suse 11.1 on samsung r40

increasingly fed up with the flakiness of xorg on the Samsung R 40 laptop with my ubuntu 9.04. Constantly had to reboot using the rescue mode.

Notes for using suse 11.1 with KDE:

  1. Imagemagick is installed by default
  2. Touchfreeze is a possible solution to the ‘cursor jumping whilst typing’ problem, although see this forum post desribing how to use syndaemon
  3. Add the comunity based repos, especially the xxxman one
  4. Mythtv frontend can be called from YaST2
  5. DVD playback is an issue

Meeting with Prime Minister

Gordon Brown come to Worksop’s Valley School and I long with about 40 other people representing the community sat around tables, discussed and asked questions.

Here’s a report on what he said (though I didn’t hear him say some of these things!) Perhaps he said them at another part of the meeting(?), or perhaps this is what his speech writer meant for him to say! Nevertheless he spoke well I thought.
