Food for thought

Winter session is almost over. I have been busy tuning some assignments for Graphic Design class. I have learned a lot from the making of logo, magazine, art history (from Art Nouveau to Contemporary styles), printing procedure, and advanced typography. Ironically, I had indirectly know the process before inside Fedora Project especially the making of the logo.

Working on creating the set of Echo icon is quite fun but the lack of time, due to class and the development of Fedora 9 art theme (shoowa as candidate), prevent me to progress to the point it won't be ready for Fedora 9. The big challenge is to make sure the guideline is easily comprehensive. The lesson on that project is a better planning.

Speaking about Fedora 9 theme, it looks like Waves is the preferred for the development due to its organic shape opposed to Shoowa with its geometrical version. The difficulty is to incorporate those geometry that won't necessarily distract desktop users but subtle. Now that the deadline is approaching fast, the challenge seems to be difficult but not insurmountable.

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
