Well this was a non-productive weekend. Well, at least from
the opensource point of view :-)
My fiance is back from visiting her mother, so I'll be
slowing down things a little bit here. Howver, she may be
spending some time here at Conectiva (depends on official
aproval), so I'm crossing my fingers I'll be able to do some
work at nights still.
Anyway, I should go back a little to may pet projects,
namely yafingerd and squid_mysqldb.There is too much
spiderweb on it, and I need to clean them. Anyway, yafingerd
is almost ready, and should not be sitting idlely around,
and an orphan.
UML is getting better and better. Most of the problems are
disapearing, and a few patches, for me and others, for
improving network performance are trying to find its way
into the main tree.
RPM development is a little slow right now. Most of it is
happening on 4.0, mainly backports from 4.1
As a side note, the 2.95 tree of gcc is a little wierd.
Looks some some ABI changes happened, which I find
confusing, once it was not supposed to happen. I'm keeping
an eye on it so see if those were real changes or just some
glibc 2.2 is getting better and better.
Oh, btw, Tucows/Linuxberg made a
review about Conectiva Linux 6.0. Take a look at it.
All in all, life is good right now :-)
I received a visit from a former employer, who is thinking
on changing his systems to Conectiva Linux. He asked me to
show him why it would be a good idea :-) Oh well, 2 minutes
to convince him, 53 to tour him around Conectiva :-) Also,
me and my fiance went to dinner with him latter at night ...
Not bad for a day at work ...
