This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Up early, Eddie's press release
came out today; funky stuff. Owen says that he gets no
rendering issues in Nautilus, hmm - most odd. Started
re-building the latest everything from glib upwards.
- Nailed some heap corruption in the 1.4
bonobo-text-plain, how odd. Got acute build problems from
having the Gnome 2.0 snapshots installed; sigh, I can't help
feeling this is due to not having the libtool libraries
explicitely named by path in the link line. Decided to run
glib, pango, atk and gtk+ purely from the snapshots.
- Tried to run red-carpet; it hung, just stopped
dead, tried the public servers, same problem - argh.
Checked out the red carpet source, and set about trying to
build the thing. Got it built, and still everything is
broken, locking in
__os_yield_rpmdb (dbenv=0x0, usecs=1000000), sigh - so I
suppose I get to trawl inside the heap of junk (by all reports)
they call librpm. Grief, consulted itp, discovered the
command line rpm tool had given up as well. Did a
rebuilddb and bingo - as if by magic it works again.
Filed a bugzilla report at Red Hat at some length.
- Talked to Keith about various RCCC details /
materials for Monday. Continued questing for the evolution
race, added some automated non-GUI regression tests to
libbonoboui. Tried a fix in evolution as well.
- Mark committed a fix to make Union marshalling
faster and cleaner in ORBit2 - horay. Struggled with
evolution for a while; finally discovered my silly mistake
in there; doh.
- Fixed bonobo, and libbonoboui, did a
bonobo-1.0.19 release. Sent a patch off to Dan for a
connector issue. Bed.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
