Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 beta out now

Filed under
Red Hat

Yes, Red Hat's forthcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.9 will come with stability and security improvements. That's not the real news. The big story is it supports the next generation of cloud-native applications through an updated Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 base image.

I've said it before. I'll say it again. Red Hat's foundation is Linux, but its future is in the cloud. This beta release is one more example of Red Hat's vision for tomorrow.

According to the vendor, the new Red Hat CloudForms will enable IT teams to increase service delivery while focusing on critical, business-impacting issues.

  • FEDORA and GNOME on VBOX at USIL

    I have started Linux classes at University as a professor this 2017! and the course is a review of the GNU/Linux story, followed by the installation and the use of commands to manage the terminal. At the end of the course, some services are also set to prepare students into the IT Infrastructure world.

  • PHP version 5.6.30RC1, 7.0.15RC1 and 7.1.1RC1
  • Tools I use daily

    I use Fedora rawhide on my laptop, which is my primary client machine. I don’t have a desk and desktop and monitors, just the laptop and a comfy chair. At home I have two dell CS24 servers (one is a test instance and has all my test instances for Fedora maintainers on it, the other is my ‘production’ server and is the firewall and hosts the primary server vm that handles all my email and other services for scrye.com). I have various small arm devices, some of which are on and some of which are off at any given time.

Snappy vs. Flatpak: Unified Linux Packaging Systems

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Red Hat
Ubuntu

Getting Linux applications to run on servers is not always as easy as it should be, thanks to the myriad software packaging formats that various Linux distributions use. Over the course of 2016, two efforts really ramped up to help solve that challenge in the form of Snappy and Flatpak.

The promise of both Snappy and Flatpak is to deliver an approach that enables software developers to build software once and then have it bundled in a package that can run on multiple distributions. Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu Linux, is a big advocate of Snappy.

GoboLinux: A Linux Distribution With New Filesystem Hierarchy

GoboLinux introduces a lot of new ideas and designs into the Linux distributions world. Things like the filesystem hierarchy and the compiling scripts are amazing examples of what “modernizing” Linux distributions may really mean. However, the distribution wasn’t intended to be “user-friendly” or “ready-out-of-the-box”. Because of this, it can be said actually that the distribution manages to achieve its goals. An experianced user with a lot of time would definitely enjoy using and tweaking GoboLinux to fit his needs and learn in his way. Read more

Vivo V5 Plus review: The Android phone for stylish selfies

The days of shelling out a large sum of money to buy a smartphone that offers premium looks and performance are long gone. Manufacturers like OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, etc are offering superior performance at significantly lower prices. These manufacturers tend to add their own USP to a smartphone, which you might not always get on an Apple or Samsung. In Vivo’s case, it has launched a new mid-range premium device called V5 Plus with the highlight being a dual selfie camera. Vivo V5 Plus can be described as many things, but original. The phone borrows its design cues from multiple flagship devices, but clearly its major influence is the iPhone 7. But is this dual-selfie camera, iPhone-lookalike worth its price? Here’s our review Read more
