  • Red Hat Touts 5 Benefits of Its Kubernetes Update

    Red Hat Director of Product Strategy Brian Gracely and I recently had an interesting conversation about the five things Red Hat wants you to know about the latest Kubernetes update.

  • The Importance of the Partner Ecosystem in Your Storage Solution

    When building out a storage solution you have a choice between vendor lock-in and the options that open source offers.

    “Choice” is one of the most sought-after values in IT management. Most IT managers want to create and maintain agile environments where they can quickly flex and change to adapt to the emerging needs of their business.

    Choice, however, can be a double-edged sword. While in one way it cuts through delay and inertia to enable great responsiveness, in another way it can easily demand more resources, which often means additional expense.

  • More Fedora 24/25 family pimpage

    Fedora, Fedora, Fedora, Soltanto Fedora, Fedora tra noi, here's a song for you. But the reason we are here is not to tickle the nostalgia glands. Instead, we want to spend a little more time making Fedora extra useful, beautiful and functional, also known in the professional circles as pimping.

    We've done this before time and time again, including the recent stint with Fedora 24, and the installation & review of Fedora 25, and now we will do some of this magic. I would like to show you a few more tips and tricks that can enhance your Fedora experience. This article should also work nicely with my recently published Gnome accessibility guide. Fedora me.

  • Fedora 27 Will Indeed Eliminate Alpha Releases

    Last month we reported on Fedora 27 looking to drop alpha releases and now that change has been approved.

    Fedora 27 will be the distribution's first release not doing any alpha milestones. Instead, the distribution is trying to focus on better daily quality of Fedora Rawhide / F27, similar to Ubuntu not doing alpha/beta releases and openSUSE Leap also deciding to go a similar route.

Fedora 26 Linux Alpha Freeze Now in Effect, It Is Expected to Launch on March 21

Filed under
Red Hat

Red Hat's Mohan Boddu announced earlier that the forthcoming Alpha development milestone of the Fedora 26 Linux operating system is now officially in freeze stage and is expected to launch later this month, on the 21st.

As reported by us last month, the Fedora 26 Linux release was delayed by a week, and it now looks like today, March 7, 2017, is a very important day in the release schedule of the upcoming operating system as it marks the Alpha Freeze, Software String Freeze, and Bodhi activation point. These milestones should have happened a week ago if that one-week delay hadn't occurred.

Development News: GitLab 9.0, CRAN, and 2038 Bug

  • GitLab 9.0 released with Subgroups and Deploy Boards
    Today we are releasing GitLab 9.0, 18 months after releasing 8.0. We've made significant advances to GitLab during this period, shipping a version every single month on the 22nd. Let's quickly recap how far we've come since 8.0, and see those features dovetailing into today's 9.0 release. Or jump ahead to 9.0 features.

    A number of packages on CRAN use Suggests: casually.
  • 2038: only 21 years away
    Sometimes it seems that things have gone relatively quiet on the year-2038 front. But time keeps moving forward, and the point in early 2038 when 32-bit time_t values can no longer represent times correctly is now less than 21 years away. That may seem like a long time, but the relatively long life cycle of many embedded systems means that some systems deployed today will still be in service when that deadline hits. One of the developers leading the effort to address this problem is Arnd Bergmann; at Linaro Connect 2017 he gave an update on where that work stands. That work, he said, is proceeding on three separate fronts, the first of which is the kernel itself. He has been working for the last five years to try to prepare the kernel for 2038. Much of that work involves converting 32-bit timestamps to 64-bit values, even on 32-bit systems. Some 32-bit timestamps also show up in the user-space API, which complicates the issue considerably. There is a plan for the enhancement of the user-space API with 2038-clean versions of the problematic system calls, but it has not yet gotten upstream. One recent exception is the statx() system call, which was merged for 4.11; statx() will serve as the year-2038-capable version of the stat() family of calls. There are quite a few other system calls still needing 2038-clean replacements, though.

    One of the key advantages of Open sauce software is that it is supposed to be easier to spot and fix software flaws, however Linux has had a local privilege escalation flaw for 11 years and no-one has noticed. The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2017-6074, is over 11 years old and was likely introduced in 2005 when the Linux kernel gained support for the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP). It was discovered last week and was patched by the kernel developers on Friday.

    However, despite these improvements in code cleanness and security technologies, it hasn’t quite proven itself when faced with experienced hackers at contests such as Pwn2Own. At last year’s edition of Pwn2Own, Edge proved to be a little better than Internet Explorer and Safari, but it still ended up getting hacked twice, while Chrome was only partially hacked once.

    Things seem to have gotten worse, rather than better, for Edge. At this year’s Pwn2Own, Microsoft’s browser was hacked no less than five times.

    And for every hack perpetrated against Edge, there was a corresponding attack against the Windows 10 kernel, indicating that it has a way to go in terms of security, according to Tom's Hardware.

  • An Android Phone Makes A Better Server Than You’d Think
    There was a time a few years ago when the first Android phones made it to market, that they seemed full of promise as general purpose computers. Android is sort of Linux, right, or so the story went, so of course you must be able to run Linux on an Android phone and do all sorts of cool stuff with it. As anyone who tried to root an Android phone from 2010 will tell you, it was a painful and unrewarding process. There was normally a convoluted rooting process followed by somehow squeezing your own Linux filesystem tree onto the device, then chroot-ing into it. You’d then have to set up a VNC server and VNC into it, and eventually you’d feel immensely proud of your very slow tiny-screen Linux desktop that you’d slaved over creating. It was one of those things that’s simple in theory, but extremely convoluted in practice.
