11 Sep 2000 Stab   » (Master)

Ah well, finally moved into the new flat in London. Threw an absolutely awesome housewarming party on Saturday, and then spent all of Sunday playing rollerhockey, so there wasn't a lot of software work done :- ) Took a spill and jarred my recently dislocated wrist again, doh!

Did manage to sneak in some updates to some OpenBSD ports, and edging closer to towards committing JadeTeX, dvipdfm, & DocBook-4.1. Will do that as soon as the TeTeX patches go in to increase its default capacities.

OpenBSD should have the basis for a hardcopy documentation project with those in place, if the people behind the recent thread on misc@ have their way.

Does _anyone_ have any idea why the combination of C++/libtool/shared libraries might be horribly broken on OpenBSD? Sablotron uses this combination which works fine on FreeBSD/Linux, but it dies with a 'Memory Fault' (???) on Open ... need to recompile my kernel with debugging symbols to start figuring it out I guess. The old Jade port had similar problems - the static libraries work fine, but the shared ones just dont get loaded.
