Small Call for Movable Type Help
Hello Everyone!

I have a need for the tarball of Movable Type version 2.64. Does anyone have a copy of that version anywhere? We can't seem to find it and our site is a bit FUBAR at the moment. We can't find anywhere to download it, and the libraries that are distributed with the new versions don't work. We only need the /extlib dir from MT 2.64.

If anyone has a copy of that version, if you could just tar it up and email it to fmerenda at gmail.com I would really, really appreciate it (or just post a link to where I can download the full version or a tgz of the /extlib directory). Thanks!

x-post to my personal journal.

Take care,
-Frank

question from a 'script kiddie'
Why is it that there exist some DVDs in which libdvdcss2 will not decrypt, yet Mplayer can?

Obviously they must use different algorthims, but it was my understanding that the process was finished...

strange input/output error
My laptop runs Slackware 10(ish) with kernel 2.6.7. Recently, I suffered a crash when the box came unplugged and abruptly shut down. Everything seems fine, but when ldconfig is run, it complains as follows:

ldconfig: Input file /usr/lib/libcupsimage.so.2 not found.

ldconfig: Input file /usr/lib/libglib-1.2.so.0.0.10 not found.

ldconfig: Input file /usr/lib/libgmodule-1.2.so.0.0.10 not found.

ldconfig: Input file /usr/lib/libgthread-1.2.so.0.0.10 not found.

I have an ext3 filesystem with writeback mode enabled,so I thought a few libraries may have been screwed up upon recovery. I tried reinstalling glib, but I got the following errors:

rm: cannot remove `libglib.so': Input/output error
ln: accessing `libglib.so': Input/output error

When I try manually installing the glib libraries, I get similar errors for all the libglib files, libgmodule files and libgthread files.

I usually associate these sorts of errors with hardware problems, such as bad drive sectors or imminent drive failure. However, smartctl -a reports no problems. Any suggestions?

[PALM] Goal of the day: Get that Zire 72 working on linux !
Hi,

I am trying to get my handheld - PALM Zire 72 working on my Fedora Core 1 box.

I have already done the following:



  • Read the PALM device HOWTO.
    But did not comprehend how to set $PILOTPORT ?


    [nerdy@gizmoX nerdy]$ pilot-xfer -l
    No $PILOTPORT specified and no -p given.
    Defaulting to '/dev/pilot'

    Unable to bind to port: /dev/pilot
    Please use --help for more information

    [nerdy@gizmoX nerdy]$


  • I have connected the device thru the USB cable and got this using dmesg:

SuSe 9.1 hangs on a dual-booting Dell Inspiron
Ok people, here's my issue. After upgrading from Fedora Core 1 to FC2 and discovering the FC2 issue with nVidia cards, I decided to try a third distro. After some research, I tried SuSe 9.1 and enjoyed it very much, until...

...after playing with some settings (all minor software updates) and restarted, the boot process would hang at one point:

Loading kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko
warning: can't open /etc/mtab: No such file or directory
ReiserFS: hda9: found ReiserFS format "3.6" with standard journal
ReiserFS: hda9: using ordered data mode
reiserfs: using flush barriers
ReiserFS: hda9: journal params: device hda9, size 8192, journal first block 18, max trans len 1024, max batch 900, max commit age 30, max trans age 30
ReiserFS: hda9:checking transaction log (hda9)

That is where it freezes. If I boot in Failsafe I get an additional line:

spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7


After several tries, I gave up. I reinstalled. Not fun considering it was a second overnight FTP install. This time, SuSe crashed and the same boot hang happened. Suspecting a reiser issue, I installed again, this time from CD, and using ext3. Thinking my problems were over, I rebooted after some configuring, and once again, the boot process hung, this time as fsck "ran" (the hard drive light was on, but the drive wasn't spinning).

I've decided I'm going to either fix it or try another distro. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Holy $&!#
Apple releases developer preview of Rendezvous for... well, everything

I have to say that rendezvous was one of the coolest things back when I had a Mac; not so much for the auto-ip stuff, but for the instant communication and connection with other Macs. Of course, it floods the network with traffic, but not more than the foolish Windows machines, and there's far more value in it.

Current Mood: geeky
