cws_srx645_ooo112fix2 closed, SRC680_m40 ready for use
Subject says it all: fix2 of 1.1.2 is closed, no more commits.
m40 of SRC680 is ready for use and I have updated my build system to it. I will add problems I realized during the build.
Wizards don't build, because of missing complexlib (#i29656#).
For packing images, we need new Perl module
deliver.pl in wizards can fail, because target directory doesn't exist (#i29666#).
I can't confirm the license (#i29667#).-----

QEMU is now able to boot GRUB's netboot
Fabrice was online on IRC channel
#qemu today and fixed several issues in Bochs' BIOS
code and also in network card emulation inside QEMU and now it is possible to boot from GRUB floppy
that is using netboot.
I'm now installing SuSE Linux 9.0 via AutoYast from NFS server on local network. Installation was started from floppy image that I use on real systems. GRUB successfully detected emulated NE2000 card, I assigned IP address, network mask, gateway and TFTP server and installation kernel and initial ramdisk were downloaded by TFTP.
Command line used to running the first part of installation was:
/tmp/QEMU/bin/qemu -boot a -fda /tmp/floppy.img -hda /tmp/hda.img \ -pci -user-net -m 128After the first part is finished and system reboots, qemu exits and I have to run it again this time booting from disk:
/tmp/QEMU/bin/qemu -boot c -hda /tmp/hda.img -pci -user-net -m 128-----

IRC channel opened
I have registered
#qemu channel on freenode.net and the discussion started almost
immediately. QEMU is wonderful project - you should investigate
it, really ;-)

Richard M. Stallman's presentation on Software patents
I visited Richard M. Stallman's presentation on Software patents in Prague today. Wonderful presentation with a clear structure and message.
"(With software patents) developing software is like crossing the mine-filed."
UpdateRichard was also on TV. I wonder how professional translator who knows it all is about patents can translate the word patent as pattern ;-)-----

Next cws for 1.1.2 opened
Next community workspace for upcoming 1.1.2 has been opened today. Its names is cws_srx645_ooo112fix2.
This branch has several issues as of now: three modules are not tagged (
msfontextract), some directories do not contain all changes from fix1 (see
e.g. issues #i27765# and #i28068#). I have extracted both
files and GSI
files for all supported languages. I haven't finished build yet, because of missing modules (if
you want to try, use fix1 versions), but built transex3 project. deliver.pl emits warning messages
(see #i28924# for more
details). Maybe someone who is masochistic enough to learn Perl will change it ;-)
I filed these issues today:
- #i28924# (deliver.pl emits warnings)
- #i28925# (UI.xcu and Error: Unknown language code:)
- #i28927# (Norwegian README not translated)
- #i28931# (Butterfly in cinema/writer.bmp)
