SUSE Linux 10.1 "Remastered"

Seems it's up to me as nobody else blogs about it: SUSE Linux 10.1 "Remastered" CD and DVD ISOs are now available (if you have still the original ISOs around, there exist delta ISOs against them). These have all the online patches which were released since the original 10.1 "goldmaster" release already integrated. This means no more three times restart of YOU during installation. :-) And also a more stable, slightly faster and delta-rpms for online updates supporting package mananagment.

KDE - Defining the Linux Desktop for Ten Years!

Today ten years ago the KDE project was founded. It certainly influenced the life of many people including mine. :-) The party at the 10 Years KDE event to celebrate this anniversary started yesterday and ended today. At the end I was continously awake around 23 hours as I didn't want to miss any part of the event and had to arrive to Stuttgart in the morning first. Tackat wrote a nice report about the whole day.

Kickoff: Talk, Web Page, Source Code

Yesterday, on the second conference day of aKademy 2006, the Kickoff talk was given by Coolo. It was well attended and received. Many questions afterwards including if simple calculations in the search line work like in mini cli (yes, they do). I took some few photos of the talk. It was video-taped like all others talks and will be available for download later.

aKademy / Ireland

Some random thoughts, if you want coverage of the talks happening here: Planet KDE has many impressions. I have never seen so many people being interested in golf. The Ryder Cup is visible everywhere in the town, on many advertizing spaces, on all TVs in the pubs. It looks btw like Europe will win against USA (again). The weather, as cold and moistly as weather forecast predicted. I guess the real challenge in Golf is to play with rain and hurricane left-overs noticeable.

The KDE Team and Friends are Leaving SUSE...

...and are on the way to Dublin's aKademy 2006 to "shape the future of the free desktop". :-) My last count resulted in 9 Novell/SUSE employees attending, 4 talks of and 2 BoFs with them. Another not so nice "nine": likely rain on all 9 days which I will be in Dublin. :-(

aKademy 2006 Keysigning Party

Wondered this morning why there is no GPG/PGP keysigning scheduled for next week's akademy 2006. Obviously it was forgotten, so after a quick query with the organization team about a free time slot I just posted this to akademy-announce:

You may think that I have blogged about every KDE-related openSUSE build service project by now. Not quite yet. :-)
