I just got the Gateway SOLO 2550 laptop, which was dropped on the floor by a marketing guy. HDD is broken, keyboard bended, CD-ROM doesn't work and floppy is giving some trouble now and then.

So, I took the poor fella' and now thinking what to do with it. It has a lot of CPU power so there got to be a solution to put this broken baby in the works.

Managed to compile and boot the kernel from the floppy, so there is something to be done with it. I think I'll put it in my jeep as a MP3 player or a GPS station.

Pure fun!

Who says that Apache cannot be build with DSO support under SunOS5.6? I did, apparently. I am forced to take it back. I did managed to compile it. :)

I am so happy.

Heh.. SunOS is a wonderfull platform, if you don't mess with it.. I got an UltraSparcII with SunOS 5.6 to install and configure Apache+Tomcat. Well, the person who played with that machine before me, played a little bit more than I expected. Spent first part of the day just cleaning the machine up.. Whoa, was that a MESS!

Spent most of my day left installing JDK1.2.2, Apache and Tomcat onto a SunOS 5.6. Well, JDK needs a SunOS Patch to work, Tomcat source needs Ant and Tools (of course), and under SunOS you cant build DSO modules with Apache.. *sigh*

As I said, SunOS is a wonderfull platform..

Just played a little bit with Advogato's engine.. Successfully changed (and undo the changes) to a project not created by me.. I wonder if that is really smart?

OK, we all know that we are good people.. But someone can screw up the entire Advogato project pages.. *grin*

This Tomcat is really anoying me. Spent entire day trying to get servlets working. The so-called example configuration that comes with Tomcat is (to put it gently) not working. *sigh* JSP works fine, and servlets are working fine on port 8080, but.. With Apache - NOOOOOOOOOO..

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
