My adventure with Linux began by chance in 2006, when intrigued by this unfamiliar world, i did search about it. Early, a screenshot captured me: that of 'Fedora core 6 Zod'. After some years, I am earning a small place directly in the Fedora Project.
I worked in the pharmaceutical industries as chemist, researcher, production operator, start-up of processing so I'm inclined to the testing and packaging of the scientific/chemical/mathematical open source software.

Work in progress:

- In my notebook I use CentOS 6, Fedora stable release.
- I have a personal blog to talk, inform, share my experiences with Fedora:
- I have translations in Italian Translation Team of Fedora Project
- Fedora Ambassador in my free time.
- Fedora Packager to contribute directly to the Project

My projects in Copr


I created a project in Copr that I need for providing updated RPMs for ProDy in EPEL6. For more info, read this post.

ProDy-EPEL6 repository on Copr.


I'm working to the RPM packaging of MOC player (Music On Consol player) released with license GPLv2. This software cannot be included in the official Fedora repositories; MOC depends by some RPMs located outside of official repositories (FFmpeg,libmad).

You can now get MOC by installing RPMFusion repositories and by executing the command

yum install moc
