No rest for the wicked
I am also on the orga team for our faculty party "FMI Party 04" and I really have to invest more time on helping there this week.
So after a little talk with seb128 I found out that there is a ubuntu development channel/release which is called hoary. So I changed my apt.sources (through synaptic - it really evolved since the frist time I used it some time ago) to get hoary packages and I have now firefox 1.0 and a very up-to-date system. I still have to kernel crash with acpi enabled but I think I can fix this with a custom kernel. So I think I give ubuntu another chance! One thing left of course is graphical boot but I willing to help out here so I am going to talk to Jeff about it. So it's 2:19 now and I really should go to bed - I kinda drunk to much on our pub-tour today.
P.S.: Logging into gnome takes ages now but everything else is as fast as before .. I already installed the fam replacment so I have no idea whats the problem here.
I first installed Fedora Core 1 test X on my computer and then always just upgraded to FC1, FC2-test, FC2, FC3-test and finally to FC3. I also installed some self-compiled packages. So yesterday I decided that now the mess I created is big enough to re-install linux and downloaded NLD 9:
The installation was easy and it took me about 30 mins to get into GNOME (sad enough only 2.6) the frist time. I was hoping that I could use red-carpet for package managment and that there are some channels out there for all the cool mono stuff like tomboy, beagle and f-spot. But I got really furstrated:
So with the start of University I plan to start heavy hacking again. First will be some http module issues and then of course the fun project Epittance.
I commited the received headers callback stuff to cvs and with the help/testing of Sebastien I managed to get it fully working again yesterday! So everybody check out gnome-vfs head (which is still not branched - we are still in bug-killing mode) and enjoy stream information :)
So after most of my GnomeVFS bugs are fixed I wanna spent some more time hacking on Epittance. Now that the basic features are kinda working we need to do some code cleanup :)
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.
