I think I'll go for a walk, maybe out in the rain

I hope that I've built my last security update for Woody now. If so I'm going to metaphorically burn my Qemu image of Woody.

Talking of Qemu I have to say it rocks! Except under Xen. I've had a lot of problems recently using Qemus serial-port pass-through under Xen.

Using Qemu on a native kernel I can use "-serial /dev/ttyS0", and then get the Windows 2000 installation + communication software I have to talk to my mobile phone. Under Xen the communication only works one-way as far as I can see the software will talk to the phone, but the phone cannot respond.


I made a couple of Debian uploads last night to update the packages to the latest Standards Version, including fixing a trivial bug which was almost a year old which I'd completely failed to spot. I can't believe I missed it for so long.

All being well I'll make some more trivial-update uploads shortly to ensure that I don't have any suprises before the Etch freeze.
