wikitcms, relval, fedfind and testdays moved to Pagure

Today I moved several of my pet projects from the cgit instance on this server to Pagure. You can now find them here: (python-)wikitcms relval fedfind testdays The home page URLs for each project on this server – e.g. – also now redirect to the Pagure project pages. I also deleted some other repos […]

Libre Application Summit 2016

I had a great time at the Libre Application Summit in sunny, hipster moustachioed Portland – many thanks to Sri for inviting me. Sorry this blog post is a bit late, but things have been really busy with the Fedora 25 Beta release (which we signed off on today). For a first year conference without […]

X crash during Fedora update when system has hybrid graphics and systemd-udev is in update

Hi folks! This is a PSA about a fairly significant bug we’ve recently been able to pin down in Fedora 24+. Here’s the short version: especially if your system has hybrid graphics (that is, it has an Intel video adapter and also an AMD or NVIDIA one, and it’s supposed to switch to the most […]

Libre Application Summit, Heroes of Fedora, commenting, and so much more!

Hmm, I didn’t blog for a while and now I feel like I have three posts all coming along at once… Best thing I read today: The Register poking the Apple PR department with a series of blunt sticks Best thing I read yesterday: Jenn Schiffer on blog comments. It took me years to figure […]

PSA: Failure to boot after kernel update on Skylake systems

Hi folks! So in the last couple of days a significant issue in all Fedora releases has come to our attention, affecting (so far) several systems that use the Intel ‘Skylake’ hardware platform. Systems that appear to be affected so far – at least with some system firmware versions – include: Lenovo Thinkpad T460, Lenovo […]

Notes on a couple of FreeIPA bugs: host group sudo rules and failure to start with recent pki-core on older, upgraded installs

So I’ve had a couple of issues with my personal FreeIPA deployment in the last couple of months that I never managed to dig into properly because of work on Fedora 24. But now F24 is done, I had time to figure them out, finally. The first bug is simpler and probably has a wider […]

On Snappy and Flatpak: business as usual in the Canonical propaganda department

NOTE: this post is entirely personal. The opinions are my own and do not represent Fedora or Red Hat. The facts, however, are all 100% truthy. 😉 Just to make it 100% clear for any visiting journalists etc. who don’t know me: I work for Red Hat, on Fedora. I am not unbiased and am […]

Fedora 24 delay, and more openQA work

You probably read a more sensationalized version of this on Phoronix already, but we had the Fedora 24 go/no-go meeting today and decided to slip for a week. The sole reason for this was this blocker bug, which is to do with booting Windows from the Fedora boot menu on a UEFI system, wasn’t fixed […]

Testing FreeIPA in openQA

Here, children, gather round and let Uncle Adam tell you a story. Are you ready? Here we go! Once upon a time there were some test cases for a thing called FreeIPA. And once upon a time, two poor people called Adam and Stephen did have to run these tests manually, all the goddamn time. […]

LinuxFest NorthWest 2016

Time for another of my increasingly irregular blog posts 🙂 I was at LinuxFest NorthWest 2016 last weekend. I’ve been going to LFNW for several years now, and I look forward to it every year – it’s just a great conference, which has managed to grow to nearly 2000 registrations this year while keeping its […]
