  • Fedora 25 Linux Operating System Cleared for Landing on November 22, 2016

    Today, November 17, 2016, was the second and final Fedora 25 Final Go/No-Go Meeting, where Fedora Project's development have finally approved the Fedora 25 Linux operating system for landing on November 22.

    As reported last week right here, in this space, the highly anticipated Fedora 25 operating system was delayed a second time during the first Fedora 25 Final Go/No-Go Meeting, due to a bug that would not allow the GRUB bootloader to be displayed when installing the Linux-based operating system alongside Mac OS X.

  • Flatpak Reviews - Linux Apps For All Distributions

    So Canonical sought to solve the problem with distributing applications on Linux due to the very many and different Linux distributions around and each with their own packaging formats. So Canonical introduced Snaps. Whew, that would be great. But the again, Canonical isn’t the only ones hoping to crack this problem on Linux. In fact, there are two other frameworks that are seeking to be the one stop app framework for distributing application on Linux. There is Flatpak and the AppImage. So today we take a look at Flatpak and what it means to Linux.

How Red Hat aims to make Kubernetes boring...and successful

Filed under
Red Hat

Many enterprise software companies try to jazz up their wares with fancy buzzwords (Cloud! Machine learning! Augmented reality!). Not Red Hat. Red Hat plays a very different game. Instead of trying to make software exciting, its stated goal is to make software very, very boring, as Red Hat Chief ARM Architect Jon Masters told a crowd at Supercomputing 2016.

By "boring" Masters didn't mean uninteresting. Instead, as he went on to explain, Red Hat "make[s] stuff that just works." This message plays well to risk-averse CIOs.

  • New TLS algorithm priority config for libvirt with gnutls on Fedora >= 25

    Libvirt has long supported use of TLS for its remote API service, using the gnutls library as its backend. When negotiating a TLS session, there are a huge number of possible algorithms that could be used and the client & server need to decide on the best one, where “best” is commonly some notion of “most secure”. The preference for negotiation is expressed by simply having an list of possible algorithms, sorted best to worst, and the client & server choose the first matching entry in their respective lists. Historically libvirt has not expressed any interest in the handshake priority configuration, simply delegating the decision to the gnutls library on that basis that its developers knew better than libvirt developers which are best. In gnutls terminology, this means that libvirt has historically used the “DEFAULT” priority string.

  • Base Runtime and the Generational Core

    Modularity (formerly, Modularization) is an ongoing initiative in Fedora to resolve the issue of divergent, occasionally conflicting lifecycles of different components. A module provides functionality (such as a web server) and includes well-integrated and well-tested components (such as Apache httpd and the libraries on which it depends). It can be deployed into production in various ways: as “classic” RPM packages or a container image, and is updated as a whole. Different modules can emphasize new features, stability, security, etc. differently.

  • Updating Nagios in EPEL-7 (Looking for Testers)

    One of the projects on my plate this year is to update the Fedora Project nagios server so that monitoring is done through a better template system in ansible. [The main reasons for using nagios versus going to another system are the following: a) We already have nagios in place and have used it for years, Cool it doesn't use/need a database backend for either its webpages or monitoring systems, c) before I can compare other systems I need an updated version of nagios to know what features we would get.]

Open Source Software A Core Competency For Effective Tech M&A

Imagine your company just acquired its competitor for $100 million. Now imagine the company’s most important asset – its proprietary software – is subject to third-party license conditions that require the proprietary software to be distributed free of charge or in source code form. Or, imagine these license conditions are discovered late in the diligence process, and the cost to replace the offending third-party software will costs tens of thousands of dollars and take months to remediate. Both scenarios exemplify the acute, distinct and often overlooked risks inherent to the commercial use of open source software. An effective tech M&A attorney must appreciate these risks and be prepared to take the steps necessary to mitigate or eliminate them. Over the past decade, open source software has become a mainstay in the technology community. Since its beginnings, open source software has always been viewed as a way to save money and jumpstart development projects, but it is increasingly being looked to for its quality solutions and operational advantages. Today, only a fraction of technology companies do not use open source software in any way. For most of the rest, it is mission critical. Read more
