Fedlet

New Fedlet build (finally)!

Yup, I finally got around to putting together a new build of Fedlet, my Fedora remix for Intel Bay Trail tablets like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, Asus T100, Lenovo Miix 2 and others. The new build has a current Fedora 21 userland and a 3.16 kernel, which brings some substantial hardware support improvements. Check […]

Downtime: impending

Looks like I’ll be doing the big router / modem move in about five minutes. Be down for a few minutes if all goes well, or for rather longer if it all explodes (as no doubt it will)…

Fedlet update

Since I forgot to actually include any Fedlet news in my last post, here’s some instead! So I’ve done a few 3.16rc kernel builds in the repo. Modesetting still doesn’t work on my Venue 8 Pro, but various other folks have reported it does work on their hardware. I did a new image build last […]

A long-winded and probably inaccurate guide to the kernel development process (particularly regarding Baytrail)

Hi folks! So I’ve been working on Miscellaneous Stuff this week – a little release criteria drafting here, a little dealing with NetworkManager package splits there, a little discovering significant systemd bugs, yadda yadda – and still trying to get a Fedlet 3.16 build that works for me. 3.16 kernels still won’t light up the […]

LibreOffice bug huntin’, Fedlet status, and Fedora.next work

Ryan Lerch points out that LibreOffice is running a “bug hunt” for its development version, and wants Fedora users to help out! You can get the official packages for the bug hunt here – I don’t know if they’ll accept results from the Rawhide 4.3.0 builds. In other news – I know Fedlet has been […]

LinuxFest NorthWest, Fedlet status, Fedora.next work, and more…

I’ve been a bad boy not blogging again; Google+ is just too easy. But it’s also evil, so I’ve signed up for Diaspora again and am hoping it becomes less of a wasteland at some point. It’s gotten a lot smoother in the last two years everyone forgot about it, so give it a look. […]

Fedlet news, .next work, and Marie Nordin is amazing

Long time no blog, but I had to blog my admiration for the work Marie Nordin has done on Fedora Badges as part of her OPW internship. Just look at that list – and all amazingly high quality work, too. Congratulations and thanks a lot to her. I wish I’d had more time to help […]

Presenting…Fedlet, and it’s my anniversary(ish)

So, today’s headline news: I finally stopped foot-dragging and put up a public image of Fedlet, my Fedora remix for Bay Trail based tablets. If you have a Dell Venue 8 Pro, Lenovo Miix2, or Toshiba Encore, you can go to that link, grab the live image, and give it a shot. If you have […]

The Fedlet, revived (or, Fedora Linux on a Dell Venue 8 Pro – “Bay Trail”)

I’ve always thought it’d be kinda cool to be able to run Fedora on a tablet. There are some others who’d like this too, and we’ve had the ‘Fedora Mini’ and ‘Fedora Mobility’ sub-projects sort of targeting this in the past, but we never really quite got there. I call this mythical tablet on which […]
