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


David Duncan posted[1] a picture of a bottle of "Extreme Linux Hot Sauce" at Texas Linuxfest 2010. Linux has never looked so hot!

Dan Williams shared[2] a few tips for using NetworkManager with server-class machines. Dan also announced[3] the release of NetworkManager 0.8 with a number of new features.

Colin Walters explained[4] "the process by which the Fedora Desktop CD image gets made."

Máirín Duffy attended[5] the FLOSS HCI Workshop at CHI 2010 Atlanta and wrote up a summary of the experience.

Rajeesh K Nambiar described[6] a bug which caused Linux-2.6.34-rc4 to be delayed, but in the end resulted in a number of kernel bugs being fixed a working suspend/resume function.

Karsten Wade asked[7] for companies interested in helping to sponsor the Fedora Summer Coding 2010 project. "Aside from all the potential benefits to the Fedora Project that directly or indirectly benefit you, your company stands to gain more than positive brand image. You help teach the next generation about how to be involved in FOSS, which teaches them the skills you want them to have when you hire them."

Valent Turkovic wants[8] DocbarX in Fedora, and shows why. "DockbarX brings much needed advancement in terms of dockbar features, ease of use, features and usabillity. This is especially noticable on netbooks where screen real estate is much better handled in DockbarX than in any other dock for Gnome desktop."

Nicu Buceli taught[9] how to make "NASA mission styled badges with Inkscape".

Fedora 13 Beta Roundup

A number of people posted with news of the Fedora 13 Beta release, including:

Clint Savage posted[1] the actual release announcement.

Paul W. Frields included news[2] of a test week for the Nouveau NVidia driver.

The Red Hat Press Office released[3] an official-looking announcement which included some of the highlights of the release.

Rahul Sundaram listed[4] some of the Desktop-oriented features.
