f28 end of life

"Fedora 28 will be EOL on Tuesday, May 28th, 2019. On this day we are going to close all of the Fedora 28 bugs which remain open [1]. You have a few weeks remaining to submit updates, if you have any, before the Fedora 28 release becomes unsupported.

Upgrading f30 to f31

sugar depends on Python 2

"The current plan is to remove packages with dependency on Python 2 from Fedora 32 in the middle of November 2019."

hope we can do this in time or soas spin may die...many of the required packages have already been removed ( the FTBFS policy)
in mailing list discussions devel@lists.fedoraproject.org ...soas is not building after branching as far as I can tell (.iso and arm)

Rpi3B+ vs Rpi4

important review
Note that USB3 Ports on RPi4 are Blue
Note that the Red and white enclosure of the Rpi4 allows overheating of the board; run with cover off
(lightning bolt warning in right upper corner appears when too hot)

64 bit arm (uses 3 GB of memory)

"Manjaro ARM Preview2 for Raspberry Pi 4! (Manjaro ARM Team)

The Manjaro ARM project is proud to announce the second test release for the Raspberry Pi 4! This is an indication of how far upstream (Raspberry Pi) is with 64-bit support. This is also the place where you get a preview of the upcoming XFCE edition, that will be "replacing" the LXQT images going forward. Thanks to @Darksky for making the XFCE edition a reality!"

works nicely (satellit Aug 5 2017)

How to Clear ./sugar

35px-Activity-write.png
  • When making a new VM, to clear the Sugar Journal of old entries and to avoid identity conflicts among copies of the VM, enter the command rm -rf ~/.sugar in the Terminal activity. Then shutdown the VM. This will clear all Learner information on the VM and let you start with a fresh install. Skipping this will result in collisions in the Neighborhood view of the Jabber network between separate copies of the appliance. Verify the presence of the .sugar directory by entering ls -a in Terminal.
  • When cloning a customized VM, in order to keep the Journal and installed .xo Activities, use rm -rf ~/.sugar/default/owner.key* in the Sugar Terminal, and then shutdown the VM. enter in root terminal:su (password) shutdown -h now This leaves the Journal entries and removes only the previous Learner's identity key files.
  • To clear the Sugar Journal:rm -rf ~/.sugar/default/datastore This may be needed if the Journal becomes clogged with too many entries. USE WITH CAUTION'

livecd-creator

"Why not just use livecd-creator? It is still maintained by the community (mainly Neal Gompa, see https://github.com/livecd-tools/livecd-tools ) and it supports this IMHO essential feature. And livecd-creator typically accepts kickstarts written for livemedia-creator with few to no changes, unlike the other way round. Kevin Kofler"

( 2019-07-10-raspbian-buster-full - allows changing the allocated amount of memory in the RPi4)
(This appears to increase performance)
