Developer's image is ready (For the first tests, anyway...)


The Sugar developer's image is ready now. It has the full Gnome desktop, Sugar, Eric3 and Inkscape, as well as the normal development toolchain (gcc, svn, git, bzr, cvs, etceteras). We'll have to figure out how to make it available (it's 3GB). Anyway, it should allow a Linux or Win32 user to ...

Have to switch accounting packages (GNUCash just fell down on reporting...)


Had our friend over to look at the books tonight. Just about every operation we attempted in GNUCash (mostly reports, exports, etceteras) failed, either just did nothing or produced reports with $0.00 everywhere. We wound up having to give her screenshots to work with! Given that Ledger SMB is still a work-in-process I'm ...

Sugar is finally building (As is Inkscape...)


Finally finished building the dependencies for Sugar. XULRunner took basically forever! Anyway, I'm now running sugar-jhbuild and have the Inkscape build running as well. I've also spent the morning reading up on the Develop and EToys activities. Those are both rather involved activities that aim to allow children to create and manipulate activities ...

Finally done the base OS install (Egads that took forever...)


I've just finished defragmenting the installed OS in the VMWare image and I'm now cloning the image. Next up is booting into the new kernel and then actually building Sugar. Yay! I want to back up the image at this point because it's taken a full week to get built and it ...

Silly script forgot to check for a directory... (xorg recompile fails and drags down the whole show)


The xorg rebuild last night failed shortly after we went to bed. Was missing a directory under /var for the xkb files. Result is that the machine did not work overnight. It also showed 100% memory usage when I got up, looks like a possible leak? Annoying anyway.

Have wasted much of the day trying ...

Probably need to switch blog software (CoreBlog1 causing too much annoyance to hosts...)


Tim reminded me today that CoreBlog1 (i.e. this blog) is becoming a bit of a pain for the admins. Mostly because of the huge volumes of comment spam blowing out the zodb file-size. So, it seems that I'll have to find a new bit of blogging software.

What I need:
* ability to import ...
