First post to this mailing list. Must say I am looking forward to the stable
release of FC.
Well, a bit about myself:
25 graduate engineer, from Aberdeen, Scotland. Constantly trying to study for
my RHCE, but now everything has changed, don't know if I can afford an
Enterprise copy, maybe just learn from the books what I can't else where.
Setting up a linux support company in Aberdeen too, amonst over things.
Anyway, I am trying to get emacs going for the docs project, but can't get
past this bit:
"Find the parent file for the group of DocBook files. You will recognize this
file by the header <!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V4.1//EN".
An easy way to find this parent file is to use the command grep DocBook
*.xml. Once you find the parent file, open it in Emacs with the command emacs
<parentfile>.xml (where <parentfile>.xml is the parent file you found."
I don't know where the parent file is or where to grep. Am I being stupid?
Hope someone can put me straight.

This was brought up on fedora-test-list but never got moved.
An anaconda guide is listed on http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/docs/
already and I think it would be very worth while.
I guess it'd be a good idea to brainstorm what should go in it. For
those on anaconda-devel (I haven't been on it for a while), what are
current FAQ's etc. There is probably a fair overlap with advanced
The common things I've done or thought about in no particular order are:
1) Incorporating updates into installer
2) Adding new kernel modules to an image
3) Adding new groups to comps.xml (maybe a nice way of editing it could
be provided using pygtk and rhl.comps)
4) Adding new classes to the install (and making them fit in the gui)
5) Reskinning anaconda and the distro (what to replace)
6) Building a stripped down single CD install
7) Building a DVD
Thoughts, comments, etc welcome.
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.
