I needed to edit the file associations on the pocketpc so that a click on jpg files would load it into a graphic viewer. A quick search on google and I discovered that PocketTweak would do the job for me. Although its not a fully fledged registry editor (Rescoe’s one is trial ware and PHM’s registry editor wouldn’t load on the pocketpc)

Kristen has just watched Brother Bear on dvd. I spent the entire time catching up on my rss feeds. After she finished the film, she realised that the canadian moose provide a commentary for the film which we are now watching/listening to. It’s really funny and the best thing is that I don’t need to watch the screen – I can just listen to it.
Saw a mag with mandrake 10 on it in WHSmiths, so purchased it to upgrade….bad decision! At least in september I was able to get Mandrake on the laptop but this time its installed and working – but not in a gui interface (and the wifi card still doesn’t work). When I try to run startx I get “failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module”. The weird thing is that there is a nice 10 with a star logo in the right hand side of the screen, and it is using a graphical logo to boot up……
Update Turns out I needed to install the latest driver, so a wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-5336/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run downloaded the file.
Then a sh NVIDIA…..run complained it couldn’t find a kernel and that I needed it compiled or something BUT I didn’t have the kernel sources loaded.
rpm on kernel-source said that I needed gcc and a few more dependencies loaded.
Once I had loaded them all, ncurses, gcc, nlibsomethingorother I was then able to startx and get a graphical screen! Talk about complicated!
Kristen’s sister-in-law gave birth to a healthy 5lb and 14oz baby girl at 1am this morning, red curly hair and blue eyes. So we are now an Aunt and Uncle!
