Running OLPC emulator

Running the OLPC interface emulator via QEMU. The system booted under 10 seconds with most of services disabled. The interface is very simple without some tooltips due to its works in progress nature.

It will be a matter of time where future version of Fedora will hugely benefit from OLPC in term of memory and light weight.

So, where can we get this image ?
The image can be grabbed by having QEMU and OLPC image files that can be found on http://olpc.download.redhat.com/olpc/streams/development/

Grab the latest build and run it via QEMU. To get screenshot, highlight QEMU windows and press both ALT+PRTSCR.

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.

Running Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 560 4GB on Fedora 27 Beta

I bought a Sapphire PulseRadeon RX 560 4GB to replace the broken Nvidia GTX 460 v2 after a long years of service. It is then my first ever dedicated AMD based video-card for a desktop.

The boot sequence on Fedora 27 hit a problem: a plain blank screen suggesting the card is not yet supported. Looking at Phoronix website revealed one of possible requirement missed: LLVM 5.0 which is currently not available to Fedora repository save a failed built. I filed a bug report to address the issue. Hopefully that will land on time for the official release of Fedora 27.

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.
