Fedora 12 Constantine --> Fedora 13 Goodard via preupgrade

Français


La transition de Constantine à Goddard via preupgrade s'est effectué avec succès. Le plus important est de définir la taille de la section /boot à 500 Mo afin de faciliter le processus. À cause du bogue dans le paquet xorg-x11-drv-wacom, Le stylus ne fonctionnait pas sur la tablette (Tablet PC), une mise à jour en utilisant le dépot update-testing a reglé ce problem. En tout, le système est operationnel sans encombre. De plus, la nouvelle version de gnome-shell est tres fluide et utilisable.

Sun's promise to open source Java vs GCJ

According to this Press Release via OS News , it appears Sun Microsystems allow the redistribution of their Java development for Linux distributions under a new license called Operation System Distributor's License for Java or in short "Distro License for Java". Currently, only binaries are licensed as the source code is not available for the public although SUN promise to open source Java . I wonder if that announcement will affect the whole GCJ on which Fedora Project is focusing.

Using AMD RX Vega driver OpenCL on Fedora 29

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

From what I understand, apt-deb is static by nature unlike yum (dynamic) which could probably explain faster transaction. Update : Added author's blog related to the article.
