Bodhi 2.2.0 beta

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-09-14 20:57

Hello Planet Fedora! I hope you are holding on to your hats, because Bodhi 2.2.0 is on its way to a Rawhide near you. But wait, that's not all - we will be updating Bodhi in EPEL 7 to the new 2.2.0 release as well.

The web server changes include a fix for CVE-2016-1000008 (thanks to Patrick Uiterwijk for reporting), some new features, and some bug fixes. The client changes will be more drastic when 2.2.0 reaches Rawhide, as the client in Rawhide has been behind for a while on a 0.9 release. Once 2.2.0 is released upstream, the 2.2 client will make its way into Rawhide. The client is a rewrite from the 0.9 series, and is not backwards compatible. There is a man page to guide you.

Taking the plunge

Reddit - Wed, 2016-09-14 19:27

Hey everyone,

I am a long time tech enthusiast (work, school, and pleasure) and I am officialy starting my journey into Linux full time. I am very familiar with computers (degrees/certs/experiments) but I was wondering what you all think would be the best Linux OS to start on. I am not a fan of Ubuntu and Kali is too specific. My current objective is to dual-boot and use it to help pass Linux+. Any other tips for a new Linux user are welcome.

Obligatory monthly 'I have a kid who i want to run on linux' question...

Reddit - Wed, 2016-09-14 17:54

So, I've a 7 and a 5 and an old wreck of a PC (about 7 years old with a middle of the road GPU). Essentially, the old wreck isnt capable of adequately running Windows anymore, and I'm disinclined to have my children spied upon so easily.

Bearing in mind that I'm not a Linux wizard, but I can hold my own, can anybody recommend a decent distro that I can bung on the old wreck. Ideally something with a decent and manageable UI, but won't allow them to get into too much mischief!

On another note, I've never ran Linux on a machine with a GPU, are there magic steps I need to take to make it all sing?

Thanks luvvies
