DICE FC6 Upgrade


Release management
FC6 is becoming a managed release, but it isn't expected to make it to stable until Thursday 5 April 2007. Until then, set the profile.release resource to develop for any FC6 machines you install.
CD images
CD images can be found in /afs/
PXE booting
It is possible to install fc6 machines through PXE, but it is not currently considered a "supported" install method. Note that pxegrub (used by some really old machines) is not supported at the moment.
autobuilt software
Lots of components and locally managed software have been autobuilt to make the development process for DICE FC6 quicker and easier. Typically these will have been submitted to either the autolcfg or autodice bucket. When you have built, installed and tested your software you should submit to the normal appropriate bucket, e.g. lcfg, ed, dice. You should also remove any "autobuilt" labels against the package in the package lists or headers.
Defaults packages
Please, please, please submit defaults packages when you submit packages for your components, this makes it much easier to get the LCFG server up and running on an FC6 box.
Package buckets
Please submit packages to the bucket which matches the header or package list level, i.e. lcfg, ed, dice.
lcfg and ed level package lists
Please only add packages to these lists if you are sure they can be distributed externally and that adding them to those lists will be useful to external users. If it only helps Informatics users please put it in the appropriate DICE list. If the software is very specific consider adding it through the relevant header rather than the package list so that only those interested will get it installed.
