SlackBuilds for qgis and gdal

Posted 06-29-2010 at 06:00 AM by 55020

Here's some news on two of the SlackBuilds I maintain at


It appears that the update of SIP in Slackware 13.1 (which occurred quite late in the -current cycle) exposed some breakage in the qgis build system. The consequence is that the current SBo-13.1 "BUILD=1" qgis-1.4.0 script builds without Python support. Unfortunately this means that a lot of qgis plugin functionality is disabled.

The problem is known upstream....

R.I.P. "What Are You Doing Now"

I think the title says it all. Today my favorite brain dump died. But in all honesty she'd gotten a little slow in her old age and I'm not one to cry over closed threads, so cheers to the mods for doing what had to be done.

Irssi the irc client that rocks

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC, XMPP and ICB protocols via plugins.

Even the dpkg bot in #debian agrees irssi rocks:
<dpkg> i guess irssi is the best <IRC> client ever. "aptitude install irssi" and read . See also

Gigabyte MD800 3G/gsm/CDMA MODEM

Posted 06-26-2010 at 03:57 AM by qlue (My Ubuntu)

I bought a modem for my netbook a while back and battled to get it to work.
What I learnt was;
just ejecting the fake cd switches it to modem mode
if it's connected when I switch on my netbook, it automatically defaults to modem mode.
it needs the usbserial module to be loaded.

The last bit can be done in two ways. first, from the terminal shell, type:
qlue@AcerAspireOne:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
