Operating Systems Availability on ASIS

Philippe Defert , IT/PDP

The status with the ASIS Application Software repository is presently as follows:

A platform is declared "frozen" when all applications are kept in the repository but no new package or version of a package is ever introduced in the repository for this architecture.

A platform is declared "partial" when only a part of the applications is generated for this particular O.S.. Getting access to ASIS applications is to be done with the appropriate tools which will give you some application of this particular platform and the rest from the closest O.S., called the "fail-over".

Around May 2000, the platform i386_redhat51 will be frozen and we hope to have a new active but partial architecture, sun4x_57 for Solaris 7.
