The Linux support for Pegasos is increasing even more!

Loveland, Colorado -- 29 September 2004 -- Terra Soft Solutions(R), Inc., the leading developer of integrated PowerPC Linux solutions, is pleased to announce release of Yellow Dog Linux(TM) v4.0.

http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/news/2004/2004-09-29.shtml The final Yellow Dog Linux v4.0 CD-Rs have been created and will today be delivered to a CD production facility for glass mastering and replication. While shipping product will be available in approximately two weeks, Yellow Dog Linux v4.0 is immediately available through YDL.net Enhanced accounts.

Six months in development, Yellow Dog Linux v4.0 is built upon Fedora Core 2, offering both KDE 3.3 and GNOME 2.6.0 desktops with an all new presentation for both the Installer and post-installed desktop environment. Included apps are OpenOffice 1.1.1, Rhythmbox 0.8.3, Mozilla 1.7 and development tools glibc 2.3.3 and gcc 3.3.3 built upon the 32-bit kernel 2.6.8.

Terra Soft's lead engineer Owen Stampflee offers, "This development effort was perhaps the most challenging in the history of Terra Soft with a completely new code foundation, several mid-stream Apple product releases and revisions, and our own desire to achieve a product better than we have offered before driving us week after week. Our drive for excellence and the hard work of the OSS community has resulted in the best hardware support in the history of YDL."

Yellow Dog Linux v4.0 offers 32-bit support for USB-G3s, G4s, G5 Power Macs, and through the Freescale Board Support Package, Genesi Pegasos II ATX boards. Expanded USB support includes many cameras, printers, adapters, and storage devices. FireWire support is now built-in with bootable FireWire made possible through manual configuration. Dual-head monitor support too now available for PowerBooks and G4/G5 Power Macs. Wireless connectivity is immediately available through the Netgear WG511 54Mb PCMCIA card with D-Link and Linksys USB card support in final stages of testing. Mac-On-Linux offers the ability to run Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X and now offers automatic network configuration.
