To make our August meetings more convenient for working group members
to attend, we have approved a change to move all future meetings up by
one week. The new meeting schedule is:
Aug 05 - Christian Schaller (next week)
Aug 19 - Owen Taylor
Sep 2 - Langdon White
Sep 16 - chair TBD
Sep 30 - chair TBD
Meet time remains unchanged, 9:00 EDT on every second Monday. We're
just swapping the set of Mondays that we'll meet on.
I've proposed some packaging changes  to Fedora wine package. TLDR: It
splits d3d libraries into subpackages and lays groundwork for future dxvk
packaging . Details are in the PR.
*What is DXVK?*
Vulkan-based D3D11 and D3D10 implementation for Linux / Wine. In short, you
can replace wine's d3d10/11 implementation with DXVK, which typically
results in huge performance gains and far superior compatibility compared
to wine d3d libraries.
You can find more here: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk
*How to test?*
*# Have either Fedora 30 or Fedora 31*
dnf copr enable frantisekz/wine-dxvk
dnf update wine
dnf install wine-dxvk --allowerasing
Then fire up as many DirectX 9,10,11 apps as you can :) and post results
into this thread, especially if something got broken compared to normal
dxvk installation or if some d3d9 apps regressed. DXVK works for d3d10 and
d3d11, but note that I am also interested in apps using d3d9, because dxvk
package replaces wine's dxgi library that's then used even for stuff that
doesn't run through dxvk. Just make sure you don't have DXVK manually
installed already in your wine prefix.
Feel free to ping me on frantisekz@#fedora-qa if you need anything.
Thanks a lot!
I have build an ISO based on Fedora 30 workstation.
Installation was fine but after completion of gnome-initial-setup, I can't
see "Activities" in the top-left corner. When I try to relogin or restart
system prompt gnome-initial-setup again.
Was there any perticular change after fedora 30 release?
I haven't been able to install flatpaks on a clean installation of
Fedora 30 for a month now. This bug has the most complete and recent
The biggest issue is no one really knows exactly what the problem is
so there's a lot of finger pointing, most of it centered on libcurl
version. Supposedly the fix was backported to 7.64.0-8.fc30 but that
hasn't actually fixed the problem; today a user reports that upstream
master/7.65.2 did fix the problem. But what's the policy for rebasing
to that? Is the Fedora libcurl maintainer expected to figure out what
fixes it and backport it? The verbose output is not that helpful, and
libcurl folks are like, this is too complicated with too many layers,
try to reproduce it with libcurl directly - and I'm like, that's
Perhaps more likely is maybe asking this user to bisect and find out
the good commit that fixes the problem, and ask the Fedora libcurl
maintainer to backport that?
Anyway, if it's better for me to file a WG issue and we can discuss it
at Monday's meeting, I'll do that.
Fedora Workstation Working Group
2019-07-15 13:00 to 14:00 UTC
Everyone is invited to attend the meeting.
What should we talk about?
There are 29 issues for workstation-wg in Pagure. If working group members
could skim the list for one or two issues of interest to tag, we can see
if they're getting needed attention, or close them out if they're
Anyone not on the workgroup who wants to skim that list and propose an
item be tagged for meeting discussion, please mention it on the
So far one issue is tagged for discussion.
