I love fedora and I think they're doing a great job on the being innovative as far as technology goes, but they really need do something about cleaning up the way the distribution looks. It hurts to say this but OpenSUSE, Ubuntu and some other distributions have done quite a good job of making their distribution look good, and offering complete themes. I still find missing icons here and there some really bad spacing... and just a general sense of no uniformity on the desktop. It feels hackish. Just my thought on a whole.

The wallpapers are great.

I like 'floral mosaic' and now it's on another page so I forget if that was #2. The others were somewhere between 'meh' and worse, imho. :-) How do I vote? I found this blog post from AdamW's blog in my feed reader.

When I went to the design team page I didn't see anything that looked like 'vote' and under current projects (Release artwork) it mentioned Fedora 12. Maybe I'll look on the forums for an easy path to vote...

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 .

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
