Mageia Blog (English) : Mageia 8 Artwork Contest

30 de Julho de 2020, 12:29, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

As with every release, the artwork for Mageia 8 will come from you, the great community that supports and makes Mageia possible. With development well underway, Alpha 1 has just been released, it’s time to start getting the artwork ready. As in previous years, we’re looking for your contributions and ideas, but not just images and photos – if you have icons and logos, or ideas on how login screens or animations should look, then it’s time to discuss or show them off.

Image credit XKCD

We will normally choose a digital abstract piece using the colours of the Mageia logo for the signature background It should be easily cropped to different aspect ratios without losing the feel of the image and have a resolution of at least 3,200 by 2,400px, in order to accommodate a wide variety of monitors. Alternative background and screensavers have less restrictive guidelines, so if you feel like flexing your creativity, we’d love to see what you come up with.

Rules
The contest begins on the 30th of July 2020 and will run until the 20th of August 2020, Mageia will provide 1 official background, 10 additional backgrounds and all the other bits we do to make Mageia look great. If you’d like to participate, it’s easy:
Please submit your work to the Mageia 8 artwork drop. You also have the option to send a link to the Atelier mailing list. The Atelier team will choose 10 backgrounds from different contributors to be included in the “additional backgrounds”.

Prerequisites

  • minimal size: 3,200×2,400 px for images, preferably SVG for icons
  • no borders
  • no text inside: the Mageia logo may be placed for show, but will need to be removable
  • scalable or croppable for all possible aspect ratios: 4:3, 16:9, 16:10 etc.
  • License: CC By SA 3.0 or later

Please also have a look here for more information about things you have to watch out for or to see previous Mageia wallpapers. Some screensavers and the Mageia 7 background are uploaded on the artwork drop for reference.
Photos will be considered for screensavers and additional backgrounds provided no recognisable people are visible. Please avoid copyrighted artwork, or, you must own the copyright and agree to the CC By SA 3.0 license.
All the work needs to be original with the source files (SVG, xcf, etc) available and within Mageia’s artwork guidelines. Please upload a png or similar as they are much easier for previewing. We hope that these guidelines will make everything clear and help you to make something that will make Mageia look great.
The guidelines cover the Official Mageia Logo, colour scheme, website motif, fonts, wallpaper and other elements. The Mageia official logo is also covered by our Trademark Policy.
Take a moment to learn the rules, then, jump in and create with us!


Final choice
The final winners will be chosen by the Mageia council and announced on the Mageia blog.



Mageia Blog (English) : The first step towards Mageia 8 – Alpha 1 is available for testing

1 de Julho de 2020, 22:55, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

We are happy to announce the release of the test images of Mageia 8. These are available to early testers to help with the development towards a stable final release of Mageia 8. There have been large scale updates of all packages as well as new features implemented to improve what Mageia already offered.
Some of the key updates include:    

  • Kernel – 5.7.4
  • glib – 2.31
  • gcc – 10.1.1
  • rpm – 4.16.0
  • Chromium – 81 
  • Firefox – 68.9
  • LibreOffice – 6.4.4
  • Plasma – 5.19.1
  • GNOME 3.36
  • Xfce 4.15.2

A full list of included packages is available in the .idx file for the installation media.

For those that want to jump in and test straight away, the images can be downloaded here, as always with pre-release images, use your best judgement.

The available ISO images are the same as in Mageia 7, offering installation media for both 32 and 64bit systems, 64bit live images for Plasma, GNOME and Xfce, as well as a 32bit live image for Xfce.

Some of the major improvements include improved ARM support, all packages have now been built for Aarch64 and ARM v7, completing the transition away from Python 2 and very recent hardware support. There have been many improvements to the installer, which now has better support for F2FS and Nilfs2. Both the live and classical environments have been improved with the use of ZStd compression, this will give faster boot and installation times. There has also been considerable work with package management, rpm 4.16 has brought many improvements including automatic SSD detection and improved transaction speed, while metadata parsing within urpmi has also been accelerated through the use of ZStd compression, AppStream metadata use has been improved to allow better integration with GNOME and Plasma. A full list of features can improvements can be seen here.

We hope that the release works well for you, but if there are issues please report them to our Bugzilla so that we can get around to sorting them for release. If you want to get involved in ISO testing, packaging or any other aspect of Mageia, there is lots of information here.

A huge hand to all of the people involved with getting this release out of the door, and to all of the testers for giving us the feedback that we need to get Mageia 8 ready. We look forward to hearing your feedback!



Mageia Blog (English) : Chronicle in May

25 de Maio de 2020, 16:19, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

It’s been a very long time since you’ve heard from us on this blog. Now it’s time to give you some fresh news, because no matter what it seems, a lot of work has been done since then.

Organization

Many teams — the dev and QA teams in particular — are now working on a schedule for the upcoming Mageia 8. It is now available online. It seems this summer is going to be all about testing our new release!

