What a day. Yesterday after fixing some more packets I realized that binutils that I was using are old. Then curl started tu drop cores ... do not ask me why. Then I deleted my data for the proseminar that I had to hold today. Thenk god I could move it to the next week.

Now axpoint (the program I use to create the transparencies) is not working because perl has some problem. I can not fix it now because here at my university I can only use wlan but my wlan card is currently freezing my system. I wanted to recompile my kernel but make menuconfig says that sed is dropping core. God what is going on ... does the whole world hate me ?

I did something VERY bad ... that is it :-(

Now I have to wait for the people that will come to the seminar to tell them that they can go home.

Then I will head towords my home too... I hope my day will not continue so negatively ....

I post my first diary entry today. It will hopefully not be the last one. One thing that I would appreciate in the diary is that others can comment your diary entry's.

Today was my lucky day I finally found a bug that prevented gcc 3.2.1 to compile under dietlibc. Now I am one step closer to the dietlibc target in RockLinux.

It was not an error in dietlibc at the beginning but a stupid gnu extination to getcwd command. gcc3 is using this command in fixincl helper program. That the standard inconformance of glibc allowed the program to run correctly, but under dietlibc it was not working. Now I created a patch and sent it to the rock mailinglist. We will see what others will say. But as I know them Clifford will simply apply it and that is it ;-)

Now I should finally write the proseminar talk. I really do not know how. But I should make it till tomorrow evening. But I would prefere to fix md5 packet in the dietlibc target now. I want to finish that target. I started it so I have to finish. The only problem is that fixing all the problems in this are very difficult because they are not really straight forward and I have to learn the interna of the packets I fix and that consumes tons of time.

Ok off to hacking ;-)

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.
