New bzr-fanNafallo_IM

Wed, 25 Jan 2006 15:01:49 GMT

I just converted my network-manager and dhcdbd packages to use bzr instead of just applying patches. Damn it's a nice system! I now have those files and directories:

\ exported from dhcdbd-1.10-package, from here I run dpkg-buildpackage.
\ normal packaging files for debian.
\ dbus patch for dbus 0.60.
\ debian/ added :-).
\ downloaded tarball.
\ this is a merge from all the other branches.
\ branched unpackaged tarball.

\ same for those :-).

I'll sftp-push those to as soon as I get home.

Finally! Uraeus wrote a tutor on how to get your special keys working again. I just wrote the section for my Targa Visionary 811:

// Targa

// Targa Visionary 811
partial alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "visionary" {
key { [ XF86AudioPrev ] };
key { [ XF86AudioNext ] };
key { [ XF86AudioPlay, XF86AudioPause ] };
key { [ XF86AudioStop ] };
key { [ XF86AudioLowerVolume ] };
key { [ XF86AudioRaiseVolume ] };
key { [ XF86WWW ] };
key { [ XF86Search ] };
key { [ XF86Mail ] };
key { [ XF86AudioMedia ] };

Will file this as a wishlist-bug upstream ASAP...

UPDATE: Bug filed as #5722

ToysRednex - Cotton-Eye Joe

Tue, 24 Jan 2006 21:54:28 GMT

Yesterday evening I was out browsing and found myself looking for a new mobile.

My Siemens MC60 I had for a year now recently had it's "7"-key stopped working. I got it back from repair yesterday and just felt it was to slow for my needs. Latest MidpSSH didn't work and it seems it was just messed up. So I found a Nokia 6060 for a reasonable price on I then logged in to my Internet-bank and found out I had enough money on my spare-account to actually buy it. That OR a Seagate 300G PATA100...

I desperately need a new disk, but I hate to have a mobile with camera :-P. In the end I choose the mobile and will buy some DVD-R and CD-R to make my 200G in the server last a bit longer ;-).

SpamCurrent 93 - Lucifer over London

Sorry for the spam. Seems drivel thought I updated my old entries for no apparent reason what so ever! Btw, could an someone add my hackergotchi to Planet Ubuntu?

UPDATE: it wasn't drivels fault it seems. the articles are not updated. Most be the planet that smoked crack then :-P.

About encoding music...Pantera - Domination

Fri, 20 Jan 2006 13:11:58 GMT

hub tells us to encode in ogg instead of mp3. While this is working, do not forget flac! :-)

Yay!Pantera - Fucking Hostile

Finally have something worth looking at. I'll have to take pictures of the machines and put on there, but after that the mainsite and machinepages are done! Soon I can start dedicating some work on my personal homepage. I'll just have to figure out what to write there before I can type it in and start playing with layout. Then there is Jenny's (gothcat's) page. She don't know how the language works yet, so I'll probably end up teaching her either HTML or XHTML first. When she's done the fun begins with CSS ;-). Damn me for only using XHTML 1.1 those days. She would probably be happier with HTML4 Transitional or something ;-).

While we take pictures I should get jenny to take a picture of me so that I finally can get a hackergotchi. Hopefully this can be done sometime this week so that I can mail jdub soonish. Ideally before dapper opens on ~Tuesday :-P.

BTW, for all those that sent comments on my last blog. I've found a new, dark and dry place for my dark chocolate. Thanks!

The Fridge!

Mon, 10 Oct 2005 22:25:03 GMT

Guess what I found in the fridge? Half a bar of a Lindt 99% cacoa dark chocolate!! Yay!

Am I that transparent?

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to good manners and elegance.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage something you've always wanted... though you haven't really thought about it.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

Fun stuff...Deadlock - Earth, Revolt

Thu, 15 Sep 2005 15:43:10 GMT

I found the "Visited Countries" project on Tollef's blog and had to give it a try :-). So here it is:


Other fun stuff should involve that I'm a MOTU and a member since some months or so ;-). That in turn let me fix the icons for rbscrobbler, which in turn let me to discover "Yay! Rock on!" is all I can say :-). As a member I also have another e-mailaddress now: :-). Also as admin for the Swedish LoCo-Team I have my first role-address: :-). Kudos to Canonical for giving us a dedicated server to extend our team on :-). Also the ubuntu wiki now has some information about me :-).

Oh well, I feel like I want to hack on Dapper Drake, and Breezy Badger isn't even out of the door yet ;-).

Unusual thoughtGod Forbid - Chains of Humanity

Thu, 15 Sep 2005 15:10:44 GMT

I'm sitting here, hoping for my Internet to crash and burn. Not the usual things to wish for, but then something rather unusual happened yesterday...

I woke up in the afternoon as usual (I need to turn my sleeping hours more towards nights again) and got a letter from the postal services. They wanted me to pick up a package from my ISP at my local foodstore. Since I had not ordered everything I called customer services and asked exactly what they sent me. It's a new modem, they said, which had me ask why they sent me a new modem when I've had one ticking without problems for the last three-four years. I wasn't happy at all about the answer, that they wanted all their customers to use their modems. We hang up and paranoid as I am my first thought was they was angry at me for securing my modem with password and restricted the internal services it has ;-). After a while I tried to reach technical support. Their PBX told me they where busy and hanged up at me 10 times or so, which made me send them an e-mail. I tried to call them again after about half an hour, and after sitting in the call-queue for 20 minutes I had a talk to a nice young man that told me I should have got info about a change they made on my account. I hadn't, so he told me they migrated my 512/512Kbit connection to 24/1Mbit and that was the reason they sent me the modem. I was rather happy to here this but tried to keep my calm to ask all questions that popped up. PPPoE should not be needed anymore (yay!), I'll get 5 dynamic IPs or could choose to order a static one for 3.219 € / month, ports will be forced shut: 137-139, 445 and most important port 25 will not allow outgoing connections. I'll goes I will need to use their relay server now for SMTP :-(. And all this migration should of course be free of charge for me. Sounds like I will actually pay the same amount of money / month to: ~32 €. After that call I went to pick up the package ;-).

