Re: Got something good to say? ...

Fedora 21 MATE-Compiz Spin has performed pretty much perfectly (I expected as much from testing previous builds) since final full clean installation of 21-5 after the gold status was announced. While appearing to be marginally faster it also seems more power efficient than F20 since my notebook is noticeably much cooler to touch in use and the fan spins up less.

So the changes to kernel compilation and overall updates to the distribution are very much appreciated.

Inclusion of new upstream packages has enhanced the overall user experience too. For example I prefer the new slicker builds of the GNOME Sudoku and Mahjong games to their older F20 equivalents. Admittedly small things but they all contribute.

Only one very minor unresolved issue I've come across with yumex not saving the 'cleanup unused requirements is active by default' preference. There is an existing bug open for it at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1161913. So I am sure it will be dealt with at some point.

So a massive thank you for the hard work everyone put in developing the OS and bug chasing! I hope F22 developments continue the evolution of Fedora in a similar manner.

Fedora 21 workstation installed today in HP Pavillion e-017au (amd a4-5000/HD 8330). It is superfast. Extremely pleasing.

Will yumex work with dnf? dnf sql tables may have a different layout.

Hi

There is a branch of yumex which uses dnf as a backend

https://github.com/timlau/yumex-dnf

I reciprocate feelings. As i have stated above, in laptop, i installed workstation, with cinnamon, with fglrx. I am very much thankful to fedora, this forum.

In one computer with lesser configuration, i installed mate-compiz. I am enjoying that also.

I have not enough words to thank linux world.

Interestingly, both are present in MATE-Compiz Spin. We have yumex and yumex-dnf. I believe yumex is using yum-deprecated as the backend while yumex-dnf is self explanatory.

If you use a combination of both like I do, sometimes run sudo dnf migrate which merges the recorded yum transactions to dnf.

Re: Got something good to say? ...

I've just flashed my moto G with CyanogenMod 12.1 this morning using Fedora 22 MATE-Compiz and the android-tools package from Fedora repos. It was plain sailing throughout and I now have a bang up-to-date and more secure phone. It's nice to be able to use Fedora to do that process. Especially as the tools are so readily available

Re: Got something good to say? ...

I installed F23 Mate and I have to say everything works as it should. One minor glitch with sudo in terminal but this was my fault at install. I even get sound to hdmi with nvidia on the the stock driver. No nvidia driver needed. Composting works as it should.Of coarse compiz is a no go without the nvidia driver but this was expected. Good job people. Thanks for the effort.Top of the line release so far.

Last summer, my pair of gnomes appeared. It was black, with white stripes, and when the gnomes walked, they waddled.

The dog attacked one of them once, now the dog knows better than to attack gnomes.

Re: Got something good to say? ...

I believe your gnomes have been seen in this part of the world as well... I see them all the time where they have marched out into the roadway to wage war on the human population. It appears as though the only defense against these pesky gnomes is to flatten them really good with your vehicle.

I believe Bob had a few battles with the gnomes assigned to take him out a few months back, but Bob prevailed and won a great battle for humankind.

There have been numerous mugshots taken of these pesky gnomes, and even more numerous warnings issued, but people still don't believe the extent of the danger...

For the safety of all members of this forum, I am posting a mugshot... If you see any of these gnomes, do not approach unless very well shielded, and even then, don't approach!

Yes, my War was won, but at a heck of a price. I'm now in Fla. until the smoke clears. (Also, because it's a bit chilly in Colton, NY during the winter).

Yea.. a heavy price.. You are being forced to use Ubuntu until you get back to your Fedora machine..
