DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2011-04
DragonFly 2.10 RELEASED!
Hello everyone! 2.10 has finally been released. Our mirrors are still
pulling the hot press. Our main mirror site, avalon, has the goods if
your favorite mirror doesn't yet. Here's a quick smattering of links:
Both 32-bit and 64-bit USB and ISO images are available. My
recommendation is to use the 64-bit usb image or the 64-bit gui
usb image (if your machine can handle 64-bits). That is,
dfly-x86_64-gui-2.10.1_REL.img.bz2. Note that linux emulation
only works w/ the 32 bit image so if you need linux emulation
you have to go with 32 bits.
The gui images contain a full X environment and the git repos
for /usr/src and /usr/pkgsrc and is recommended if you have the
bandwidth to pull it down. It is approximately 1.2GB.
This release contains many features, see the release page for an
exhaustive list. The big ticket items are significantly better
MP performance and significantly better filesystem performance with
the AHCI and SILI drivers.
