Tuesday June 11 2002 @ 09:17PM EDT

Red Hat Linux Alpha 7.2 is now available from HP. You can download the CD-ROM images for free from this web site or, in the near future, purchase a media kit—a boxed set of five CD-ROMs.

Red Hat Linux Alpha 7.2 delivers reliability, stability, and performance. It's a complete operating environment with:

- Enhanced 2.4 kernel with ext3 journaling file system
- Upgraded installation program featuring automatic partitioning for quick system setup
- Graphical tools to manage updates, users, and network configuration

Red Hat Linux Alpha 7.2 has been tested on specific AlphaServers, namely the DS10/DS10L, DS20E, DS20L, ES40, and ES45. Note that testing of components has focused on server functionality and AlphaServer options, rather than desktop features.
