Not much free time…

I am work­ing for a new client now, where I have more things to take care about. This reduces a bit the pos­si­bil­ity to write some inter­est­ing things here.

There are some things I would like to doc­u­ment here, some more expe­ri­ences with Android and cus­tom cer­tifi­cates, some things about Solaris, and other stuff. Unfor­tu­nately the day has only 24 hours.

VIA Envy24HT dri­ver committed

Finally I used some free time to com­mit the VIA Envy24HT dri­ver of Kon­stan­tin Dim­itrov to -cur­rent. He told me it sup­ports some sound­cards which ALSA doesn’t sup­port. Nice! :-)

Please test and say “Thank you!” to him.

Some days of mentoring…

In the last days I spend my free time with men­tor­ing Boris and the SoC stu­dents. Boris is maybe ready to fly solo now (and he already got implicit aproval for sev­eral things from me), but I will keep an eye on him from time to time for some more weeks.

The lin­ux­o­la­tor SoC project pro­gresses faster now. We may have sup­port for TLS, TID and futexes in the com­ming week (this should allow us to run FC4/FC5 with a linux ker­nel ver­sion of 2.6.x, time will tell).

In the sound SoC project, Ryan cre­ated an user repos­i­tory. He is more com­fort­able with com­mit­ting “micro-changes” to the user branch first to not spam the per­force mail­inglist. I don’t think this mat­ters, but when he feels more com­fort­able this way, I don’t object. This makes it a lit­tle bit harder for me to fol­low, but I will nag him more often for a sta­tus report then.

I also MFCed the fixes for Ora­cle 10, it should work on 6-stable too now.
