Fedora: The Latest
Thanks to Alvaro and Martin, guys that belong to Hackspace Peru for the support of the outstanding camp event that will promote the use of FEDORA 23 and GNOME 3.18.
IndiaHacks 2016, HackerEarth’s annual flagship event, aims to be the largest global gathering of developers. The event comprises of a series of hackathons and algorithmic challenges across nine different tracks.
Open Source is one of the tracks and aims to encourage open source contributions to various participating organizations. The track follows a model similar to Hacktoberfest, where contributions are measured by accepted pull requests and commits to open source software projects.
After much trial and error and fighting with permissions, I’ve managed to create a much more simpler way of getting a Fedora 23 chroot running on a non-rooted Android phone.
The past few days Red Hat / Fedora developers have been rebuilding Fedora Rawhide packages with the GCC 6 compiler. Out of the 17,741 packages, 577 packages ran into issues relating to GCC 6 (~3% of the packages).
Having problems with 577 packages due to the new version of the GNU Compiler Collection is much more than usual with Red Hat's Marek Polacek pointing out last year with the GCC 5 rebuild they had problems with half as many -- 236 problematic packages.
