Changed Packages from Upstream

The following is a list of packages not currently included in GoOSe Linux:

GoOSe Linux 6.0

Unsupported Architecture

GoOSe Linux curently only supports i386 and x86_64 packages. Therefore any packages that are not of these architectures could not be built / included into the release.

S390/S390x Packages

  • iprutils - Utilities for the IBM Power Linux RAID adapters
  • libica - Library for accessing ICA hardware crypto on IBM zSeries
  • openssl-ibmca - A dynamic OpenSSL engine for IBMCA
  • compat-gcc-295 - GNU Compiler Collection for Red Hat Linux 7.1/s390x and 7.2/s390 compatibility
  • s390utils - Utilities and daemons for IBM System/z

PPC/PPC64 Packages

  • Librtas - Libraries to provide access to RTAS calls and RTAS events
  • Libservicelog - Servicelog Database and Library
  • ppc64-utils - Linux/PPC64 specific utilities
  • servicelog - Servicelog Tools
  • yaboot - Linux bootloader for Power Macintosh "New World" computers
  • libehca - IBM InfiniBand HCA Userspace Driver
  • powerpc-utils - Utilities for PowerPC platforms

Upstream Packages / Replacement Package

In some cases, it made sense to change the content of the package, and therefore the name as well.

  • redhat-indexhtml -> goose-indexhtml
  • redhat-logos -> goose-logos
  • redhat-release-server -> goose-release-server
  • redhat-bookmarks -> goose-bookmarks

Excluded from GoOSe

There are several packages which are currently either excluded from the release, or altered in some way to remove the copyright restrictions.

Unsupported Infrastructure

Maintaining the following packages makes no sense since GoOSe does not support the same insfrastructure as upstream.

  • yum-rhn-plugin (RHN is not part of GoOSe)
  • rhnsd (RHN is not part of GoOSe)
