I saw the installer go into the X based GUI for the first time today. It was beautiful. Still got bugs, but hey, that was pretty.

Either the RAM on fry (my AXi at work) or its CPU is going bad. I booted it with diag-switch? true, and the ram claims to pass, in addition to the cpu, but I was getting compile time errors that I don't get on the Ultra 10. Specifically, on glibc and gcc, with it stopping on "Internal bus errors" in a different place each time. Good thing I've got a spare AXi at home. I'm going to swap out the CPU and see if it becomes happier. Building things on the U10 takes too long, even with a gb of ram. In case you were wondering, thats whats delaying Build 0.3 now. I'm going to kick off a gcc3.1 build attempt to see if it builds on the U10. I hope it does.

Laptops back. Means I can actually do work from home again. In theory.
