    pf-kernel, linux kernel fork with new useful features not merged into mainline

    Today I discovered another linux kernel patchset/fork that attempts to bring many features not in mainline together, called pf-kernel. Quoting from its website: “pf-kernel is another Linux kernel fork, that provides you with new useful features, that are not merged into mainline. It’s not based on any existing Linux fork or patchset, but some parts […]

    uzbl – a terminal for the web – in gentoo :)

    I’ve been using firefox for too long. Its excellent vimperator extension has prevented me from switching to anything else, but it is beginning to show its age. Slow loading times, occasional crashes, horrible JS performance… Meet uzbl. Wordplay for usable. Its developers describe it as web interface tools which adhere to the unix philosophy. I […]

    So… qt-*-4.6.0_rc1 is now in the portage tree, masked (since its not a final release) and you can begin testing your shiny Qt applications with it. But there’s a catch. 4.6.0_rc1 is not binary compatible with 4.6.0_beta1. [1] This means that if you’re upgrading from 4.6.0_beta1 you have to rebuild every single app depending on […]

    how-to: keep your kde 3.5 after it’s removed from gentoo’s tree, using the kde-sunset overlay

    As most of you know, KDE 3.5 is getting off the Gentoo train for various reasons mentioned elsewhere (in short: security, lack of upstream interest). Some people are still using it though and they have been asking how they can keep it on their system, without emerge screaming each time they try to update world. […]
