HCL: 2nd step, HCL meets Wiki

Yesterday I connected PCI HCL checker to Wiki. There are still many homework, but this connection is a big step for me :) It's really easy to add information of your machine, and is helpful for everyone who owns/plans to buy same machine.

(Currently wiki page is editable by only system and me.)

HCL: 1st step, PCI database

I often heard one of biggest Debian problem is that Debian doesn't provide HCL - Hardware Compatibility List. It's too hard work to maintain it as same as Microsoft does, but indeed HCL is useful for normal users who won't love troubleshooting hardware compatibility. :)

As 1st step I made PCI/driver matching database, http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/. You can test by putting your "lspci -n" to the box.

Currently this database gathers informations from pci.ids of pciutils, modules.pcimap of kernel 2.6.14-686-smp, discover1-data, and alsa-common.

Pictures from new camera

I bought new camera-- Canon EOS Kiss N, single-lens reflex camera. It's bit expensive but I'm satisfied its quality and usability. You can see large pictures by clicking images.

Speech at MOSS4

I was invited MOSS, Medical Free/Open Source Software Council, on last weekend. My speech was about the risk management of Debian. I believe we should more consider risks of FLOSS (at least as same as we choose proprietary commercial software) when we use FLOSS on business scene.
