Cliff's List Filter - May 19 - 25

Author: Ian Palmer

Welcome once again to this week's filtering of news, announcements, tips and patches from the Linux, GNOME, KDE and Mozilla circles. There was lots to cover this week, including a new Megaraid driver, a Voodoo3 TV-IN driver for Linux 2.6, and progress on the Win32 port for GnomeMeeting. Speaking of GnomeMeeting, it looks like a name change may be in its future. Read on for the news, and if you feel there are other areas of interest we could be covering, please drop us a line and let us know.

  • Has Mozilla or Thunderbird suddenly forgotten all of your user settings, and is now treating you like a new user. Chances are your profile just needs a rescue.
