  1. Fedora Community Blog: F36 elections voting now open

    Voting in the Fedora Linux 36 elections is now open. Go to the Elections app to cast your vote. Voting closes at 23:59 UTC on Thursday 16 June. Don’t forget to claim your “I Voted” badge when you cast your ballot. Links to candidate interviews are below.

  2. Fedora Community Blog: Mindshare election: interview with Madeline Peck

    I’ve worked on Fedora wallpapers as a designer since Fedora 33 to varying degrees, with Fedora 36 and 37 wallpapers discussions led between me and Mo Duffy. I’ve been taking courses in html to try and increase my skills to contribute towards some of the Fedora websites.

  3. Fedora Community Blog: Mindshare election: interview with David Duncan

    I work on the Fedora Cloud-Sig and have a strong interest and investment in the downstream viability of the work. I enjoy learning from the Fedora community and building support for the community.

    I am very focused on the messaging that relates to how we can drive additional adoption and support for the Fedora community overall.

  4. Fedora Community Blog: Mindshare election: interview with Sumantro Mukherjee

    I am a part of Fedora QA team where I focus on onboarding new members and running test days (Kernel Test Week starts 5th June; participate and earn badges – Just saying). I have helped out by running events, writing docs, blogs/articles, mentorship programs and revamping the Ambassador Program. In the recent past, I am working towards building a strong digital ambassadorship program.

  5. Fedora Community Blog: Council election: interview with Sumantro Mukherjee

    I hail from APAC (India) and would like to focus on bringing in more non-US perspectives, which includes bringing in more contributors from diverse backgrounds. Efficient utilization of our brand new design assets which are now in multiple languages (Hindi, for example) to onboard variety of users (general and power-users) to the Fedora community as contributor either to functional sides (QA, packaging..etc) and/or outreach.

  6. Fedora Community Blog: Council election: interview with Eduard Lucena

    There are several things that we can measure, like number of users, number of contributors, number of reviews per release. But the most important thing is to check how people feel about the project, some stuff that can’t be measure with numbers, but are really important, like how ambassadors feel about the revamp, how members and former members of mindshare perceive the work that have been done.

  7. Fedora Community Blog: FESCo election: interview with Neal Gompa

    As a long-time member of the Fedora community as a user and a contributor, I have benefited from the excellent work of many FESCo members before me to ensure Fedora continues to evolve as an amazing platform for innovation. For the past year, I have had the wonderful privilege of serving as a member of FESCo for the first time, and I enjoyed my time serving to steer Fedora into the future, and I wish to continue to contribute my expertise to help analyze and make good decisions on evolving the Fedora platform.

  8. Fedora Community Blog: FESCo election: interview with Stephen Gallagher

    I’ve been a member of FESCo for many years now, and it’s been a great experience. It gives me the opportunity to see a much wider view of the project than just the pieces I would otherwise contribute to.

    As for steering the direction of Fedora, I think I would mostly just continue to do as I have been doing: pushing for Fedora to continue to be both the most advanced and one of the most stable open-source distributions in the world.

  9. Fedora Community Blog: FESCo election: interview with Benjamin Beasley

    As a Fedora Linux, CentOS, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux user for well over a decade, and as a contributor to the community for the last couple of years, I find that wise and steady technical leadership has been one of the Fedora project’s great strengths. I would like to help continue that tradition.

    I was asked to run for FESCo by a community member I respect, and I’m happy to be of service. I would listen more than I speak; respect different people’s perspectives and styles of communication; and remember that idealism and pragmatism can exist in complementary rather than adversarial opposition.

  10. Fedora Community Blog: FESCo election: interview with Tom Stellard

    I have a background in compilers and toolchains, and I would like to use some of the knowledge I’ve gained over the years of building and troubleshooting applications to help make Fedora better. Specifically, I’m interested in helping packagers avoid common mistakes through standardized macros and packaging practices and also by increasing the reliance on CI.

  11. Fedora Community Blog: FESCo election: interview with Major Hayden

    Fedora remains a core part of my Linux deployments on desktops, servers, and cloud
    instances since I first discovered it back in the Fedora Core 2 days. It strikes a
    balance between fast updates, simple management, and mature development processes.

    My service on the Fedora Board from 2012 to 2014 gave me valuable insight into how
    Fedora works at a community level and the best ways to make changes. Changes affect
    everyone differently, and thoughtful consideration and communication around those
    changes makes all the difference.

  • 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.
