New Focus

Posted 06-22-2006 at 11:02 PM by Freemor

Hi Again Everyone,

With the recent Official release of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake) I've had to mull what to do with this Blog. I have decided to keep it going and just focus it on my many pokings about in Dapper. I am one of those Techie type folks that loves to tinker and Hack (that being the origional positive connotation hack). So I figured why not let other benefit from my trials and tribulations and other adventures. To that effect I have re-named the blog slightly and...

It's Official... Ubuntu 6.06 LTS has arrived...

Yeah, ok, I'm a bit late mentioning that ... but, Hey, life gets busy some times.

Other then the number of updates slowing down.. Not A lot has changed.. But then Dapper has been Quite Stable for me even from the early days. So, now that it is an official release.. Why not run out and grab yourself a copy. Just in case you didn't know their website is at http://www.ubuntu.com/ (BTW I like the new look of the webpage.)

So now I guess I'll have to find something else...

When Do these Guys sleep??

Posted 05-12-2006 at 06:09 PM by Freemor

Well, the Updates have just been flying in. Far too many to enumerate here, Surfice it to say that the Ubuntu Developers are Very hard at wok on Dapper. Many minor annoyances and glitches have disappeared with the updates. (For one I can now serial hot sync my palm at the full 115200 baud rate). This Mornings updates introduced new (and IMHO) much improved startup/shutdown splash graphics. (Nice touch guys).

I must say I'm Glad that the Ubuntu team decided to miss the planned release...

Up To Beta

Posted 04-22-2006 at 06:42 PM by Freemor

We are officially up to Dapper Beta. Woohoo The problem mentioned previously with /proc/bus/usb seems to have been fixed up (yeah usbview works again) so that should make life with a USB based palm nicer. Gpilotd seems to be having some issues with the backup conduit (can't instatinate) so hopefully that will be fixed up in the not too distant future.

The updates have been flying in last week or so leading up to the Beta release. I can definitely say that the whole Ubuntu team have...

Non-clairvoyent Dapper

Posted 04-11-2006 at 12:41 AM by Freemor


Seems Dapper, or at least the current incantation on gpilotd can't read usb palms (got a new one for my wife for her B-Day). Luckily, palm users abound, and many people have been squacking about the situation. There is currently a work around to the problem posted by qball on ubuntu fourms which is to issue the following on the command line:

sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb/

Seems the problem is that gpilotd is looking for info in /proc/bus/usb/devices...
