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.

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.

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.

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

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 .
