KDE 4.2.85 (KDE 4.3 Beta 1)

Yesterday Rex Dieter announced the landing of KDE 4.2.85 in kde-redhat/unstable for Fedora 11 (Fedora 10 coming soon).  Since I like to live on the bleeding edge, I decided to give it a try. Installing it was fairly easy. You just have to make sure that you’ve got the kde-redhat repositories installed and that the […]

Yesterday was a really nice day

I had a day off due to the Easter holidays. The weather was excellent. That gave me some space to play with kdesvn-build to have a go at KDE 4.3 (while compiling, I was outside having a beer). Surprisingly after some rebuilds because of missing dependencies, I managed to have it almost fully, and more […]

Fedora 11 countdown counter part 2

Usually I’m not fond of posting blog entry’s so close to each other, although nicu has kindly pointed out to me that there is an official Fedora countdown counter (https://fedoraproject.org/en/counter). I didn’t realize it existed until it got pointed out (well I knew about it, although my enthusiasm beat me to it). He also pointed […]

Fedora 11 countdown counter

I just got a little bored and I decided to make myself a little bit more useful by creating a Fedora 11 countdown counter. Just for the heck of it. =) It’s a small script that counts towards the (current) official release date of Fedora 11, 05-29-2009. It’s written in PHP and uses a customized […]

Hello planet!

Hello Planet, Here’s a short introduction to who I am. (I’m not a man of many words. ;)) I’m Eelko Berkenpies, 25/M/The Netherlands. I’m a Fedora / KDE / Amarok enthusiast and therefor my posts would be mostly about one of those. Recently I became a co-maintainer for taglib-extras, a new requirement for the upcoming […]

rekonq 0.0.4 rpm (packaging continues)

I bumped into a neat little browser for KDE called “rekonq”. It’s a browser designed for WebKit and KDE and it’s light weight, all big pluses for me. I like fast little browsers which just do what they are supposed to do (browse the web as fast as possible) like midori and Arora. Although I […]

CTRL – ALT – Backspace

Here’s a little tip for users that upgrade from Fedora 10 to Rawhide and like to make use of the CTRL – ALT – Backspace combo. Due to a change in Xorg, the combination doesn’t work by default anymore. You have to override it manually by adding the following lines to your xorg.conf file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf): […]

The real Fluffy Bunny author stood up!

Florian Schepper has shared his work in my call for the original author of the Fluffy Bunny theme. I immediately got in touch with him, asking his permission to distribute it again since it virtually disappeared off the internet. And with luck I must say, the same evening I was able to wrap up a […]
