Jour/Day 0 - Libre Graphics Meeting

I arrived in Montreal last Wednesday night. Looking for the right place for the LGM conference turned out to be complicated because of the lack of information from the website. After getting the right information, I brought the OLPC XO-2 machine to the Polytechnique computer retailer in order to fix the keyboard issues. It was an opportunity to take picture of the disassembled XO-2 machine which was surprisely easy to remount confirming its educational purpose. After finding the room where LGM will occur, I contacted Mairin, Red Hat employee, who recently arrived. For the information, LGM is using Fedora Core 6 for the presentation.


Je suis arrivé à Montreal mercredi soir. Chercher le bon endroit pour le LGM s'est averé compliqué en raison du manque d'information du site. Apres en avoir obtenu, j'ai amené le portable OLPC XO-2 pour fixed le problème du clavier. C'était aussi l'occasion de voir la machine demontée et d'en prendre les photos. La facilité d'assemblage confirme aussi le but éducationnel du project OLPC. Puis j'ai contacté Mairin, l'employé de Red Hat, arrivée recemment. Pour un detail, le LGM utilise Fedora Core 6 pour la présentation.

Should you be interested to view that event and live near Vancouver, here is the address .

Detailing the installation of AMD OpenCL rpm for Fedora

Revisiting the previous blog and freshly reinstalling Fedora Design Suite due to a busted boot, I look at the official guideline from AMD Driver for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and write a way to improve the process of installing on Fedora 29 in this example. Extracting the tarball contains the following: amdgpu-install amdgpu-pro-install symlink to amdgpu doc folder repodata folder RPMS folder containing rpm package Executing the command ./amdgpu-install -opencl=pal --headless sadly failed on Fedora on that line: ./amdgpu-install -y --opencl=pal --headless Last metadata expiration check: 0:30:51 ago on Mon 19 Nov 2018 07:13:43 PM PST. No match for argument: amdgpu Upon closer look, the script failed to created a temporary repository on /var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local probably explaining why amdgpu metapackage name failed to display. Someone should investigate and provide a fix. At least, we find out Fedora support is available but unofficial. Due to its design, Gnome

No network on Fedora 9 x86_64 follow up

Following my post related to NetworkManager . I have found out about the workaround. If you have x86_64 system with 4GB support enabled, you should disable it in order to make NetworkManager work. I am not sure if that bug affects other distributions so, possibly the bug may be related to the x86_64 kernel. Let see if my theory can be verified.
