A peek at Fedora Rawhide

Filed under
Linux

Rawhide is the development version of Fedora which includes the latest upstream packages. At some point in the Fedora release schedule a fork (called branched release) is created to become the next stable Fedora and the rawhide version continues on its own.

As of today Fedora Rawhide contains packages that will be part of both Fedora 19 and Fedora 20. If you want to take a peek at the next Fedora version, Rawhide is what you need, but bare in mind though that it can be unstable so in the event of a system crash you should know what to do to recover it.

I'll discuss one way to use BPF on the Fedora and Red Hat family of Linux distributions, demonstrating on Fedora 26. BPF can run user-defined sandboxed programs in the kernel to add new custom capabilities instantly. It's like adding superpowers to Linux, on demand. Examples of what you can use it for include: Read more
