3rd Party Software in Fedora Workstation

Filed under
Red Hat
GNOME

So you have probably noticed by now that we started offering some 3rd party software in the latest Fedora Workstation namely Google Chrome, Steam, NVidia driver and PyCharm. This has come about due to a long discussion in the Fedora community on how we position Fedora Workstation and how we can improve our user experience. The principles we base of this policy you can read up on in this policy document. To sum it up though the idea is that while the Fedora operating system you install will continue as it has been for the last decade to be based on only free software (with an exception for firmware) you will be able to more easily find and install the plethora of applications out there through our software store application, GNOME Software. We also expect that as the world of Linux software moves towards containers in general and Flatpaks specifically we will have an increasing number of these 3rd party applications available in Fedora.

  • Next round of Fedora classroom sessions: call for instructors

    We had quite a good turnout for the first round of Fedora classroom sessions, so we're now trying to plan the second round. We need you to instruct a session, and so, pass on the knowledge you've accrued over the years to others in the community. A lot of the folks that attend these sessions are newbies who are still only testing the waters and haven't contributed yet, and it makes it a lot easier for them to learn some skills from a contributor.

The Linux Fedora is one of the best distros and can be considered really stable to use in the production environment for end users, the first release was in 2003 with the name Fedora Core 1 and was based on Red Hat Linux who steel based nowadays.

I chose wrote this article about Fedora because it gave a good experience and results in a real production environment, for advanced and beginners users with a lot of corporate variables, purposes, and activities.

The environment of this article consists of joining a Fedora Workstation on a Domain Controller who can be Samba 4 or Microsoft Active Directory, set up the authentication process for domain users and domain admins on a workstation, local or remotely through ssh.

This article so does mention about some proprietary software for Linux, we must considerate that on the real environment a lot of resources are necessary according to each business needs.

Fedora 28 - Improvements drowned in slowness

Filed under
Red Hat
Reviews

Fedora 28 is buggy, riddled with problems and that awful performance issue, some good and brilliant points, and it takes a lot of hard work to tame and put into order. In other words, it's a perfect toy for the typical developer, I guess. For ordinary folks, the good points of being able to play music, connect phones and find nice software are definitely appreciated. But they are more than offset by Gnome 3 being useless and hard to make less useless, inadequate default font settings, tons of visual inconsistencies, occasional app and kernel crashes, and dreadful performance and resource utilization.

This distro makes sense as a test bed for software, nothing more. It is not suitable for day-to-day use, and there are too many problems. I find this sad, because RHEL and CentOS are the exact opposites of this equation, and that means a person interested in a Red Hat distro for their home use will probably have to compromise in some way. All in all, worth checking, but it's a tinkerer's trinket, not a system for serious use. None of the spring crop seem to be. Anyway, feel like testing, go ahead. But I still find the older 24/25 releases to have been much better. 4/10. Take care, freedom fighters.

Fedora Proposal, Fedora App and COPR

Filed under
Red Hat
  • Fedora 29 Proposal "i686 Is For x86-64" Would Allow More Optimizations, Require SSE2

    For years Fedora has been demoting 32-bit x86 and there's been efforts to drop 32-bit kernel builds and related efforts while the latest x86 proposal causing some controversy is the "i686 is for x86-64" feature proposal.

    The Red Hat backed proposal is to have Fedora cater its i686 RPM packages more for modern x86-64 systems. With the continued push away from 32-bit x86 support, this proposal is about no longer configuring the i686 RPM builds for original i686 CPUs but to instead target the original x86-64 CPUs. The reason for this i686 package discussion is, of course, about multi-lib RPMs with some users still being dependent upon 32-bit libraries, etc. Since most (all?) Fedora i686 package users should be on an x86-64 capable CPU if planning to run the Fedora 29 release coming out later this year.

Flatpak 1.0 Linux Application Sandboxing & Distribution Framework Is Almost Here

While it's becoming very popular among Linux users as it is more and more adopted by Linux OS vendors, Flatpak is still considered an "under development" technology, and so it's not yet promoted on a mass scale as its rival Snap is by Ubuntu's mother company Canonical. However, Flatpak as it is right now, it's very usable, but it is yet to achieve the 1.0 version milestone, which usually marks a project as mature and ready for mass deployment. And it's now more closer than ever as the development team announced today the availability of the first Flatpak 1.0 pre-release version.
