Fedora 18 and UEFI

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi, everyone,
I have a question about UEFI in fedora 18: I see in lwn.net article:

"Fedora's strategy is to enroll in Microsoft's developer program,
which allows the project to purchase an approved $99 key through
Verisign, a key which will be recognized by UEFI secure boot. The key
will be used to sign the shim bootloader, which is a "trivial UEFI
first-stage bootloader" whose only job is to boot GRUB2. Fedora will
also sign the GRUB2 bootloader and the kernel, although the latter two
binaries can be signed with the Fedora project's own keys.

see
http://lwn.net/Articles/503803
 That this means that from F18 on, fedora will cost 99$ for every installation?

rgs,
Kevin
