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
An exciting morning of bug filing, and investigation. Finally set too
with the evolution snapshots
which avoided at least one already-fixed bug being filed again; nice.
Poked at the session bus problem, which (it seems) doesn't like root
connecting to it, causing grief for yast. Discovered my setting for "what
happens when the suspend button is pressed" was "Do nothing" - which explains
the absence of action on Fn-F4: with users like this who needs real bugs ?
Prodded the build service - Darix kindly helped me create a home
project, such that osc branch doesn't complain
no permission to
create project ..., which is great. Apparently the latest osc needs
--no-verify to build things, and flies more gracefully with
su-wrapper = sudo in ~/.oscrc.
Lunch, looong analyst call. Did a live-install to a USB key -
wow, it's a really nice installation workflow, albeit the write-rate to
the key is impossibly bad: 1Mb / second x 4+Gb == 67+ minutes, fun -
almost makes sense to write it to an on-spinning-disk ext3 image, then
blit it en-masse across.
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,
