Closer Look at Mageia 1

Filed under
Linux

The other night I decided that it would be much easier to pick out one of the other distributions I have on my machine than to try and build an older version of KDEPIM myself for Sabayon. So, with that in mind, I booted up Mageia 1 that night.

The most annoying thing about Mageia is the fonts. They aren't very pretty. I messed with them quite a bit and have some looking a little better. My perception is already adapting as well, but the fonts just aren't as pretty as in Sabayon.

Here a funny one: Kdict isn't really usable is it? It's shrunken down to about 2 inches with the text area less than an inch. And it appears it doesn't matter which theme I use.

While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
