Fedora 21 Release Candidate 1

I have been running Fedora 21 for a while now on my main laptop. I have also been testing some of the TCs and RCs as time permits.With release candidate 1, I think lots of things are fairly ironed out. I think Fedora 21 is going to be a fantastic release!

The remain "major" bugs (officially, blocker bugs) are listed here -

These could use some testing with the RC images.

Go Fedora! :D

Owncloud is awesome!!

I have finally setup owncloud and mediawiki on my "home server" (well, I actually set it up about a month ago) - I have to say - It's awesome!

My "server" is actually one of my older laptops running EL-7. Setting up owncloud was a breeze - thanks to excellent documentation!

I updated the xfdashboard package this morning to version 0.3.4. The big arrival with this update is that there are multiple themes that can be installed.

The themes available are

The themes are available in a sub-package called xfdashboard-themes.

Changing Themes
To change the theme, either use xfce4-settings-editior or in a terminal type,


xfconf-query -c xfdashboard -p /theme -n -t string -s {theme-name}

Blogging again - two package updates

Let's see how regular in blogging I am this time around!

Kevin pushed Xfdesktop-4.10.3 update to rawhide and F21 yesterday (or was it Sunday?). I have built the update for Fedora 20 and have pushed the same. 

Leave some karma, please! :)


In the EPEL world, I have pushed gparted-0.19.1 as an update for EL-6. Although this is a major version update, this version fixes lots of serious bugs and the upstream devel opened a bug listing all the bugs fixed! So, I have submitted this update with karma threshold of 7. Hopefully, this will be tested thoroughly.
