welcome mate!

i made small modification from the original one.
first, of course, i changed the city.
and there is a small issue if you are not online. so i changed in a way that the file is kept in the hard disk and updated when convenient.

well
i wrote one too but it is perl. it is to grab the latest 2.4 kernel ver # and print it.
there is one bug but it isn't going to really cause a prob until the kernel gets into double digits
in the main release or sub-release section or triple digit in the minor release section. i know that those aren't
the official names for the release format but that is what i call it. any way if you want it.
Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl

$fingerfile = "$HOME/tosmoscripts";

system ("finger \@kernel\.org | grep 'latest 2\.4'\>$fingerfile/finger");

open (FINGER), "$fingerfile/finger");
    $finger=<FINGER>;
close (FINGER);

if ($finger =~ /\d\.\d\.\d{2}$/){
    $kver = $&;
    print "Current 2.4:\n";
    print "$kver\n";
}
as far as getting it to stop the finger i don't know but if someone has an idea let me know...... i will gladly add it.
i know that it isn't much but it is something.

This is basically the same shot as before but I wrote a script for torsmo that retrieves the latest available packages for arch linux:

Here

I also have the same script that works for Gentoo packages too.

dunno why, but can't seem to use torsmo with Mandrake 10.1 properly. flickers like crazy... guess it could be KDE, all you guys seem to be using light WM/DE.

Oh, and if cb_linus sees this: I'm getting 4505 bogomips out of my Athlon XP 3000+ now BTW, but am overclocking a bit. All my mobo components were rated for 400Mhz (except CPU), so bumping it from 333 to 350 was still within tolerances. Only thing I'm worried about is PCI bus, which is now at 35/70 instead of 33/66, but luckily I'm not using any PCI cards ATM. Anyway, with all the fans in this case I really didn't notice any temp change either (watching sensors with gkrellm.)

from torsmo README

KNOWN PROBLEMS

Drawing to root or some other desktop window directly doesn't work with all window managers. Especially doesn't work well with Gnome and it has been reported that it doesn't work with KDE either. Nautilus can be disabled from drawing to desktop with program gconf-editor. Uncheck show_desktop in /apps/nautilus/preferences/. There is -w switch in torsmo to set some specific window id. You might find xwininfo -tree useful to find the window to draw to. You can also use -o argument which makes torsmo to create its own window.

I guess that's why they call it a README file. LOL. Well, I can report that it definitely doesn't work right with KDE.

Mandrake hasn't gone to KDE 3.4 yet, and from what I hear next version won't have it either. Could be Slackware is using the KDE DE without the KDE WM, however, so you haven't necessarily proven it works with 3.4 hehe
