Of Distros and Operating Systems: Part Fedora

Filed under
Linux

Install

The install of Fedora goes much faster than the openSUSE install and was very well done. I used the install DVD and chose Gnome (though KDE may be ‘my thing’; or not). Fedora recognized that I had a UPS attached via USB. I wish I could tell you more at this time…

Updates

I followed some instructions from a Fedora user on the Ubuntu forums that were supposed to increase the speed of patching.

His quickie on openSUSE




Fedora 8 In The Side Pocket

Fedora 8 loaded quickly, detected my UPS and did some other things that were nice, but when I tried to get my X configured with dual monitors and the Nvidia drivers (Livinia.org RPM)… one screen worked fine, but the other refused to display at anything above 640×480. <strike one>

Package Management

If you are the type of person who enjoys it when finger nails are dragged slowly across a chalk board then you will fall in love with Fedora’s package management system.

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
