I'm currently working on the 'Upscale images with better results' article.
This will be ready by the end of the week or so (I hope to mention it later
today at our meeting as well). The article features 3 open source tools, of
which 2 are pretty easy to build on Fedora. However, the third one,
Waifu2x, turned out to be a bit tricky to get it running. Not only it
requires Nvidia CUDA and depends on this vendor, it also takes time and
patience to sort things out before a reader will be able to actually
upscale something :) Take a look at this great how-to for Waifu2x on Centos
to get the impression: http://blog.jicoman.info/2015/09/waifu2x_centos
I suspect that the installation instructions are a bit too long for the
Nevertheless, I'm going to try CL-Waifu2x (
https://github.com/marcan/cl-waifu2x), a similar project that seems to be
easier to use. I'll let you know if I succeed with it.
Thanks for your attention and have a nice day everyone!
The Magazine was mentioned in episode 262 of the Linux Unplugged
podcast. Our timely article on ftransform turned out to be a solution
to a recent announcement from Dropbox about dropping support for many
Linux filesystems. Pretty cool!
I skipped pitch because I had already written this on my blog, so I just
pasted it in, tried to fix things and saved it straight as draft
So on topic of fixing things, I have my specific formatting style on my
website that is incompatible with Magazine, I fixed those things to line up
with the Magazine guidelines, however I wasn't sure about some parts of the
text... I would appreciate any feedback you could throw my way if you feel
like this could be a good article for Magazine.
I was also wondering whether the current title is okay:
Build your own RAID Array in Fedora using LVM.
Building RAID 5 on Fedora using LVM
Further I think that I will write a followup about recovering from failure
when I have some more time again, as described in this comment.
OH and I've no clue what to do about featured image, ideas would be
welcome... One idea from another contributor was an image of a Fedora
badger throwing disks at brtfs :D

Thanks for the post---lots of users found it very informative.
Unfortunately, GTG is broken in F28 and cannot be installed. Upstream
has been inactive for 3 years so the package should've been retired
before, but it slipped under my radar somehow.
I've retired it now, but one cannot retire packages from stable
branches, so it'll remain there until F28 goes EOL. I don't have n F27
system so I don't know if it can be installed on F27 either.
Users have already been running into the error when they try to install
gtg, so should anything be done about this? I've added a note to the bug
summary, so others that run into the issue can be made aware.
Sorry about this.

We're reviewing this for a possible publication next week. Thanks for
