On September 22nd this year, Fedora turned 10 years old. Since the historic announcement ten years ago, the Fedora Project has remained a massive volunteer-driven community effort that complements the Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and has led to several popular spin-offs such as CentOS and Scientific Linux. To celebrate its 10th birthday, I would like to share several interesting tidbits about Fedora Linux.
Red Hat recently appointed Robyn Bergeron as the new Fedora Project Leader. In this exclusive interview Robyn talks about the upcoming release of Fedora (17), the role of a FPL, the relationship between Fedora and Red Hat and much more. Read on...
Review of the popular CERN-made distribution
If you are a small or even medium-sized business on the market, you know that every dollar, pound, euro or yen saved could help you grow as an enterprise. Young companies struggle to survive in this highly competitive market as much as possible and we all know that in this day and age a solid IT infrastructure is a prime factor in holding a business together, no matter the size or the profits.

This installation guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Drupal 7 on a Fedora Linux system. The guide consists of 6 easy to follow steps to conclude whole installation. If you are just little bit curious about the new Drupal 7 release it is time to see what it is about. Be aware that installation of web applications on Linux systems using SELinux such as Fedora or RedHat is now little bit more complicated since changing permissions with chmod command may not always solve the problem.
This list features all configuration files related to packages commonly found on RPM ( Redhat Package Management ) Linux systems. List was extracted from Fedora Linux, however it may also find its use by all Linux users running any RPM based Linux systems.
To find configuration files open a search dialog of your browser ( CTRL + F ) and search for "Package:<package name>" .
This list is based on Fedora 14 Linux and will be updated with every new Fedora stable version !
Although you have exchanged public keys with your remote server to avoid that boring bit of entering your super long secure user password everytime you are about to login, you still need to face ssh syntax in order get someting done. Yes, it is just single line command with few words but typing that line 30 times a day can take you at least 10 minutes of problem solving time, bore you and more iportatbly it may even give you a headache. This article outlines two alternative options on how to make ssh login procedure easier and thus keeping you sane longer.
starts today. 3 days of tech goodness in sunny Arizona. Things kick off with the orientation, BarCamp pitches and the State of Fedora Address at 09:00. Presentation sessions run all day Saturday and Sunday. Hackfests start on Sunday afternoon with more scheduled for Monday.
Although FAT32 or FAT16 are very old file systems, which reflects on their poor performance in comparison with other file system alternatives they are still widely used by many electronic devices. Usually, these devices include USB stick's, digital cameras , camcorders and etc. Chances are that you own and store personal data on a device with FAT flesystem is very high as is a likelihood of an accidental deletion of your important data. In this article we will use testdisk utility to undelete files from FAT file system.
This article provides few simple scripts to scan and monitor network using combination of bash and ping command. Obviously, these scripts are no match to a full monitoring dedicated software like nagios but they could be useful for a small home brand networks, where implementing sophisticated monitoring system can become an overhead.
Sep 2009 Port Check Program (in C) Part 4 In part 1 an examination of creating an ultra simple single port single host port check program was done. Part two of the series the code was broken out between a header file and source file, input validation added, a usage message defined and a Makefile was setup for simple recompiling. The most recent installment added a timed host pre-check component to ensure that a connect() would not potentially "sit and spin" when a host is not available.
In Part 1 of the series we looked at the early X window managers that ran on X display protocol based systems. The scale and range of them was from the very beginning where a user was presented with a menu and windows and little else. In Part 2 of the series we delved into desktop window manager environments, the area in between a full desktop system and a simple window manager; these were window managers which provided things like application bars, icon management of some sort and flexible interfaces to create modules or widgets for the environment but did not include (a lot of...) inherent applications. In the third part of the series we will examine the two main desktops in the X world, a look at the two newer desktop environments that are blurring between application centric/environment centric window managers, some core X technology that can enhance the X experience and finally a look ahead.
In part one we wrote a basic bare bones port check program, in this part of the series we take the next step and fixup a few issues plus begin breaking out the code. This small program is a decent introduction (but definitely not definitive) to network programming.
