I was chatting with someone the other day and he (she?) said that advogato was getting a bit too ``I-just-installed-debian''... well, like they say, ``If you can't beat them...''

XFree86

My Mandrake r128 bug bothered me enough to make me turn hardware acceleration off, when using the scroll bar the interface does freeze for a second then recovers. Yuck! I hope I can hold out until I can try to fix it. Anyway, I'm getting a new graphics card in Jan, so I should be alright then. I would try to recompile X, but I just don't have the time to look into it just now.

xaraya

Finally got around to taking a look at what these guys have been doing, nice stuff... Blocklayout was much friendlier then I expected. I'll be taking it for a bit of a swing in the next few days (weeks?), I'll post my findings here.

What interests me the most is the possibility to use the core and create xaraya distros/bundles. I haven't seen what type of installer is coming, but it would be nice to have it modular, so that individual module developers, can create a ``distro'' with just their module (and the modules it depends on), and have it plug in to the installation procedure, without having to hack the actual installation code.

Good Luck!
