Farewell Gentoo, hello openSuse

Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?

I see you think. Well that there where around 35 packages which linked to it and needed to get recompiled. *Sigh* and that after hours of waiting to get the update finished. So I started revdep-rebuild and wanted to do some development underwhile. Not possible! about every app I needed was linked to that lib so i had to wait while my system was completly unusable for that time.

Ok that was it.

Drifting away from Gentoo made me think about it.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
