GNOME Shell 3.8.3 introduced a tiny, tiny, tiny bug in Fedora 19 installations that you couldn’t actually login in desktop.. Details, Linux is about Console anyway ;)
Latest Java 8 is available in Fedora 19 as a tech preview for whoever wants to try it!
Fedora 19 beta is out!
These Fedorians are crazy ;) From the awful F15 to awesome F19!
If you’re running the amazing Fedora 19, you’re just few clicks away from trying the experimental Wayland!
Fedora’s 19 Wallpapper submission took an deadline extension till 10th of April. There are only 10 days left to apply your wallpaper, which is enough time, and if you are a designer, it wouldn’t be bad to add a Fedora Official Wallpaper to your portfolio! By the way, Fedora 19 already kicks ass! Oh, and [...]
Many good things happens lately for Gnome users. The magnificent GNOME 3.8 is arriving next Wednesday (Yeap, just in a week from today!) and Fedora also is preparing a really awesome release! If you have some spare time, get the GNOME 3.7.92 ISO today, and participate to Gnome 3.8 Test Day all day tomorrow!
There were some comments asking how to upgrade Fedora 18 to Fedora Rawhide. Instead of answering one by one, I am writing this sort intro for using next Fedora. Fedora Rawhide is not a panacea to use the very latest GNOME, and it will give you some hard times. Using it with caution ;)
Fedora 18 just released this month, but for the people that have tried Rawhide (aka Fedora 19) 18 has already started to showing its age. The features for the next Fedora haven’t been yet decided but some cool features have already arrived in the development version, towards to the Alpha, which is expected to come [...]
Fedora 18 release is now out for anyone who wants to try it. If you are disappointed with any previous versions, Spherical Cow might give you a pleasant surprise -but also might not. Spherical Cow in my opinion is the very first Fedora release that can be used from rookies, if they are willing to make some concessions ;)
After the 2 months delay and the 8 months release cycle of Spherical Cow, Fedora now will try to make a “Speedy Gonzales” release inside in just 4 months. This is the shortest release cycle that Fedora ever had from its day one – Nov 2003, Yarrow / GNOME 2.4 / Linux 2.4.19. Fedora 19 [...]
Fedorians have a nice sense of humor, and FedUp (FEDora UPgrader) is the new upgrading tool for Fedora 17->18 and beyond, that replaces PreUpgrader. Earth survived from Mayan prophecy, end of days didn’t come, and Fedora 18 release will make it at Jan 8, 2013 -hopefully ;)
Fedora 18 is a major upgrade from 17 and a pleasant surprise for its users. This is definitely the best Fedora release so far – even if beta-, it has a good and pure GNOME 3 implementation, a new installer based on GNOME OS installer designs… and is extremely fast! However Fedora is still not ready to for a broader [...]
I am using latest Gnome with JHBuild and Fedora 18 for several days and I am so impressed that I thought to write about it! This is not about to make you either install Fedora or upstream Gnome with JHBuild, but certainly the idea of having the very latest Gnome, in a rolling release form, is charming. [...]
The YellowDog (Yum) package manager for Fedora will soon have an successor marked as the next Generation Yum using hawkey/libsolv (maintain by SUSE) for backend. DNF a Yum fork, promises better performance, easier bindings to other languages other than Python (Yum) and a clear package manager API. This will benefit PackageKit and therefore Gnome Software, at least in [...]
Fedora comes with RPM package manager (PM) and Yum Updater, Ubuntu has Dpkg (USC now) PM and Apt updater, Arch has Pacman PM and Updater and in general every distro features its own package manager and update method. Most of these package management systems are backends for packagekit and are responsible to add, update and remove applications in our [...]
I recently tried out the Fedora 18 Nightly Build to see what’s new! The most visible change was the completely new Anaconda Installer. The installer is the first thing a user sees and uses when he tries a new distro for the first time. Hence it is a very important part of the distro and [...]
After 3 weeks of delay Beefy Miracle will be released in a couple of hours! How exciting is this? A lot! Fedora 17 is an amazing release and basically Fedora is what we are using here :) Reviewing a new Fedora release is kinda hard. You can refer to the dozens new things that brings [...]
