Whoohoo, advogato is back, net result is 2 months without any blogging, I actually tried to install mod_virgule on veillard.com, but realized that the version in CVS depended on Apache v1. Here is a quick fast scan back on the last 60 days or so...
Had some vacations there after the stay in the US, tried the underwater housing for the Canon S50, I'm very happy with the results though the reefs in Jamaica were not in a very good shape. Very nice country overall !
The nice guys from the W3C system staff sent me back the corpse from rpmfind.net, apparentl they tried to make it digest a Windows XP boot floppy, that may explain the system premature death ;-) . I reshaped the system, removing the 13 and 17 Gigs drive, adding a couple of 120Gigs, new mobo, decent CPU, new RAM, and merging with some of the drives from fr.rpmfind.net . After a couple of erratic days chasing troubles due to bad memory, the system is back on-line at INRIA, and should provide stable services hopefully for a few more years. I'm knoocking on wood !
I have been asked to provide a reduced but simpler and hopefully more secure (at least compatible with SELinux) replacement to the fam library. I released gamin-0.0.1 which should be API and ABI compatible with fam, but does not work with a global system wise daemon. It's per-user (or per session) and seems good enough to get alteration updates in Nautilus. hadess already pointed out a few errors which are fixed in CVS and I hope to push 0.0.2 to Fedora Core soon. The code is in part based on the marmot code and is LGPL.
Very different ones, from the beach of Negril in Jamaica (my current background picture) and from the Dent de Crolles a mountain here, one week ago. Maybe this attraction for sunsets is just a proof of total lack of artistic sense...
