New Fedora 9 Re-spins



The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO Re-Spins of Fedora 9.

These Re-Spin ISOs are based on the officially released Fedora 8 installation media and include all updates released as of October 4th, 2008.

The ISO images are available for i386, x86_64 architectures via Jigdo and Torrent starting Tuesday October 7th, 2008.

Go to http://spins.fedoraunity.org/spins to get the bits!


     DVD Media Only

Due to known problems in comps, this is a DVD Only Re-spin. The CD version would have required all 6 to 7 discs to install.


     Full Installation Problems if Language Support Groups Selected

Selecting some language groups will cause file conflict errors, such as reported and explained in #465715 <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=465715>

A full list of bugs, packages and changelogs that have been updated in this Re-Spin can be reviewed on http://spins.fedoraunity.org/changelogs/20081004/


     Previous Re-Spin (20080718) will expire

Due to limited resources, this spin will immediately obsolete 20080718, which will be deleted from our mirrors in the next few days.

Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with the chance to install Fedora with recent updates already included.

These updates might otherwise comprise more than 2.05GiB of downloads for a full install.

This is a community project, for and by the community. You can contribute to the community by joining our test process.
