The GNOME 3 edition features the latest release of the GNOME 3, which is GNOME 3.8.

Fedora 16 security features

Up
vote
Down

The security features in Fedora make it one of my favorite Linux distributions. And that is partly why it is in my list of the top 6 KDE distributions of 2011, even though it takes some tweaking to get it to the it just works state. I will take the security advantages of an operating system over any user-friendliness weaknesses, provided those user-friendliness weaknesses are not show stoppers.

Two of the four security features in Fedora 16 are enabled out of the box. The others are optional features that can be configured during installation. So, let us look at those two optional security features first. read more...

Linux provides the kdump, diskdump and netdump tools to collect core file when a systems panics, and although not quite as seamless as their Solaris counterpart, they work relatively well. This article will show how to use kexec along with kdump to get core files when a system panics and reboots. read more...

Tutorial: Android development environment on Fedora 14

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial describes how you can set up a development environment for building Android apps on a Fedora 14 desktop using Eclipse, the Android SDK, and PhoneGap. I will describe how to build Android apps from the command line with PhoneGap and from the GUI with Eclipse and PhoneGap and how to test them in an Android emulator and on a real Android device. PhoneGap allows you to develop your Android applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (e.g. with JavaScript libraries such as jQuery/jQTouch), and it will turn these web apps into native Android apps (in fact, PhoneGap supports multiple platforms such as Android, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian, so you can use the same sources to create apps for multiple platforms). read more...

Review: Fedora 13

Up
vote
Down

Fedora 13 is the latest update to the Redhat-sponsored, RPM-based Linux distribution. It has long held a reputation of being a testbed for features that will eventually make it into Redhat Enterprise Linux, and, therefore, less stable than other desktop-oriented distributions. And I think thatís one reason why Fedora has features that youíll not find on other desktop-focused distributions.

Itís not a distribution that works out of the box, but if you are willing to spend an hour or so tweaking it, you can get it to the point where it just works. With this short review, Iíll present some of this distroís best features, features that may entice potential users. Iíll also give a listing of those features that are not very well implemented, or are missing and would, therefore, create usability issues for users Ė especially new users. read more...
