Red Hat’s RHEL 10 will Phase Out Xorg in Favor of Wayland

RHEL 10’s plan reveals Wayland’s dominance in future Linux releases, focusing on enhanced display features. Here’s more on that!

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 10 Dropping The X.Org Server Except For XWayland
"This decision will allow us to focus our efforts starting from RHEL 10 solely on a modern stack and ecosystem. This means we will be able to tackle problems such as HDR, increased security, setups with mixed low and high density displays or very high density displays, better GPU/Display hot-plugging, better gestures and scrolling, and so on." #RHEL #Wayland

On top of that, I reboot and add my two ~18TB disks for the #RAID1 storage set I'm creating, mdadm them, luksFormat them, pvcreate on that, and then can't add them to the existing volume group because "Devices have inconsistent logical block sizes (512 and 4096)."
Who on earth decided 512 was still a relevant block size when initializing a physical volume in the terabyte storage era? Stop using less than 4k. Please!
Now I get to redo my install again.

I install a lot of systems with #RHEL whether official or the old #CentOS or now Rocky. For most systems, I install without #encryption enabled and then add it to the logical volumes that need it post-install.
Today I chose to encrypt the system from the disk tool in Anaconda and was very annoyed by getting a bunch of UUID-named #LUKS objects, one for each LV instead of having the option to just encrypt the whole physical volume.

Updating my private #RHEL Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server from 9.2 to 9.3 with a simple dnf update. Oh, and thanks to the Red Hat individual developer subscription that's all for free:

The Red Hat Developer Subscription for Individuals is a single subscription, which allows the user to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux on a maximum of 16 systems, physical or virtual, regardless of system facts and size. Those 16 nodes may be used by the individual developer for demos, prototyping, QA, small production uses, and cloud access.

@Linux_Is_Best I think @opensuse really needs to find it's firm nieche and commit to it.

Yet another #RHEL clone won't cut it and @ubuntu does work quite fine if not provides a better offering than #SLES / #SLED for most SMEs and professional users...

#Alma #Rocky #8Stream #9Stream #RHEL #RedHat #IBM

@jwildeboer @SUSE @ubuntu @opensuse @SolarisDiaspora I think "Just clone #RHEL!" is kinda bad and unsustainable as a business.
Killing #CentOS and barring #OracleLinux was more of "glock-leg" / "shooting themselves in the foot" of #RedHat and IMHO it should get RHEL to decline in adoption similar to #grsecurity when they #paywalled access to their #SourceCode.

I think it's a bad move even tho no #GPL version demands said sourcecode to be publicly accessible to everyone.

@jwildeboer Personally, I think it's kinda bad that #RedHat was kinda becoming the de-facto monopolist.

Tho it's not as if @SUSE and @ubuntu could've made better offerings before, and I still think that unless one has a harsh #Vendor #LockIn #Ubuntu and @opensuse are the better options.

I just wished #SUSE and espechally #Canonical were more commited of building good distros than weird shite like this...

Not that I excuse RedHat from doing an #Oracle #OpenSolaris with #RHEL! @SolarisDiaspora

A Beginner's Guide To Dual Booting #Windows :windows: And #RHEL :redhatalt:

4 months ago

One thing about the #RHEL debate around #backports and #CentOS that isn’t being talked about a lot in the #Linux community is that the value of a super-long lived distro is shrinking in value, not growing.

When I started the OS and the physical server were extremely linked. OS upgrades were massive projects that took months, so the value of a long-lived distro made sense. Now though, it just doesn’t seem to make much sense for most people.

Obviously there are exceptions but I would bet one of the reasons #Redhat and #IBM did this is their data is showing a trend away from the type of product RHEL is. If you migrate to containers there is zero reason to ever use something so static as the base OS.

Even if you don’t, VM virtualization software has gotten much better at evacuating VMs and allowing you to upgrade hitlessly. So even for the datacenter model it stops making sense.

My new article, a bit more generic than the previous one

"I know people who imagine distribution development as the process of piling up the code in the git repository for 6 months and then building it all in one go at the end of those 6 months, so that it can finally be shipped. This is very far from reality. And it is impossible to explain things like CentOS Stream without addressing this confusion."

#ELdevelopment #RHEL #CentOS

Slide which says: 
Linux distribution is continuous

* Incremental atomic updates
* Bootstrap the buildroot once, continue building forever
* Circular build dependency on itself

Bonus text: I wanted to create an article following the content of the talk I gave at the Open Infra summit. As I started to write it, I realized that I can spend so much time on slide #3, that getting to the rest of the content within a single article is impossible.

There are 12 more slides there, so more articles are coming.

I had missed this line from RedHat's post about limiting access to the #RHEL sources:

> Simply rebuilding code, without adding value or changing it in any way, represents a real threat to open source companies everywhere

Yeah, that's exactly what corporations have been doing with hundreds of #FOSS projects for decades. Extracting money from code they contributed nothing to. But I guess when they do it against independent developers that doesn't count, does it?

@mairin @vwbusguy @cloudguy None of these things are being done to make me feel better or worse about #RedHat, #RHEL and #Fedora, but those feelings are there.

It would really help Red Hat if the company were to make a concerted, continual effort to highlight the various work it's doing/funding upstream.

Maybe the company feels like the work speaks for itself, but that is not the case. RH needs a lot of good PR (and should learn to get ahead of itself on PR regarding these policy shifts).

I listened to Bradley Kuhn of the Software Freedom Conservancy talk about the #RedHat #RHEL source code situation, and it only confirms for me that what RH is doing in trying to lock up the code is wrong. I love the #Fedora Project and community, but does participating in Fedora in effect condone what RH is doing?

Status update on the whole RHEL iperf3 saga...

The patch by @jonathanspw has been merged into @centos Stream 8! The c9s patch state is a bit different as the maintainer would rather backport than rebase.

This comes after Red Hat has now rated CVE-2023-38403 a Important, the second highest rating.
