I'd like to say that the GDC coverage is AMAZING. Thanks to the whole GDnet team (they are working hard to provide us these informations).

Linux programming

It has been a long time since I stopped linux programming. Something like 4 to 5 years in fact (I attended the guadec 2000 in Paris, and the guys I saw there were stupid and disgusting - I really felt bad because of them and I stopped my collaboration with Tony Gale and Erik Mouw immediately (despite their human qualities), mainly because I decided to beleive that they were all the same). My company sold some Linux/Qt/MySQL work to another company.

Some points:
1) Mandrake 10.1 is really a PITA. On the machine I use (a DELL PowerEdge 750) the kernel 2.6 do not see the TEAC CD-ROM, while the 2?4 sees it. Stupid.
2) there are numerous problems with the "control panel" (example: renaming a user do not rename the user home directory, but change the home directory in the password file - maybe it works in the general case...)
3) harddrake is stupid. It decided that my mouse is a USB mouse. It is a PS2 mouse. I initially added harddrake in the init.d services - but it systematically updated my X configuration to tell the server that I use a USB mouse - X without a mouse is not teh funnay.
4) I really though that KDevelop was intelligent. It seems he can import Makefile based-projects - it cannot create them (in the default Mandrake configuration).

...and so on...

Anyway, I'm pleased with this box.


Next entry - all about the graphic engine! - : what we already done, and what we still have to do.

See you soon.
