Redhat 8.0 (Psyche) is out | comments?
 
It's out people!

"Hang on to your hat!"
https://www.redhat.com/download/mirror.html
http://freshrpms.net/mirrors/psyche.html

Note that XMMS is NOT included in this release because of patents and licenses. You can grab the patch for 8.0 at
http://www.gurulabs.com/downloads.html
You can use the xmms mp3 plugin, but you have to understand that you will be violating the GPL (who cares?) :D

Support for cards other than Nvidia's
http://dri.sourceforge.net/

<mharris> The Radeon 8500 is supported by the currently in development r200 branch of CVS.

...So any card up to 7500 is supported and 8500 is being worked on :)


You can chat with Mike Harris at card.freenode.net #redhat
(very interesting discussions there, so feel free to pop-in)

I installed it w/o a hitch, didn't customize or go thru it yet...had to run to my night class...
So far I like Bluecurve, and everything works that I've tried, sound, network, 2D @ 1600x1200, and all my mounts...
Gonna try Printer, scanner, and wine later this week..any one know of a good wine help site, or would like to share their wine config file? I get how to do the drives, but after that, I'm lost...

Will do it as soon as I install my copy. I have to move everything from my windows partition to another drive so it might take me 2 days or so ;)

Would you all recommend Redhat8 or Mandrake 9 for a first time user? I got my WD 120gb HDD in last weekend, and have a 20 gig partition with Linux's name on it, now I just need to decide which distro is the best.

I've got to play with it a while now, and it's pretty stable...and quite good.

The only thing I didn't like is some of the programs anaconda installed didn't show up in the start menu, like LICQ...but I just made a desktop shortcut, and it's all good!

Yes they do show up.
It's in the "Extra" section under Internet :)
