I transfered the second release candidate of CRUX 2.1.1-64bit[1] to 
crux.danm.de yesterday. 


- Libidn moved from opt to core (thanks Terry),
- grub's xfs problem solved (thanks Matt),
- some port updates and
- the boot image uses syslinux 3.09 (instead of 3.11) again.

I've tested the following systems so far:

64bit (Intel EMT64/AMD64)

o Fujitsu Siemens Computers Scenic W620 i915G (Intel P4 64bit)
  => ISO booted successfully.

o Fujitsu Siemens Computers SCALEO P (Athlon64 3700+)
  => ISO booted successfully.

o HP Proliant DL360 G4(Intel P4 64bit) with Smart Array 6i (SCSI RAID1)
  => ISO booted successfully, all RAIDs were detected and were 
     accessible. I had loved to test more server machines but this small
     flounder was the only one lying around.

32bit (Intel) ;-)

o Fujitsu Siemens Computers Lifebook S4572 (Intel PIII 750)
  => After pressing F12 for choosing CD as primary boot device 
     the bootloader "isolinux" started. Of course, CRUX could 
     not boot (Kernel said: "Use a 32bit distribution"). I only
     wanted to see whether isolinux shows up.

bye, danm
