Open Clip Art Library

I volunteered to do the OCAL release for October 1st. It's the 10th... I need to get it finished. There's over 8000 SVG's in the library as of this release. I've been really hammering at getting it cleaned up and better organized. There were 550 unsorted images, but I've hammered that down to 150. I've also added some more categories and cleaned up a *lot* of the keywords. Still a ton of work left to do, but I think I'm going to wrap things up for this month and leave the rest for the future.


Ugh... What a pain it's been trying to get knoppmyth installed. I'd initially tried knoppmyth, which worked fine as a livecd, but as a regular distro I wasn't that impressed. Maybe that's just because I don't use debian much so my apt-fu is not so strong. I found that the default kernel included with knoppmyth doesn't support my sound card, which is possibly why mythtv is behaving erratically with its recordings. However, upgrading the kernel turned into a real headache...

Anyway, finally I gave up and decided to start again from scratch, this time with gentoo, which I'm **much** more familiar with. So far it's been going great. I got mythtv emerged a few hours ago, but ran into some trouble installing ivtv so I'll need to look into that a bit more (the ivtv guys apparently decided to rearrange their website, and gentoo can't pull the tarballs).
