Thanks for the update.

I've tested Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-28-20180312.n.0.iso and updated the How To ... 01941aa. Most of Sugar works, as do the included activities. Issues were; - the Write activity flickers, due to AbiWord event handling flaw, Sugar Labs #4915, Fedora #1287835, AbiSource #13791, with Debian and Ubuntu carrying my patch, - the Paint activity starts but the mouse does not draw on the canvas, we have a fix committed but not yet released, and the fix is effective on Fedora 28, https://github.com/sugarlabs/paint-activity/commit/a8828f162606b6eed847b0444f156ac1c95b6866 https://github.com/sugarlabs/paint-activity/issues/29 - the Words activity fails to start, citing PyGObject Namespace WebKit not available, for 3.0, we have a fix committed but not yet released, and the fix is effective on Fedora 28, https://github.com/sugarlabs/words-activity/commit/ae8ccca439f34f99df6fb7a34313ab57af9e5e9e https://github.com/sugarlabs/words-activity/issues/12 - the Ruler activity fails to start, with a Cairo assertion and SIGABRT, https://github.com/sugarlabs/ruler/issues/4 - My Settings (control panel) - Network does not render, traceback says PyGObject Namespace NMClient not available, workaround is to hit escape, http://dev.laptop.org/~quozl/z/1evdqY.txt - My Settings - Software Update offers Memorize-52 to -53, Clock-19 to -20, and Pippy-66 to -71, so these are likely packaging lag, - for each activity, the activity toolbar description entry icon is not rendered, - after testing each activity once, there were about 3283 PyGIDeprecationWarning messages written to logs. Installing Fedora Workstation was very slow, and it performed poorly once installed, especially logging in, logging out, and using the GNOME desktop. I wasn't able to identify a cause for delays.

Not to worry, none of the activities in SoaS import csound. csound 6.10 did segmentation fault on Ubuntu 18.04 beta back in January with the Music Keyboard activity, but now works okay with both Measure and Music Keyboard. Neither activity is in SoaS. -- James Cameron http://quozl.netrek.org/ _______________________________________________ SoaS mailing list SoaS@lists.sugarlabs.org http://lists.sugarlabs.org/listinfo/soas
