11:28:32 # Life faketoo seems like something similar to what debootstrap does, but for gentoo. Interesting to see the initial responses to such post. 'Why would you want to do this?'
09:58:06 # Life The friday and saturday ended with being drunk; and I had a Karaoke session, which was pretty nice. I haven't sang at Karaoke for almost half a year, and it's refreshing. I've arranged a keysigning party at Tokyo station today; I wonder how many people will come.
I haven't had much time to work on anything serious. Duh.
Setting up planetplanet is pretty interesting. Is it the first Japanese planet ?
06:16:26 # Life Summary; don't use automake18 yet. Bug, 241451, 244869. automake1.8 has been patched to build tar archives using --format=posix option, which doesn't really work everywhere. But that doesn't seem to explain everything.
Found that libpci1 has been blocking upgrades, I guess that's been happening because the 'replaces' missed an epoch.

10:58:03 # Life It's rather difficult to know what's happening with debconf4. I'm not quite sure what I should be doing, or if anyone is working out the schedules. What's my deadlines? Just noticed that call for papers states the deadlines for the paper is April 15th, which is already past. Damn.
Sent a mail about it, hopefully to get something sorted out.
19:39:50 # Life To get debootstrap working with current state of sid, I just hacked line 146 of sid.buildd script to add --force-overwrite. I'm re-running the testsuite to check if it works.
19:59:45 # Life Nice, I hear news that k-mib-ppc-beta-pre-10 disk images are supposed to work on Mac G5, and that fan support is added on somewhere around 2.6.3 kernel trees. (from debian-powerpc ML)
07:57:01 # Life I received 'What is a dsh, different from normal shells?' question via direct email. Sounds a bit dumb, but maybe I'll add that to the page.
08:27:37 # Life somebody mailed me asking about the Sparc cluster page. They are supersparcs, and really, old. No longer used, never used much in the first place, except for getting the hang of MPI. Memories. It was written in year 2000.

07:25:17 # Life Getting pbuilder to use --variant=buildd option. Hacked all morning to get it working. It takes quite a bit of time to debug this beast. debootstrap --variant=buildd doesn't seem to work today. So, no way to test it. damn
08:34:51 # Life Today's debootstrap fails. Hmmmm. Maybe tomorrow.
22:18:37 # Life pbuildd maintenance. There was a race condition in build-agent.sh which caused it to loop around a package. That's now fixed. Good. Apparently, the build process was just waiting for my manual intervention. I've got an impression that build process will go much quicker than 10-days per run. -- er, that was wrong. It didn't finish.
08:23:12 # Life The best April fool's joke so far, for me, was apt-gentoo. Good laugh.
08:18:47 # Life New month. merkel.debian.org seems to be hosting a bunch of things, with ftp-master mirror and BTS mirror. Interesting Itanium machine.
