Yes, that's my fault...

BSP, day 2

  • cracklib-runtime #309746: I sent additional information to reproduce buggy situation.
  • synaptic #309969: Downgraded to important, Tags: unreproducible + moreinfo. I think this is user's environment problem. Maybe FS is corrupted.
  • xlockmore-gl #309760: Hmm, I forget fvwm configuration. I couldn't reproduce this problem with fvwm + gaim (IRC mode). Needs user's configuration. But AFAIK this bug may be downgraded.

Tempura is maybe one of most famous meals in Japan. Dredge foods with flour and egg and fry them a little minutes.
Today, I cooked eggplant, greenpepper, squid, carrot, onion, sweet potato and ... garlic. The taste of garlic is not so bad, but it tainted my breath... ARGH, bad smell.

DVD-ROM has too narrow space for me...

Since yesterday I'm trying to modify my original task of debian-cd for my book. I need to include binaries and sources in one DVD-ROM.
CD 1 will only be filled with 1851520632 bytes ...
CD 1 will have 2542 packages.
Dispatching the sources on all the CDs ...
Using package file /var/local/debian-cd/tmp2/sarge-i386/1.packages
Source CD 1 filled with 2880900859 bytes ... (limit was 2881486848)
CD 2 will only be filled with 11704386 bytes ...
CD 1 will have 3718 files from source packages.
CD 2 will have 35 files from source packages.
Hmm... 4.7GB is too narrow for me. :-P
Next challenge:
-- Adding standard, required, important and base packages
   on the first CD ...
   Standard system already takes 426098258 bytes on the first CD.
-- Starting to add packages to the CDs ...
CD 1 will only be filled with 1808173952 bytes ...
CD 1 will have 2508 packages.

Resume my writing

Half year ago, I suspended to write and fix my book, Debian GNU/Linux Tettei-Nyumon ('Debian GNU/Linux Perfect Guidebook' if I call this in English).

This book is 3rd publishing of this series. Previous two were for hamm and potato.

For sarge, initial date of my writing was Dec 25th, 2002 (!). I had written a book for woody before some months ago, but I was very disappointed about its quality... I was writing and writing for long days, joining and working on some teams to improve quality of sarge. But finally, I decided to suspend my work till Debian Project indeed release sarge even if it makes publisher's disappointment.

...Now, I'm most happy to resume my work!
My book is over 800 pages but fortunately changes look very minor. I'd like to add note about new funny tools such as module-assistant.

Hiya-shabu is cool version of Shabu-shabu.
Boil various foods quickly as same as Shabu-shabu but for Hiya-shabu, cool down them by ice in bowl. Healthy and fresh.

Golden week and Debian work

In Japan, this week is called 'Golden week' because there are successive holidays almost 1 week. Many people go abroad, or back their hometown and have a time with their parents.
All of my clear plan in Golden week is only I'll go home of my parents at day after tomorrow.
Other days, I'm spending time for Debian work. There are some debconf messages are needed translations, so I'll try to catch up with pt_PR, or de if I can. (French cover level is really awful...)
