iPad 2 on/sur Fedora

English

It has been a while I wrote on this blog because I am busy running my own design business. Aside that, I recently plug an Apple iPad 2 to import pictures and videos on a Fedora 17 running Gnome Shell 3.4 out of box. It is remarkable what a free and open source software network can do to a device intended to primarily run on iTunes software.

De retour après le manque d’écrit sur ce blog en raison d'affaire professionnel relié à l'infographie. J'ai récemment branché l'iPad 2 d'Apple pour importer les photos et les vidéos sur le système de Fedora 17 roulant sur Gnome Shell 3.4. C'est remarquable qu'un réseau de logiciels libres peut supporter sans problème un dispositif conçu pour l'usage du logiciel iTune.

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.

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.
