    Mailing list threads from the Linux Kernel Development Team.

  • PerkyPants.org: Havoc Pennington and GConf (GNOME 2.0 Status Interviews) (2001-09-17 18:00:44)
    "For users the big benefit is dynamic, instantaneous update of all apps when a preference is modified; i.e., it gives us instant-apply for prefs dialogs for free, even if the setting affects many processes. Oh, also GConf will hopefully help out with the issue of running multiple GNOME sessions sharing a home directory. There's more work to be done here though. Right now it wouldn't work so well out-of-the-box because we disable CORBA connections over TCP by default, for example."

  • LinuxProgramming: Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Sep 17) (2001-09-17 17:00:15)
    All that's new in the Python world.

  • Gnotices: Gdkxft 1.2 released (Anti-aliased font support to gtk+-1.2) (2001-09-17 15:08:44)
    "Improvements include: installation tuning, debian packaging, more gdk font API hooks, bugfixes and more. Gdkxft now features a Gnome control center capplet. If you have Gnome, and are building from sources, it will be built and installed automatically. If you are installing from rpms, you will need the extra gdkxft-capplet rpm."

  • Linus Torvalds: Linux-2.4.10-pre10 (2001-09-17 02:20:30)
    "Most of the patches are due to the continuing merge with Alan, others tend to be fairly small. However, I'd love for VM people to look at the page reference bit cleanups - I might have missed some place that needs to mark something referenced, but I also know I fixed a few places that hadn't done it right before."

  • Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.9-ac11 (2001-09-17 02:18:57)
    "This is just a resync as various people work to get most of -ac into Linus 2.4.10. Please don't resend patches - I have a lot lot nicely queued. This is just a snapshot to keep pakrat happy and so folks can see where it is at and double check. It might even boot - who knows?"
