Hmm.
Some time between my first and second post, but hey - i'm busy!

Hacked on the rtl8139too driver a bit, and got it to work with cardbus. I need to submit a tiny patch to the pcmcia-cs people, so i don't have to change stuff next time i want to use it ;)

Also started more work on the tiny-debian stuff - somebody muttered that i'm re-inventing the wheel by building 'another distribution for ARM based handhelds like the IPAQ'. I disagree totally. There is no distribution for handhelds that's upgradable, and that offers real package management, and a balanced list of applications.
Ah well, i think it's useful, and it's fun to work on.

Did some work on the 'snort' .deb today. It was ridden with bugs (some of which i introduced myself, by a somewhat optimistic new upload ;) ) - dialup users had some problem with the package not really working at all, wich is bad. Also closed some ancient bugs that weren't even present anymore.
Started hacking on Debian-for-yopy (probably just 'yopy-linux', based on Debian ;) ).
I want a tiny dpkg, tiny apt, and some wrappers that do stuff like installing packages, and keeping the cache directories clean.

New Advogato Features

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
