collaboration's demise

aseigo.blogspot: Dave Neary published a blog post about some of the challenges experienced with GNOME and Canonical working together. I'm not going to put myself in the middle of that particular tempest-in-a-teapot, but when I got to the point in Dave's blog where he justified GNOME not picking up the appindicator work I cringed and then cringed some more.

Ubuntu, Natty and Unity

Filed under
Ubuntu I have to confess, after I heard I found out we where shipping Unity in Ubuntu by default I was nervous. I've been using Unity while enjoying a long weekend I've spent the last few days using it a lot, and my feeling towards the it have changed quite a bit.

Filed under

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 10.10 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Has GNOME rejected Canonical help?

Filed under
Ubuntu Through the fall-out from the Unity decision, and now the fall-out from the packaging of Banshee on Natty, I have repeatedly read Canonical & Ubuntu people say “We offered our help to GNOME, and they didn’t want it”.

  • The Sun Sets on KDE-Solaris
    The KDE-Solaris site has been shuttered. The subdomain now redirects to KDE techbase, which documents the last efforts related to KDE on then-OpenSolaris. From the year 2000 or earlier until 2013, you could run KDE — two, three or four — on Solaris, either SPARC or (later) x86. I remember doing packaging for my university, way back when, on a Sun Enterprise 10000 with some ridiculous amount of memory — maybe 24GB, which was ridiculous for that time. This led — together with some guy somewhere who had a DEC Alpha — to the first 64-bitness patches in KDE. Solaris gave way to OpenSolaris, and Stefan Teleman rebooted the packaging efforts in cooperation with Sun, using the Sun Studio compiler. This led to a lot of work in the KDE codebase in fixing up gcc-isms. I’d like to think that that evened up the road a little for other non-gcc compilers later.
