Screen shots in RPMdrake

Filed under
MDV

I’ve been doing some thinking about what would make Mandriva stand out and also what could help Linux distributions in general. I think that although rpmdrake is pretty good, it has room for improvement. Two features I am thinking of are screenshots of packages that are graphical and ways for end users to provide feedback about packages.

Here, I want to talk about my ideas for screenshots:

Requirements I’ve thought of:

  • Stored in srpms and owned by the package maintainer

  • Available from the mirrors for the package manager application like rpmdrake
  • Ability to be shared by other distributions
  • Everyday users able to submit screen shots to package maintainers
  • Easy to add to packages
  • Multiple screen shots per package, including where multiple packages are created from a single srpm.
  • Min/Max resolutions

rest here

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
