Cliff's List Filter - Aug 3-9

Author: Ian Palmer

Welcome again to the usual helping of news, tips and patches from the open source mailing lists. This week: 2 penguins are better than one...Linux 2.6.8-rc3 is released as well as the final version of 2.4.27; several patches that will hopefully improve Nautilus stability for GNOME desktops; a few new software releases for KDE; and a reminder to update your Mozilla software due to a critical security bug that was found this week.

Linux Kernel



  • amaroK v1.0.2, an audio player for the KDE desktop, was released on August 6. New in this version is support for the XINE audio engine.
  • KNetworkConf v0.6 was released on August 7. It is a module for the KDE control center which is used to configure network devices and settings.
  • KDE users who have compiled Akode with a version of libltdl installed may be experiencing problem playing Ogg files. Recompiling Akode with libltdl disabled should solve this problem.
