Which operating system?

Hello you, reader of this blog, nice to meet you. ;-)

Today I thought the whole evening about an operating system I could use on my new x86.
And I have got only a few wishes on my lists.

It shouldn't be:

  • Windows(tm)
  • Linux(tm)
  • GNU/Hurd
  • Minix
  • OpenBSD
  • Slowaris

But it should:

  • run on a x86 architecture
  • have got the gcc (version doesn't matter)
  • run without a GUI (so good bye native MacOS)
  • be POSIX conform

So I thought of:

This could be very difficult. FreeBSD is just another *nix distribution, and I don't want to go on this way...
SchilliX sounds not too bad to me, but if you have got a look at the history, the development seems to be frozen.
Nexenta OS is a mix of the Debian system (with the GNUtils) and the OpenSolaris kernel, so you try another way, but you can keep the whole GNU experience(s).

I think I should give Nexenta OS a try. More news about this topic soon....
Good night.

The other thing I want to tell you quickly is about a really funny page - There you can go and do the test - it's really fun and it has got awesome questions. ;-)

My computer geek score is greater than 86% of all people in the world! How do you compare?

Hard disc crashes

Hello out there.... today is some of these days... I shouldn't do anything today anymore. But okay, one minute left, then it's 2morrow. :-)

If you don't find me today or 2morrow online, it's why _now_ my hard disc crashes at my router.
Quote from its dmesg:

      hda: no DRQ after issuing MULTWRITE
      hda: status error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
      hda: status error: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
      hda: no DRQ after issuing WRITE
      ide0: reset: success
      hda: lost interrupt

So say good bye to this hard disc. :-( I need to go out and buy a new one... but the best thing ever: I have got full hard-disc images! YEAH!

So have a nice night and see you all hopefully soon. ;-)
. o O ( Don't wait with the dinner for me, Mum )


Almost forgotten: Nice Valentine's day to all! (Have a look at Savannah and found out how sweet Valentine's day could be in the GNU family.

Blog design

Since today we (Pascal Fricke and I) work on the new design of this blog. I re-wrote some css styles and tried to modify a great picture, which I found in the WikiCommons.

You can see on the picture the "northern arm of the Don Pedro Lake (seen from Hwy 120)" (California).
Thanks to Luzian Wild to provide for this panoramic view free usage under the terms of the GNU FDL or Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 license.

Thanks also to Pascal Fricke for his help with the text layers on top of the picture.

Update [2006-02-05]: Pascal modified the picture to fit all of my dreams. ;-) Now the blog has got a wonderfull banner. Hopefully you enjoy it, too!
And many thanks to Pascal!


Update [2006-09-12]: Since today this blog uses also some icons next to the titles. I use the Noia icon theme for KDE 3.x for this, because it looks awesome. :-) It was releases under the terms of the LGPL versions 2.1 or any later.


Update [2006-09-18]: For more information have an additional look at the LICENSES file. Thanks!
