Fedora 23 Upgrade failed. Even the “Recommended method” link does not mention the bug…


Hi.

A blog entry after long time .. huh … and the thing is simple:

There is this bug – https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1260989 – which explains why I was not able to upgrade. And seems like only way to have my upgrade working is to wait till RTM version for Fedora 23… the questions is… will I wait so long or simply give a f*** and install Windows 10, BECAUSE, BASICALLY ..

THAT S*** WORKS!!!

I already upgraded 3 machines w/o single issue… and w/o preparation of the upgrade ( disk cleanup, defragmentation, uninstallations, etc.. ). Message?

WAKE UP, RedHat – YOU ARE F****** UP LINUX CREDIBILITY!!! In daily basis…

Never though there is finally some simple and handy way to link all Game Content Delivery systems


And there is. Like there is LinkedIn for Professionals, IGN has created nice way to link stuff for Gamers. What is more appealing is the fact there is a blogging module ( for example, mine ):

Pretty nifty, right? 🙂

AMD Catalyst 15.7 finally installable on Fedora 22


After long and invasive / massive battle to get AMD code running on Fedora 20+, FOSS/Libre community finaaly made it happen!

A look in past.

The first was my post (https://linardsliepins.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/amd-catalyst-15-5-beta-for-linux-but-is-it-for-kernel-4-x/) and bluehat’s post (https://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2015/05/30/installing-the-proprietary-amd-catalyst-14-12-fglrx-driver-on-fedora-21-with-linux-kernel-4-04/) about 15.1 / 15/3 installation on Fedora 21. Then, it evolved to post of AMD Catalyst 15.3 installation on Fedora 22 with need to downgrade X.Org 1.17 to 1.16.

After that, there was [invalid by format] request (https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3687) to RPMFusion to put bits together and make this build as rpm .. it was very angry and rudely denied stating that such approach is ‘hacking’ .. oh well, at some point it is right. Can not deny it.

Then, after long talk and some weeks, community is finally able to install latest drivers on Fedora 22 without X.org downgrade. Of course, there needs to be do some manual patching to enable kernel 4.0 support for this driver.

And now, suddenly, the dropbox repo is offered to test catalyst driver.

WOOHOO and HOORAYY!!!!

AMD Catalyst 15.3 Finally installable on Fedora 22


Again the Open-Source Community saves the day!

Some touch of history:

In the beginning there was the post from Phoronix that there is AMD Catalyst 15.x driver available, but it is jet only supported by X.org 1.16 Server. After that, there was some pretty initiative action by the blog members. Her is my original post: https://wordpress.com/post/16143218/295/

As you can see, the situation was pretty awkward…

Well, if you follow their link and then follow the links withing the blog, you noticed that there was made Guide to use Downgrade technique to install Catalyst driver in Fedora 22. The RPMFusion did not accept it as it is “hack”. Oh well….

And after some time I decided to tackle Google again and the findings are simply great: Now there is straight forward procedure to install AMD Catalyst 15.3 on Fedora 22. And no HACKING!!!

See this comment: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/211165/how-to-install-amd-catalyst-15-3-fglrx-15-20-1013-on-fedora-22

wooohooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Puppet is ****ing outdated in Fedora 22


Just after interesting findings in my previous blog posts about WineHQ (https://linardsliepins.wordpress.com/2015/05/20/a-little-yet-ichy-mess-about-fedora-nad-winehq-cooperation-to-deliver-latest-updates-to-nix-users/) and AMD Catalyst (https://linardsliepins.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/amd-catalyst-15-5-beta-for-linux-but-is-it-for-kernel-4-x/), the new happy happy stuff reviles…

As title says, it is about DevOps – Automation Tools ( for Enterpisrses ) – Puppet in the focus here.

First, the fact, that it got 3.7.x version, is pretty strange for so DevOps oriented companies product.

Secondly, Puppets online documentation do not clearly mention where to use sudo and where not to use sudo for privileges.

Thirdly, Node Definitions in SITE.PP ( AS PUPPET DOCS SUGGESTS ), simply do not work for puppet apply command. With sample from docs I got syntax error of ‘}’. WHAT THE FUCK???!!!

Fourthly, This release still use chkconfig utility. Source and Fix: https://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/17593

Fifthly, puppet installation do not handle and docs do not mention some interesting this like ports and firewalls. So, had again google to find out that I had to do this ( Quote from blog below ):

Needless to say that step one would always be to ensure that the names are resolving and the puppet client and master can communicate. Also make sure that port 8140 is white listed.

.. using this ( not firewall-cmd or anything else ) …

https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/8231/how-to-enable-a-port-in-firewall/

Sixty, interesting spamming in console, very similar to this bug: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.suse.opensuse.ruby/691

That’s it for now… 🙂

P.S. Thanks for info from this blog: http://blog.adityapatawari.com/2012/02/puppet-and-common-errors.html – it helped to solve some issues.

UPDATE:

Minute after updating this blog, I decided to reboot my virtual fedora 22 server installation after update deployment. Well, once I put dnf upgrade, I had surprise – fedora had been pushing puppet-4.1 as updates and it just rolled out. Well. Rebooted. And again tried to install this rtyler-jenkins module… and it succeeded. We’ll see if I can start jenkins service…

AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta for Linux. But is it for Kernel 4.x ?


Long awaited, I guess, but is it worth bothering? https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=AMD-Catalyst-15.5-Linux As we all know, there is some work done to get 14.12 working for Fedora 21 / 22 systems already. More info in this blog: https://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2015/03/22/installing-the-proprietary-amd-catalyst-14-12-fglrx-driver-on-fedora-21-for-installation-with-kernel-3-19/ Quoting:

Yeah, I’m working on Fedora 22; I just installed the Fedora 22 KDE Plasma Desktop Spin from scratch on my AMD system and so far, unfortunately, the driver installs properly but throws a segmentation fault at startup, preventing the display of any GUI whatsoever. I’m looking into it and will post more soon, but in the meanwhile, I don’t advise moving to Fedora 22 if you depend on the Proprietary Catalyst driver. Hopefully that advisement will be short-lived.

UPDATE:

Please vote / support AMD Catalyst 15.101 package for Fedora 22 on X.Org X11 Server 1.16 from RPMFusion.

Fedora 22 (Workstation) and FGLRX ( AMD Catalyst )


Sooo … recently I found some guide for FC21 users …

http://ilevex.eu/post/106904892091/how-to-use-fglrx-amd-catalyst-on-fedora-21

But what about FC22 ( Fedora 22 )? Does these instructions apply to them also?
