First blog

Ahem.... 1...2..3...
My first contact with the world of blog aka livejournal. I am currently involved in Fedora Project.
Current objectives are translating Fedora Project website in French. Fortunately, there is another
french translator so the task will be much easier.

I am currently waiting for gdesklets packages to be reviewed further now that I got sponsorshed by Warren Togami, Fedora Project founder and Red Hat employee. It tooks me 21 compiles to make sure gdesklets follows Fedora Extras norm. From fedoraforum.org, I learned the existance of adesklets. Hopefully someone will choose to port this package for Fedora Extras.

Hello :) Welcome to the "blogosphere" as we say in French ! I'm very happy to help you improving the French translation of the fedoraproject. You can have a look at some of our French articles, we are rewriting them completely.
Thank you for helping translating fedoraproject. Hopefully there will be more people coming to translate the whole website and the docs for future Fedora Core Release.

I recently joined your website in order to keep track many computer words in French. I will look forward to help you on fedora-france.org

1000 downloads of Scribus unstable in COPR Fedora 28

What a surprise to see 1000 download of Fedora 28 repository for Scribus Unstable! Thanks a million.

Running Sapphire Radeon RX 560 on Fedora 27 beta (follow up)

Following the previous blog and some investigation, it turned out the kernel package from Mystro256 COPR repository based on agd5f kernel branch (one of AMD developers) resolves the blank screen issue. That could trigger a problem for users having a new AMD graphic hardware so perhaps a warning should be written on the release. Perhaps having one of contributors be part of kernel team bringing these improvement until those patches arrive to the mainline kernel for a better user experience.

Past the issue, the desktop experience with Radeon RX 560 was tremendously improved compared to the retired GTX 460 v2. Gnome on Wayland on Fedora runs smooth showing how far the open source amdgpu driver went through compared to previous years. That was also the opportunity to run a vulkan based smoke test demo on RADV, which is a counterpart of glxgears.

Overall the card is excellent once missing software are installed.

Vulkan now fully functional on ASUS X550ZE

Running Fedora 28 Design Suite post beta shows a nice surprise: Vulkan with RADV is fully functional on both South Island (Hainan) and Sea Island (Kaveri) cards on ASUS X550ZE laptop. amdgpu driver is needed to enable the feat in combination of boot parameter (cik.amdgpu_support=1 cik.radeon_support=0 si.amdgpu_support=1 si.radeon_support=0)

Some minor issues need be to addressed like occasional glitches. Otherwise the performance is stable enough for dail use.
