Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Lennart Poettering wrote[1] a mutex profiler called mutrace. "When naively profiling multi-threaded applications the time spent waiting for mutexes is not necessarily visible in the generated output. However lock contention can have a big impact on the runtime behaviour of applications...To improve the situation if have now written a mutex profiler called mutrace."

Way back in May, Daniel Walsh introduced[2] the SELinux sandbox. "As soon as I released it, I received email asking if it could be used to sandbox Acroread, and I had to say 'Sorry, it can't do that'."[3]. But now it can. It can even be used to sandbox Firefox[4].

Josh Boyer shared[5] an amusing anecdote about running wires with his two-year-old son. Who knew that patch cables could be so much fun?

Mel Chua asked[6] for "I use Fedora" stories from the community. "Write up your story about using Fedora, the stories of your friends and the people you’ve introduced Fedora to".

Michael DeHaan quickly built[7] a lab of 85 machines in Chicago for the Red Hat Summit, using cobbler (did I mention that version 2.0 was just released?[8]).

Similarly, Jeroen van Meeuwen mentioned[9] that is available, comprising "a collection of modules for Puppet", the "system for automating system administration tasks".

Máirín Duffy finished[10] a set of mockups for the Fedora Project's Spins page.
