I am lazy, am I?
Well, posting my blog, that's true. I'm really lazy, but there are so many things going on at the moment; I'd really like to tell, but it's all confidential.
Well. We (AlphaCore team) have lost Christian Balint and Red Hat lost him as well. He was offered with a good job opportunity and took it. Since this job will make him traveling a lot and also will require him to work hard, he will not have time to do much of our AlphaCore thingy.
Well, that's him. Jay Estabrook (Compaq/HP), who is doing much testing on Alpha because he has all kind of Alphas around is doing a great job! Most communication is done via mail between him and myself, so nobody knows about what he is doing and that's way I have to say: Thank you Jay! here at this point.
AlphaCore is getting forward. Nearly every Fedora package has been built for AC now. Bugs have been fixed, bugs have been posted; Some minimal system should work fine already. I just need to push my Alpha to produce installation CDs - I should have a working anaconda now after doing a lot of investigations
Major AC point in the last weeks was the storage. I had to move all database instances and the package repository and so on to bigger disks. Well, during that move every process was hitting IO waits; Everything was slow, machines accessing the storage where hitting big loads due to that. Now the array is again split and IO is much better again. Should that interest you? I don't know; Maybe
