Fedora 18: Graphical Installer Horror

Filed under
Linux

I am usually quick to write an article or something on the latest Ubuntu or Fedora release. But for Red Hat’s new Fedora 18 operating system, I thought I’d hold off a little. To be blunt, Fedora 18 is a horrible release. Let me explain the issues that I encountered with the latest update.

On occasion, you can generally get a fair idea of an operating systems potential from running the Live CD. Upon boot, F18 seemed fast enough and stable enough to prompt me to attempt a full installation. Appearance and aesthetics, it is not too different from it’s predecessor Fedora 17. In fact, one might even struggle to determine the difference between the two. Aesthetics aside, I was determined to find what was really making it all tick underneath.
The first thing that Fedora and fellow Linux veterans will notice is the new installer.

Understanding The Linux Kernel's BPF In-Kernel Virtual Machine

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine.
