Ubuntu

Coming out on October 26, 2006 is the final release of Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft -- along with all of the Ubuntu derivatives. While it has only been six months since the belated release of Dapper Drake 6.06, Edgy Eft has shaped up very nicely. Here at Phoronix we have taken a look at the design advancements found in the Ubuntu 6.10 Release Candidate.

Upgrading to 6.10 from 6.06

6.06 is a superior OS to upgrade to 6.10 was a total disaster and !@$#!# my system and I lost EVERYTHING why not have a program/script to do a clean uninstall if 6.10 dosn't work it killed 'X' and ignored my Nvidea drivers that worked fine with 6.06. I tried this three times and each time it crashed I will waite to upgrade again. Ubuntu install clean saw everthing the printing was flawless rating out of 10 I give 6.06 a 12 I even deleted my Windows XP.

Thanks

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20.

A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
