08:16:38 # Life Having investigated problems with pdebuild-user-mode-linux, I've found that most parts of config parsing for pdebuild-user-mode-linux aren't actually implemented. It's probably due to my setup with non-functional UML most of the time; disallowing me from debugging UML version of pbuilder. Gah.
18:26:31 # Life Because I was annoyed by gqview dates not being displayed correctly, I wrote a patch. gqview, and quite a few GNOME applications seem to assume UTF-8 is the locale being used.

11:06:09 # Life After possible more than one year of non-functionality, I've made pbuilder-user-mode-linux testsuite work. It didn't work at all before, thus it didn't function as a regression test.
07:36:27 # Life I've browsed through packages that do not install non-interactively. They tend to have some kind of patches from 1 year ago. They just don't get fixed, apparently. gpm, lprfax, xmcd.
I added a ulimit -f 1048576 to install-test scripts. It should be an improvement, hopefully.
11:02:05 # Today's hack Bug#257511 suggests that HTML files auto-generated by hevea pick up the charset from the current locale. Since I don't want manuals for whizzytex to be distributed in EUC-JP, I would need to set it to something else.
I've later noticed that there is a -charset option that can be specified. Hmm..
10:11:30 # Life debian-builder ? Somewhat simple name; probably the first tool related to the task of building Debian packages which contains the term 'debian'. I'm not quite sure after reading the description what it does; does it build all its dependency ? Does it just do what pbuilder does?
20:01:13 # Today's hack uploaded new upstream of canna, and a trivial fix for ecasound. I'm pending ecasound2.2 to ecasound transition, and hopefully this is my last upload.
06:57:01 # Life New month. I've bought a USB-audio device, and now I can record-and-playback using ecasound. I am hoping to resume doing multi-track recording.
