This was supposed to be an experiment in journalling software development, but it's turning out to be "link Bitching & Moaning". :-(
My new Linux box arrived yesterday... Guess what? It doesn't run Linux!
Compaq went and switched chipsets on me (440BX->815E?) and now I have a rilly rilly cool box; with no sound and no network. Strangely enough, though, it gets an SMP kernel from the RH Installer. I know the Coppermine is supposed to be fast, but come on! :-)
If anyone has gotten Red Hat 6.2 to behave on one of Compaq's new 733MHz Deskpro EN SFF models (with "Integrated Intel® PRO/100 VM Network Connection" and "Integrated Intel® Audio with Premium Internal Speaker") then, please, do give me a holler. Without networking I'm dead in the water and without sound (read: music) I can't code worth a damn.
Maybe there's something in Rawhide, or possibly Mandrake... *sigh*
Oh, and there's still no sign of my new G4MP. 2 x *sigh*
OTOH, The Apache Foundation's XML Parser Project is promising to release Xerces with Perl bindings RSN. They claim to be supporting XML Schemas and, if it actually works, it's bound to save me countless hours of sweating over the XML Schema Recommendation (the W3C couldn't write a readable spec if their life depended on it :-().
