both, ehm Dell are involved in the drive to port Redhat effectively.
I therefore would like to know everything possible about it from external
sources before I talk to these people again. I can't really speak for Dell
on the topic though, you know, yada yada. Although last word from Redhat,
"Red Hat Linux is already available for the Alpha (yours truly is
using such a machine :), so there
shouldn't really be much porting beyond "recompile". Whether
architecture-specific changes are
necessary is another thing, but 64-bitness issues have generally been worked
out by now."
Hmmm, working or optimised ?
