As of 30th July 2013, Fedora 17 has reached its end of life for updates and support. No further updates, including security updates, will be available for Fedora 17. A previous reminder was sent on July 3rd . Fedora 18 will continue to receive updates until approximately one month after the release of Fedora 20.
Kevin Fenzi announced a couple of days ago that the upcoming and highly anticipated Fedora 18 Beta release is now in Freeze, meaning that we will actually be able to download and test this important milestone of the Spherical Cow.
In a post on the project's security announce mailing list, Ubuntu Release Manager Kate Stewart has reminded users that the desktop version of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, code named Hardy Heron, will reach its end of life in May.
A while ago, Fedora developers started accepting name suggestions for the next release, Fedora 14. And this list of all the suggested names have been cut down to six selected ones. So, now Fedora 14 could be named after a Mountain, Brewery, Scientist, Building etc.
Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader, has announced some personnel changes within the Fedora project that show, as Smith says, "every person in the Fedora community is a potential leader." According to Smith, Fedora's "policies of rotating leadership help ensure that everyone who is so inclined has a chance to lead and serve."
Hi my name is Edgardo, and I new in the Fedora World and Forum.
I installed Fedora 12 Constantine, and I can't install the propietarie drivers download from nvidia.
I try to install the nvidia propietarie drive 'cause the "nouveau" nVidia driver doesn't work very well.
I see the screen displased,
I have not upgraded for a long while, and how have re-enabled the appropriate repositories to allow for upgrade. I no longer seem to be able to upgrade due to a gpg key trouble. Any advice would be much appreciated
