RHEL 8 Beta


Red Hat released the Beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) on 15 November 2018.

Installing this new release we see that the codename for RHEL 8 is ootpa!

So, how to get started with the new Beta? Here are some useful resources:

most RHEL 8 systems will only need two repositories enabled.

To install or run Python on RHEL 8, use python3 – unless you have a different version in mind.

Do not use sudo pip.

Do not use platform-python for your applications. However, use platform-python if you are writing system/admin code for RHEL 8.

And if you have some code for Python 2, now is a great time to start modernizing it.
