History

The Fedora Project was created in late 2003, when Red Hat Linux was discontinued.[4] Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) would continue to be Red Hat's only officially supported Linux distribution, while Fedora was to be a community project and distribution.[4] RHEL branches its releases from versions of Fedora.[5] Red Hat Linux was a popular Linux distribution assembled by Red Hat until the early 2000s, when it was discontinued. ... Red Hat Enterprise Linux (often abbreviated to RHEL) is a Linux distribution produced by Red Hat and targeted toward the commercial market, including mainframes. ...


The name of Fedora derives from Fedora Linux, a volunteer project that provided extra software for the Red Hat Linux distribution, and from the characteristic fedora used in Red Hat "Shadowman" logo. Fedora Linux was eventually absorbed into the Fedora Project.[6]. Fedora is a trademark of Red Hat, although this previously been disputed by the creators of the Fedora repository management software. The issue has now been resolved.[7] A fedora, which in this case has been pinched at the front and being worn pushed back on the head, with the front of the brim bent down over the eyes. ... Fedora (or Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture) (not to be confused with Fedora Core) is a modular architecture built on the principle that interoperability and extensibility is best achieved by the integration of data, interfaces, and mechanisms (i. ...


Since Red Hat's release of Fedora, other commercial Linux and Unix vendors, such as Novell and Sun, have also created community distributions closely related to a commercial distribution, with the community distribution acting as an open development lab leading to the commercial distribution.


Features

Distribution

Fedora is distributed via single installable Live CD/DVD sized images or a regular DVD image is also available for x86, x86_64 and PPC architectures. Before Fedora 7, Fedora Core was also distributed in a five CD set. Network installations over HTTP, FTP, and NFS are also supported. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a communications protocol used to transfer or convey information on the World Wide Web. ... This article is about the File Transfer Protocol standardised by the IETF. For other file transfer protocols, see File transfer protocol (disambiguation). ... Network File System (NFS) is a network file system protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1984, allowing a user on a client computer to access files over a network as easily as if the network devices were attached to its local disks. ...


Software package management is primarily handled by the yum utility. Graphical interfaces, such as pirut and pup are provided, as well as puplet, which provides visual notifications in the panel when updates are available. apt-rpm is an alternative to yum, and may be more familiar to people coming from a Debian/Ubuntu background, where apt-get is used to manage packages. Additionally, extra repositories can be added to the system, so that packages not available in Fedora (normally due to copyright or patent issues) can be installed. The Yellow dog Updater, Modified (YUM) is a free software/open source command line package management utility for RPM-compatible Linux operating systems. ... apt-rpm is a version of the Advanced Packaging Tool modified to work with the RPM Package Manager. ...

Ubuntu (official IPA pronunciation (oo-BOON-too[5])) is a predominantly desktop-oriented Linux distribution, based on Debian GNU/Linux but with a stronger focus on usability, regular releases, and ease of installation. ... Advanced Packaging Tool, or APT, is a package management system used by Debian and its derivatives. ...


Software repositories

Before Fedora 7, there were two main repositories - the Fedora Core and Fedora Extras. Fedora Core (also the name of the distribution) contained all the base packages that were required by the operating system, as well as other packages that were distributed along with the installation CD/DVDs. Fedora Extras, the secondary repository that was included from Fedora Core 3, was community-maintained and not distributed along with the installation CD/DVDs. Since Fedora 7, the Core and Extras repositories have been merged, hence the distribution dropping the Core from its name.[8]


Also prior to Fedora 7 being released, there was a third repository called Fedora Legacy. This repository was community-maintained and was mainly concerned with extending the life cycle of older Fedora Core distributions and selected Red Hat Linux releases that were no longer officially maintained. The repository was discontinued with the release of Fedora 7 due to the Fedora Project extending the life cycle for future Fedora releases.[9]


Security features

One of the many security features in Fedora is Security-Enhanced Linux, a Linux feature that implements a variety of security policies, including U.S. Department of Defense style mandatory access controls, through the use of Linux Security Modules (LSM) in the Linux kernel. Fedora is leading the way with SELinux-based distributions[10], having introduced it in Fedora Core 2. It was disabled by default, as it radically altered how the operating system worked, but was enabled by default in Fedora Core 3 and introduced a less strict, targeted policy.[11][12] Fedora also has methods in place to prevent buffer overflow exploits and root kits from functioning. Compile time buffer checks, Exec Shield and restrictions on how kernel memory in /dev/mem can be accessed help to prevent this.

Last two cores

The last two cores introduced specific artwork that defined them - Fedora Core 5 was Bubbles, and Fedora Core 6 was DNA. This trend has continued into Fedora 7.


Fedora Core 5 was released on March 20, 2006, with the codename Bordeaux, and introduced the Fedora Bubbles artwork.[18] It was the first Fedora release to include mono and tools built with it such as Beagle, F-Spot and Tomboy.[18] It also introduced new package management tools such as pup and pirut (see Yellow dog Updater, Modified). It also was the first Fedora release not to include the long deprecated (but kept for compatibility) LinuxThreads, replaced by the Native POSIX Thread Library.[19] It is no longer maintained by the Fedora Project. is the 79th day of the year (80th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Fedora Core 6

Fedora Core 6 was released on October 24, 2006, codenamed Zod.[20] This release introduced the Fedora DNA artwork, replacing the Fedora Bubbles artwork used in Fedora Core 5.[21] The codename is derived from the infamous villain, General Zod, from the Superman DC Comic Books.[22] This version introduced support for Compiz (a compositing window manager for the X Window System) and AIGLX (a program that enables GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop).[21] It also comes with OpenOffice.org 2.0, Firefox 1.5 as the default web browser, and Smolt, a tool that allows users to inform developers about the hardware they use. According to the Fedora Project, there are nearly three million users of Fedora Core 6.[23] As of 7 December 2007, this release will no longer be supported by the Fedora Project.[24] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Fedora 7

Fedora 7, codenamed Moonshine, was released on May 31, 2007.[25] The biggest difference between Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 is the merging of the Core and Extras repositories,[25] and the new build system put in place to manage those packages. This release uses entirely new build and compose tools that enable the user to build fully-customized Fedora distributions that can also include packages from any 3rd party provider.[25] Tools like pungi, livecd-creator, and revisor provide this functionality. The tools deliver builds as LiveCDs, LiveUSB keys, and installable DVDs. is the 151st day of the year (152nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era in the 21st century. ...


These tools have been used to create different "spins" of Fedora. The Fedora Project's official release included two Live CDs (one for GNOME and one for KDE) that provide a Desktop environment. There is also a spin called Fedora which comes on a DVD and provides a package set that is useful for a workstation or development-like environment. Finally, there is a spin named Everything which is simply an installation tree for use by yum, which contains all of the packages within the Fedora Project.


While Fast User Switching was possible with previous versions of Fedora, it is now enabled by default in Fedora 7 and newly created users will have the fast user switch applet added to the desktop panel.[26] Fast user switching is a feature on some modern multi-user operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X, OpenSUSE (linux), Ubuntu (linux) and Fedora (linux)[1]. It allows users to switch between user accounts on a single PC without quitting applications and logging out. ...
