Another slip in the FC6 schedule

Filed under
Linux

Over the weekend we ran into a few more bugs with Fedora Core 6 that we
decided were important enough to fix. There were some multilib compose
issues (wrong packages landing in the wrong dirs), some translation files
that would cause tracebacks in things like anaconda (whoops), and a
fedora-release package that forgot to enable updates (double whoops). For
these reasons and a few others, we decided to respin the release candidate
tree and push the release date out another couple of days.

The current plan is to spin a release candidate this evening with some last
minute fixes, and start the sync. Validation has gone very well up to this
point and baring any blow ups in the spin process, the release looks very
solid. We're planning to release on Thursday Oct 19th. This should give the
mirrors enough days to sync up. If things blow up horribly and we have to
spin again tomorrow, depending on what time we have to respin we may slip
until next week, as releasing on Fridays or Mondays gets you the wrath of the
mirror admins (:

I want to thank you all for playing along and helping us to make FC6 the best
release yet!

Ubuntu Core has the keys to IoT security

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
