Saving the "Best" for Last - Fedora 12 (Constantine)

,----[ Quote ]
| So, of the four "major" distributions over 
| the past month (Ubuntu 9.10, Mandriva 2010, 
| openSuSE 11.2 and Fedora 12), the only one 
| that didn't crash, hang or otherwise 
| misbehave on at least one of my 
| laptop/netbook/nettop systems was Fedora.
| Of course, there is plenty more fun to come 
| yet. New releases of Linux Mint and 
| SimplyMEPIS are already on the horizon, and 
| I don't think it will be long before there 
| is another PCLinuxOS release, too. The fun 
| never stops in the Linux world!


Cooperative Bug Isolation for Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) 
| is now available for Fedora 12.  CBI 
| (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/) is an ongoing 
| research effort to find and fix bugs in the 
| real world.  We distribute specially 
| modified versions of popular open source 
| software packages.

Major improvements with Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| This is just a taste of what Fedora 12 is 
| brining to the Linux table. There is a 
| veritable plethora of new features 
| available with Fedora 12. For a complete 
| list, take a look at this Wiki page for an 
| all encompassing  look at the feature list.


How to create a Fedora 12 Constantine Live USB boot disk?

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that Fedora 12 Constantine is 
| available, we will tell you how to create a 
| Live USB boot disk so that you can install 
| Fedora 12 on your computer without wasting 
| a CD (read: burning the iso on to the CD). 
| You can use this USB boot disk both as a 
| Live Fedora 12 system and also to install 
| Fedora 12 on your computer.


What's new in Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| The twelfth version of Fedora is equipped 
| with a current and comprehensive selection 
| of software packages that offer a whole 
| range of technological advancements. 
| Several of the new features, which include 
| extended hardware support for kernel-based 
| mode setting (KMS), 3D support for recent 
| Radeon graphics cards, and the emerging KSM 
| (Kernel Samepage Merging), are also likely 
| to turn up in other Linux distributions in 
| the near future.


Fedora : PackageKit change

| Not a lot of people seem aware of this. 
| This is from the announce list.



Fedora 12 rolls out impressive features

,----[ Quote ]
| Although last in this line of releases,
| Fedora is perhaps the most interesting of
| the releases. While it is the community
| version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora
| is not nearly as conservative and prides
| itself on its just-out-of-beta features.
| This time around Fedora introduces features
| such as Bluetooth audio support, multi-
| touch input for tablet PCs, better package
| management and broader network support.
| On the desktop Fedora includes Empathy, a
| new generation of instant messenger that
| supports chat, video and audio on most
| popular IM platforms including AIM, Yahoo,
| Google Talk, Jabber, Live (MSN) and
| MySpace. Using Empathy users can share
| their desktop with friends and use a webcam
| to create audio and video chats.

Fedora 12 - it's a horse, not a camel

,----[ Quote ]
| On the desktop, Fedora 12 offers the latest
| versions of GNOME and KDE, complete with
| all the usual updates to the standard GNOME
| and KDE applications. On the GNOME side
| that means the new Empathy IM client and
| the slightly revamped, somewhat more
| polished theme we mentioned in our review
| of the Fedora 12 beta release.


Fedora, Still Pushing The Envelope

,----[ Quote ]
| This new release certainly feels very solid
| and is definitely worth the upgrade, today.
| Due to Fedoraâs stance on free software,
| users might not get the same âout of the
| boxâ experience that other distributions
| might offer. Even so, is that a good thing
| or a bad thing? Either way, using only free
| software certainly helps to make Fedora
| more stable and itâs great for users who
| donât need proprietary software.
| That aside, Fedora 12 âConstantineâ
| continues the tradition of pushing the
| envelope of free software and could just
| be, the very best Linux distribution of
| 2009.

Fedora 12 Installation and Post Installation Guide

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 12, codenamed Constantine, is
| released! Just for the info, Fedora is an
| RPM based Linux Distribution, an Operating
| System in other words, developed by the
| community supported Fedora Project and
| sponsored by Red Hat. Fedora contains only
| free and Open Source software. Some of
| Fedora's 12 new features are Gnome 2.28,
| KDE 4.3, better web cam support!, and many
| others. Finally presto is enabled by
| default which means smaller updates to be
| downloaded and faster updates also!

| It's an orientation that Frields sees as
| central to the GNU/Linux distribution's
| rapid growth over the last five years, as
| well as the focus in the new Fedora 12
| release.


Fedora 12 Review and Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a great third party product for
| Fedora called Easy Life that you can
| download that installs and configures a
| ton of settings by default for you (ubuntu
| users may compare it to the deceased
| automatix).
| It does the following:
|     * Sets "sudo" command up for your
|     regular user;
|     * Configures RPMFusion repository for
|     extra and non-free software;
|     * Installs Flash Player plugin;
|     * Installs all kinds of multimedia
|     Codecs (h264,divx,xvid,mp3 etc);
|     * Installs additional fonts;
|     * Installs Skype;
|     * Installs Sun Java and Sun Java
|     Plugin for Firefox;
|     * Integrates Sun Java with system-
|     switch-java;
|     * Installs Google apps (Picasa,
|     Desktop);
|     * And many others...

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
