fedup My Way To Fedora 22

Fedora 22 was released May 26th. You can get the torrent here. It's my preferred method of getting the ISO image of the distro I want to install. If you want to install it "fresh" then create a USB image you can use to install fedora.

I am running Fedora 21 right now and it happens that fedora has an official upgrade tool called fedup. Install fedup by:
#yum install fedup

I'm using fedup for the first time since using Fedora Core. So I started by:
#yum update fedup fedora-release
to update the existing system.

Then start fedup by:
#fedup --network 22
which tells fedup to create the necessary repo links to fedora 22 and the boot image.

What's so special about my case is that my Internet connectivity is limited by a data cap. I know that I won't be able to run fedup in one sitting. So I had to stop the upgrade process along the way and continue the next day. fedup is happening in the terminal. So just stop the process and fedup remembers where to continue.

So far no glitches, no problems in the logs.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
