KDE 4 translation

I have finally started translating KDE. That was my wish for a long time. But now I have the time to do it. I want to put Slovenian translation team, into first 20 🙂 ( we’re 27th now). It’s quite easy to translate. First you download a file. Then you put it through SMART. Then you diff the file from SMART with the original file, and for the last part, you go through the file in text editor, to select one of multiple SMART translations and to remove, text added by SMART.

Installing Leadteak Winfast 2000 XP in Linux(Gentoo)

I decided that I should buy TV Tuner card. First I have done some googling, which ones are well supported under Linux. I found out that Hauppauge WinTV PVR-150 is good supported and even has a hardware encoder. I decided I should buy it. But then I found out that in Slovenia it is impossible to get it. I googled for more informations about the card and found out, that it can be only used with PVR programs like Mythtv and Freevo and I would like to watch TV with normal programs like, tvtime, kdetv and Xawtv too. So then I googled for different card and found Leadteak Winfast 2000 XP, which can be bought in Slovenia.

I have bought it and now the interesting part starts. First howto install it. Physically was not a problem, and then start of a system. CD to kernel source, I have choosen the right modules, recompiled the kernel and loaded the modules. Then I have started TVtime, First I have to choose which system should Tvtime use. I knew only that Slovenia uses Pal, but then there war at least 4 PAL options. I have chosen one and searched for channels. None of the channels had good picture. I tried with other programs and it was the same. Googled a lot but found nothing. When it was 3 AM I went to bed. In the morning I have brought TV from the living room and connect it to the cable. The picture was equally bad. What a relief, so the TV card must be fine installed. I then brought the PC to Living room to connect it directly to the cable and there the picture was fine. I have found out that here in SLovenia we use PAL-I at least there the frequencies are the same as in the paper we got from the cable provider. But strangely on PAL-N the picture is sometimes better on the same channel. When we moved cable a little the picture was good in my room to, and even the sound is working. Now the only thing left to do is the remote control. Because now only number buttons and Enter works.

I have tried to load lirc module and the problem is it looks for driver bttv for the TV card, but my card uses driver cx88xx, because chips were changed. Maybe even remote will work after some fidling.

Bad day

Today was a very bad day. It started quite normal. I went to bed at three o'clock AM, because I was finishing school webpage. I got up at 7:45 and turned on computer. Webpage worked as normal and everything was OK. Then it was time to me to go to school and I zipped everything in the folder "expandable-meni". Everything seemed ok. Then I closed Kate and logoff. Then I went to school. In the school I opened webpage from my home computer and it showed errors that php/functions was not found. WTF? I thought. Then I SSHed to home computer and cd-ed to expandable-meni where I did ls folder. Folder php didn't existed.

Laptop

I tried to install MS DOS on my Laptop, but it didn't find the disk. Then i tried with FreeDOS and it didn't find the disk too. It seems that something is wrong with it. I took the disk out from the laptop clean it and put it back, but still there is no OS that could find the disk. And I thought that I was so close, but now I am so far away. 😦

New Laptop

I have got new laptop from my grandfather. It has 60 MB harddisk and 3 MB of RAM. It's Hyundai Neuron with black & white screen. My new hyundai laptop

I am now trying to put Linux on it. But all installations untill now are failed.

I tried with Mulinux and it has booted, but after framebuffer nothing more happened. I tried with Smallinux but after loading of kernel some strange characters started floating on the screen. Seems like my laptop would like to play in Matrix movie. Now I have tried with ELKS, and I got to the login prompt, but the password and username is uknown to me.

If I don't manage to install Linux I will try with something other, like OS/2, BSD. Anythink that can run VIM. 🙂 Any suggestions?

UPDATE: login is root and no password. I had to connect my PC keyboard to laptop because some keys don't have any feedback in elks. Linux can be put on laptop. Horray. 🙂
I'll keep you updated.
