But I managed to compile them into the gtkpod binary using static libs. This goes against everything slackware has taught, but I feel that it was worth it in the end.

Basically, I have a build script that builds gtkpod. Before it does that, it will build its gnome dependencies as static libs...

Having used Ubuntu as my main OS for over 3 years, I'm still a Linux beginner. Ubuntu has made it (relatively) easy to do my day to day computing, and the forums make it easy to fix things that go/are wrong.

I recently pulled out and dusted off a previously obsoleted box that I bought when I was living in Perth in 2000/2001. I was never a gamer so system specs were never too much of an issue. This baby has 64MB of RAM and a Celeron processor.

First off, make sure that you don't have any previous drivers installed, so remove them. If you don't have the drivers installed skip this step:

kopete does not recognize webcam

Sailing The Unforgiving C

Posted 02-25-2009 at 06:20 PM by raconteur (raconteur's rotunda)

I have a long-held belief that universities are short-changing their programming students by glossing over many of the fundamentals of C.

I hire interns regularly, and occasionally keep them for longer periods.
This is a college town, and my company has developed a reputation as a springboard, so I usually don't keep developers for very long because they go on to bigger and better things.
I certainly don't resent that, I encourage all of them to do best for themselves, whether...
