Troy Dawson has announced the availability of the fourth alpha release of Scientific Linux 6, a distribution built by compiling source packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, but with extra applications that can be useful in academic environments: “We have released the fourth alpha of Scientific Linux 6. Changed since alpha 3: Red Hat logos change – changed background, changed background on GDM, change KDM theme; Plymouth change – generic (non-graphical) start-up now has blue instead of red; packages added – OpenAFS 1.6.0, liveusb-creator 3.9.2. Known issues: packages that haven’t been built, and aren’t in the release – perl-Sys-Virt; if you install OpenAFS during the install, you do not get the ‘firstboot’ screen that asks you which cell you want; we have not put in any external repositories, such as EPEL or RPMforge, we expect to add these when we move to beta.
