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


James Morris posted[1] a roundup from the SELinux Developers Summit (which immediately preceded LinuxCon and the Linux Plumbers Conference) in Portland, Oregon. Mmm, donuts. Daniel Walsh presented[2] on "how sandbox -X works" at the conference. Daniel also mentioned[3] that Fedora 12 will include a command-line interface to polgengui (which "is a template based policy framework, that ask the user a few questions, and then generate initial policy files to allow the policy writer to get started").

Richard W.M. Jones continued[4],[5] adding tools that can introspect virtual machines from the host system, this time a graphical df (virt-df), virt-uname, virt-update and virt-ping.

Rahul Sundaram talked[6][7] about the problems, dangers, and potential preventions for dependency breakage (you know, when you run "yum update" and it tells you that it can't continue because 1 out of the 146 packages that need to be updated doesn't have all of its dependencies satisfied).
