I've noticed some corruption in my "notes" section, and
others in the projects section, so people may want to watch
for other weirdness like that...
Looked at linuxconf in woody and potato and didn't see
anything dealing with /e/n/i, so maybe I wasn't reinventing
the wheel. Send some mail off to the maintainer to find out
Built updated boot disks, fought with them to boot on the
Athlon, and when successful, found out another option was
in the kernel, which is already tight on space. Fun fun
Didn't get the installer source put online (with the fun
on www) as I was intending, so it is up for tomorrow
It seems 2.2.15pre17 is just not liking the hardware of
www. Processes segfault randomly, the network card goes off
into one second 300ms away, the next .1, on a one hop all
100Mb FDX connection. Something is weird. I am beginning
to suspect the RAM, which may not be ECC. It was running
fine for awhile after a reboot, but it didn't last long
enough for me to drive home :(.
got a reply from mkp, and he's busy busy on xfs, but it
seems the gnome BTS doesn't send him e-mail on bugs, so he's
never seen the patches for GDM. Subscribed to the gdm list,
and will be resending them if the selected portions haven't
been heavily rewritten.
Finished off the work box of penguin mints. Only one
spare left, so out goes another order for more...
And yah, this diary entry is in the wrong day, because it
was a lonnnng day.
