I think I’ve made my desktop look sufficiently like a default “install”. I really like the look of this, and could very much get used to it.
I’m running RC2 of the latest Mandriva from a live-cd to test a couple of things out, and thought I’d have a look at how KDE is doing. It’s pretty, but doesn’t seem anywhere near as instinctive as Gnome. But maybe that’s just me. It’s still pretty though.
I’ve built an RPM that installs fine on my installation of Mandriva 2009 (RC1). Downloadable from here, but I’m only prepared to say that this works for me right now, as I’ve not tested it elsewhere.

British singer/songwriter Sean Wright has been releasing one full album a month for the past year and a half. A couple of weeks ago I started to dip into these, and have so far downloaded about 30 songs, all of which I like to a greater or lesser degree. It makes me wonder how much […]
Kouki deleted all their albums from Jamendo, which is slightly annoying as I’d only got about half way through downloading them. I must have listened to about 24 hours worth of new music this week, and as I’m off work on Monday I might even get a chance to review some of it.
Icarus Crash are a melodic hard rock group from Malaga in Spain. They sing in Spanish, with a few English phrases thrown in on occasion (I think). As I’m not really a fan of the genre, I didn’t expect to like this as much as I do. It sounds like a more compact and more […]
Again, a really simple command to pull up a google map. map B457HJ There is a lot more that can be done with maps, but that will have to wait for another day.
