Extend the life of your PowerPC machine with Linux
Loveland, Colorado — 26 March 2002 — Terra Soft Solutions, Inc., the leading developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions announces shipment of Yellow Dog Linux 2.2, the most mature and complete PowerPC Linux distribution available.
Yellow Dog Linux 2.2 offers an array of improvements over v2.1 with the most advanced, stable release of the 2.4 kernel, improved support for the Apple ADC monitors, and accelerated video. The screen brightness and volume control buttons are now supported on NewWorld ROM Apple PowerBooks and iBook computers. And while the latest release of KDE is an appreciated improvement, Gnome has taken a stunning leap forward –giving Mac OS X a run for its money– exceptional by all standards.
A few of the features are:
• Red Hat 7.2 based system
• ‘ext3’ graphical migration program
• XFree86 4.2.0, KDE 2.2.2, and Gnome 1.4 w/Nautilus & Evolution
• Improved modem & printer support
• Improved support for nVidia GeForce2 MX & ATI Radeon–including ADC digital
With movement into high performance computing supported by the release of Black Lab 2.0, YDL now offers ‘HPC Node’ as a package selection, in addition to ‘Base’, ‘Home/Office’, ‘Developer Workstation’, ‘Server’, and ‘Everything’ options.
“The means by which this latest YDL release came together clearly demonstrates the cohesion and professional relationships that have grown within the open source community. While our in-house experience plays a significant role in the maturation of YDL, the unified effort of the community continues to make YDL possible. Many thanks to everyone who worked with us,” states Dan Burcaw, Terra Soft Solutions CTO.
