Is there any mailing list for the discussion of RH Enterprise Beta
Taroon or RH Enterprise in general?
I've found some bugs which apply to Severn Beta1, Taroon Beta1 AS and
WS. Shall I report these bugs in bugzilla for Taroon and Severn?
Right now we have RH Enterprise WS, ES and AS but Taroon was only
released as WS and AS. What are the plans for this product lines?

Feature comparison sticks aside...the fact that yum uses the python
bindings of redhat's own rpm related applications, makes yum seem to me
the absolutely obvious choice for further development inside rhl, in
terms of future development integration.
Want to give the installer or r-c-p the ability to talk to external
repos as a matter of project goals on down the road? Yum seems to be the
thing for that.
Yes apt is popular with a certain crowd...but it terms of future
development direction for the project, yum (on the face of things, for I
do not claim a deep understanding of the matter) seems better suited to
be the piece of technology that will allow rhl and external repos to
co-exist in a deeply integrated way.
Whether apt or autoupdate or grab or current or yum are the absolutely
best solution right now...is not important. The important thing is,
which implementation at the external repo technology, is best for future
development effort. Yum's reliance on redhat's already support python
bindings to librpm that r-c-p and anaconda use is a really big plus for
yum as a core technology in rhl.

I try to install Severn. The setup finished just when beginning to
install packages. First part of the setup is OK (choosing
Desktop/Workstation/Server, fdisk the disk, choosing packages).
Then the installer format the disk and then I have the following error:
1..2..3.. X server started successfully
rpmdb: /mnt/sysimage/var/lib/rpm/Name: No such file or directory
rpmdb: /mnt/sysimage/var/lib/rpm/Name: cannot sync: No such file or
install exited abnormally
send termination signals
This is copied by hand.

- Boot vmware with boot.iso
- Choose HTTP install

how does one query bugzilla.redhat.com for severn reports? there
seems to be no enrtry yet for severn, and it's doubly confusing that
the Product window contains the two entries:
Red Hat Linux Beta
Red Hat Public Beta
neither of which seem to mention severn.

In ncurses package changelog is written:
* Fri May 23 2003 Adrian Havill <havill(a)redhat.com> 5.3-5
- added latest rollup patch with widec/UTF8 centric weekly (20030517)
- added --enable-widec to configure (#86311)
Now some difference between ncurses in Shrike and ncurses in Severn
causes "centericq"  to look bad. A src.rpm is linked below. In
particular, the buttons on its startup screen are displaced,
corrupted, and upon selection are not toggled correctly either.
Since centericq doesn't show that problem with Shrike, I would
appreciate a comment on whether it is more likely to be a bug in
Severn's modified ncurses than in centericq.

Am I just missing it, or is Wine not available for Severn? I don't see
it on the CDs or FTP server, and there's no mention of it in the release
notes. Any chance it's going to make it into the final RHL release, or
am I just being obtuse and not seeing it somewhere?

I just installed Severn on my Toshiba 2595CDT (BTW,
I've run into a couple of problems -- I'd like to know
if anybody else has seen these same problems and any
ideas (I'll bugzilla if necessary).
1 -- ACPI doesn't work. With ACPI enabled, booting
hangs when PCMCIA is supposed to start. Adding
acpi=off to the grub line will let me boot up. Same
thing happened during the install.
2 -- What is smartd? After logging in, machine hung
during Gnome start-up during "CD Device Handler"
message (happened several times). I finally realized
(after getting rhgb stopped) that smartd was giving me
a "Drive Ready Seek Complete Error" with my cdrom (at
boot). After stopping smartd, I was able to get into
Gnome without any problems.
3 -- How can I get an 800x600 virtual console? With
previous versions, I've been able to pass vga=788 as a
kernel parameter at boot to get a console that fills
my whole screen (800x600 laptop LCD). Doesn't work
anymore (but rhgb doesn't work when I do try to pass
Any insight is welcome!
