Package Management in Enterprise Linux

Software

It was patch day for the test environment, the group of servers dedicated to testing locally developed code before it is pushed into QA, and then into production. Patches for RedHat Enterprise Linux are applied using "yum update" in our setup, keeping it simple. Things were going well, no conflicts, no problems with our applications after the patches were applied. Then, one of the server's yum processes died with an error--a very familiar error.

Juggling tasks is difficult, so instead of trying to keep track of every important thing either in your head or on a piece of paper, why not give computer-based organisers a try?

Game Engines: CRYENGINE 5.4 and Godot 3.0 Alpha

  • CRYENGINE 5.4 Preview released, includes Vulkan support
    The CRYENGINE 5.4 Preview has been released and it comes with something truly interesting: Vulkan support.
  • CRYENGINE 5.4 Preview released today, including over 620 improvements
    The CRYENGINE 5.4 Preview is a major update which couldn’t have been achieved without all of the feedback from the CRYENGINE community. There are several major advancements and integrations that we think will make things more accessible and let you achieve even more, more rapidly.
  • Dev snapshot: Godot 3.0 alpha1
    After almost one year of development, the master branch (future Godot 3.0) is mostly feature-complete and ready for broader testing by the Godot community. We are therefore releasing a first alpha snapshot for existing users to play with and report bugs.
  • Godot 3.0 Reaches Alpha
    As of now there is no time table for the stable Godot 3.0 release besides "when it's ready." Godot 3.0 doesn't have a Vulkan renderer but just has its revamped OpenGL ES 3.0 / OpenGL 3.3 support.

GNOME: Nautilus, Recipes, Evince, and GUADEC

  • Tags in Nautilus
    As I mentioned in my last blog post, I spent the last weeks working on tags. Though, just to be clear from the beginning, general tags will probably not make it into the next versions of Nautilus. At the time I found out that this feature should not be included, I already had some of the work done, so I’ll explain below what I accomplished even if it’ll not be part of the next releases.
  • Summer recipes
    While this is a development release, I think it may be time to declare this version (1.6) stable. Therefore, I encourage you to try it out and let me know if something doesn’t work.
  • New Evince format support: Adobe Illustrator and CBR files
    I mentioned that we switched from using external tools for decompression to using libarchive. That's not the whole truth, as we switched to using libarchive for CBZ, CB7 and the infamous CBT, but used a copy/paste version of unarr to support RAR files, as libarchive support lacks some needed features.
  • I’m going to GUADEC
    The GUADEC is approaching and I’m happy to say that I will be there, again! Apart some issues with my laptop[1], everything is packed and ready for the trip. I plan to be in Manchester from tomorrow evening and will stay in there until Thursday next week. Just by looking at the schedule and planned social events, I’m sure that it is going to be an awesome week.
