gnulabels? You mean glabels? It's there in 10000 under Office in the menu. What else are you interested in? I just noticed gtkpod disappeared so I added it to the repository.

P.S. For gtkpodders out there, I had to run a script called rescan-scsi-bus.sh (find in google) to get the iPod working in 10k.

I can't wait for 10001, how is it going and what's the eta? :D
I messed up my 10000 install and decided to try Suse again (I bought it before I'd tried Blag), I can't fix a few of the bugs in Suse so I am comming back to Blag FOR GOOD :lol: and I thought I'd wait for the new version before formatting and starting again.

ETA? Well...

It's pretty close to ready. I'm waiting for Dag to make kernel-module-* for the 2.4.22-2197 errata kernel (the most recent FC1 kernel release). I've emailed him about it, but he's a tad busy right now. Matthias (freshrpms) just did the 2197 modules for alsa. Also there's a couple icons here & there.

Anything you particularily like(d) about SUSE that could be rolled into blag?

blagCanyon will remain the default desktop in 10kX. Bluecurve does come with BLAG though. You can just change your theme and you'll get the stock bluecurve.

Jason, pico is usually a part of pine, which has been dropped by a number of distros due to licensing issues.

BLAG has nano in it, which is quite similar to pico. Lightweight and intuitve.

Ah thanks for the tip. I didn't know that. Duh Jason!

Regarding Suse, the only good thing I found was a Live CD :) I am guessing BLAG is a no go on that front. However some antiMac people no longer want their old Macs. So the question I ask is do we still have a Mac version of BLAG?

Well, its possible if someone wants to whip one up. I suggest dynebolic for live cd:

I did a pretty ancient version of PPC-BLAG as sort of a test/experiment. Its not available anymore... I don't have any plans to do a PPC version at the moment. There are folks working on Fedora-PPC and there's yellowdog of course. Dag, freshrpms, etc. don't do PPC versions either. Basically, it would take installing Fedora-PPC/YDL, and taking all the *blag*, *dag*, *.fr.* SRPMS and rpmbuilding them.

Actually, I now see (& remember) that freshrpms has builds for yellowdog 3 (PPC).

Suse has a few nice touches. I find as a newbie to linux that YaST is very good, having all the settings in one place with an easy to follow graphical interface makes life easier (thats the windows user in me I suppose :) ). I like the Suse Watcher as well (a tool that sits on the taskbar and alerts you when there are new updates).
I didn't get a chance to try my digital camera with Blag, but the package used in Suse for getting photos off your camera is great, it's called Digikam. I will make a comparison when I put Blag back on my PC later next week (I've had enough of scratchy audio and xine crashing :( ).

Well, it's still at the same status as before. I guess when you see a file with the number "2197" in the filename at:
http://dag.wieers.com/packages/kernel-m ... iswrapper/

then the ball is back in my court. ;)

I'm also posting tidbits to my blog http://jebba.blagblagblag.org/

rezound was in blag 8k era. I yanked it as it was taking lots of space. Well, rezound itself wasn't big, but it required some other libraries that only it needed.

I also think that audacity is much better, but I haven't looked at rezound in awhile.
