Readying Fedora Design Suite 25

LuxRender plugin now selectable on Blender in Software

The official release of Fedora 25 Design Suite is nearby with the following changes:
  • Inheriting the features from Fedora Workstation, it is now possible to rename several files.
  • Blender just reaches 2.78a with several bugs fixes. Non-western speaking users will delight the issues related to the interface is fixed.
  • LuxRender plugin for Blender  is updated to 1.6 bring new features. That version no longer supports 32 bit architectures known as x86. In addition, the plugin is now visible as addon for Blender in Software.
  • Sadly, Yafaray plugin for Blender is currently retired from the Fedora repository thus dropped from the default selection. It is still available for the previous release. The plan is to bring it back for the next release as I took over as packager.
  • Some applications like Gpick are unable to properly run on the default Wayland session and needs X session.
  • New fonts are available Grand Hotel and Molot (a big thanks for TypeType foundry for making it license friendly) needed as template for Fedora Magazine featured image.
  • Inkscape (pre-release of 0.92) gains new support of creating tables via plugin
  • Suppplemental wallpapers from Fedora 25 replaced their F23 version as default.
  • Pitivi 0.97, a video editor, received a fix and should properly.
All listed feature will be available on the wiki

No network on Fedora 9 x86_64 follow up

Following my post related to NetworkManager . I have found out about the workaround. If you have x86_64 system with 4GB support enabled, you should disable it in order to make NetworkManager work.

Detailing the installation of AMD OpenCL rpm for Fedora

Revisiting the previous blog and freshly reinstalling Fedora Design Suite due to a busted boot, I look at the official guideline from AMD Driver for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and write a way to improve the process of installing on Fedora 29 in this example. Extracting the tarball contains the following: amdgpu-install amdgpu-pro-install symlink to amdgpu doc folder repodata folder RPMS folder containing rpm package Executing the command ./amdgpu-install -opencl=pal --headless sadly failed on Fedora on that line: ./amdgpu-install -y --opencl=pal --headless Last metadata expiration check: 0:30:51 ago on Mon 19 Nov 2018 07:13:43 PM PST.
