Debian Experimental

Installing GNOME-2.8 from Debian-Experimental branch **shiver** (gnome-journal explaines) - simply having problems with evolution as not all dependencies can be resolved, eg. depends on libedataserver-1.0.2, but branch contains only release 1.0.1.?, now installing evolution from source. By the way - Did you know GNOME Journal?.

Common-sense, http://planet.gnome-de.org shows overall picture now, including english messages by default; allways felt german-only messages show only one side of the story. Now page shows reasonable amount of developers and translaters related to Germany and working for GNOME.

At weekend I set up preliminary webpage for GUADEC 2005 in Stuttgart/Germany. For final webpages specific server-settings have been setup by GNOME-admins, responding immediatly to requests. Surprisingly, usage of XSLT for webpage-build environment has not been encouraged. Later, when Chrisime is back from journey, I will support him maintaining final GUADEC webpages.

Gerfried Fuchs created cool hackergotchie for me, I really love it. If you wonder about the hat, the photo has been taken at journey through Peru some years ago; walking through deserts and hiking mountains; the hat was my best friend protecting me against (very) strong peruvian sun.

OpenOffice conference took place in Berlin, met a number of people from GNOME community there, too. I had a very interesting chat with President of Apache Software Foundation in the evening.

A lot happened since March, e.g. I became father end of August; her name is Yllari (say: Ijari) (inka: sunrise). And new friends of Yllari approached. This weekend we did our first trip after birth driving to baltic sea.

This week switched to Fedora-Core-1, looks good and seeems faster, more uptodate Gnome-desktop than used from Redhat9.0. The red hat ist still used in panel for main-menu button ;) Still having the problem with Realplayer8, due to New-Posix-Thread-Lib merged down from kernel2.6 into redhat-kernel2.4. Hopefully real.com will offer new player for kernel2.6 soon. If there is any free realplayer, please tell me.

Currently I am working for GIOR tool, graphical viewer/editor for ORBit/GNOME object references; update should be released soon.

Think these acronyms should go to gnome-doc project:
i18n == "internationalization" ("i" + 18 letters + "n")
L10n == "localization" ("L" + 10 letters + "n"; upper case L is used to distinguish it from the numeral 1 (one))
a11y == "accessibility" ("a" + 11 letters + "y")

Just tried to run RealPlayer8 (realplay) on Redhat9 but it segfaults immediately. Solution: In shell set "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.7" before calling "realplay", or execute this script:

--------- realplay.sh ---------------
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.7
exec /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/realplay

Sitting in Munich, in Bar of Annahotel, connected to WLAN. Having spent lots of months in Munich now, working for customer. Beside normal work I try to find time for ORBit beginners docs at hhtp://www.gnome.org/projects/ORBit2, recent works might be checked in in near future. Both, Munich and Berlin, are cool cities.