Now that I figured I'll have 24Mbit incoming soon, the next thought hit me. The NIC for my Internet connection in ogre (router/server/firewall/trafficshaper/whatever) is an old 3Com 3c5x9 10Mbit ISA. That means I could use max 5.5Mbit of the new 24Mbit :-P. Unfortunally I'm using all four PCI slots on the motherboard for my two controller-cards, the LAN NIC and my graphics card. After spending the night figuring out what to do about all this, and almost decided to buy one of those Linksys WRT54G-things, I went through my pile-of-old-and-worthless-computer-spare-parts. And guess what! There where the GeForce2 MX200+TV/64MB AGP-card and the fairly new Netgear FA311 NIC that I thought I sold several months ago. I guess my old and trusted ATI 3D Rage II has to leave his PCI-slot for the third NIC ;-).

Well now... Dear ISP, could you please make my Internet crash so that I can start rebuilding my server? :-)

MONEY!!! :-DUtopia Banished - Voice of Disharmony

Mon, 18 Jul 2005 13:18:29 GMT

YAY!!! I got money today :-). Now I really need clothes so that I can go to the bank and change some of it to NOK. Shower first ofcourse.

smartmontoolsUtopia Banished - The Darkness We Burn

Mon, 18 Jul 2005 13:13:24 GMT

Wow! I actually did something today. I built smartmontools for both breezy and hoary with a patch from Debian BTS to use SG_IO. I've also added a lot of subscriptions for new jobs to be dumped to my mail-address. Hopefully I can get a job soonish. I will need to print out an pdf, fill it with text and send it to one of the authorities to get money if I don't get a job. Hopefully Tollef owns a printer I can use ;-). Otherwise I need to take the train home to my parents and hotplug their printer again. Irritating! Well, hopefully I can get clothes on me today and go shopping. I've been naked for like three days in a row now :-P. Anyway. I did another good thing yesterday. I bought my first album on magnatune. Really slick process. My server could use wget -b to fetch the files without much trouble :-). So now I actually own Utopia Banished's album and have it as ogg and flac :-). I'll probably buy magnatunes classical compilation today. Anyway, this was a _VERY_ smooth experience. I highly recommend

headphones@darkelfArch Enemy - Mechanic God Creation

Sun, 17 Jul 2005 15:07:09 GMT

My KOSS "the plug" headphones are really only missing one feature. Volume control on the cable.

Or maybe my alsa module shouldn't make the headphone volume the master volume? My volume hotkeys on darkelf controls the master anyway... Whichever, it's bloody annoying ;-).

... in search for a sleep pattern.

Tue, 14 Jun 2005 06:50:48 GMT

Yesterday I went to sleep at 8 or 9 in the morning. I woke up approx 1700. I spent some time doing the regular stuff: checking e-mail, mirrorlogs, bandwidth use and so on. I then started blam, with the ugly workaround blam --sync currently needed to start at all on my ubuntu breezy amd64 laptop, and refreshed all feeds, causing the bug in gtk-sharp to show up again :-P. Stubborn as I can be when I'm still half-awake I restarted the program from a terminal and tried again; Didn't die this ;-). I started digging throw about 300 messages (yes, I haven't read all feeds since I installed it yet).

During this time my brain had figured out that I needed a sleeping pattern and suddently presented me with a plan to end this insane way of living I gained for not having any times to keep, resulting in my lack of action in everything I would like/have to do to get things rolling again. I need to go beg for money from the swedish authorities, try to get a job, do more security work in ubuntu while learn programming and packaging etc, etc, etc...

Anyway. I went to sleep @ 3 (my irc-screen says). Couldn't sleep, so probably I just went to bed, fetched my laptop, and continued to read blogs :-P. My great plan was all set anyway. My alarm clock and my mobile rang @ 7. I took 3x100mg coffeinepills carefully placed near my bed and swallowed down with the glass of water also placed there. I then set the alarm to 9 on both devices and went to sleep again. The damn coffeinepills woke me up again after half an hour instead of the two hours I had planned for. So now I'm out of bed, planning to take a shower directly after posting this my first blogentry from this ancient version of drivel currently in ubuntu :-). I plan to go to the authorities to beg for money, the animalshop to buy more food for my rabbit Storm, the post to be able to send away the SB Live! I've sold on an online auction and hopefully after that there is still time left to merge the ubuntu changes with the version of drivel in debian and post a debdiff to my bug :-). I should go post an "out-of-date" bug on kismet aswell. Ubuntu is one year (1year!!!) after debian AFAICS :-P.

I should also mention that I've dreamt about ubuntu-notifier and what it should/can do for users :-). I should discuss this with mvo, branch his baz archive and maybe I could start hacking on that. It's python iirc, so it would probably be a _really_ good way to learn some serious programming :-D.

Does it sound that I need tomboy soon to bring todo lists to my desktop? Please; Feel free to welcome me to a, hopefully, more planned and productive sleeping pattern/life.
