Linux

There are many reasons why you should learn to use Linux. Linux servers are really common, especially among web designers and developers. So, it would really be good if you knew how to administer your own account, wouldn't it?

In addition, if you're a student or a programmer, Linux provides a robust environment with loads of neat tools like gcc, gdb, Java, Perl, Php, Python... I could go on and on!

Or perhaps you might prefer the stability of Linux, and the fact that you don't have to keep rebooting your PC. There's also the ever-present problem of BSODs, viruses, Trojans, spyware with more mainstream operating systems like Microsoft Windows. You get the gist.

But Linux, with its mighty command line, can seem pretty daunting to a new user. So, I've come up with a little guide to get you started on Linux!

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
