OLS Day 2 Hackfest
So I spent the second day at OLS mostly hacking. Attended Greg K-H's tutorial on writing a Linux kernel driver, which was cool. The kernel USB infrastructure is pretty damn neat.
Finished fixing warnings in dasher, here
is the report and patch. Unfortunately I should have had started my work on the gnome-2-12 branch, not HEAD, but that doesn't mean I've totally wasted my time. Just that I still don't have a bleeding-edge dasher running. Got to apply my patches and fix the rest in the 2.12 branch tonight at the hotel.
Since it was a bug-day
has been applying patches on pango
too, I finally wrapped up the pango-no-freetype-internals patch by David Turner that needed a bit of testing. The patch was pretty solid, but I ended up fixing a leak in the opentype/ code, and a bunch of others in the examples/. Viva valgrind.
For tomorrow's hacking, I'm going to really get started on preload
. There's not much left to the end of Summer by Google's definition.
