Review - Fedora 11 Preview

Filed under
Linux

RedHat introduces all the exiting new technologies in Fedora, the community driven distribution. Fedora 11 will have the following features besides package version upgrades.

* 20 seconds boot time to log in screen from the 30 second Fedora 10 boot time
* EXT4 as the default file system
* OpenChange for native access of Microsoft Exchange
* rpm 4.7 (improved performance)
* Automatic multimedia codecs, fonts and mime installer

Installation:

Anaconda is the installer for Fedora, which has not changed much but the introduction of EXT4 file system introduced few complications. You need to create an EXT4 root partition and an EXT3 boot partition as the live image can only be installed on an EXT4 file system and the GRUB version available will not support booting from EXT4 partitions. The latest Ubuntu and Mandriva versions, which were released a month before the final release of Fedora support booting from EXT4. Please refer this if you need more information on why Fedora 11 could not boot from an EXT4. Also, note that Fedora is one of the first distributions to support EXT4 file systems.

Fedora 11 Delayed Again

redhat.com: A late discovered and just potentially fixed anaconda storage bug[1] has necessitated another week slip of our schedule. The change is important but invasive enough to require re-validating our storage tests. This gives us time to create a second release candidate and fully validate it and hand it off to the mirrors in plenty of time to sync up for the new release date of June 9th.

  • There and Back Again: The MongoDB Cloud Story
    Before it was a database company, MongoDB was a cloud company. Founded in 2007 and originally known as 10gen, the company originally intended to build a Java cloud platform. After building a database it called MongoDB, the company realized that the infrastructure software it had built to support its product was more popular than the product itself, and the PaaS company pivoted to become a database company – eventually taking the obvious step of renaming itself to reflect its new purpose.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
  • How Red Hat is tailoring OpenStack to fit … everyone
    Even though there have been no major changes announced to the OpenStack platform of late, it was still one of the most talked about subjects at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Red Hat plays a significant role in the development of the platform and is very proud of its contribution to the community.
  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
    In 2007, when 3scale, Inc. was founded, some people thought it was crazy to be investing so much time and energy into API. But Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale, Inc., said that even at that time his team knew that the future was API-driven, and they wanted to help that happen.
