This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
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. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Prodded mail, gdb crashed; oh dear - I installed a new
python to make glib build (via gobject-introspection); now gdb
won't run (why does that link to python ?); a non-beautiful outcome:
gdb: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_FromEncodedObject
Interviewed another candidate; installed 11.3 to try to
get a working development environment. Still failed to run gdb,
but could at least use the system python for gobject-introspection.
Tried to re-build enough of the stack for the new system libraries
to work: oh dear - gtk+ (gtk-2-22) doesn't build: guess what is to
blame ? gobject-introspection (g-ir-scanner missing some
--strip-prefix mode). Gave up and tried to install the nice GNOME:Factory
repositories from OpenSUSE. Lunch.
Back to LXF column contemplation. Discovered that GNOME:Factory
is horked and won't install without griping intensely and widely about
some random video related dependency. Colin kindly pointed me at his
--disable-introspection configure flag for gtk+.
Got the Evolution:snapshots
repository to work eventually, and read mail; urk.
Thrilled to get to the point that the noise on the systemd
list is annoying enough to create a filter to get it out of my inbox.
fifty+ messages and several patches in a day is a good place to be:
Dinner, prodded mail until late.
