Fedora Design Suite 19

English

Fedora 19 is officially released including all available spins. Design Suite, free of Live CD size constraint, can be used through either DVD or USB drive (2GB minimum). Based on latest stable Gnome Shell, the spin now includes several new tools by default like Gpick for colour selection, Hugin for panoramic pictures, pdfShuffler for add/remove pdf files and Bluefish for web design. Unfortunately, Cinepaint failed to start due to bugz #904256, other packages runs smoothly. You can download it via this channel.

Design package in Fedora has been updated to closely match the spin version with additional typefaces like Comfortaa, Adobe Source Sans Pro and Overpass. That package is suitable for those wanting to use a different desktop environment.

Using AMD RX Vega driver OpenCL on Fedora 29

The Raven Ridge APU is very capable processor to handle OpenCL inside some applications like Blender, Darktable and Gimp. Unfortunately, the current implementation from Mesa, clover, stuck to 1.3, is not supported. AMD released their driver 18.40 with OpenCL2.0+ targeting only Red Hat Enterprise Linux/Cent OS 6.10 and 7.5 in addition of Ubuntu LTS. The good new is the former rpm format can be used on Fedora.

The graphical part of Raven Ridge is Vega 8, basically a cut-down of Vega56 or Vega64 meaning choosing either driver for RX Vega.
The instruction is provided for extracting the rpm files but here is
 some requirements for OpenCL:
kernel-devel (provided by Fedora repository)amdgpu-dkmsdkmslibopencl-amdgpu-proopencl-amdgpu-pro-icd Once done, applications needing OpenCL will automatically detect the driver located on /opt/amdgpu/lib64. Blender will list as unknown AMD GPU and Darktable will enable it.



There is a ROCm version but it currently does not support the graphical side of Rav…

Fedora 29 Design Suite Lab available

Fedora 29 Design Suite is available for downloading with latest stable release  applications including Gimp 2.10.6 among the features.
On the bad news side, Blender 2.79b on Fedora 29 has broken user interface due to compatibility issue related to python 3.7. Workaround will be installing from the flathub directory.

Next release will be interesting considering the structural change for the incoming Fedora 30 with the advent of flatpak packages.

HP Envy x360 Convertible Ryzen 2500u update

Nearly one month later, HP Envy x360 Convertible 15  powered by Ryzen 2500U is running smoother on kernel 4.19.0 with someissues:
The LED for the mute button failed to work suggesting a possible ACPI issue.An unfortunate oversight from HP for not including a led for Num Lock button. The touchscreen function failed due to ACPI bug related to a mis-configuration of tables. Sadly, it affects all HP Envy touchscreen series equipped with AMD processors. Workaround made by an Arch user exists and no upstream Linux maintainers has picked up yet for clean up and improvment. The side effect would be an unfortunate false impression HP touchscreen with AMD processors is horrible.The gyroscope needed to automatically rotate the screen depending of the position is broken possibly due to ACPI bug.
On the positive side, I was impressed by the modular adaptability  of HP Envy x360 upgrade wise thanks to the excellent HP documentation. The board can be replaced with the powerful version of Ryzen 7 APU…
