UML

It's done. Now I have a fancy UML virtual machine, which is running on a 2.6 host (my laptop). It's currently empty, only holding a basic Debian woody system, but I'm planning to use it to test a lot of things which would require a separated machine otherwise.

I have also built a custom user-mode-linux Debian package, which is in fact the latest user-mode-linux package from Debian unstable plus the patch to fix the nasty "I'm tracing myself and I can't get out" bug. I'll keep using this package until a fixed package is released so, for now, it's being kept on hold. If you are interested, I can upload it somewhere and let you grab it so you can use it yourself.

Debian

Updated some translations for d-i and managed to bring it all back to 100% translated. Scott also replied my message asking him to add my RSS feed to Planet Debian so hopefully this is my very first post being featured on Planet Debian.

Now what's left is only to find out a way to send Scott a picture to be used as a thumbnail when a post of mine appears on Planet Debian. That's going to be quite difficult by itself since I have no scanner and no digital camera. Maybe it's time to start thinking about buying one. Hmm ...

New Advogato Features

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.
