I’m happy — today I took the first steps towards being able to use the Fuji Finepix digital camera as a USB webcam (mentioned in a previous post). Today I started reading about how to hack on the Linux kernel.
(There is nothing like a cup of tea and some Audioslave to get you through the working weekend.)
Friday night started well, with drinks at the Trader Bar. It was intended to be the February Opensource Meetup, but was far too noisy to have any real conversation (I will try harder next month to find an appropriate venue, I think).
Finally took the plunge — I’ve blown away my SUSE install and put Yoper on in it’s place! “How excitement!”
The installer was interesting, in a good way — no packages to select (or dselect, for those of a Debian persuasion), not even any updates whilst the packages were being installed, just a simple black screen with the golden advice, “Please be patient”.
I’ve been running to catch up ever since we got back from Christmas/NY holidays.
It’s just been completely overwhelming — from two weeks of lazing around the campfire to two weeks of daily deadlines and impatient clients.
I just found, by accident, that I’m the second highest Google search for “chronofiles”. (The Buckminster Fuller Institute is first, by the way.)
sniff I’m so proud.
Of course, a Google search for “chronofile”, singular, will not feature the glennji chronofiles at all.
Today wasn’t an entirely productive day, but it wasn’t too bad — I did manage to burn the Yoper installation CD.
My idea is as follows: Yoper is a good, young distribution, looking for contributors; Yoper doesn’t have good Gnome support yet; I’m more than a little Gnome-mad; I can program; I can help integrate Gnome into Yoper!
