Adélie Linux 1.0-ALPHA1: Release progress

Due to the unpredictable nature of testing a software distribution on a wide variety of hardware, the Adélie Linux team has felt it necessary to delay the public release of 1.0-ALPHA1 for a few more days. This was not an easy decision, but it is the correct decision to ensure you have a solid platform for testing.

Showstopper bugs currently preventing release include:

  • Bug #16: apk-tools cannot connect to HTTPS mirrors when booted from the Live CD
  • Bug #14: No initramfs generation is possible rendering LVM root non-bootable
  • Bug #17: Shell profile issues

Once these bugs are fixed, a final version of the ALPHA1 ISO will be released for x86_64 and x86_32.

Bugs already fixed include: modules missing on the live CD; lvmetad not being included on the live CD; and improper dependencies for Qt libraries.
