  • Testing Red Hat Enterprise Linux the Microsoft way

    Pairwise (a.k.a. all-pairs) testing is an effective test case generation technique that is based on the observation that most faults are caused by interactions of at most two factors! Pairwise-generated test suites cover all combinations of two therefore are much smaller than exhaustive ones yet still very effective in finding defects. This technique has been pioneered by Microsoft in testing their products. For an example please see their GitHub repo!

  • Onboarding New Contributors in the Fedora Project

    Fedora is a community with a lot of moving parts and has at least five different ways of thinking about new contributor onboarding. Unlike some single code-base communities where there is a focus around a repository or a bug tracker, Fedora is constantly working on lots of things and the linkages can be hard to see. Some of those activities are directly (in a creation sense) related to the amazing Linux distribution we produce.

How Red Hat's strategy helps CIOs take baby steps to the cloud

Filed under
Red Hat

Within 10-20 years, virtually all computing will reside on public clouds, AWS chief Andy Jassy declared in 2015. However, even if one agrees with this prediction, getting there will involve a heck of a lot of ugly reality between now and then. That "reality" involves a roiling cauldron of public, private, and hybrid cloud services, not to mention earth-bound, on-premises servers. In the midst of that infrastructural confusion, there is opportunity for someone to provide consistency at the app layer to which developers can write.

  • Single images and page sizes

    "The year of Linux on the desktop" is an old running joke. This has resulted in many "The year of X on the Y" spin off jokes. One of these that's close to my heart is "The year of the arm64 server". ARM has long dominated the embedded space and the next market they intend to capture is the server space. As some people will be more than happy to tell you, moving from the embedded space to the enterprise class server space has involved some growing pains (and the occasional meme). Most of the bickering^Wdiscussion comes from the fact that the embedded world has different requirements than the server world. Trying to support all requirements in a single tree often means making a choice for one versus the other.


    Fedora is a production system and it does need to be optimized. There's been fantastic work recently to support more single board computers like the Raspberry Pi in Fedora. Thanks to single image efforts, the same kernel can boot on both a Raspberry Pi and an enterprise class ARM server. Booting doesn't mean work well though. Single Board Computers can come with as little as 512MB of RAM. Enterprise servers have significantly more.

  • Factory 2, Sprint 14

    Hello all. Bi-weekly update from the Factory 2 team on our work here. We have three videos this sprint.

Currently this theme is compatible with Gtk 3.24+/3.22/3.20. If you intend to use this theme in the Xfce desktop then you must use xfwm4 from "Greybird/Adwaita" since that is not packed with this theme.

Hands on with the Pinebook

The Pine A64 was a 64-bit Quad-Core Single Board Computer which was kickstarted at the tail end of 2015 for delivery in the middle of 2016. Costing just $15, and hailed as a “Raspberry Pi killer,” the board raised $1.7 million from 36,000 backers. It shipped to its backers to almost universally poor reviews. Now they’re back, this time with a laptop—a 11.6-inch model for $89, or a 14-inch model for $99. Both are powered by the same 64-bit Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 as the original Pine A64 board, but at least Pine are doing a much better job this time around of managing user expectations. Read more

  • DirectFB Is Back To Being Dormant
    Back in August of 2015, DirectFB disappeared with its project site and code vanishing. Last November DirectFB re-appeared along with a new site and renewed focus on the project. Unfortunately, it's once again gone silent. With all the news this month about Ubuntu dropping Mir / Unity 8 and the continued work by many different desktop/compositor teams on Wayland, I was curious this weekend to check on how DirectFB is doing in 2017... Sadly, as the new DirectFB site launched last November is now down again. The original DirectFB (dot) org web-site remains squatted. I've been unable to find any other "new" DirectFB website.
