Busy, Busy

While I haven’t updated my blog much recently, you may have noticed I’ve been pretty busy…
I got XFree86 moved to stable, and got a number of X.org releases out (the most recent includes the 6.8.1 security fixes, and should interoperate nicely dependency-wise with other X11’s as far as upgrading, as well as fix some headers that broke gnome).
I’ve been making headway on KDE. Everything’s pretty solid except kdevelop and koffice (1.3.3 just got sent to packagers, I’m working on that). I’ll let you know when there’s more of interest.
I also packaged a few interesting things… gnomoradio, an independent music rating/listening system, as well as applex11tools, a package to let you install XFree86 or X.org and still use Apple’s X11.app and quartz-wm (in fact, you can run XDarwin.app and X11.app simultaneously if you tell XDarwin to start on display 1. Nutty!)
Another big thing I just released was a ton of java updates, including new Fink support for doing some tricks to set JAVA_HOME when building packages. tomcat4 is finally in 10.2-gcc3.3 and 10.3. Yay!
I guess that’s it for now. Until next time, signing off. =)

    commons-httpclient build is busted
    [javac] /sw/src/commons-httpclient-2.0.1-1/commons-httpclient-2.0.1/src/java/org/apache/commons/httpclient/NTLM.java:38: cannot resolve symbol
    [javac] symbol : class BadPaddingException
    [javac] location: package crypto
    [javac] import javax.crypto.BadPaddingException;
    [javac] ^
    There’s something in your blog entry about JAVA_HOME. Is this needed for this or is this another problem? This is similar to the problems I was having building some of the commons stuf last month.
