If you remember one of my last posts, I wanted to eventually migrate my Django Developer Kit Appliance to use Foresight Linux as the underlying operating system… and I am proud to announce that I have made huge strides toward this goal!

Thanks to the guidance of some fellow rPathians, I managed to get an almost ready for production Django 1.2.3 + PostgreSQL 8.4 + Python 2.6.2 and lots of Django modules and latest versions for Git, Mercurial, Bzr, and Subversion ready to be used!

What didn’t make into this version? The web based management system is not present and is very possible I may have missed a small package along the way. But I will keep updating the appliance with newer versions of Django modules and will try to create a helpful environment  for Django developers out there! And you can always keep your appliance up to date running conary updateall from the command line.

Oh, I have created a default djangouser and djangoproject user and database (PostgreSQL) for you too!

Feel like taking the appliance for a spin? The following images are available for download:

As always, feel free to drop me a line with your comments or suggestions.
