    Bits from Progeny
    Submitted by robster on Saturday, October 19, 2002 – 17:50
    ProgenyProgeny has come up with three bits of news this week. First it has announced Platform Services for providing a Linux platform on which value added Linux-powered products can be built (e.g. appliances).

    And of more technical interest Discover 2.0 has been released. Discover is a cross platform hardware detection system, that might some day be the de-facto hardware detection tool in Debian. Also the graphical PGI installer has reached version 1.0. PGI is an advanced installer that can be used to either install a bespoke or stock woody system and features hardware detection support.

    Subject: What happened to the ISO of PGI+Woody beta?
    Author: Quietti

    The directory where PGI 1.0 archives are found used to contain ISO images of PGI+Woody for i386 and ia64, but it no longer does. Does Branden have any plan to produce an updated ISO with PGI 1.0 and XFree86 4.2.1 to replace that old beta release? It would really be nice if he did. 🙂
