Fedora 12 on/sur Tablet PC

English

Fedora 12 release is cleanly installed on Tablet PC and the backup is fully restored despite the mishap from pybackpack application due to its inability to use CD/DVD. The whole installation was smooth. I notice both Keyboard and Language selection can be combined on the same page and am planning for a mockup.

The stylus is fully supported out of box which has become a norm for me as art (designer is an artist). Gone is the tweaking of xorg.conf.

On negative side is the backlight that will stay in low level and the hotkey will not work after either suspend or hibernation of laptop. Screen cannot be rotated out of box in Tablet mode and some keys will not be recognized.

La sortie Fedora 12 est nettement installé sur la TabletPC et les archives restorés malgré les problèmes de l'application pybackpack en raison du manque de support de CD/DVD. L'installation complète est sans histore. J'ai remarqué que les pages Clavier et Langage peuvent être combinées en une et je prévois une maquette à ce propos.

Le stylus est bien supporté étant la norme pour un artiste (designer est en fait un artiste). Plus besoin de manipuler xorg.conf.

Le bémol est la lumière d'écran restant au bas niveau et ses touches ne fonctionne pas après la suspension ou l'hibernation du portable. L'écran virtuel ne tourne pas au mode Tablette et certaines clefs ne sont pas reconnues.

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
