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): […]

Will the real author of the Fluffy Bunny plasma theme please stand up?

A while ago I saw some screenshots of a very hilarious KDE Plasma theme called Fluffy Bunny. I haven’t been able to find out who created it, I only found some packages for openSuse with no author attached to it. I find this theme so horribly wrong that it’s actually fun to use. The theme […]

Amarok and KDevelop

As of today I created 2 new pages about Amarok 2 SVN and KDevelop 4 since I want this blog to be more then writing about these two. 🙂 So from now on, keep an eye on those pages for updates and when something really important happens, you will know it anyway. The KDevelop page […]

Building RPM’S and Amarok 2 SVN RPM

[edit] Some of the Amarok developers kindly pointed out that this is just a SVN snapshot version. That means it’s not called 2.1 until a feature freeze. Till that time I will be referring to it as “Amarok 2 SVN snapshot”. As of yesterday I decided to give RPM building a try. So here’s what […]

Amarok 2.1

I’ve always liked bleeding edge software. Besides the fact that I’m running the latest KDE-RedHat packages (currently KDE 4.1.96 / 4.2 RC1) I am using the SVN version of Amarok 2. Since a few days they switched to a new trunk containing the upcoming version 2.1 and I must say it’s looking pretty damn sweet […]

A journey into open-source software

Yup, yet another attempt at a blog. This time about open-source software and related topics. As of this weekend I’m officially running a dual boot machine at home (Fedora 10 -KDE 4.2 beta 2 / Windows XP). At work I’ve been using Fedora for a while now due to some sort of company policy (I […]
