Btrfs System Rollbacks In Fedora 13


One of the benefits of Btrfs besides offering competitive performance against other Linux file-systems and SSD optimizations is its support for sub-volumes and writable snapshots. While Btrfs is still in development and is not yet used as a default file-system by any Linux distribution, Red Hat has been looking to capitalize upon the capabilities of Btrfs by introducing support for system rollbacks into Fedora. The Btrfs-based system rollback support has been a feature for Fedora 13 so with the release of the Fedora 13 Beta earlier this week we decided to further investigate this feature.


Fedora 13 Beta Released

Fedora 13 Beta has just been released a few hours ago. Named “Goddard”, the final version of Fedora 13 will sport many new features such as KDE 4.4, latest builds of the XFCE environment and Sugar Learning Environment apart from the usual bug fixes and functionality additions.

If you are looking for the bigger catch, wait up for the final release in the middle of May this year. For those restless, Download ISO From Link below. And of course, if you don’t know your way around bugs and geeky mosquitoes, don’t download this. The Beta is presumably the last crucial milestone of Fedora 13, and as such, only critical bugs will be fixed now for the coming final release.

The Beta has a number of new features, such as automatic print driver installation with the help of PackageKit; new software such as ShotWell photo manager, Pino microblogging client; NetworkManager improvements over bluetooth and mobile broadband connectivity; support for the latest iPods and iPhones and 3D graphics support backed solely by open source drivers.

5 of the Best Free Linux Data Recovery Tools


Data recovery is the process of retrieving data from corrupted or damaged storage media when it cannot be accessed. The storage media in question will often be a hard disk, but it can also be removable media such as CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and storage tapes. There are many different reasons why a system administrator may need to use data recovery tools.

At boot up, mainstream Linux distributions perform routine scans to identify and fix any inconsistencies in the file system. A damaged file system might be caused by the computer not shutting down in an orderly fashion, which can occur say in the event of a power cut. However, such routine scans will not detect hardware failure which might exist for a long period without being noticeable to users. Accesses to bad sectors on the media can make the situation worse, and with further usage as well as the passage of time, the media can eventually become unreadable.

Ubuntu Lucid Makes Scanning Simple


Canonical is aiming to make the task of scanning documents super simple with version 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Canonical developer Robert Ancell is working on Simple Scan, a great little program that does exactly what it claims – it makes scanning documents simple! Simple Scan is now the default scanning software in Lucid.

Simple Scan makes scanning, emailing, printing and saving documents much less complicated. Sure, many of us geeks might want something like XSane that offers much more control over our scans, but for beginners, Simple Scan should take all the mystery out of scanning. Scanning documents and attaching them to an email in Evolution is now just a few-click process.

6 of the Best Free Linux Disk Cloning Software


One of the key responsibilities of a system administrator is to ensure the safety of an organisation’s computer data. This is a critical task for any organisation, given that the loss of important data could have profound implications on its future prosperity.

There are a number of different strategies that a system administrator will need to use to ensure that data is preserved. For example, the person will need to maintain the computer system and/or network, by applying operating system updates and patches, by performing regular backups, and ensuring that the system is kept secure at all times. Disk cloning is a highly popular method of performing comprehensive backups of the operating system, installed software, and an organisation’s data with the minimum of effort.
