The last blogs came via a borrowed network cable. Two cables for a room of
sixteen. That's the
Never be trustfull and think that wireless will work!
Now we splitted in smaller groups and could have normal no wireless lan, if I had a cable! Which I didn't brought, since I thought, that surely in big company like IBM (hosting OSDL's DAM-2 meeting) they will have working wireless...
Currently me mostly concentrate on the following topics:
- Portland Project (xdg-utils)
- Sound / Multimedia
- Desktop Standards (LSB)
- SODA arch (just showed by Tom Schwaller, some kind of
back to the rootscomponized application idea)
- build once / installation / sytem management / etc. (independent Software vendors want something like autopackage, but it should work...)
PS: I would like to add, that I'm not flooding planet again; but the wireless lan broke down, so you'll get severall of my blogs at the same time; I'm taking notes through this and thought they might be interesting for someone.
Now listening a bit about Waldo Bastians talk about
Interesting stuff, didn't knew something like that was planed. Other topics
discussed here: Printing, Wireless, Sound and Multimedia and Desktop Standards.
Other topic mentioned: Non distributable firmwares. I thought till now, that's mainly a problem Debian is interested in. Most common solution: Distribute that and wait for lawyers to come :(
Well, at least we could find some additional power bars.
I think I don't need to mention the usual suspects like Kurt Pfeifle and
LinuxPrinting Tim. And even one I just flamed for not delivering his
paper for DebConf in time: Alvaro Lopez Ortega. As already mentioned, he'is
quite interested in creating a
best of both worlds system. OpenSolaris
kernel and Debian userland / tools. Encouraged him to continue and got some
tipps for sun protection for Mexico in return ;)
