EvalBot at home

The Stellaris development kit I ordered back in October has finally arrived today. Kudos to TI for keeping their promise and delivering it for the discounted price. I'll do the assembly when the boy comes home from the kindergarten so we can have some fun together :-)

KDE 4.6.0 for Solaris

Binary KDE 4.6.0 packages for Solaris 11 are available at the usual place. The only parts missing are kdebindings, kdeplasma-addons and kdepim. Unfortunately these are not buildable at the moment. On the other hand 53 localization packages are present.
Other packages worth mentioning are Amarok 2.4.0, QtCreator 2.0.1 and Boost 1.45

There is an interesting powerdevil related crash when one logs into the session, but apart from that it works quite nicely.

The packages were built on b151a so OpenIndiana users might prefer to build them themselves.

There is no spo^Wbutton

There is no door-button in this bus, if you can see any you must be hallucinating.

KDE 4.5.5 for Solaris 11

$SUBJ is out in the wild, you can get it from the repository at bionicmutton.
There's not many changes upstream, but concerning Solaris support, we're workarounding a stupid cairo bug in S11e that caused issues with anything png-related.

No spam

A few weeks ago we put a label saying 'No advertisements' on our mailbox.
Of course the frequency of the warm fuzzy feelings that accompany the act of throwing a big box of paper waste into the blue paper bins has drastically decreased but something's telling me the nature appreciates it more this way :-)

It also gives us quite a unique feeling as in our town only 275 other people do the same. Wow :-(
