Fedora Switching From CVS To Git

Package source control for Fedora has relied upon CVS since the inception of this Red Hat Linux distribution, but it's soon going to switch over to using Git instead. At the FUDCon event this week in Toronto, Red Hat's Jesse Keating has laid out these plans to stop using CVS and switch over to Git for its benefits: distributed management, it's faster than CVS, better patch management, and many upstream projects using this revision control system.

Fedora 13 Is Codenamed Goddard

The next release of the Red Hat sponsored Fedora Linux distribution is going to be Fedora 13, which is due out in 2010 and already promises many new features like Btrfs file-system rollbacks and NFSv4. While there are already these features being worked on, it wasn't until tonight that we know what Fedora 13 is actually being codenamed. There was a codename proposal period followed by voting, and now the votes have been tallied up and the most popular name approved.

Fedora 13 May Support Btrfs System Rollbacks

Fedora 12 was just released this week, but features for Fedora 13 have been in planning long before this release made it out the door. In fact, it was last month that we began talking about features for Fedora 13. One of the features though that has just been proposed for Fedora 13 is rather interesting and that is system rollback support via Btrfs file-system snapshots.

Test Out The New Intel, NVIDIA, ATI Linux Drivers

As part of their usual roundabout with pushing the latest X.Org, kernel, and Mesa code into Fedora before each new release, for the next three days Red Hat is holding testing sessions focused on the open-source ATI/AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel graphics drivers, respectively. To make for an easy process even for those that may not be active Fedora users, there are Rawhide LiveCD images (in x86 and x86_64 flavors) that were spun last night by Red Hat's Adam Williamson. This code has all of the latest Fedora 12 packages, but sadly just shy of having the R600/700 3D support working.

Intel Poulsbo Driver For Fedora 11

The Intel Poulsbo Linux driver is a bloody mess, it's that simple. Unlike the main Intel Linux graphics stack, the one that supports the Poulsbo chip found on many Intel Atom-powered devices, is closed-source. While some could careless whether a driver is open or closed source, the Poulsbo driver is difficult to find and to get working on distributions outside of Ubuntu Netbook Remix. However, Intel has already decided to not support Ubuntu 9.10. There was an open-source Poulsbo DRM that was created, but it was rejected from the mainline kernel, on the basis of it being undocumented and just being used by a binary-only client.
