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!
#RHEL 10 drops Xorg, keeps Xwayland

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
Version 2023.11.119 builds have just been released for Fedora 37, 38, 39 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 7, 8, 9.
All releases are based on Chromium 119.0.6045.123.

Yay, managed to bolt my edge devices into board. Now we can take the edge/AI demos on the road! Still need to go and buy shorter cat cables. This board is running RHEL Edge, micro shift, single node OpenShift, and Fedora-IoT on raspi with Microshift too. All hooked up to ACM in datacenter with Openshift AI.
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.
#RockyLinux #storage #rant #RHEL #Anaconda
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.

🎁 AlmaLinux OS 9.3 Is Here as a Free Red Hat Enterprise Linux Alternative
「 Codenamed “Shamrock Pampas Cat”, the AlmaLinux OS 9.3 release is here almost six months after AlmaLinux OS 9.2 and promises to improve flexibility and reliability, enhance security across hybrid environments, simplify automation and system management, as well as to offer enhanced security and compliance 」
Was ich mehr als bezweifle...
"@redhat revolt coming"
This repeating pattern (cf @Elastic @MongoDB @HashiCorp) exposes a critical flaw in for-profit #FOSS.
Per McGrath, "#OSS is now built from people that are paid full time"
"The code is still available to Red Hat customers, as well as developers using free accounts, though under conditions that forbid redistribution of the source code. As of September 2023, it is unclear if these conditions that forbid redistribution of the source code violate the GNU GPL, which forbids companies from preventing redistribution of GPL licensed code.["
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.3 is Released
#Linux #LinuxNews #RHEL
Ok, didn't find a 100% solution. Seems now if I do a echo phpinfo() | php in bash, I show the library loading and I get information about the library. I can echo oci_connect() | php in bash and get success connecting to the DB. BUT: phpinfo() in http served web page shows no oci8. It says it parsed /etc/php.d/90-oci8.ini at the top but shows no OCI8 information on the page! What did I do wrong??? #php #oracle #rhel

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:
A little while back I posted about doing both a talk and workshop at LinuxFest Northwest this year. As you may have heard, the conference had their original venue cancel on them and had to downsize. The new venue didn't have room for any workshops, but my regular talk is still happening. Check it out to hear about our journey to EPEL 9, with a sneak peek of EPEL 10.
@Vincent392 @n3m3s1s @Linux_Is_Best Well, I do myself do stick with @ubuntu as well since they are the only #Freemium #Enterprise #Linux Distro that doesn't want ne to cough up triple digits per year just for the privilegue of using their Software.
Some people would do that for #macOS since they do #creative #work with that but for them it's like with people paying for #RHEL or #SLES / #SLED and those paxing for #Adobe's Crapware: It's a #BusinessExpense!
Unfortunately for now it's unavailable on #FreeBSD, RHEL 9 and old distros.
I guess it's not a coincidence that I recently unsubscribed from the Red Hat security mailing list. I didn't need all that mail, and my interest in RHEL is low right now.
But today I learned that RH is ending the mailing list.
Now this info will be restricted to those who have an active Red Hat account.
Rocky Linux Is the Most Preferred Enterprise Linux Distribution
According to metrics tracked by the EPEL Special Interest Group, as of September 2023, Rocky is a leader in the Enterprise Linux segment.
Seems like using 802.1x with NetworkManager under #Fedora and #RHEL only works if #SELinux is disabled. In Enforcing mode it simply asks for the passphrase and can't use the key/certificate. No denials are logged.
Does anybody else also have this issue? Can't find hints in the documentation. #followerpower
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.9 and 9.3 Beta are generally available"
- the announcement RHEL consumers would not need to wait for if they adopted continuous integration with CentOS Stream 8 and 9 :)
@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.
Our #flocktofedora experience has felt very positive. So many productive conversations both from stage and in the "hallway track" as stakeholders of various enterprise Linux communities came together to talk face to face, build relationships, and work to establish a shared vision for the future. Sincere thanks to the Fedora community for holding space for this necessary work. #rockylinux #almalinux #centosstream #rhel

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."
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?
「 AlmaLinux's Vasquez emphasized later that "We're just going to build Enterprise Linux. Red Hat has done a great job of establishing a fantastic target for all of us, but they don't own the rights to enterprise Linux. We can make this happen, without forcing an uncomfortable conversation with Red Hat. We can get around this." 」
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? https://podcast.asknoahshow.com/345
Status update on the whole RHEL iperf3 saga...
This comes after Red Hat has now rated CVE-2023-38403 a Important, the second highest rating.
