Fedora Core "Although I hate to do it, it looks like we're going to have to slip Fedora Core 5 test3 by a week. There is an ABI change in the gcc/glibc stack that requires a rebuild of the entire distribution. Given that, there is no way that we'll be able to make a freeze date of Monday. So, test3 will now freeze on Monday, 13 February with a release date of Monday, 20 February."

RE[3]: ABI Change?

Not so easy when they do a full rebuild like they've just done and you've got close on 2GB of packages to download (and my home ISP quotas bandwidth during peak times...). Still, I boot into FC5T2 between midnight and 1.30am to resume the endless attempts to catchup with the massive rawhide churn in the last week or so ;)

BTW, anyone else noticed that if the FC folks break Rawhide dependencies on a Friday night, they don't get fixed until Monday morning? And they've been doing that pretty well every week since FC5T2 came out!