In part 1 of the series we looked at the early X window managers that ran on X display protocol based systems. The scale and range of them was from the very beginning where a user was presented with a menu and windows and little else (perhaps a clock or loadmeter) up to what could be considered the first window manager that went beyond providing the basics to providing more of an environment and extensibility through modules that allowed other hackers to "join in the fun". In this part 2 of the series two more distinct groups of window managers will be peeked at; first a look at the evolution of that first "more of an environment than just window managing" software; many of which cropped up right around the same time (within a few years of eachother). Second the kickback against large scale environments with an examination of a breed of window managers designed to be ultra light/fast while still preserving good looks.
The news that Wikipedia was in the process of switching away from Red Hat and Fedora—and to Ubuntu—has stirred up some Fedora folks. The relatively short, 13 month support cycle for Fedora releases was fingered as a major part of the problem in a gigantic thread on the fedora-devel mailing list. Some would like to see Fedora be supported for longer, so that it could be used in production environments, but that is a fundamental misunderstanding of what Fedora has set out to do. The idea of supporting Fedora beyond the standard "two releases plus one month", which should generally yield 13 months, is not new. It was, after all, the idea behind the Fedora Legacy project. Unfortunately, Fedora Legacy ceased operations at the end of 2006, largely due to a lack of interested package maintainers. So, calls for a "long term support" (LTS) version of Fedora are met with a fair amount of skepticism.
How to use RedHat grub to retrieve a lost root password.
pkr utility does rudimentry packet sniffing and will alarm on certain packet errors. It is known to work on the following systems and distributions:
If you're a Fedora user the end of May means one thing...time for a new release! This year was no different as the Fedora project continued its aggressive six month release schedule. Fedora 7, code named “Moonshine”, is the latest version of the Red Hat influenced Linux distribution. Fedora regulars will note the absence of the word “Core” in the new name. This isn't the only change with this release. We'll delve into what's new in 7 as well as review Fedora from a desktop standpoint.
Not exactly the clearest of titles... recently I had to setup and configure several subvesion servers that use webdav for authentication. Setting up the authentication and repositories for a single repository is pretty straightforward. If many repositories need to be created and maintained that are completely seperate, then a script (or set of scripts) definitely makes life easier. In the text below, just such a scenario cropped up and my first pass at working a script.
New release of nettest is available. Nettest is a network testing tool originally developed by SGI which I am maintaining out of need.
It took me over a decade to figure out that I wanted to promote Free and Open Source Software. I have one person to thank for getting the gears rolling, and inspiring me to be what I want to be and nothing else that I didn't want to be. Thank you Dad, and Happy Father's Day.
One of theneat things a user can do on Unix is play around with the Bourne Again Shell (bash). An even more interesting thing is how the environment can be tweaked to a particular user's preference. In this text a look at how the Bash prompt can be manipulated by inserting commands and even shell code functions directly into the prompt itself.
The tech giant on Wednesday reaffirmed its commitment to the open source developer community, in the wake of Red Hat's Fedora Legacy Project disbanding. In the past month, Novell's Open Suse supplanted Ubuntu as the No. 1 Linux choice, according to the download access-tracking DistroWatch.com. Fedora? It fell to No. 3.
Lack of contributions from outside programmers, funding among reasons why Fedora Legacy project is winding down.
In case any of you are not aware, the Fedora Legacy project is in the process of shutting down. The current model for supporting maintenance distributions is being re-examined. In the meantime, we are unable to extend support to older Fedora Core releases as we had planned. As of now, Fedora Core 4 and earlier distributions are no longer being maintained.
As part of its 10th anniversary, IBM’s alphaWorks took a look at how things started and what’s yet to come.

Today we interviewed Tim Baggett who used a bunch of Open Source applications to map a balloon race!
"We needed a mapping system for tracking long distance balloon flights that served two purposes. One was for the benefit of the race organizers who constantly monitor the position of the teams flying the balloons, while the second purpose was to provide real-time tracking updates to a web page so the general public can watch the event unfold. It's a bit like watching a three day horse race! After exploring several other possibilities for a solution, I settled on using the UMN MapServer, PHP MapScript, GDAL/OGR, Postgres/PostGIS and Apache2 on a RedHat Fedora3 system."
This is a very good article which tells the history of linux in a unique angle. It is peppered with the photos of all the leaders who helped shape Linux to the robust OS it is now. A must read for all linux enthusiasts.
Due to an error I introduced into a publish script, the apt metadata information for RHL 7.3 and RHL 9 had not been updated since Sept 15 of this year. I have fixed this error and uploaded the latest information, which was generated on Nov 13. I apologize for any problems this may cause.
