I must apologize for the delays in my Hawaiian shirt reviews. I’ve been working on a project called Yor Linux that has been taking more time than I anticipated.
Yor Linux is another Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) recompiled distribution. That means that I take the source code from Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and recompile it. I can then use the resulting binaries any way that I want to. It’s the same thing I was doing (with others) to create Scientific Linux.
Why am I doing it. For several reasons, but the biggest is that I really enjoy doing it. It’s fun for me. I’m also doing things a bit different, because it’s mine and I can. One thing that will be different with be the 64 bit build (x86_64). RHEL has always have a combination of 64 and 32 bit binaries in the same distribution, but only a select few 32 bit binaries. Mine will be just 64 bit by itself, and 32 bit by itself. If you want 32 bit binaries in your 64 bit installation, you will be able to set that up, but you will get all of the 32 bit binaries, not just a handful.
Anyway, I’m finding Yor Linux taking more of my time than I expected, and my hawaiian shirt reviews were one of the things suffering because of it.
