Fedora Core 6 Slips

October 7, 2006

The Core 6 schedule was adjusted today. The release date has moved from October 11th to October 17th. Jesse Keating posted the following to the Fedora Announce List”

From Jesse Keating:

“We regret to announce a slip of the Fedora Core 6 release schedule. A few issues are still present that we would like to see fixed before we release.

– Possible ext3 corruption bug

– Installs with 256megs of ram stall

– Package ordering issues on multilib platforms (x86_64, ppc64)

– SELinux issue with updating kernels on ppc platforms

– iscsi based installations not functional

There are obviously other issues and bugs still open, but these are the ones that are really “blocking” the release. To give enough time to fix these issues, we’ve extended the release date 6 days to Tuesday, Oct 17th. Freezes are still in place (even more so now). Your extra careful testing of rawhide over the next few days would greatly be appreciated.

Keep an eye on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Core/Schedule for any changes.”
