12:14:14 # Today's hack Since bttv driver in the new kernel misrecognized my GV-BCTV5E card, I hacked it up. Kernel 2.6.3 contains updates from my information, but that information was slightly misleading, apparently. The following patch fixes problems.

09:18:50 # Life Martin Michlmayr sent me a mail saying that he cannot send me a mail, but looking at his log, he's failing because he wants to look up the A record of netfort.gr.jp, which does not exist. I seem to remember that mail software looks up MX records, not A records. However, he's not the first one to complain; what's this trend?

11:04:48 # Life I've crafted a script to get a madison output of list of packages that depend on libjack. /usr/share/doc/madison-lite/examples/make-local-mirror; madison-lite --suite unstable,testing --mirror /tmp/mirror \ $(apt-cache showpkg libjack0.80.0-0| grep "^ " | cut -d, -f1 | sort -u). Looking at the list, things aren't that bad, but not good either. It might be nice to get a list of arches that need to be fixed and get running.
