Slow update…

Yes I know, it’s been a while since my last post. Real life really drained my spare time. Jika ada waktu luang sedikit aku pergunakan untuk istirahat. So I rarely touch my project and doing some fun with linux. But I do watching the progress on the OS world.

My last activities on linux would be My Media System. It’s a lightweight multimedia front end that really fit my need. I try to make a package for Puppy Linux because AFAIK there’s no multimedia front end for it. It depend on Alsa Player for music playing and MPlayer or Xine for the movies. So the first step would be making package for Alsa Player since there’s none that I aware of. It’s really easy since there’s a Slackware package for it. I just convert it to pet package. You can look my post on Puppy forum here. Don’t be confused since I post it under my old nickname.

There’s a Mplayer package and Xine is included by default on Puppy. Because there’s no MMS package on Slackware so I have to compiled manually ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m successfully making a Puppy package on second attempt but I can replicate it on my other development system ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So I don’t have the courage to post on to Puppy forum because I can’t compiled again if there’s a bug or special compile flag.

MMS run wonderfully on my system. I’ll try to make some screenshot on my system but I can’t promise to post my package until I’m pretty sure about it.

There’s a new RC release, 1.1.0 RC5, when I write this post. It’s bring some new exciting features that make MMS more interesting. Let see if I can compile it again on my system.

A new year with a new hope

Terus terang saya hampir lupa kalo punya blog ini ๐Ÿ™‚ Dalam 2 bulan terakhir ini banyak yang terjadi dalam kehidupanku. A new decision, carrier and a new love is all I think about in the past 2 month.

Tapi aku masih tetap menjalankan hobby ku kok. Infact, I finished my 2nd “PC on a plastic box” project. This time I’m using a left over P3 mobo from my office paired with an old VIA C3 800 Mhz processor that I bought for Rp. 20.000,- only. So it’s not so small like my first Mini-ITX mobo but it’s quite since it’s all fanless now. For the OS, I stick with PuppyLinux since it’s small, fast and easy to configure. Saya sebenarnya sudah menulis pengalaman mencari distro linux yg kecil yg cukup diinstall
pada compact flash 512 MB but I always forget to post it. I’ll post ASAP.

For my OS journey, I’ve been trying various Puppy Linux derivate and the latest one is PCLinuxOS 2008 Mini Edition. I haven’t got time to play with it a bit deeper but my first impression is really great.

So, that’s what happen to me on the past 2 month and I hope good things will come in the year of 2008 ๐Ÿ™‚
