So FUDCon is over this year and it was great. Finally getting to meet people and discuss the workings of some of the projects Fedora is involved with. Rob Escriva and I left Thursday morning after breakfast and got into Toronto a little before 4pm.
The first night we met up with Steven Parrish and [...]

So, another day with GNOME on the laptop. First, I’ll go over the things brought up in the comments of yesterday’s post. I also replied in the comments to most, but I know going to posts to read comments is something I do rarely, so I’ll make it convenient for others to get the discussion.
To [...]

After using GNOME for a little while, I discovered some things that are not how I am used to things working that would probably take a while to get used to if I were to move to GNOME full time (I doubt it though, KWin, KRunner, and general application integration is just too nice in [...]

Today, I installed an instance of Fedora 12 Beta GNOME Spin onto the partition that used to be occupied by the Windows 7 Beta I installed in March or so and BSODs on boot. Dual booting Fedora/Fedora is an interesting prospect and I found some interesting corner cases in Anaconda and dealing with getting the [...]

Inkscape likes to put weird namespaced attributes and such around the code basically duplicating whatever the standard attributes are. So the [...]

So it’s the day before CPOSC starts this year. I still have 6 hours of Greyhound travel ahead of me later today and I’m currently waiting on the dryers to finish up so that I can finish packing clothes for the weekend. Todd Zullinger and Jon Stanley will be there this year and there are [...]

So, I’ll be going to CPOSC 2009 this year (I was at 2008’s). I was wondering if any other Fedorans will be there. I know Yaakov Nemoy and Jon Stanley were there and I may have missed someone.

Recently, I compiled a list of apps from kde-apps.org that I thought would be useful in Fedora. In addition, I recently edited the wiki to move the table of requested packages to a page of its own. Ryan Rix is now taking that list and putting it into that table. If anyone sees any applications [...]

I know a while ago I posted that I wouldn’t get a netbook, but woot prices are hard to beat. I’m actually quite pleased with it. The keyboard could still use a few extra keys (right control is sorely missed with the new setup I’m attempting). Only issues I’ve run up against are the 4GB [...]
