A new version of Install-Sendmail which fixes a bug for those of you serving mail to a network. I also did a lot of work on the interface, based on work done by Morten Bo Johansen. There’s also a Danish translation created by Morten as well. His work is based on the last release but I’ve fixed the bug in it to bump it up to the current release version.
Want Install-Sendmail to have a GUI? Vote down below for your favourite toolkit, Gtk/KDE/TclTk/Curses.
Did anyone manage to compile the LameOver Linux Demo Project? I tried, even installed mikmod, but to no avail. I didn’t try too hard though. Not enough time..

I’ve got some great feedback on Install-Sendmail, including a full Danish conversion of the latest version by Morten Bo Johansen! He’ll be putting it on his own site soon, and I’ll put it up here in the next day or so.
I kept stats for the last few weeks and these are the best referers I’ve tracked:

  1. Freshmeat – 1576
  2. Linuxberg – 196
  3. Redhat – 137
  4. Webwatcher – 91
  5. Linux.ie – 90
  6. Root.cz – 55
  7. Tunelinux – 52
  8. Linux.box – 30
  9. http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~conradp/linux/ – 12
  10. Demo Scene Webring – 11
  11. Linuxlinks – 9
  12. Linux-Center – 9
  13. Altavista – 9
  14. Linux.inkh.net – 7
  15. Linuxapps – 7
  16. Linux Gazette – 5
  17. Alans Information Center – 4

Want the perl script that got that information? Mail me and tell me you’re interested and I’ll make a tar.gz of it and put it up here. It consists of a perl script that grabs the referer to a file and another perl script which parses that file.

I was in a local college today, University College Cork, when I sat down at a PC and turned on the monitor to be greeted by the KDE welcome screen! Turns out they’re using Suse/KDE as a dual boot with NT. There were two girls using KDE in the front row so I couldn’t resist. I asked them how they found Linux and they said they were very impressed, that it was stable, and even easier than Windows to use!
I just wish the college I attended woke up and replaced some of their NT machines. *grrr*
More bugs and side effects fixed in Install-Sendmail. Get the latest version if you’ve had trouble with it.
I got a patch for version 4.2 but that will have to wait ’till the next version. It’s a patch to get things working on a FreeBSD system.

Nothing much new as far as content goes. I updated the software pages with some info on Install-Sendmail as well as sites offering free email services.
I also redesigned the site a small bit. Better? I’d like to hear what you think.
Finally, I’m going to do some work on converting TSN to PHP3 from Perl. There seems to be quite a few people interested in it..

Almost a month later I update.
A new version of Install-sendmail is written. I added virtual user/domain support although I haven’t been able to test it myself. Feedback required!
There’s also another Linux demo out. It’s called eft and I don’t have a URL at the moment, but you can get it off scene.org.
It’s a mainly 2d affair with nothing new or ground breaking 🙁
It runs in RedHat 5.2 so not sure about older distributions.

The last time I felt like appl …

The last time I felt like applauding a demo was after I watched “Incoming Future” by Gods a few weeks back. Now it’s happened again. Gods released another demo. It’s called Toys and Gods attempted to “improve cinematic engagement in the demo scene” with this demo.
It shows too. They use ripped music from films to build a real cinema feel with smart use of cuts and synchronised effects.
Be warned though, this demo requires a 3d card. I wouldn’t run it on less than a P200+3dfx either.. It’s also only available for Windows, but it’s worth booting into Windows just to watch this demo!
Saw this announcement on The PC Demo Fan Club 4.0.
Gods homepage is at WWW.IDF.NET/GODS
Jumpy, the demo I mentioned earlier didn’t work on my RedHat 5.2 system. These are the libraries required to run it:

libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x40007000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x40014000)
libstdc++.so.27 => not found
libg++.so.27 => not found
libc.so.5 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x400ac000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.1 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00000000)
