    Yeah, it is re-implemented in 217. The 'startup timer' is actually on basic.target, and it's arguably reasonable to suggest that 'long-running units' shouldn't happen before basic.target is run. One...

    It's safe to try, but it probably won't work. ;) that is, right now it's set up to just not find the image it needs, and fail out more or less right away. This is a safety measure until we're happy...

    That text is a link to a Phoronix article where Michael tested an earlier 21 pre-release and really liked it. All he's saying is that 21 is a good release, in his opinion. It's entirely Phoronix's...

    That's not a pure kernel/software feature, it works together with the firmware (and ultimately the CPU and motherboard hardware). The firmware has to specify the cutoffs and provide the actual...

    The person who maintains the Fedora package is a systemd upstream developer, so apart from anything else, the distinction is fairly academic...
  6. Not exactly 'Fedora 21's systemd'

    I'd phrase this bit a little differently:

    "Fedora 21's systemd has a feature of timing out the system startup if it's not complete after 15 minutes of booting."

    It's not quite 'Fedora 21's...

    Well at a certain point it becomes a matter of semantics, I guess - any long-lived project eventually will have no, or very few, of the actual lines of code that made up the original. It's a 'the axe...

    I'm a Fedora QA engineer at RH. Believe me, I am *intimately* familiar with anaconda. At a rough guess I've probably run north of 10,000 Fedora installs, by now. Manually.

    anaconda was not...

    Nope. It's still anaconda. It's had some fairly major overhauls, but it's still anaconda (and there's still some nice fifteen year old Python in there).

    If this turns out to be awesome, hey, who...

    not a debug kernel

    Hi Michael! The F21 kernel has had debugging turned off since 3.16 went final, the Alpha kernel is not a debug kernel and no further F21 kernels will be debug kernels (except, well, kernel-debug...

    It's actually every release cycle ever, not just in recent memory, I don't think there's ever been a release without a slip.

    It kinda becomes a philosophical question: if everyone knows the...

    Fedora 21 is the release that incorporates all the change going on under the Fedora.next banner. Those changes are in the way the distro is organized and developed, though. Changes in the QA process...

    eh. it's really not that different on a 'traditional' distribution.

    fedpkg clone (package)
    cd package
    nano package.spec
    (change build config, add .1 to "Release:", add a changelog if you want...

    Er, that's not fucking stupid, you're doing something fairly stupid. You either work within your distribution packaging system or outside it. If you want to use self-compiled libraries, you'd better...

    There was no "badly broken pcre package". The person complaining didn't run "dnf update" and find that some error in the pcre package caused dnf to propose removal of kernel, rpm etc. The person...

    Can I borrow your crystal ball? I'd love to be able to know whether software will be ready by the time not even the *next* Fedora release comes out, but *the one after that*. Which doesn't have even...

    He's running Rawhide - all the packages are versioned .fc21. There's no update testing process for Rawhide. If a build succeeds it goes to the repo. edit: also, there really isn't any packaging bug...

    Scalability is a major concern for RHEL. In RHEL 7 the maximum size for an ext4 filesystem is 50TB; for xfs it's 500TB.

    ext4 is a fully-supported option for RHEL 7 (as xfs was for RHEL 6), the...

    Yeah, that's not quite how it happened. Earlier GNOME 3 releases had a *different* mode called 'fallback' which used gnome-panel; it wasn't really intended as an alternate interface for 'old-school'...

    Android doesn't have an all or nothing system, it has an all or nothing UI representation. The underlying code handles each permission separately. Otherwise App Ops couldn't exist.
