    update #1: upstream accepted my patch, so the next tmux release will provide window-status-alert-{attr,fg,bg} 😉 Only difference is the use of alert instead of flagged. It sounds better anyway 😉 I’ll adjust my patch on 1.2 as well 🙂 update #2 [2010/05/17]: uploaded my updated config file, now using ` as my prefix key update […]

    kde-testing overlay’s kde4 live status

    Some changes in KDE’s svn repository broke some live gentoo ebuilds today… This happened because some applications (namely ark and nepomuk) now depend on a new package in extragear/libs called libknotificationitem. I’ve made the necessary modifications in gentoo’s kde-testing overlay to fix the issue  by adding a new ebuild for libknotificationitem and adding libknotificationitem DEPEND […]

    Private overlay… Eyes only!

    I now have my personal gentoo overlay over at github. For those not familiar with overlays, they are something like a “repository”.
