At the LSM since yesterday. Gave a talk on the work toward unifying packages formats (or is there a life after RPM and DEB ? Answer should be yes it seems :-).

Jacques Gelinas is here too, we discussed a lot at the restaurant yesterday evening, he's a really enjoyable person (food and wine were good too !), this is great to meet people directly.

I was so tired that I woke up after 11am today, I missed the morning session and RMS talk, oh well...

Worked on cleaning up the FTP problems (still) in libxml, seems better now. I also fighted for months wondering why APM was not working anymore on my laptop since I upgraded to RedHat-6.2 . After trying all the tweaks I could think of including upgrading the Dell Latitude BIOS, I found a perfect solution: remove the apmd package ! The kernel handles APM very well. The only usefulness of the user level daemon was to crash the machine <grin/>. At least this is solved now :-)
