Fedora 8 and installation from CD/DVD

As it becomes a routine, I have replaced Moonshine (Fedora 7) by Loup Garou (Wereworf in French) that is Fedora 8 after backing up all the essential data such as email, specs and artwork for echo-icon-theme and the incoming Fedora 9. All system was succesfully detected.

One particular feature I have noticed on Fedora 8 is the long awaited ability to install package from either CD and DVD. That is a major welcome addition for people who still have a narrowband connection. See the image showing InstallMedia as access point from optical drive or possibly USB.

Un point particulier de Fedora 8 est l'habileté d'installer un paquetage à partir d'un disque compact or un DVD. Ceci est une excellente addition bien attendu des utilisateurs n'ayant pas de connexion à large bande. Voyez l'image ci-dessous ou InstallMedia est coche indiquant l'accès des lecteurs optiques ou possiblement USB.

Glad to see people appreciating it. Unfortunately, it took way too long to land the code just due to not enough round 'tuits :(

Getting ready for Vanlug

Busy weekend. I just took a break for making a presentation of Fedora Core 6 and Fedora Project for Vancouver Linux Users Group which will debut on November 20, 2006. A local computer store was kind enough to give me a laptop for the demonstration of Fedora Core 6 (Zod) live spin and Sugar interface from OLPC Project. Should you be interested to view that event and live near Vancouver, here is the address .

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.

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
