I'm trying to upgrade my qt 4.3 to 4.5. Version 4.5 seems to be split up in several ebuils, one of which is qt-dbus. When trying to install qt-dbus, it says that the files conflict with qt-4.3. This is only normal, because in version 4.3, the files did belong to qt.

I always thought I had portage's compile cache enabled, but upon recent inspection, it appears that I didn't. What was missing, was the package dev-util/ccache. I also increased the cache size to 2 GB, as per the Gentoo documentation.

My spamassassin updates daily by running sa-update. Recently, I've been getting failure notices that mirror spamassassin.kluge.net was no longer available. This was because of a known bug, apparantly. So, I deleted the MIRROR.BY file and ran sa-update again.

I wanted the dates on my Kubuntu system to be shown as Dutch dates. Therefore, I needed to add a locale. The place to do it is in /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local. It now contains this:

When I got the Wireless working on this laptop (a Lenovo T61), I was using Linux kernel 2.6.25. I remember that it was quite a pain, because the iwlwifi stuff had only just stabilized enough to replace the (now deprecated) ipw stuff. One of the things I didn't get working at the time was Monitor mode.

When AdSense runs out of inspiration (i.e.: no targeted ads are available), it displays public service ads by default. You can choose to replace this with a custom ad of your own choosing. To do this, you have to put a HTML page somewhere and change the alternate ads settings for the appropriate ad unit:

Previously, I tried obtaining a full Atom feed without pagination from WordPress. I didn't succeed, so I ended up writing an XSL transformation which merges all the pages of this Atom feed into one valid Atom XML stream.

I hate modules, especially core modules. I prefer code to be tightly integrated. I want it to work together. Is that too much to ask? In Drupal, most functionality has been stuffed in modules. There's a Locale module, a Content Translation module and a Path module. What's missing is a Working Together module.

This Gentoo box needs upgrading badly. I started this in February, so perhaps it's time to continue.
