What stuff do you need testing? I have a wireless application board
with a geode chip and 128MB of RAM

at the moment, the installer in C5 will detect the geode as a i586
capable cpu, and elect not to use the i686 kernel. While the i686 works
fine. I have a small update to anaconda that lets it work with these
geode based machines.


So, can you machine survive a c5 install ?

What flavor of geode are you looking for ? *There's only a half dozen by the name

As many different ones we can get to test with ( and the sort of spec
you would expect to be usable with CentOS-5, so 256MB ram would be a
good start, 128 Might work too, definitely worth a try )

I am effectively looking for people who might be able to help with this
issue :


http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2552

At the moment it looks like there will be the need for an updates.img to
change behavior install time.

At the moment, I've only got access to the original Cyrix/NatSemi/AMD Geode in the 200-266MHz class range. *But... I do have a slightly off topic question.

If Sally can paint a house in 4 hours and John can paint a house in 6 hours...
No, seriously. *Given the .... 'target' of CentOS as a RHEL alternative, is it necessarily appropriate to attempt to support such hardware ? While I can understand some energy density benefits of running an LX800, I just personally don't see it as fitting with the nature of CentOS.

Note: I'm pretty much just a quiet outsider and just a user for the most part... so my opinion carries no weight.

That is indeed a very good question. Let me answer that in a few hours
time when I am on a real computer, not over NX from my phone to the
computer

No such thing, if you are using it - you automatically become a part of
the community and voices are good.

Heh. *Actually 2.4.**

I actually look forward to the answer. *While I see linux or netbsd (etc) as a good swiss army knife base for alot of hardware, I don't think targeted distro's should attempt to swiss army knife it -- ya then get excessive complexity or limited features due to a low lowest-common-denominator .

This is the 'developers' list . *As such, I'd imagine it'd be more for people working on advancing the distro heh. *My only experience with CentOS is remote dedicated servers -- I don't believe I've actually ever manually installed it. *I've worked with 4.x and 5.0... have yet to experience 5.1. *So far I've been very very happy with CentOS in general. *My 4.x box got violated a couple times, even rooted heh . *The 5.0 installation seems to be doing much better. *I've had some issues with getting up to date ant/java stuff for WowzaMediaServer/Red5, but all in all, I'd say I'm really happy with 5.0.

Here at work, we still use RH9.0 on production servers that go into the field (not broke, dont fix it). *If we ever need to do a major update due to hardware limitations or similar... and a new distro makes sense, it'll be CentOS (gotta love being the top of decision making hehehe)... it's been rock solid on my remote machines (other than the poor 4.x box heh).

Sorry, I have no way of testing the centos install on my geode,
because it is an embedded board without disk I/O ports.
