The annual event reached its historical 10 year mark this year. Southeast Linux Fest has been one of the most successful and long running events when it comes to Linux and only is topped by Scale and Linux Fest Northwest. Southeast Linux Fest (SELF) an event that is held at the Sheraton Airport Hotel Charlotte North Carolina. This event was centralized to accommodate attendance (easy access from Airport) from many of the surrounding states. We saw many individuals from the Tennessee, Georgia (Atlanta/Macon area), South Carolina, and Florida, as well as the local attendees from the Charlotte area and the state of North Carolina.

Event Goals from the desk of Southeast Linux Fest Coordinator

Discussing the primary goal of this event with the Coordinator (of Southeast Linux Fest), the target was to draw from the surrounding southern states. The secondary goal was opening the event to everyone  interested in learning about free and open source software. Later in this report we will discuss some of the feedback given to the Coordinator about Southeast Linux Fest.

Mumble ready for testing

Mumble is back

Mumble, a free and open-source VoIP program

Mumble, a free and open-source VoIP program

The popular Voice Over IP (VoIP) program, Mumble, is being repackaged again for Fedora 22 and 23. Fedora contributor fedpop unretired the package from the Fedora Package Database and is working on getting it added to the stable repositories.

Mumble is available for testing for Fedora 22 and 23 users. Once enough positive feedback is received, it will be added back to the stable repositories for all users. Testers are welcome, especially for Fedora 22!

How to test Mumble

To test Mumble, open a command line and run the following command.

$ sudo dnf install mumble --enablerepo=updates-testing

Confirm the installation and the application will appear on your system. Give it a run and make sure everything works as expected! If it all checks out, leave feedback for the build in Bodhi so the package can move closer to being packaged for the stable repositories (links are below).

For help enabling the testing repository, see the QA Testing wiki article.

First update for Fedora Developer Portal

This article originally appeared on contributor Josef Strzibny’s personal blog.

Developer Portal updates

First update of what? If you haven’t notice it yet, we announced a new developer portal for Fedora some time ago. Today I released a first update with some new contributions that landed on our GitHub after the announcement. So what’s new?

With the help of the Fedora community we were able to merge two new language sections: Haskell and Mono. That means we are already covering the basics for ~11 language runtimes and compilers!

Apart from that this is mainly bugfix release fixing many typos, but some improvements are merged as well. One of those changes is for example suggesting using libvirt’s Polkit rules instead of those shipped by vagrant-libvirt-doc sub-package when configuring password-less access to libvirt domains via Vagrant.

Some of the pending contributions did not make it for this release, but the next ones might happen more often. Big thank you goes to all our new contributors! And if you haven’t submitted anything yet, perhaps now’s the time. 🙂

Wayland is default in Fedora Workstation Rawhide

Fedora developer Ray Strode recently posted to the Fedora Developers list with the news that Wayland is now used by default when you log into GNOME with Fedora Workstation.  Previously to try out Wayland with Workstation, there was an additional session in the login screen that allowed you to choose either login with Xorg or Wayland. This change is part of the much anticipated proposed Fedora 24 feature, Wayland by Default. 

Ray also noted that, as the Change is still proposed, if Wayland by default doesn’t pan out, or the change doesn’t get approved rawhide will be switched back to having both sessions.

Ray also noted:

“But it’s good to get this in rawhide now, so we can get as much
exposure as possible to potential Wayland problems and get them fixed up before release.”

So if you use Rawhide, test away and file bugs!
