako dystrybucja czysto serwerowa, Pensacola wprowadza kilka rozszerzeń w porównaniu ze standardową Enigmą. Wśród różnic są m.in. dodatkowe oprogramowanie do zarządzania clusterami oraz tunning kernela pod kątem zastosowań serwerowych.

Wszyscy samobó^H^H^H^H^Htesterzy, którzy chcą zapoznać się z nowym czerwonym kapturkiem, mogą go znaleźć pod adresem ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/pensacola/.

  From: Michael K. Johnson   Subject: Announcing a beta release of Red Hat Linux: Pensacola  Date:	 Wed, 27 Feb 2002 13:47:26 -0500      A beta release of a new server-oriented edition of Red Hat Linux,  Pensacola, is available for your computer-crashing pleasure.  We  strongly recommend that this beta not be used for mission-critical  applications, and we request that all bugs be filed in Red Hat's  Bugzilla database at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/  Please use the "Red Hat Public Beta" product, and the "pensacola"  version.    All victims^Wtesters should subscribe to pensacola-list@redhat.com  by sending mail to pensacola-list-request@redhat.com with a  subject of "subscribe", or by visiting  https://listman.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/pensacola-list/      Pensacola introduces two new areas of functionality beyond  Red Hat Linux 7.2 (Enigma):   o  Advanced clustering technology   o  Linux kernel tuned specifically for server workloads      Clustering:    The clustering capabilities include the existing Piranha technology  from the Red Hat High Availability Server product, but now include  new shared storage failover clustering.  The shared storage failover  capabilities include STONITH ("Shoot The Other Node In The Head" --  one node physically removes power from the other node for data fencing),  NFS failover, CIFS (samba) failover, and hooks for custom applications  (e.g. database)    Documentation for the clustering components is not complete, but you  can use the older Red Hat High Availability Server documentation at  http://ha.redhat.com/docs/high-availability/index.html  for setting up Piranha (be aware, FOS is no longer included in Piranha;  Piranha is used only for LVS clustering), and there is alpha-quality,  incomplete documentation available for the new cluster management tools  that will be updated nearly daily at  http://people.redhat.com/jrfuller/cms/      Kernel:    The kernel tuning includes some larger default values, but more  particularly it includes:   o  IO scalability improvements   o  Large memory tuning   o  Multi CPU improvements (scheduler)   o  POSIX AIO for disk access (database helper)   o  Network logging and network crashdumps   o  Hyperthreading support (boot with acpismp=force)      Availability:    You can get your copy of Pensacola at  ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/pensacola/  or at mirrors, listed at  http://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html  So far, the list of mirrors known to have synchronized includes:  ftp://ftp.dulug.duke.edu/pub/redhat/linux/beta/pensacola/  ftp://ftp.shuttleamerica/com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/pensacola/    Many more should be available in a matter of hours.    Enjoy testing, and remember: file those bug reports!  Once again, that's  "Red Hat Public Beta" product, "pensacola" version.    Thanks!    michaelkjohnson     "He that composes himself is wiser than he that composes a book."
