Fedora Design Suite 24 status

Bad news: Design Suite image for Fedora 24 will be unavailable as default on the official release due to several issues linked to the livemedia building system I have no control.

Possible workaround: on the slight good news, recent successful built image is available for testing although it did not make the cut for the general release. Unfortunately, due to a bug inside the packaging manager dnf, add-ons are missing for both Blender, Gimp and Inkscape. Worse, by the time I applied the workaround, the freeze status for Labs release was in effect with the migration of kickstart system to Pagure.
Alternate method will be to download and install Fedora Workstation then apply the command from the terminal
sudo dnf group install design-suite Difference is missing documentations related to Design Suite and supplemental wallpapers. The focus is now toward Fedora 25 where all unexpected kinks will be sorted out.

Summary of echo-icon-theme report on Virtual FUDCon

It was my first even conference on Virtual FUDCon which greatly saved time and money. In summary, echo-icon-theme will not be ready for Fedora 8 given the time constrains. Its guideline needs a rewrite started by Martin Sourada. The icons are now residing on echo-icon-theme repository which facilitates the access for contributors looking to add/update the icons. It also means the wiki page for EchoDevelopment will no longer upload icons and will serve as reference. The mouse cursors are not in the repository yet but will be available shortly. Mairin, Fedora Artwork team leader, suggested to use Tango guideline for icons smaller or equal than 24x24 while keeping the isometric view for 32x32 and above. Demitri Glezos thanked the team for the use of icons on his Transifex project . The set of icons is roughly 40 percent complete and users of other desktop environment like KDE are encouraged to test them and provide ticket to track issues. Be in mind the echo-icon-theme division tea

Using AMD RX Vega driver OpenCL on Fedora 29

The Raven Ridge APU is very capable processor to handle OpenCL inside some applications like Blender, Darktable and Gimp. 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
