About the Foresight Linux
Foresight Linux is a Distribution which showcases some of the latest and greatest from GNOME. Some of the things that may not be mature enough for some of the other distros. Some of the more innovative things are included, like beagle, f-spot , avahi (zeroconf), and the latest hal . All of this plus some nice, clean default themes and artwork.
Where does the name Foresight come from? Glad you asked! Many things about Foresight are innovative, not just some of the applications that are included. The biggest of which is Conary, which is a new way of looking at package management. Also, a work in progress, Oversite for web based systems management.
Foresight and Xorg 7.0
Xorg 7.0 on my Foresight laptop now available. Seems to be working well, though still needs a little work to make everything work the way it should. Mostly updates to rhpxl and rhpl so system-config-display works right. There is also an dependancy issue that is pulling in a old version i need to track down. And I have three packages that aren?t building now, pyxf86config, tk, and xterm. We need to track that stuff down then we should be ready to ship it.
NetworkManager bug fixed
I have been plagued with a broken NetworkManager since 0.6.0 was released (now at 0.6.2). Odd thing is that it worked for others and not me. Specifically we had confirmed reports that NM worked on Foresight with madwifi (I have an ipw2200). Finally got it working? Should work fine for the masses now, try it and report results please.
