As per http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... f=4&t=1243 is the distribution available or is this a project to make it available?

If the former, please update the first post with links.

It is available for download from http://www.raspbian.com/. Please note, for those reading in the designer grey design of this forum, that's a link that is!

It won't let me edit my first post, sorry Michael.

I believe it's available here via http (maybe ftp to follow, although doesn't seem to be set up as yet).

archive.raspbian.org - in /debian/
distribution.hexxeh.net/raspbian/archive - in /debian/

HTH!

It depends on your definition of "available", the repo is publically accessible and has enough packages to install a basic GUI. Heexh is building images based on said repo which can be used on the Pi.

However a lot of packages from debian are not in our repo yet, we have not yet reached the point of self contained buildability and there is still quite a way to go before we reach what I would consider to be "release quality".

Is there any plan to make the official release support Hard Float? Is there any reason for not using it?
