About Omar CHERIF

Professionally I'm a Web Developer and GNU/Linux sysadmin for eCHERIF a software development company based in Tunisia (supporting mostly Fedora and CentOS in the usual heterogeneous environment). I have started using GNU/Linux as I got Fedora 6(Zod) and has been a long time user of Fedora GNU/Linux Distribution. Throughout the time I had the opportunity to try out many distributions such as CentOS, SuSE, Debian, Yellowdog and more recently Ubuntu but I am still a fan of RPM distribution mainly Fedora. I have also started bloging and advocating about Free and Open Source Software as well as Open Content. I have also been involved in Web development for more than 5 years. I am 27 years old (and counting...)

Free/Busy Time


    Usually in: ##linux
                I also occasionally visit #fedora, and I spend time on other non-Fedora channels (##php #python #perl #android), too. 

Involvement with Free Software And Fedora

Advocating and blogging on Open Source Software, on Linux and Collaborative works

Version My current running kernel Status
Fedora 10 (Cambridge) kernel vmlinuz- Checkmark.png
Fedora 11 (Leonidas) Preview kernel vmlinuz- Checkmark.png
Do not forget unplugging any external hard drives before installing. Otherwise you could wipe your HDD by mistake when installing Fedora (Using the entire Disk choice during Fedora installation process)
This is a note
The Fedora 11 version's "Swap" space is defined about 3 GB, versus the Fedora 9 and 10 versions' "Swap" space are defined about 2 GB.

Fedora Ambassador

Though i have been promoting fedora at work, my entourage, colleges and schools (I have presented/ demonstrated fedora in some Free software events). I have joined Fedora Ambassador later and hope this will make my involvement and contribution more strong
