Most popular web browsers among Fedora users

Filed under

Web

Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world. It is so popular that some call it a new Internet Explorer. But that’s based on global stats. In Red Hat, I’m responsible for web browsers, so I wondered what are the most popular web browsers among Fedora users. So I asked through Fedora accounts on Facebook and Google+: “Which browser do you use the most in Fedora?”

  • Fedora LiveUSB Creator artwork

    As my first job as Red Hat design intern I received from Mo a task to create some icons for Fedora LiveUSB Creator. The liveusb-creator is a cross-platform tool for easily installing live operating systems on to USB flash drives. A Live USB system stored on flash memory, sometimes called a stick, lets you boot any USB-bootable computer into a Fedora operating system environment without writing to that computer’s hard disk.

  • LINE Messenger on Linux
  • Bodhi in Fedora 23 is Ready
  • Got the issue resolved and back to work after exams Smile

    And also according to the feedback it has also been suggested to use a footer similar to the one in getfedora.org. Hence the modified design of the footer is also depicted in the mockups below. And as always feedback on these are welcome.

  • Please sign off your patches

    One aspect of open source that appeals to many people is the idea that anyone can contribute. All it takes is a great idea, a little bit of work, and you can have fame, glory, and more conference t-shirts than you know what to do with. The reality is often not quite as simple for many reasons. A common complication is software licencing. There are plenty of other locations talking about open source software licencing and the complications there of so this one will be narrowly focused and have a simple request: When submitting patches for the Linux kernel, whether to official kernel mailings lists or to Fedora, please remember sign off your patches.

More Reliable Upgrades Hoped For With Fedora 23

Filed under
Red Hat

It looks like reworking the Fedup upgrade tool may still happen for Fedora 23. The upgrade to this upgrade tool would involve relying on DNF and systemd functionality to provide more reliable Fedora system upgrades.

Earlier this year was talk of replacing Fedup in Fedora 23 to overcome existing problems with this upgrade tool that's been affected by issues in the past. Because of Fedup reliability concerns is also why I haven't upgraded to Fedora 22 on my main workstation over Fedup frights.

Fedora's Rawhide Kernel Adds In KDBUS Support, Ready For Testing

Filed under
Red Hat

Lennart Poettering announced today that KDBUS is now in Rawhide. "Josh [Boyer] thankfully added it to the Rawhide kernel packages, and our systemd RPMs come with built-in support, too now. If you are running an up-to-date Rawhide system adding "kdbus=1" to your kernel command line is hence everything you need to run kdbus instead of dbus-daemon. (No additional RPMs need to be installed.) If you do, things should just work the same way as before, if we did everything right. By adding or dropping "kdbus=1" to/from the command line you can enable kdbus or revert back to dbus1 on each individual boot."

Benchmarking Debian GNU/Hurd 2015 vs. GNU/Linux

After a reminder this week from a Phoronix Premium member about some fresh Debian GNU/Hurd benchmarks, here are some fresh results comparing this version of Debian with the Hurd kernel instead of the Linux kernel. The results for this comparison are done against Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy. For those unfamiliar, Debian GNU/Hurd is the GNU user-land but running atop Hurd -- similar to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD being powered by the FreeBSD kernel. On the topic of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, I'll probably run a fresh kFreeBSD vs. Linux comparison again soon. Read more
