    Progeny ‘newton’ 1.0 released
    Submitted by robster on Monday, April 09, 2001 – 12:24
    After three betas and two release candidates Progeny 1.0 codenamed ‘Newton’ has been released. See the press release or just go download. Don’t forget those running older Progeny releases can use apt to upgrade, also if you are running slink/potato you can upgrade to Progeny Linux too.


    On a personal note a big congratulations should go out to all the developers who have made this happen, don’t forget much of this work will be contributed back into Debian proper. This distribution provides a firm basis for the development of Linux NOW. Debian Planet will be doing a a review as soon as we get our hands on it!

    It gives instructions on the Progeny website for upgrading from potato, but does anyone know if it is possible to try Progeny debian for users using woody, or even those of us using unstable “Sid”?

    Works well.
    Their gnome packages are not compatible with Ximian, meaning you have to replace them with Ximian’s.
    No problem with regular debian mirror apt-gets.
    I am using a savage driver and they include an old driver that hangs with scrolling.

    Other than that, it’s great.
    Good to see a Debian dist, after Storm and Corel are gone.

    Almost as good as using BSD.

    Well, i’ve just downloaded CD-images on
    deb http://archive.progeny.com/progeny updates/newton
    The 1 first binary disk is still being downloaded,
    The 2 is downloaded, MD5checked and burned but
    there are some strange things, I can’t read everything, by exemple RELNOTES.txt.

    Anyone with the same problem ? Or, must I burn another CD ?

    Are you using Windows?
    If so, that’s probably the “problem”. Like almost any cd, Progeny uses RockRidge extensions (IIRC) for symbolic links etc., which Windows can’t read. The CD is probably burned correctly, but the file just resides somewhere else on the CD. Look somewhere else for the actual file or viewing the file in Linux might help.

    Like Debian, Progeny had to freeze at some point.
    Also like Debian, we stayed frozen longer than we
    expected. Thus, we’re not on the bleeding edge.

    However, I’m currently preparing XFree86 4.0.3
    packages (pre-release versions for testing are
    available at the X Strike Force apt repository),
    and Eric Gillespie is working on GTK+ 1.4 and
    newer GNOME stuff.

    XFree86 4.0.3, for instance, will likely end up in our
    newton-updates repository.

    Hello!

    I think there should be more info about the apt-get locations on your website. I could only find:
    deb http://archive.progeny.com/progeny newton main contrib non-free

    So I thought:
    deb http://archive.progeny.com/progeny newton-updates main contrib non-free

    would be the right updates location. But when I do apt-get update, I get:
    Failed to fetch http://archive.progeny.com/progeny/newton-updates/Packages
    404 Not Found

    What’s wrong?

    Perhaps a silly question, but I’ve yet to see anyone here or on /. or anywhere else answer it: does the Progeny install allow you to install to an existing reiserfs partition? Thanks in advance.
