Smolt profiles distro hardware use


Novell has agreed to package Smolt and make it available in their repository for their next release, 10.3 though they aren't using it in their installer. Still in discussions with Mandriva. If you have contacts in other distributions, you can drop them a mail about Smolt and CC me in the discussions.


"When Fedora 7 was released, one of its standout features was Smolt, an opt-in program for collecting data about users' hardware. Since then, Smolt has provided a publicly available snapshot of systems running Fedora, and is in the process of being ported to other distributions. With features being rapidly added, Smolt has the potential to offer an unprecedented wealth of information, and to aid in quality assurance, tech support, and advocacy, not only for Fedora, but for GNU/Linux in general."
