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 - to battle ... re-hashed the
incremental OO patching mechanism, to fix the stable
- Updated evolution to the latest devel
snapshot, reply to mail doesn't work - hmm. Sent in
a stack trace of the gtkhtml crash.
- On with packaging, some joy - hit the
'OO.o hangs on startup' bug again - with a vengance.
Amazingly it does different things depending on what
you do; with SESSION_MANAGER unset ( of course ), doing:
./soffice.bin gives you the splash, and a clean exit.
Doing strace -f ./soffice.bin gives a typical quiescent
mainloop trace, running in gdb similarly. Amazingly -
running the version that works in gdb results in a seg
fault, making further work hard.
- Suspended the tinderbox builds, since
Federico's gpc work touches vcl headers which is too
painfully invasive for now. Read Mark's b-a-s patch,
- soffice.bin happily communicates with an
existing working OO, to get it to open files; hmm.
- J' home, went for a run, Natchos, J' worried
about her big meeting tomorrow. Bed early.
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,
