  1. Phulud? No, Phulad.

    If you bought an North India travel guide by Vanessa Betts and Victoria McCulloch, and tried to figure out where is ‘Phulud’ and how to get there from Deogarh (and how to get to Deogarh itself from Udaipur), don’t waste your time googling, as it’s not Phulud, but …

  2. Community time at Collabora

    I haven't yet blogged about this (as normally I don't blog often), but I joined Collabora in June last year. Since then, I had an opportunity to work with OpenEmbedded again, write a kernel patch, learn lots of things about systemd (in particular, how to stop worrying about it taking …

  3. Public transport map of Managua

    Holger Levsen writes about the public transport map of Managua, Nicaragua, which is, according to him, the first detailed map of Managua's bus network:

    mk-configure is a project which tries to be autotools done right. Instead of supporting an exceedingly large number of platforms, modern and ancient, at costs of generated unreadable multi-kilobyte shell scripts, mk-configure aims at better support of less platforms, but those which are really in use today.

  8. ifupdown and command status handling

    In 2011, I first tried to fix a Debian bug #547587. The bug was about hook script result codes not being checked, so if a script fails, this isn't detected. Unfortunately, just checking the return code wasn't enough, as lots of scripts didn't care about their return code at all …

  9. hgk misbehaviour with Tk 8.4

    Strangely enough, running hgk (a port of gitk to Mercurial, also known as hg view) with Tk 8.4 crashes my X server. Updating both Tk and the X doesn't help. I don't feel like I want to debug X now, but probably that's what I have to do :(
