Subject: Implementing UEFI Secure Boot in Fedora

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

It's not really an option to force all our users to play with hard to find firmware settings before they can run Fedora. We've been working on a plan for dealing with this. It's not ideal, but of all the approaches we've examined we feel that this one offers the best balance between letting users install Fedora while still permitting user freedom.

Subject: Open Source BlackBerry: RIM's Last Resort

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I continue to believe that there is room for more mobile operating systems then we have now. Blackberry is a trusted brand and, if open, I think developers would be more willing to expand and extend its capabilities in ways and to places that RIM was just incapable of taking it.

Subject: Google Points Finger at Microsoft, Nokia

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Google Inc. GOOG -1.82% said it filed an antitrust complaint Thursday in Europe arguing that Microsoft Corp. MSFT -2.13% and Nokia Corp. are using proxy companies to brandish patents and hurt the prospects of Google's Android mobile-phone software to the advantage of Microsoft's technology. Google also plans to share its complaint about patent "trolls" with U.S. competition regulators. The Internet-search giant alleges that Microsoft and Nokia have entered into agreements that enable entities such as Canada-based Mosaid Technologies Inc. to legally enforce their patent rights and share the resulting revenue.

Subject: High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.0.x On Debian Squeeze

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Debian Squeeze) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Debian Squeeze as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

So, you just got back from a trip, and you have tons of photos you want to share with the world. While there are dozens of photo sharing services to choose from, uploading megabytes of photos doesn't sound like a fun pastime. And why bother with a third-party service if you already have a Linux-based server?

Subject: Detailed Fedora 17 Review

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I must admit that Fedora was the first GNU/Linux distribution that introduced me to this world. We used it as the default OS in Linux For You magazine where I worked as a writer and editor. Fedora was also the first GNU/Linux OS that I installed on my PC. I moved to PCLinuxOS, then Mandriva, then Debian and then to Ubuntu. These days I multiboot between Ubuntu, openSUSE and some random OS. I stayed away from Fedora due to RPM Hell. I still remember being burnt by it in Fedora 14. But things have changed dramatically. Fedora is now extremely useful for novice users. I build confidence in Fedora with version 16 and planned to revisit it as 17 hits the Internet. I confess, I never used Fedora as my primary OS, outside my work at LFY.

In spite of the fact that companies are expanding their data centers, IDC reports that the traditional x86 server market is in decline, possibly because IT is moving toward smaller, more cost-effective and energy-efficient alternatives like high-density blades.

Ever since the Stuxnet worm was first discovered in the wild by cybersecurity experts, the world has wondered who had developed the worm, and why. Once it became known the primary target of the worm was Iran’s Natanz nuclear enrichment facility, suspicion immediately formed around Israeli and/or U.S. involvement.
