Looked through Firefox and Thunderbird extensions and have a setup I like now...
Did some work at the Jubilee Linux lab (5 old slow computers each with their own version of Fedora - 4 at the moment because one of the power supplies has died...)
Worked quite a bit on ooo-build stuff the last two days.
Well I've been trying to build OOo 680 (2.x series) using ooo-build, which doesn't quite work yet.
from Mr Rumsfeld:
I didn't have a laptop at OOoCon 2004
and didn't manage to write anything in detail then, and have been busy since, so this is my executive summary...
Found this really helpful article describing how to mix sounds automatically with ALSA
(linked from a review of Fedora Core 2
) and so now mpd
can play in the background and other programs can still make sounds ..
Beware! I apt-get dist-upgraded my system to the latest fedora development rpms, and part of that upgraded dev to udev. All very nice. Except I couldn't open a terminal. So I rebooted. And then it wouldn't even boot up properly because it couldn't allocate a console. So I had to use a rescue CD to create the /dev/console node, then it was fine.
God answers prayer. Going to OOoCon 2004
despite it initially seeming unlikely.
