Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 AS Launched
The only packages modified are 'redhat-logos', 'redhat-artwork', 'anaconda-product' and 'firstboot'. These packages are changed in order to remove Red Hat's trademarks from all artwork and to skip the RHN registration step immediately after installation. All other packages remain unchanged from those released by Red Hat and there are no packages added or removed. This results in a product that is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. Features of Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 AS include the Linux 2.6 kernel, SELinux, GNOME 2.8, Samba 3.0, Logical Volume Manager 2, PCI Express support and NFSv.4.
In conjunction with the release, the Pie Box Repository has been extended. Updates for Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 AS will get released shortly after any source RPMs have been released by Red Hat. Typically, it takes only a few hours before updates are in the Pie Box Repository.
Pie Box Enterprise Linux 4 AS and subscriptions to the Updates service are available immediately via www.piebox.com
PixExcel, based in the United Kingdom, recognised the demand for enterprise quality Linux software that does not come bundled with an expensive support contract. This led to the release of Pie Box Enterprise Linux 3 AS back in April 2004. Since then PixExcel has been supplying a growing client base ranging from the home enthusiast to multi-million pound corporations. These clients share one thing in common - they demand a quality product but are sufficiently skilled to operate it without the expense of a support contract.
