kdevelop3 on opensuse 11.2

Friday, November 27th, 2009

I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on my netbook. There’s a lot of great new features like KDE 4.3, much better kernel 2.6.31 support for Intel Graphics and the Atheros wifi, but also good things disappear from the distro like some good working old kde3 applications. KDevelop3 is still a favorite for my daily work. However kdevelop4 is there, it is still having bugs and lacking functionality and not in a final release. I still want to work with KDevelop3. Well, it’s quite easy to fix that.

T-Mobile HSPA met linux (OpenSUSE kppp)

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

Onlangs heb ik een T-Mobile data abonnement afgesloten, zodat ik ook onderweg nutteloze dingen op internet kan doen. Een USB stick met een modem is bijgeleverd die in de laptop geprikt kan worden.


De vraag is natuurlijk hoe dit werkend te krijgen onder Linux. Er zou een programma bij zitten die gebruikt kon worden, maar die heb ik niet gevonden tot nog toe. Met pppd en de KDE gui kppp werkt het echter ook prima.

Three Laptops

For a few years I have been working with a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. A nice one, but heavy and huge and the machine started to get ramshackle and having more and more serious problems, like a bad battery, unexpected fallouts and display backlight problems. Therefore I decided to buy a new laptop so I can still work in the train.
My attention felt on the new series of netbooks. Nice small laptops of only about one kilogram, I could easily take with me when traveling, instead of the almost 3kg Toshiba brick I was used to.
