Fedora 17 Alpha…

I’ve just tried the alpha of Fedora 17 to see if the GNOME 3 software rendering works and it did. You may recall, since updating my graphics card I’ve been forced to use the fallback mode on Fedora 16. I’m quite keen to move back to proper GNOME 3, which looks like it will be possible when […]

UltraEdit 2.3 For Linux…

UltraEdit 2.3 has just been released for Linux. It now has a Fedora 16 build, which is nice. Cheers Tim…

Fedora 16 may use Btrfs by default…

Looks like Fedora 16 might use Btrfs as the default filesystem. Fedora 16 To Use Btrfs Filesystem By Default Features/F16BtrfsDefaultFs I hope the “Oracle doesn’t understand Open Source” brigade remember where this project started. Cheers Tim…

Fedora 15: First big problem…

Yesterday I hit a pretty major problem with Fedora 15. I did a reboot and the login screen came up fine, but when I tried to log in I got a message saying, failed to load session ‘gnome’ No options or alternatives. Just back to the login screen. ?? I started the machine up in […]

Fedora 15: First Impressions…

It’s been nearly six months since I made the switch from CentOS to Fedora as my main desktop OS. The Fedora 15 final release dropped a couple of days ago and I slapped it on my main desktop PC straight away. As usual, the first impression is all about the visuals. GNOME 3 looks great. I’m […]

Oracle 11gR2 on Fedora 12…

I had a play around yesterday and installed Oracle 11gR2 on Fedora 12: Fedora 12 (F12) Installation Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Installation On Fedora 12 (F12) I think this might be the last time I install Oracle on Fedora. Why? For two reasons: When I first started doing installs on Red Hat 7 […]

Fedora 11 and Oracle 11g…

It’s that time again where I check to see if Oracle installs on the latest version of Fedora. The result once again is yes, it does. The main website has the links to the articles. I would add links here only the browser on this internet cafe machine doesn’t support cut & pates. When I […]

Fedora 10 and Oracle 11gR1…

I like to meddle with Fedora from time to time, just so I can see what’s coming round the corner in RHEL. I read recently that Fedora 11 will be the base for RHEL6, which means we are about 6 months away from seeing what the future of RHEL is going to be… Much as […]

Fedora 10 is here…

Fedora 10 has just been released. Cheers Tim…

Fedora 9 and Oracle 11g…

I wrote a couple of articles against a beta version of Fedora 9 before I went on holiday. I did a run through against the final release of Fedora 9 today and they seem fine, so here they are: Fedora 9 (F9) Installation Oracle Database 11g On Fedora 9 (F9) The installation process doesn’t give […]
