This is great but can we please also have Fedora (& Ubuntu, etc.) acknowledge they started shipping operating systems without a functional screen reader when they switched to Wayland and that that’s still the case?

This is not to name and shame. Unless we acknowledge this as an error on par with shipping without monitor support and unless the culture is altered to make accessibility a showstopper, it’ll happen again.

PSA: Fedora Linux 38 will reach end of life on May 21, next Tuesday.

Time to start upgrading. Fedora 39 will be supported for up to one month after the release of Fedora 41 (~6 months). Fedora 40 will be supported until a month after Fedora 42 (~12 months).

RPM Fusion is to as Nonguix is to Guix.

Since RPM Fusion is unofficial, I'm never sure if I'm using it optimally. Basically, I want to get from it what would have been included from it in Fedora's base Workstation install, if it were available for official use that way.

Updated from 39 to 40. Seems like mostly a non-event. But then, I am on GNOME not KDE. But on the plus side, the update went well!

In my opinion became too big and got too much support from , to the point of being arrogant and deciding to abuse spec like other implementations didn't exist at all.

Major distros, including , should in my opinion move to as default DE since its the most complete Freedesktop implementation and leave GNOME as a flavour people intentionally opt-in.

This would help bringing GNOME down to earth.

Silverblue and Fedora Atomic users - here's a guide on how to rebase to Fedora 40.

The graphical example used is for Silverblue, but if you follow the terminal instructions they will work on any Fedora Atomic Desktop. Just pay attention to use the name of your variant where applicable.

If anything goes bad, you can rollback to Fedora 39. Additionally you can pin your current image if you need to go back after a few updates.

Fedora IoT 40 got some cool under-the-hood changes.

First is that Fedora IoT now uses the unified core model, making them the last rpm-ostree variant to make the switch.

Second is that Fedora IoT will be the first rpm-ostree variant to be a bootable container image. You will literally be swapping to newer and newer container images when you update, which really emphasizes the idea of atomicity.

Plasma 6 is also available for our Kinoite users.

Red Hat released an urgent security alert for Fedora 41 and Rawhide users:


> Although Fedora 40 beta contained the 5.6 version of xz in an update, the build environment prevents the injection from correctly occurring, and has not been shown to be compromised. Fedora 40 has now reverted to the 5.4.x versions of xz.

Yesterday, Red Hat Information Risk and Security and Red Hat Product Security learned that the latest versions of the “xz” tools and libraries contain malicious code that appears to be intended to allow unauthorized access. Specifically, this code is present in versions 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 of the libraries - at this time, only Fedora 41 and Fedora Rawhide contain these libraries. This vulnerability was assigned CVE-2024-3094.

Although Fedora 40 beta contained the 5.6 version of xz in an update, the build environment prevents the injection from correctly occurring, and has not been shown to be compromised.  Fedora 40 has now reverted to the 5.4.x versions of xz.

🚨 ⚠️ Emergency PSA: A critical security exploit was discovered in the xz package recently, used for compression and decompression on nearly all Linux distributions.

Rawhide users ARE impacted and should immediately STOP using Rawhide until the package update is fully rolled back. (1/3)

Security Advisory:

Fedora Project »

The vulnerability may be present in Fedora 40 but it is not believed to be activated. Fedora 40 users are advised to use caution and update their systems soon when the rolled-back version is available, for more certainty.

Fedora 39 and 38 users are not impacted. (2/3)

The world of Fedora Atomic grows with **BlueBuild**, a spin-off of @UniversalBlue that is a newly independent project!

If you've been wanting to build or maintain your own custom image of Fedora Atomic Desktops, this may be another way to explore that interest. Instead of editing a containerfile, you work on a recipe that is then transformed into a containerfile to make the process of getting started easier.

At my parents in law's place I have my 10 year old X240 with Linux and I am using it there when we are there as a guest. Despite the age, still going good. I think there isn't any official Windows support for this ThinkPad anymore due to the age. but Linux just works!

Surely, some JavaScript heavy websites are not blazingly fast, but still usable. Shouldn't surf those sites anyway.

Someone please tell me screen reader support isn’t broken on the major Linux distributions like Fedora and Ubuntu that ship Wayland as default.

(I can’t get the modifier key for Orca to work under the latest Fedora Silverblue and, according to the linked issue, it’s because… it just doesn’t work under Wayland? That can’t be right, right? It would mean the major Linux distributions are inaccessible.)

Serious questions for this Friday… Are we now at a point of time where we can safely drop legacy and can even use only for servers.

Sure, technically everything works fine on operating systems like , , , etc. and all my monitoring, backup and admin infrastructure is only for years. But dealing with clients is something different. I think most clients already support , especially within my circle but it could still be annoying for people that are forced to use only.
