Day two with Dapper Drake

Currently, I'm compiling Gaim 2.0.0-beta 3, going to test it out, the beta2 were great, but still, gaim lacks some msn messenger -only features, like custom smileys, I use those, that is why it is hard to start using gaim, now I've used amsn (cause it supports Webcam and custom smilies).

Dapper Drake will be awsome, when it is released, I hope that all the bugs are fixed for the final version, Open-Office has some nasty bugs, like now I'm using gnome 2.14.1 with default settings, and Open-Office has bug: I can't view the menu's nor icons. Screenshot here

Greetings, this is my blog about Ubuntu Linux


This is my first blog entry, It's almost time for a summer vacation from the college, So I could format my computer happily from all the windows trash etc. (I have to use windows, cause the homework which require programs like Visual Basic 6/.NET, Photoshop CS2). But now I don't need those anymore, so I saw this as a change, to test the Dapper Drake.

Yesterday I installed the Dapper Drake flight 7, and I'm really happy about all this, XGL is working perfectly with Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT, I didn't even have to mess with the xorg.conf (much), but one thing I noticed, the DRI module is broken? or so I heard

mod@kaizoku:~$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No

I tried everything to enable it, but no luck, I had some other problems too, like pressing shift & backspace, that zap's the X, like pressing ctrl+alt+backspace. I noticed some bugs in Konqueror 3.5 too, like the OS selection dropdown box at doesn't work, didn't really have time to check the sourcecode.
