09:00:13 # Life pbuilder documentation is updated, and uploaded. testsuite doesn't run due to current user-mode-linux breakage that needs to be fixed.

07:45:01 # Life A bug report about pbuilder not working told me that /dev/null is not readable. After some investigation that can be reproduced when the filesystem is mounted with nodev option. With nodev, you can create device nodes, but not access it.

19:06:01 # Life whizzytex 1.1.3 seems to be broken in that it cannot update the correct dvi file when typing happens. It only updates the correct file when file is saved.

That didn't help much.

After some debugging it seems like the released ADVI doesn't really support MULTIPLE? Turned it off and it seems to be working.
