Wake on LAN

Few days ago I had to go from work to home just to turn on my desktop computer. Now when I have possibility to remote login to my router I tried to get Wake-On-LAN working.

My desktop PC has 3 network cards:

  • 3Com 3c905b-tx (my favorite one which I use since 2001)
  • SMC 9332 DST (card from 1995 year — I bought it because it has good packet driver under DOS)
  • Via-Rhine 6102 (onboard — was disabled)

in near future it will be partially replaced by “wrt54oe” distribution build using OpenEmbedded.

Star Wars epizod III

Dzisiaj (a w zasadzie to jutro bo seans o 00:01 się zaczyna) dowiem się jak doszło do powstania Lorda Vadera a wszystko to z powodu faktu, że idę do Kinepolis na premierę epizodu III Gwiezdnych Wojen (jakbym napisał z małej to fani by mnie zjedli) czyli na “Revenge of the Sith” (jakoś nie lubię polskich tytułów w tym cyklu — pewnie to przez fakt, że wszędzie w dokumentacji odwołania do poszczególnych części jest via ANH, ESB, ROTJ etc.. (nie wymieniam 1 i 2 epizodu bo to nie to samo co IV-VI)).

Hrw is already used

Today I registered on Mozillazine forums. As usual I wanted to have “Hrw” as loginname but this time I got “this nickname is already taken” message.

First time since I use Hrw as nickname I had to register as Hrwandil (I don’t count those places where login had to be longer then 3 chars).

makeqpf

I maintain some QPF font packages in OpenEmbedded. They are converted from TrueType fonts using “makeqpf” utility which is a part of Qt/Embedded from Trolltech. Today I decided that I won’t try to build own version of that tool.

Why? TT use fscking old freetype version in Qt/E 2.3.10 release which does not compile even on x86…

Trolltech sucks

Year with OpenEmbedded

It was one year ago when I pushed first change to OpenEmbedded package metadata.

That does not mean that I started using it year ago — my first submissions was in March 2004 when I started to look into OE. My first submission was SubApplet 1.0.7 which I sent to OE ML in 2004-03-20 — some time later I became maintainer of that package. Then sent some other packages, patches to existing ones etc.

In first days of May 2004 I tried to get image built by OE to boot on my Zaurus. It took few days, three attempts and lots of patching but finally I booted into text console. Most of that work was applied into repository and I got invitation into Open Embedded team. Who will not want to go in? I wanted and joined.

Since then I had ~650 changesets to packages and some OE core/BitBake changes. We released 3 versions of Familiar distribution and 3 OpenZaurus distros.
