One Week With GNOME Classic: Day Three

Filed under
Software

Today marked my first work-from-home day since I started this little experiment. Working from home is notable insofar as it means that there is a period of time after login before I have access to my internal work network. This is relevant because I am logged into both internal and external IRC servers at all times during my workday. However, since I’m not on the internal network until I fire up the VPN and perform the dark and secretive rites necessary to authenticate to it, there’s a period of time where access to internal features will be unavailable.

What I discovered this morning is that Empathy will attempt to sign me into all of the configured services immediately upon login. Because there are services that are unreachable, it means that at login time I’m essentially struck in the face by a series of messages about how my services are unreachable or there has been an error, etc.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
