A weeks is long time, sometimes!

So this week we have been bashing and crashing and testing.

The old 90/10 rule applies. 90% of the work takes 10% of the time.... the other 10% takes forever!

We have got quite a few wrinkles ironed out.

Most of the basic services run - though the fixes we have applied on a running box need to be added to the gitea repo and the packages rebuilt in Koji - probably during this week.

Maria DB is going to take quite a bit of work

JP is looking at swapping out qmail for postfix which is a big one.

He may also swap out tinydns as well.

We have moved from radiusclient-ng to freeradius-client which still needs a lot of path corrections.

We have also used a different daemontools package and that moves items from /usr/local/.bin to /usr/bin.

It still needs a load of old PHP templates removed and we can see other errors in the logs that need attention, bugging, triaging, and fixing.

It all takes time!

Services I can see not running at the minute.


The whole installer will have to be hacked about - that's a job none of us are looking forward too :-(

So we have made quite a bit of progress, logged loads of bugs and are moving forward.

Do please come and help..... just PM for details.

1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.
