Bonne année / Happy New Year 2008

[Français]

Ainsi s'achève l'année 2007. Le Libre Graphic Meeting 2007 à Montréal a été le point tournant où j'ai pris la décision de commencer le cours sur les arts graphiques. Les icônes d'Echo n'ont pas été prêt pour Fedora 8 et le développement pour Fedora 9. Le portable XO a été un succès avec son lancement sous le programme G1G1 (Donnez un, recevez un) terminée le 31 décembre 2007.

Pour 2008, le but est de compléter le developpement des icônes Echo pour Fedora 9, fournir en détail le tutoriel pour la création des icones isométriques, participer à certains projets de Fedora tout en ayant des classes des arts graphiques. Une fois de plus, Bonne Année.

2007 is over. Montreal Libre Graphic Meeting 2007 was the turning point where I decided to take Graphic Design class for a year and half. Echo icons were not ready for Fedora 8 and pushed to Fedora 9 instead. XO laptop was a success with its G1G1 (give on get one) program which ended on 2007 December 31.

For 2008, the goal is to complete Echo icons development for Fedora 9, writing a tutorial for creating an isometric icons Echo uses, be more active on some Fedora projects while being in Graphic Design. One more time, Happy New Year.

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

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 .

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-dkms dkms libopencl-amdgpu-pro opencl-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. OpenCL from official AMD driver enabled on Darktable Ra