You can already take part in the testing and check if all of our Drak tools are functioning properly, and help the QA team. The coming months should allow us to report any new bugs or update existing reports in our Bugzilla. If you are comfortable working with Perl, your coding skills will be much appreciated to help correcting all the known bugs in our Drak tools.

Infrastructure

Our “Mageia Planet” — which agregates blog articles from our active users — has just been updated and is now up and running. We have also updated the list of blogs that are featured on Mageia Planet. Please let us know if you are the owner of a blog about Mageia which can be added! Our main blogs version was also updated.

What is boiling in Cauldron?

The new 0.15 version of LXQt is now available. New versions of LXQt don’t come out so often, and we think this one could be interesting. What are your first impressions about it?

Also, we’ve got a lot of nice little dishes that are being prepared for the upcoming Menu… Plasma 5.18 LTS along with KDE 20.04 applications, Gnome 3.36, Cinnamon 4.6, all of which will be served with kernel 5.6…

Mageia 7 updates

A security alert has been published concerning our current version of LibreOffice, which is also EOL at the end of the month… Therefore, LibreOffice’s latest version 6.4.4 has been built and is currently being thoroughly tested.



Juan Luis Baptiste : New tool to update mageia docker images

14 de Abril de 2020, 17:02, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

It took me a long time but finally I got some time to update our mageia docker images that were not updated since last year. One of the reasons for this is that the image update process is rather complicated, it has many steps to do to get the image built, tested and available at docker hub

So to improve this process I have written a new tool called build2relase. This script takes care of:
  • Building images for all supported mageia versions and for the hardware architectures they support.
  • Prepare git branches for commit as needed by upstream.
  • Push new images to github.
  • Update and push the docker official images library.
This tool simplifies the update process significantly, the only thing missing after running it is to create a pull request to merge the docker library changes on our fork upstream.  Now, to build all images is simplified to running this command:

    # ./build2release.sh -b -p -U -v

That command will build all images (-b), push them to github (-p) and update our docker-library/official-images fork (-U). With this  new tool updating images will be much faster and easier, which will mean image updates done more often, probablr once a month at least.



Bruno Cornec : Using zoom on Mageia 7

26 de Março de 2020, 14:22, por Planet Mageia (English) - 0sem comentários ainda

As lots of people confined in these difficult times, I’m working remotely. And here at home, as when I’m at work, I’m using a Linux machine to perform all my tasks. What else ?!!

Among the interactive tools I can use to interact wih my colleagues, there is Skype Enterprise (no luck on LInux, so using just a phone call, painful), HPE My Room (multi-platform with many features and usable on Mageia 7), Microsoft Teams (which is working nicely on Mageia 7 without issue, and you even have source code access under GPLv3 for an unofficial client), and the fully FLOSS Jitsi.

But some of my recent meeting requests were also using zoom. And while there is indeed a Linux client, due to libraries versions incompatibilities, it refuses to install on Linux, and even when forced to, doesn’t launch.

So I had to create a small Fedora:32 container, and with some suitable parameters, zoom is now working in it. To ease it, I have create a small script to launch the stuff:

#!/bin/bash
# Licensed under the GPLv3 🙂
mkdir -p /tmp/docker-fedora
export LUID=`id -u`
cd /tmp/docker-fedora
if [ ! -f zoom_x86_64.rpm ]; then
    wget https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_x86_64.rpm
fi
RD="/home"
WD="$RD/$USER/prj/fedora/"

cat > Dockerfile << EOF
FROM fedora:32
MAINTAINER bcornec@mageia.org
RUN dnf makecache
RUN dnf -y update || true
COPY zoom_x86_64.rpm /
RUN dnf install -y /zoom_x86_64.rpm
RUN dnf install -y pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils libglvnd-gles
RUN useradd $USER -u $LUID  -N -M -d $RD/$USER
RUN usermod -a -G audio $USER
RUN echo "$USER ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/dnf" >> /etc/sudoers
WORKDIR $WD
USER $USER
CMD zoom
EOF
stat=0
build=0
docker inspect pb:zoombuild 2>&1 > /dev/null
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
    if [ "$BASH_ARGV" = "-f" ]; then
        docker rmi pb:zoombuild
         build=1
    fi
else
     build=1
fi
if [ $build -eq 1 ]; then
    docker build --file=Dockerfile -t pb:zoombuild .
    stat=$?
fi
if [ $stat -eq 0 ]; then
    # Priviledge needed for zoom command in ctn
    docker run --device /dev/snd --device /dev/usb --rm -v $RD/$USER:$RD/$USER --cap-add=SYS_ADMIN -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v /run/user/$LUID/pulse/native:/run/pulse/native -e PULSE_SERVER=/run/pulse/native -e PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH -ti pb:zoombuild
fi

Just run that script and you can join a zoom conf call, benefiting from sound at least (I have no webcam to test the video at the moment).

So now, dear mageians no excuse to stay confined without contacts with your colleagues 😉
