some of bug fixes for fedora 16 before release

during regular use of pre-release system, it is really good to know that something is fixed quickly. Lokalize is major application for translation. I am using gnome 3 on desktop and there were two major bugs from last week.

1) QT applications failed to select properly, when using in gnome -shell (Bug  ) – FIXED with qt-4.8.0-0.17.rc1.fc16

2)  ibus failed to work with gnome and kde (all applications) with Ctrl+Space (Bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=746869) – FIXED with ibus-1.4.0-4.fc16

If you are using Pre-Release system, then please update ASAP to get those updates with yum

Kpackagekit – > apper:

recently kpackagekit moved to apper. Now Fedora 16 has apper as GUI of packagekit for KDE desktop. While new interface has various new feature, but there are still some bug exist (I am tester, so feature you can look here yourself).

XKB keyboard layouts and IBus:

While integration of IBus with gnome continue in Fedora 16 (from Fedora 15). Fedora 16 has bug for Indic locales that there duplicate entries in IBus Preference menu regarding keyboard layouts like

Hindi Inscript (m17n)

Hindi  – Which is from XKB and basically inscript

So there are two problem:

1) XKB has no detail about layout, it is just saying “HINDI”

2) it is already exist in m17n-contrib and people are using with iBus from long time. So there are two layouts for same purpose.

if you have any comment please update bug report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=747507

It was busy day as Fedora QA team member, there are around 2 new bug files, both were duplicate, Fedora i18 Meeting has great discussion regarding bugs and i18n/translation release-criteria (Fedora i18n Meeting log)

grub2 recovery for Fedora 16

 

Previously ‘grub’ was installed. With Fedora 16 upgrade I thought to try ‘grub2’. grub and grub2 had package conflict, for which I need to remove ‘grub’ package before installing grub2. After installing grub2, there were few configurations, which I need to made to work it properly (I learnt that later after failing to boot and using rescue mode)

1) install grub2 as following

$ yum remove grub -y

$yum install grub2 –y

2) you need to create grub.cfg file manually with following command (and it is not in /etc/grub(2).cfg)

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

(it detected Windows, Linux (Fedora, Linux Mint) automatically and added to configuration file)

3) install grub2 to MBR

grub2-install /dev/sda

Now it is complete and showing many kernel with Windows and Linux Mint.
