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.

Drawing hair with Inkscape

My very first online tutorial is an adaption from Chris Design Drawing Hairs article using both Path and Path Editor tools which requires Inkscape 0.47 or newer. Start-up Inkscape application which should open a new blank page and set the document into landscape.  Create a path Select the bezier tool or press either Shift+F6 or B on the keyboard. Draw a line to approximately 800px or more. You can also use rectangle tool ( R or F4 as shortcut key) as a thin line illustrated in grey. While the line is selected, convert into path from the menu Path -> Stroke to Path or press Ctrl+Alt+C on the keyboard. For the rectangle, Path -> Object to Path or Ctrl+Shift+C . The result will show grey diamonds on each corner. Create a pattern On the menu, Extensions -> Modify Paths -> Add Nodes . Set the Max Segments Length to 5px. On the menu Extension -> Modify Paths -> Jitter Nodes . Leave the default settings and apply effects.

HP, Linux and ACPI

 Majority of HP hardware running on Linux and even Microsoft reported an issue related to a non-standard compliant ACPI. Notable message below repeats at least three times on the boot: 4.876549] ACPI BIOS Error (bug): AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT, Field [D128] at bit offset/length 128/1024 exceeds size of target Buffer (160 bits) (20190215/dsopcode-198)  [ 4.876555] ACPI Error: Aborting method \HWMC due to previous error (AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT) (20190215/psparse-529)  [ 4.876562] ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.WMID.WMAA due to previous error (AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT) (20190215/psparse-529) The bug is a known for years from which Linux kernel team are unable to fix without the help of vendor i.e. HP. Here is a compilation of reports: BIOS error: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. ACPI BIOS ERROR (blue screen) on startup   ACPI bad works with Linux    The good news is some errors seems harmless. Unfortunately, such errors displayed the quirks approach used by

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
