I’ve got a desktop that I use as my primary work machine. It runs Fedora 18 and drives 2 monitors via an old but serviceable GeForce card. Unfortunately what that means is I’ve got to live in a world of crappy compromises. It took me quite a while just to get things working. I started […]
I’ve written before about the Fedora switch to systemd. I don’t follow things like that too closely so I first noticed it when my system started telling me. Then I quickly brushed up on the new way I’d start and stop my db and web servers and moved on. I wasn’t crazy about the change […]
Hooked up a Wacom Intuos 3 graphics tablet to my Fedora 15 box today. That’s it. Everything just worked. Sort of like when I was on the shared drive from the office server on Friday. No messing about with Samba – no issues – just worked. I love living in the future.

My Fedora machine has finished upgrading to 11. I didn’t time it exactly but it looks like it took roughly 4 hours. That’s primarily due to the fact that it’s an older and slower machine. No errors or issues at this point – the login page doesn’t have the blue sun with solar flares any […]
