"Snoooooow, snooooow, snooooooooooow!"
- Lumilinna ("The Cold Old Times")
Yesterday in Nelonen news a random reporter commented that sometimes "white stuff known as 'snow'" falls from the sky and makes roads the dangerous. I know he was joking, but I'd like to say this one anyway: Bloody southern wimps... =)
Anyway, it snows outside. Interesting. I don't know what to say; all I wish is that the winter would not be too cold!
XFree86 4.0.1 installed!
Some points so far:
- Installation (xf86cfg) sucked. Dexter (Debian X configurator) was kewl and worked and all that, though.
- Font stuff sucked. (Needed to rearrange the font lists. Some fonts are huge, some others aren't.)
- Took a Huge Bunch of disk space. (Nuked at least 100 megs worth of ripped MP3s to make this one fit...)
- 1280x960x24bpp! Beats the living shit out of 1280x960x16bpp, of course...
- Tablet doesn't work. (The documentation for Wacom module setup sucks.)
- Mouse wheel doesn't work. DRATS!
Well, a few problems to be fixed, but so far, it has worked - and that was the Point!
Got the mouse wheel working, cool.
Installing the new version of Tux Racer - though I doubt I'll get it to work in DRI mode with a Ye Olde Kernel of 2.2.14... =)
Damn, the screen still flickers with 4.0.1 (when using ATI Rage 128)...
Other day logs o' mine...
