Discussions about Anime, Manga, Pets, SciFi, ... and of course my personal opinion on everything I can be bothered to write about :D

ati-support ..

i reported the issues with my gfx card to ati a couple of days ago. (the driver patch ones, but the crash on x startup and wine game display errors).
no answer so far. lets see if anything happens at all..

On another note i only got like 3 days left to work at my current employers ;)

HP Pavillion tx 2550eg & Gentoo

I reported some bugs on gentoo bugzilla. Will still write a page/blog/wiki about the whole thing but if someone is looking for info now .. there it goes:

linux kernel 2.6.27(rc7) smp function changes + patches for ati-drivers
ati-drivers-8.532 - catalyst 8.9 crash

Touchscreen and stylus working - yay

Finally got the touchscreen and Stylus to work (duno about eraser part but that's not that important to me ;))
I had to install linux-2.6.27-rc7 for this to work. for some reason this gives me a total of 11 /dev/input/event* devices instead of the total of 5 before but whatever it works.
One other reason why I tried the kernel was cuz I wanted to use both cores of my CPU (2.6.26-gentoo-r7 didn't detect the 2nd core - I checked out the kernel source and it had to do with some bios(?) cpu map ... ) and to have ACPI working as well :)

Got a HP Pavilion tx2550 toucscreen / tablet laptop ;)

Got a new laptop ;) a HP Pavilion tx2550eg touchscreen laptop / tablet pc.

Progress so far:
ACPI does not work
ati-drivers (closed source) working with xorg-server <=1.5.0 only (1.5.0 is xorg 7.4 which is not supported yet) currently running xorg-server 1.4.2
sound is intel hda which only works so far with model=acer (auto does give mixer, but no sound) unfortunately it does not disable speakers when plugging in a headset (chipset is ALC268)
onboard lan RealTek 8169 (module r8169) working.

Aninite 2008 over, bought Guitar Hero On Tour (Nintendo DS)

Was at Aninite 2008 this weekend. Was good fun - not the same as Animagic, but that's a completely different 'size' of convention :)
I'll post some photos and/or videos at some point soon (I hope ;))

Again (actually - yeah) sold some stuff on ebay, deciding on furniture,.. for new flat

Actually sold more stuff on ebay yeah :D
Apart from that there's hardly anything interesting to write apart from the fact that we r choosing some furniture,.. for our new flat (which isn't just ready to move in yet ^_^

Not much news except that i'm selling some stuff on ebay ;)

Not really anything interesting to write here except that i'm selling some anime on ebay(.at) just search for username lordvan1701 ;)

Been really hot lately ... and unfortunately the air conditioning in the office can't cope with it either (even though it's a brand new building .. sucks ..)

Nightwish Concert over

Wrote a little review of the concert on Last FM here's a link.

Busy weekend (Birthday party, Galactic Friendship Meeting, COMIC&FIGUREN-BÖRSE

Had a quite busy weekend and (something to blog I guess).
Friday was a surprise birthday celebration for a good friend's girlfriend in the Culture X Club. We 'only' stayed until 01:00 there though - even though it went on until like 03:00 :)

WoW working again on my 2nd (older pc), GF Meeting and misc stuffs

Finally had time to fix my older PC again and can play WoW on it again so now my wife and me can play at the same time again - also means that I'm finally playing again after what was more-or-less a 3 month (or so) break.
Also took the ferrets out in the garden yesterday for nearly 1 hour ;) that was quite fun. Maybe I'll post some pics later .. they've been really naked afterwards :)
