Red Hat

Fedora Linux 36 is the next major version of the popular GNU/Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat in active development and it should see the light of day later this Spring on April 26th, 2022, if everything goes according to plan.

Fedora Linux 36 ships with the recently released GNOME 42 desktop environment series for its flagship Workstation edition, if you wanted to get it for a test drive on your personal computer. It also includes the most recent versions of the KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXQt, LXDE, Cinnamon, MATE, SoaS, and i3 graphical environments of the supported Fedora Spins.

    The final F36 day and night beta wallpapers are here! Take a look below and let us know what your thoughts are!

    We last left off with the beta versions of the wallpaper that were created in Krita, which can be found on my blog with their design process explained.

    We received a lot of great feedback including suggestions for a strictly night version with the moon glowing instead of a sunset, adding butterflies to the day version, as well as shifting some of the clouds around so they didn’t stack and make the right side of the wallpaper too heavy. The previous version is below in Day, Sunset, and Night mode.

Fedora Linux 36 Beta now available for download with GNOME 42

  • Fedora Linux 36 Beta now available for download with GNOME 42

    Today is the day many Linux users have been eagerly awaiting -- Fedora 36 has officially reached Beta status. Yes, folks, you can download the pre-release operating system immediately! For many Linux users, Fedora is considered the most important distribution based on that open source kernel. Why? Because the distro focuses on truly free and open source software -- a pure Linux experience. Hell, the father of Linux, Linus Torvalds, famously uses Fedora.

    What makes Fedora 36 Beta so exciting? Well, this pre-release version of the upcoming operating system uses the brand-new GNOME 42 as its default desktop environment. If you instead choose the LXQt spin of Fedora, you will be delighted to know it now uses version 1.0 which was released late last year. Plus, users with an NVIDIA GPU are in for a treat when using the proprietary graphics driver -- GDM will use Wayland by default.

  • Red Hat Announces Fedora 36 Beta, Inviting Users to Test the Upcoming Release

    Fedora is a sister project to the company's Red Hat Enterprise Linux that functions as a testbed for later versions of RHEL. It's aimed at developers and Linux hobbyists, in contrast to RHEL's focus on the enterprise.

    Due to Fedora's focus on newer software, the project moves quickly. The last release, Fedora 35, was released in November 2021. Fedora aims for a roughly six-month release schedule. This means that users should expect the full release around April 2022 if all goes well.

    The open nature of Linux development and the fast release schedule of major components like the Linux kernel means that the Linux community tends to value access to newer software. As evidenced by the growth of rolling-release distros like Arch Linux (what is Arch Linux?).

    Curious users eager to try the beta can download the desktop version, dubbed Fedora Workstation, directly from the Fedora website.

    Fedora provides a tool for Windows and Mac users called Fedora Media Writer to create bootable media on a USB stick, but users can also download the ISO image themselves and create their own media. The Fedora 36 images for x86 and ARM are clearly marked with the "Beta!" icon.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
