My first debian install
For the first time in my life, I've installed a debian this night.
It's a 3.0. I've installed it on my old vaio PCG-F190 laptop.
Everything went smoothly. I even got X and the network work
almost out of the box. Okay, I still have to get used to the
well known apt-xxx and dpkg stuffs but i already love the baby.
I've been playing with GNU/Linux for 6 years now but I've only installed slack, RH and Mdk... now Debian. Which one
will I like most ?
I've fixed numerous stability bugs in MlView
week. Many thanks go to the power of the valgrind tool and to DV
. I will make a new release in the coming days.
After this release I must force myself to download the
sources of gnome2 on my brand new debian system, compile it,
admire it and start the porting of (damn even apm works!!)
MlView to gnome2. That will take a lot of work since I have
to totally rewrite (at least) the MlViewTreeEditor and MlViewNodeEditor widgets which are heavily based on the GTKCTree and GTKCList widgets ... Okay, these widgets are
MVC pattern compliant but I have to rewrite the models and the controllers still.
