Fedora Desktop and Computing

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Fedora 18 was released this week and I finally got around to installing it today. To be honest, on either my laptop or desktop I have not really used Fedora much since Fedora 14. I have been incredibly happy with CentOS for over a year and a half now, and I (begrudgingly) accepted Windows 7 […]

Downside to Enterprise Linux

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

(Note: For the purpose of this post CentOS is equivalent to RHEL)
It has been about 2 and 1/2 years since I built a dedicated server and chose CentOS instead of Fedora. Since I installed CentOS 5.1 I have used the upgrade process 4 times with no problems bringing me to version 5.5 with practically […]

Fedora and Linux Blogs

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

I know the trend now is “status updates”, but I still enjoy reading blogs more. And I’ve been doing lots more reading and far less writing lately.
I thought I might share the Fedora and Linux blogs that I enjoy. (Sorry I don’t have an OPML link).

All-In-One Configuration Tools

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

As I mentioned previously, I run many sites on my web server. Yesterday I decided to clean up some sites that their owners had neglected or not used. One such site was running Apache Tomcat Java Server, which I did not care to leave running.
Now I, like many users of commercial hosting plans, […]

Supported Features

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Sounds like something Fedora users might relate to…

I hear many of you finally have smooth Flash support, but me and my Intel card are still waiting on a kernel patch somewhere in the pipeline before we can watch Jon Stewart smoothly.

64-bit Linux

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

There was some discussion on the fedora-devel list about changing the default architecture for 32-bit Fedora. Which would mean that users running 32-bit Fedora with modern CPU’s will see some improvement, while older hardware will need to be supported by some secondary means or not at all.
There are some good points in the thread, […]

Mailing List Permalinks

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Currently I am subscribed to 19 mailing lists and there are a handful more that I plan on joining (when I get around to it). The benefits of a mailing list (especially in the Linux world) is the massive amount of useful information that is often shared by developers and experienced users that may […]

Installer Formats and Adobe Reader

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

While open source PDF readers have significantly improved, many people still use Adobe Reader. While Adobe has had a mixed history of supporting their software in Linux/Unix, recently they have significantly improved.
There is a well written post about installer formats on the Acroread Unix blog. I recommend just reading over the post, even […]
