Fedora 18 Rasberry PI Remix

fedoraIf anyone cares, i have mirrored the, only badly reachable, file. You can download it here if you need Fedora on your tiny Raspberry Pi. It seems to run very well, Jan from RedHat already installed and tested it 😉

There is also a Torrent available, don’t know how good its seeded but you can give it a try.

BlueTinted Screen on discrete graphics card

Dark-Blue-Tinted-GlassI got news about my problem with the blue tinted screen on graphic card change. I found, finally, a solution on the official Apple forums. It looks like it was a problem with different color schemes on both cards. The forum thread shows a short but working solution for this annoying problem. Some updates fixed it, but only for some time. The problem always came back some days after the update fixed it. Don’t ask me how this is possible…


1. With no other programs open (after a fresh reboot is probably best), calibrate your monitor as you like it  under System Prefs -> Display -> Color
2. Turn off auto-graphics switching under System Prefs -> Energy Saver
3. Reboot
4. Navigate to /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays and delete any profile that isn’t your newly calibrated display profile. (I deleted all profiles except the calibrated one)
5. Reboot
6. Turn on auto-graphics switching under System Prefs – Energy Saver
7. Reboot

E voilà this solved my problem! After long nights and digging around in OS X internals, it could be so easy…

10.8.3 Build 12D78 is the chosen one!

theendNot far from now, Build 12D78 is marked as final from apple and available at the Apple AppStore Update site! Wow, what a beta race build… i hope this Update is absolut flawless or i’m going out and buy a Windows 8 PC *brrrr* no i’ll never would do such horrible things, sorry for that 😉

I hope everybody out there enjoys the release and i also hope that it is a “everything is cool” release for all of us! Let me know how it goes on your Mac’s!

Edit: The “Blue Tined” bug is back… great, NOT!
