DEBIAN GROUP BUSY WITH "GNU LIBC 6" CONVERSION
The Debian group is busy building Debian 2.0, its first distribution
based on GNU LIBC 6 for all platforms, including the i386. LIBC 6
re-unites the Linux C library with the GNU C library used on other
platforms, and improves compatibility of Linux with POSIX standards.
The Debian 2.0 developmental snapshot is at
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/unstable, this is not yet a working system.
If you would like to help with this development, please read the
developer's manuals at http://www.debian.org/doc/ .
Debian 2.0 will continue to support the LIBC 5 aplications that currently
run under Debian 1.3 and other Linux distributions.
DEBIAN OFFICIAL CD DISTRIBUTION GROWS
Three companies have now announced distribution of the Debian GNU/Linux
Official 2-CD Set. Cheap*Bytes is the latest to announce (below).
Linux Systems Labs continues to offer CD (see http://www.lsl.com/), and
the German bookstore J.F. Lehmanns will be offering the CD in its stores
Information about all Debian CD vendors can be found at
