Introducing vcamera, a virtual V4L2 camera.
Body

This is a kernel module I cooked in a couple of days. The idea is to expose a v4l device that gets its data from user space.

I had 2 use cases in mind:
1) Educational purpose for myself (I'm really a kernel noob).
2) Streaming movies over skype, google talk, ... etc.

The idea could be good or completely rubbish but hey ? Learning can only be done with stupid ideas!

The code is highly unstable. It shouldn't oops the kernel but I'm not responsible. I've been developing and testing it inside qemu.

MMS support development to be suspended until the end of February.

Body

The gitorious repository now contains a broken mms-manager, a non functional mms-ui (because I changed the DBus interface ;-)), a preliminary mms viewer and a broken network connection manager. How pretty is that ? ;-)

I've been redesigning the DBus interfaces and I think I reached something. The UI can be easily adapted after that.

However, I'll be on vacation until the end of February. I can't work on mms until I'm back.

I'll try to commit and push the code I have on my laptop but the stuff will still be broken.

Bye fglrx...

Body

Thanks to all the hard work by the fglrx packaging team, DRI, MESA, Xorg, Radeon,... etc people!

I've been using fglrx with my laptop since I've had it:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X1400

And to the people behind the Debian packaging..
* xserver-xorg-video-radeon from testing.
* libdrm-intel1 and libdrm2 from unstable
* libgl1-mesa-dri and libgl1-mesa-glx from experimental

Katoob, the baby has a new father.

Body

This post has a bit of my history and emotions. It can be skipped!

The summary is: Katoob has a new maintainer.

...

Yes, a long time.

Back in 2002, Gtk 2.x was just released. Efforts were spent porting, rewriting and redesigning parts of GNOME. The aim was GNOME 2.0 and later on 2.x

Dear Hebrew maemo users...

Body

I'm getting a lot of questions on how to enable Hebrew under maemo. I know that the fonts have been packaged already and I guess there's also an input method. It's as easy as writing an XML file for my not so broken Hildon Arabic input method.

I just don't understand why can't they be made available publicly or made known ?
