You can now view almost all the content from my old site, DemoNix here. There’s a few months missing from 1999 I think, but thanks to backups on CD and the Wayback Machine I have most of it resurrected!
Lots of things have been happening lately. Along with Owen Kelly, and CorkLUG I’m organising “Linux Awareness in Ireland Day” which will take place on November 6th. More info on the CorkLUG site or LAID site.
There’s also a new release of Install-Sendmail. This release fixes a small bug in detecting Slackware systems. If you run anything else don’t bother downloading this one.
Well, I’m off to France on Thursday morning. We’re heading to Paris but not sure exactly where after that. If you’d like to get in touch email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
There’s quite a bit of demoscene news on linux.scene.org but they don’t have the news that the only Linux demo to appear at Assembly ’99 is available for download! Get it at ftp://kameli.yok.utu.fi/pub/fit/anataus6/ana6.tgz
It works on my RedHat 6 system, and ldd reports the binary isn’t a dynamic executable so it’ll probably run on most modern Linux distributions.
New version of Install-Sendmail! This one asks you how long to wait to send waiting mail (only if not queuing!), as well as a few bug fixes.
More languages are supported now, 8 in total!
I had a go at Kingpin tonight in Linux. Sort of slow really, even though I have a TNT card it didn’t seem to make much of an impact. Looked like 2 fps!
3 new languages for Install-sendmail. French, Germand and Spanish.
This version is almost exactly the same as the previous one except for the new languages.
New version of Install-Sendmail. This version fixes the previously mentioned
bug – it’s not even my bug, but a feature of RedHat based systems. See the
CHANGES file for details. I’ve also improved support for different languages so
if you want to create a version for your country please feel free to
There’s a bug in the server setup of Install-Sendmail that doesn’t let remote
machines connect to your machine as a mail server. I have a fix for it and I’ll
post a new version of the script next weekend.
There is now a German translation of Install-Sendmail, created by Juergen Ginkel.
I haven’t tried it yet, but I think a new way of seperating out languages is called for. Expect a new release of the script soon to meet this requirement and fix some minor bugs.
My apologies to anyone who hasn’t got a reply back to emails they’ve sent. My machine broke down last Thursday, and I’ve also been very busy helping to get a local LUG off the ground. Check out the CorkLUG homepage for more details.
Check out the official home of the Danish translation of Install-Sendmail. Thanks Morten!
