Short sta­tus: RealPlayer, Sound, Linux, …

I’m busy with non–FreeBSD related stuff since a while, so there’s not much to say.

RealPlayer: Shaun, the FreeBSD main­tainer of the helix­player port, promised to pol­ish up a patch­set when he gets time to port helix­player to a more recent ver­sion and send it to the cor­re­spond­ing helix com­mu­nity (requested by some peo­ple at Real after show­ing them the patches via cvsweb). Their review and inte­gra­tion of this stuff will help in get­ting a RealPlayer binary from Real.

Sound: The work of Ariff (and every other con­trib­u­tor) in the HDA area seems to be very appre­ci­ated. There are aven voices ask­ing for a MFC. I don’t think we will get it for 6.2. It’s too late in the release process and Ariff seems to be busy.

Sound2: Ryan com­mit­ted a fix to P4 which should pro­vide some miss­ing stuff to some break­ing ports. If some­one has time to com­mit it…

Linux: A lot of progress hap­pened here. The long­stand­ing major bug on amd64 is fixed and MFCed (thanks to kib!), so we finally got some results for the amd64 runs of the LTP test­cases (now color coded to spot prob­lems much faster). The sta­tus of the sta­ble run is already on the wiki page (but this is with­out the MFC). Runs on cur­rent (2.4.2 and 2.6.16 based emu­la­tion) and sta­ble after the MFC where already done, but I didn’t got time to wiki-fy their sta­tus yet.

Ports: I already have an update for my sylpheed-claws port to 2.6.0 together with a move to LOCALBASE (includ­ing the plu­gin ports) avail­able, but I have to wait until the ports-slush is lifted.

    Great news about FreeBSD! :)

    Alot of Arabs using RealPlayer more than win­dows media player, so for sure it’s good news for them!
