Good Morning Build 75

Build 75 is now installed on enoexec one of our SPARC servers which means I can now use the latest and greatest build and not run thunderbird remotely. The reason I had to run a remote thunderbird when using x86 is due to thunderbird keeping it's extensions in your home directory but without taking into account the architecture of the extenstion. IE they all go in ~/.thunderbird/\*.default/extensions. If you install an extension for SPARC that clearly won't work on x86 and visa versa. I filed bug 6613224 for this.

Anyway I am now back on a SPARC system.

: enoexec.eu FSS 1 $; uname -a
SunOS enoexec 5.11 snv_75 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
: enoexec.eu FSS 2 $;

The only problem so far is that pidgin is unable to join any rooms that have the auto-join property set. Curiously this bug was seen when pdigin was called gaim but went away when it was renamed. Again a bug has been filed: 6617918 (it is not in bugs.opensolaris.org at the time of writing but should turn up there soon)

Comments:

Pidgin also has the funny bug whereby hovering over a contact shows another contact's details. This has been fixed in more recent Pidgin install on Ubuntu, so I guess this is fixed upstream.

You (sh)could just use Evolution. A proper mail client ;)
