When you can’t login using SSH after installing Voyage Linux on a CF Card, this might come from extracting the voyage-XXX.tar.bz2 not as root. This results in some /dev/ nodes not being created.
Simplest solution: re-extract as root and run installation again.
cpio failes to update
If you’re getting the following error after apt-get update/upgrade from Debian Etch:
Unpacking replacement cpio …

KDE needs a relicensing! While I’m not happy that the release of the GPL3 made such an effort necessary… But now it’s important to handle it fast and correct. Please give your feedback to techbase or use SVN:
svn co svn+ssh://$email@example.com/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdesdk/scripts
vi scripts/relicensecheck.pl & add your name to all the four lists (that is if you agree to all four options)
svn ci scripts -m “I agree to a relicense”
As Tom Alberssays:
“Really, it’s not more than a minute of work for you.”
I’m running KDE4 RC1 as my main desktop for 2 days now. Only few crashes, so productivity is good. But there are many small bugs. And it’s not very fast/responsive. But this is at least partially to blame on all the debug code.
Quite happy so far! It’s shaping up! Please test!!!

KDE Four Live: openSUSE based Live CD KDE4Daily: full virtual machine image with efficient update mechanism to SVN head
Please report any possibilities to try out KDE4 the easy way in the comments section:-)
Well, I’m multitasking heavily between project. I told you about my HL7 explorations. That project is on hold for a few weeks (due to my oscommerce setup for Agrabah and other projects). But here’s the link to some interesting opensource medical software: Elexis. It contains some HL7 importers and helps me a lot to see an actual implementation. Another helpfull source is the ruby-hl7 library. More later…
osCommerce is an opensource online store implementation. It’s implemented using PHP and there is a tonload of contributions available.
Most contributions are simple zip files containing additional or modified files. There’s a big problem when using multiple contributions modifying the same files. I’m using a distributed revision tool to merge those contributions. Here is the first release of some of the osc-tools
