Red Hat Linux

I posted my first bug to bugzilla on redhat.com today. It seems the new kernel (2.4.18-17.8.0) has an issue with my Dell Inspiron 8100. My unofficial conclusion is "the maestro3 module causes esd to peak my CPU for an indefinite amount of time". I have to be able to listen to music while I work!!

Rhythmbox

I can't wait for the release of 0.4 (coming very soon)... I haven't compile the CVS version but I was told it's made a lot of progress since 0.3 and becoming quite usable.

I'm trying to make my first inroads in the Open Source communitiy. I've established communication with the Rhythmbox team. I would like to be able to help more but I'm just learning the GNOME/GTK API and getting back into C.

sisob showed me how to produce RPMs for Rhythmbox, but unfortunately I run Redhat 8.0 and so does he... so he has the RPMs for Redhat 8 done before I can help.

Oh well ... I find another way to contribute. I can test and learn how to submit bug reports. Once I learn the GNOME/GTK API better I might be able to offer patches also.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
