33 hours of coding, brainstorming, pizza, V and bad hacker jokes.
I'm kinda still exhausted from it all though.
Wheee! Just finished one of those spur of the moment hacks.
This one is a patch to make NVIDIA_kernel 0.9-6 devfs aware.
Project time is seriously low - mostly due to work and life stuff. I'm finding I have less time where I'm in the right frame of mind to disect code/systems.
Linux.conf.au was great. Got a chance to meet lots of people. And as per usual, I donned the volunteers shirt. (What's the good of things if you don't contribute somehow?)
Word from Raster about esound's orphaned status has resulted in me grabbing the cvs copies of it so I can fix up the little issues in it to improve my linux-sound coding, and to apply all the really nifty audio ideas I've had floating in my head now for the last 2 years.
Raster's demo of Evas seriously kicked ass. Thats going be a seriously nice graphics component to play with
Started hacking the touch-screen on the PTC-1194 last night. Have worked out that the touch-screen *is* generating hardware interrupts on IRQ12 during normal operation. I just need to disect the driver[s] sufficently so I can see whats really going on with IO to the touch- screen so I can get a bare-bones driver going.
Its been a long time, yes. But I tend to update my personal diary more frequently. Honest!
That aside, my little PCT-1194 arrived! I now have a worthy hack-toy! However, the CS89x0 driver isn't recognising the CS8900 ethernet in the keyboard module. Nor is APM recognising the battery. I need to fix both of these before I can seriously use linux on the road.
I contacted Telxon support about the digitizer, trying to get some information about how to program it... and they asked me for a business name. [in additon to the standard address & phone number]. Why do they assume that because they manufacture industrial products, that all their users will be corporate?
My plans are to build a nice 'pen linux' style system on the Telxon, and build the appropriate tasks & packages for debian. :)
Exploded my web page again... :/ This time via a reinstall of postgresql.
I really should remember that postgres upgrades are seriously bad karma.
Also slowly working out how this advogato thing works... :) It seems a nice idea, and nicely implemented.
Really should get down and finish some more stuff to add to my list...
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
