Fedora Unity Releases Respins for FC-6 -Bob Jensen

Fedora Unity releases updated Fedora Core 6 Re-Spins.

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO
Re-Spins (DVD and CD Sets) of Fedora Core 6. These Re-Spin ISOs are
based on Fedora Core 6 and all updates released as of January 11th,
2007. The ISO images are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures
via BitTorrent starting Thursday, January 18th, 2007. PPC images will
follow within the next 5 days, but will have had only limited testing.

This release was delayed while waiting for fixes to known issues with
Fedora Core 6[1] as well as the creation of a new tool for composing
Re-Spins. Previous releases were built with a homebrew script. This
release was built with the new tool called Pungi[2], developed by Jesse
Keating, a leading community member and Fedora Release Engineer, with
community input. This tool will be used in future official Fedora
releases and for Fedora Unity Re-Spins. We have joined in this effort
to bring a full featured tool to the Fedora community, enabling anyone
to build Re-Spins and Live-Spins now and in the future.

The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora
community to bring quality solutions to the community. Project members
want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the
community. Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project
contributors and interested users.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with
the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates already included.
These updates might otherwise comprise more than 700MiB of downloads
for a default install. This is a community project, for and by the
community. You can contribute to the community by seeding the torrent
after your download has completed, or by joining the test process.

The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and often. We hope to
provide new Re-Spins each month during the life of a Fedora Core
release. We take early snapshots at mid-month to start testing, and
final snapshots about a week before the release. We test all released
ISO images using a test matrix to ensure the quality the Fedora
community expects. If you are interested in helping with the testing or
pre-seeding efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team. Contact
information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/.

This is good news. However, I didn't see anything on this on the main Fedora page. I realize this is an unofficial project so maybe it has no place on the main Fedora web page. But once someone already installs the official Fedora from the Fedora web page and then finds out about this on here or somewhere else it's already too late. Personally, I'd like to see at least a mention of the Unity project on the main Fedora website (it can also say it's unofficial) so people can download the Unity version at once if they wish.

Someone with edit access and/or who is more familiar with fedoraproject.org should contact right people there or if he can, edit himself... I think that it isn't very hard to get it there.

I just sent an email to Thomas Chung about the request. Since Fedora Unity may not be an official group within the Fedora Project, I'm not sure if the request can be granted. We'll see....

The DVD ISO is only 2.9GB. I checked the sha1sum and it matches the advertised. Any ideas as to why the ISO is 0.5 GB smaller than the original?

Yes, that's correct. You have to download the .torrent file first.

Then, you have to open the .torrent file in a torrent manager program. There are two simple programs that comes in fedora repos, they are bittorrent-gui and azureus.

I recommend you to use azureus.

Here's a guide to understand and use it: http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/arch...to_azureus.cfm

The most important thing you should know about torrent is to have you internet port open to allow traffic through it, otherwise your transfers will be slow.

Here's how you install both programs and then you can try them out:
Code:
su -
(input root password)
yum install -y bittorrent bittorrent-gui azureus
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Yes, I use that fake viagara that I try to sell and can tell you that when I insert it as a suppository, my head swells to twice it's normal size but my brain remains the size of a pea. I hope I can figure out the instructions because that pig out in the back yard is looking pretty hot right now.
