GNOME-Volume-Manager works with Canon-A85
Preparing for presentation next week-end, I struggled with gnome-volume-manager. In the end I got it to work, now attaching Canon-A85 to PC, image-browser shows up. Solution was to add two lines to hotplug config file ( see bug report), furtheron user must be member of group camera and in dialog "Drives and Media Preferences" (Applications->Desktop Preferences->Removable Storage") the "Digital-Camera" entry should contain command /usr/bin/gnome-volume-manager-gthumb %h

KERRY STEPS UP PRAISE OF CHENEY'S DAUGHTER
At least on Debian/experimental Evolution-2.0.2-2 depends on libegroupwise6, not being in package list - installing fails. I sent package-maintainer a note; would be nice if he would publish missing package soon.
GNOME Volume Manager
Installed Debian packages of HAL, dbus, and gnome-volume-manager, but inserting USB-Stick no additional file-browser appeared with content - solution was to create an additional symbolic link (as root)
cd /etc/hal/device.d/ ; ln -s /usr/sbin/fstab-sync fstab-sync.hal
Now, attaching my USB stick, a file-browser appears, but attaching my Canon-A85 simply libgphoto2 is loaded, but nothing else :(
Device-Interfaces (eth0, ppp0, etc.)
Need to know INET-Address assigned to Network-Device, eg. eth0, ppp0, etc. Way it is solved on Linux differs completely from sysctl-operation schema described in R.Stevens book. The only sample code I could find was using ioctl-operation; which is not portable for Solaris or HPUX, I assume.
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?.
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.
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.
