  • Flatpaks for Fedora 27

    A proposal to add Flatpak as an option for distributing desktop applications in Fedora 27 has recently made an appearance. It is meant as an experiment of sorts to see how well Flatpak and RPM will play together—and to fix any problems found. There is a view that containers are the future, on the desktop as well as the server; Flatpaks would provide Fedora one possible path toward that future. The proposal sparked a huge thread on the Fedora devel mailing list; while the proposal itself doesn't really change much for those uninterested in Flatpaks, some are concerned with where Fedora packaging might be headed once the experiment ends.

    Flatpak, which was originally known as xdg-app, is both a packaging format and a mechanism to sandbox applications that is inspired, to some extent, by container technologies (e.g. Docker). It is meant to make it easier for users to install applications by bundling any needed dependencies (beyond the standard Flatpak runtime bundle) into the package. Flatpak would make it easier to get the "latest and greatest" version of an application or to run multiple versions side by side. The sandboxing features are targeted at providing secure compartmentalization so the applications cannot interfere with each other—or escape their sandbox if they get compromised. The vision is that projects can create a single Flatpak that could be installed on multiple distributions.

  • The little bit different Fedora 26 Release Party – Part 4

    The Release Party did already happen 3 days ago but I been busy since then and also a little bit tired, so thats why this post comes a bit later. The students had time until Thursday in the afternoon, to correct the slides with the things we told them. I got them in the evening, but they still had some issues. So we decided that I do the correction of the slides together with them on Saturday morning at 11am. Therefore I had to go earlier to PNC as originally planned and having lunch around there.
    But as always something happens and you have to change plans, as I arrived at PNC there was no electricity. Its not a big problem, they have a generator for this cases but as generator hours are not cheap, you have to get permission of the general manager to start it and this took a while.
    So we started a bit later and we also had some problems to solve, but the students saw why you should set on free software, I could open their Powerpoint presentations in LibreOffice but they could not open odp files in M$ office. But we managed to make all left changes and have after that a short lunch.

The Red Hat Way

  • Red Hat wants to make cold-shouldered OpenStack red hot
    At OpenStack Summit in Boston last May, some speculated that the event might be the last gasp for OpenStack — an open-source platform for cloud computing and infrastructure-as-service. Granted, OpenStack was one of the less hyped open-source projects of the past year. But renewed community and end-user interest is breathing fresh life into the platform, according to Rob Young (pictured), senior manager of virtualization product and strategy at Red Hat Inc. Telcos and others are adopting OpenStack “because of the simplification of what was once complex, but also in the cost savings that can be realized by managing your own cloud within a hybrid cloud environment,” Young said.
  • Improved multimedia support with Pipewire in Fedora 27
    Pipewire — a new project of underlying Linux infrastructure to handle multimedia better — has just been officially launched. The project’s main goal is to improve the handling of both audio and video. Additionally, Pipewire introduces a security model to allow easy interaction with multimedia devices from containerized and sandboxed applications, i.e. Flatpak apps.
  • Architecting the future with abstractions and metadata
    The modern data center is built on abstractions, with Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift leading the way.
