Op deze pagina van Abit is een persbericht te lezen over Gentus Linux 3. De belangrijkste vernieuwing in de nieuwe versie van deze Linux-distributie van Abit is de ondersteuning van de 815-chipset. Vanaf het einde van juli zal er een Gentus Linux 3 CD bij elk Abit-moederbord zitten:
When ABIT Launched its Gentus™ distribution it made a commitment to keeping Linux, along with ABIT mainboards, at the very forefront of technology. Therefore, ABIT is releasing a new version of Gentus to deal with new hardware issues. This time around, Gentus 3 has added support for Intel’s brand-new 815 (“Solano”) chipset.
All advances made in previous Gentus versions have been retained. These include support for ATA/100/66 on earlier ABIT models, plus drivers for the Intel 810 chipset’s integrated sound, Creative’s Sound Blaster Live! series and nVIDIA chip-based graphics cards. ABIT’s PerMon™ Tool Set is included, with hardware monitoring functionality, “Hard Disk Tool” for HD monitoring and parameter adjustment, and “G-Point Explorer” for adjusting your CPU’s front side bus speed from your desktop. Moreover, the PerMon™ Tool Set has been completely rewritten to take care of any concerns over the Linux GPL.
ABIT will begin bundling Gentus 3 with its new mainboards by the end of July. It is also available for download from www.gentus.com.[break]Met dank aan snake, die dit nieuws aan ons doorgaf.
