Mplayer with GCC 4.3.3 on B112

Hi,

So I've been getting the really annoying Mplayer not built with correct gcc error messages.

I bit the bullet this morning and used the SFEgcc.spec to built GCC 4.3.3

dclack@os-asus ~] /usr/gnu/bin/gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.3.3
Copyright (C) 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO

Finally no more errors when playing in Mplayer.

I've found a way to convert DVD's to m4v format for my iTouch, I can now play them on B112 as well.

Rhythmbox 1.12.1 and Ipod on Nevada B112

Hi All,

 So I took a break from "Real Work", did a little building.

Rhythmbox 1.12.1 with radio and ipod support.

Apart from the fact I don't want to hack my iTouch so it would mount up on OpenSolaris, the little Nano mounts up and gnome fires up Rythmbox automatically, I can play any of the sonds on the iPod.

The internet radio works really well.

I keep thinking about the iTouch OS 3.0 that I could hack onto it, I'll wait for the official 3.0 and pay the $9.95, somethings you just don't want to hack.

I finally got mplayer to build from the SFEmplayer.spec file, I'm playing the m4v movies I built for my iTouch on the gnome desktop, pretty cool.

I rebuilt Python 2.4.5 so I could build gnome hearts, my system performance has increased dramatically.

I installed VB 2.2.2, Windows XP and Windows 7 do come up faster from saved state, Ubuntu is so fast if you blink you miss it.

I've got the Intel Moblin installed in VB also, it's a fast booter :-)

I did upgrade my HTC phone to Windows Mobile 6.1, I hate those guys, it's really good stuff.

I did HCL the dual core motherboard, no issues at all with Solaris 10 X86 u6. Passed the HCL first time.

Installing Autoscan Network on OpenSolaris

Hi All,

 So I'm working on building a packaged version of Autoscan Network.

Currently you need to download the source bz2 file from: http://kb7sqi.com/opensolaris/

1. gtar xvfj autoscan-tom-1.42.tar.bz2

2. cd autoscan-network-1.42

3. gmake

4. gmake install

5. autoscan-network-daemon should now be running

6. autoscan-network should show up in the Internet applications

7. Follow the autoscan network setup GUI

Gnome system monitor 2.26 on OpenSolaris B110

Hi All,

So I've been waiting for this for a long time, thanks to the gnome engineering team we finally have what Ubuntu and Fedora has Gnome System Monitir above 2.18.2, not there fault, our compilers had some issues.

I usually do a pull from the OpenSolaris gnome trunk every week

svn co svn+ssh://anon@svn.opensolaris.org/svn/jds/spec-files/trunk

Last night I found we had updated gnome system monitor to 2.26, I had to build glib 2.20.0, libgtop 2.26 and gnome-system-monitor 2.26.0.

Not that it did not have any compile issues but it was worth it, these screenshots are of the AA1 10 inch.
