I released new version of bdgui, a block device information GUI:
I'm writing a GUI which displays information on block device (found here).
It was developed for KDE v5, but after some changes the same source tree can also compile under KDE4!.
Today I started to develop a gui(Qt) for managing lxc containers Here
I stumbled over a problem that the program hangs after trying to start a container. After some research I discovered that QT is the culprit.
The problem is that lxc is forking the process twice and that messes up QT.
I solved this by forking the process before QApplication starts and listing to a pipe for start command. Inside the forked process the lxc container is started. Works fine so far.
It took me some hours to find this out
Started new opensource project:Avdms . I started a half year ago, but today I made it public available.
