Using Compiz in KDE on Fedora Core 6

Filed under
HowTos

Well, as I already said, Fedora Core 6 is out - and it is pretty amazing!

Ok, I have to admit that the install (I normally reinstall which is no problem since my home has its own partition) wasn’t easy at all. Grub wasn’t set up properly, and I had to reinstall it with the repair tools. Additionally localhost (!) wasn’t set up right for ipv4 which I had to correct as well. But after that everything worked fine.

And I have to admit, the new system works great. Ok, sure, since FC is a de-facto GNOME distribution, most of the improvements are there - but that’s ok, I know how to change my way to get KDE running on the provided system.

Full Tip.

Linux 4.2 Bringing Support For ARCv2, HS38 CPU Cores

The ARC architecture updates for the Linux 4.2 kernel have landed. With the ARC architecture updates in Linux 4.2 comes support for HS38 cores, which in turn are based on the Synopsys next-gen ISA known as ARCv2. The ARCv2 ISA is faster and more feature-rich than their original instruction set architecture. The HS38 cores have a 10-stage pipeline core with MMU support, SMP up to four cores, and other new features. The HS38 processor is still 32-bit and is "optimized for high-performance embedded applications running Linux." Read more Also: Radeon & AMDGPU DRM Fixes Queue Up For Linux 4.2

The Linux Setup - Neil McGovern, Debian Project Leader

I’m the current Debian Project Leader—which is a very impressive title that boils down to being a figurehead for the Debian project. I first started getting involved with Debian in 2003, and have wended my way through various roles in the project, from designing t-shirts to being the Release Manager for the last three releases, Lenny, Squeeze and Wheezy. In my day job, I’m the engineering manager for Collabora, an open source software consultancy which is fairly similar—basically making sure that all the engineers are happy and helping unblock any problems that come along.
