Could someone kindly sed me their grub.conf file?
I made a booboo and installed a redhat test kernel rpm and when
uninstalling it I got this msg:
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
I got the same error when yumming the original kernel back in.
PS: Where can I find a fedora 2.6 test kernel?
Sorry if this is off-topic... (If it is, please tell me what list I need
to direct this to).
I know a wee bit about marketing, and I don't know if anyone has brought
it to the attention of those in the know at RH's branding department
about the fact the RH logo is still present in the fedora test2 0.94
I would suggest replacing it with the "favicon" that is present on the
The convention would be that under the Enterprise edition, the RH logo
would be present(on the menu bar and other places), and on Fedora Core,
a Fedora logo would be present. I think the [F] favicon would suffice
in this area unless there is work being done on an official fedora
The idea, from what I have gathered, is to split out the two identities:
a.) Fedora -- community distro
b.) Redhat -- Enterprise server
Sorry if I've missed something here.
Red Hat and Fedora Linux are pleased to announce an alignment of their
mutually complementary core proficiencies leveraging them synergistically
in the creation of the Fedora Project, a paradigm shift for Linux
technology development and rolling early deployment models.
We are <...> *thud*
One two ... one two ... testing, is this thing on?
Hello, this is, um, the Engineers speaking. We are still really excited
about the project, but this time we have more than just dates. We hope
fedora.redhat.com will answer lots of your questions, and are sure it
will pose a few new ones.
Red Hat has a lot of experience in building solid dependable core
distributions while the Fedora Linux Project has lots of experience in
building effective infrastructure and policy to create many high quality
add on packages. Both groups decided to merge the two projects and build
outward using our shared experience, and to use the name "Fedora Project".
We don't pretend the merge will be smooth or immediate, but we firmly
believe that working with the Fedora Linux Project will get external
projects and add-ons up and running better and faster than we could on
our own and we are proud to be working with them.
The Fedora Project is something special. It enables Red Hat and the
community to work together to provide the community with rapid rolling
releases and to get new technology into the hands of developers.
With the solid establishment of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat
now has a platform for predictable change and high quality support
for customers, and for our ISV and IHV partners. Fedora is about
the community, about cool new technologies, and extending existing
Red Hat tools in a collaborative community. Our new up2date, for
example, supports YUM and apt-get repositories.
Fellow Fedorans, a new dawn is upon us, let us begin.
The http://rhl.redhat.com/ web site has been renamed
http://fedora.redhat.com/ and the mailing lists have all been renamed:
rhl-list(a)redhat.com -> fedora-list(a)redhat.com
rhl-beta-list(a)redhat.com -> fedora-test-list(a)redhat.com
rhl-devel-list(a)redhat.com -> fedora-devel-list(a)redhat.com
rhl-docs-list(a)redhat.com -> fedora-docs-list(a)redhat.com
Your subscriptions have been preserved, moved over to the new names
for the lists.

I don't think it's RHEL's license in question, but what about RHN's?
Isn't it RHN's license that states if you have one hooked up, you must
have all, or is it RHEL's?

In general, I agree with you. I can also assure you, there are good
reasons for (sometimes) doing it, but I digress...
If you read the original post, Axel's concern to upgradability from the
previous fedora release naming standard. A concern of mine is that I
maintain packages for all redhat releases going back to rh73, and I do it
all from a single src.rpm, and dynamically generate a Release tag based
upon the contents of /etc/redhat-release. Like Axel, I also would like to
maintain upgradability from previous releases. I argue that having to
increment Epoch solely for the purpose overcoming the Release drop (9 ->
0.9 ) to maintain upgrade paths is yucky.
I'd like to submit a patch to Mark Burgess so that cfengine can
correctly parse Fedora's /etc/redhat-release file. I'm wondering if
there's an official roadmap for version numbers. Currently, it's 0.94,
so I assume that the first release will be 1.00. Or will it be 1.0? Or
1.0.0? And how will the numbers progress?
seq 1 seq 2 seq 3
------- ------ -----
1.00 1.0 1.0.0
1.10 1.1 1.1.0
1.15 1.1p5 1.1.5
2.00 2.0 2.0.0
Or will there be a sequence altogether?

I know it was already clarifyed the situation on redhat list and IRC of these arch from
RedHat point of view but in new conjucture "Fedora" may i ask again
if there are some movements or not to build for these arch too (like debian)

I think the reason for ExclusiveArch is that the software hasnt been
tested on any other arch. Since Red Hat gives SLAs for those errata..
making sure that people dont complain about broken RPMS (even if they
broke it themselves.. ) cuts support costs. Of course I might be smoking
up a fantasy here.

I strongly believe that Fedora needs lists for announcement and
discussion of security issues. This is to prevent the potential
nightmare of the Core gets patched as usual by Red Hat, but packages by
outside maintainers are stale for much longer because some maintainer
isn't on every security mailing list. I think the announcement list
should be low noise and controlled by someone at Red Hat, or a trusted
member of the community. Just make announcements of security problems in
a similar way to Red Hat's errata notes for security issues. Then there
can be a second list to discuss them to get the fixes working and tested
This idea came to be because of the issue with running things from
rawhide has always been a security risk. You never know when the
maintainer will make a new rawhide package with the necessary security
fix for the latest exploits. This especially becomes an issue for things
like Fedora Alternatives, Fedora Extras, and Fedora Legacy. Along with
maintainers outside of Red Hat doing Fedora Core packages.
I am a strong advocate of full disclosure. I think both lists should
be open to the public for subscription. This is meant to be a community
project and I think the whole community should be able to stay informed.
I have heard others mention they are generally for full disclosure, but
not in all cases. I don't see how you can exactly draw a line. The idea
behind full disclosure is to motivate whoever is responsible to get it
done ASAP. I also think in general full disclosure is less of an issue
in most cases, because most exploits effect all distributions or
operating systems that use a certain piece of software, not just a
certain distribution. We will be more reacting to outside information
than reacting to problems we discover ourselves. I think that informing
all the the community about how we are reacting to outside information
on the lists outweighs the risk posed by disclosing information we
Another idea I just had while writing this is for a security-audit
team be created from members of the community to volunteer to review
code for exploits. Also verify that patches for exploits were while not
creating new exploits.
