Comment On This Article

Rahul Sundaram has published part one of a series of articles for Red Hat Magazine titled Inside Fedora Core 6. In this part Rahul mentions the installer improvements with the ability to use Anaconda to fetch packages from a yum repository, enabling AIGLX and Compiz for desktop effects, and performance boosts throughout all of Fedora Core 6. These performance boosts can most notably be attributed to glibc with dynamic linking improvements as well as the speed boosts brought by GNOME 2.16. Part one of Inside Fedora Core 6 can be read at Red Hat. Look for Fedora Core 6 next Tuesday (October 17, 2006) when it will be officially announced.
