MandrakeSoft updates Linux for Itanium

MandrakeSoft on Monday released a third beta version of its Itanium edition of Linux, the French company said. Itanium is the first 64-bit processor from Intel, but the high-end product still has only early operating system support from Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Red Hat, SuSE and others. The new Mandrake version comes with support for XFS, ReiserFS and ext3, three "journaling" file systems that make rebooting faster. It also uses version 2.4.8 of the Linux kernel, the latest 2.2.1 version of the KDE desktop user interface and 2.2.1a of the Samba software for joining Windows networks.
