MeeGo 1.1 on HP Mini 110

A couple weeks ago, a friend asked me to install a Linux OS on her HP mini netbook.

At first, Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10 was automatically poped-up in my mind. But after testing it’s live usb version, I choose not to install it. The UI often suffers from serious lags to the point where it no longer acceptable for me

The next OS I look at is MeeGo. I’ve heard from friends that it’s a nice OS for netbook.

Tested the live usb version and it looks great. But, after googling around about MeeGo installation on netbook, i’ve found out that it would take a lot of manual setup after the installation proces.

The installation process itself is quite brief. but the next customization took me hours to complete. The installation process is quite similar to Ubuntu’s installation process.

Setting Up PushButton Engine with Eclipse 3.5 (Galilleo) and AXDT

Since last week, I’m trying to learn ActionScript 3 (AS3) language to create a game.

I use Linux as development platform, and there’s not much IDE available for AS3 for Linux. FlashDevelop for linux is still in the middle of development last time I check. And I don’t want to use Adobe Flash IDE on Linux using wine. There is a FlexBuilder for linux from Adobe site, but that project is still in alpha 4 stage since last year, I’ve tried it but I think I’ll stick with AXDT for now.

After looking in the net for a good editor for AS3, i found OSFlash website. And from reading that site, I found out that there’s a good plugin for Eclipse IDE called ASDT, which only support AS2 development not AS3. Luckily, that project is now evolved into AXDT which give a full support for AS3 development within Eclipse IDE.

So, my next step is finding a good game engine for me to use. After googling for a while, I want to try using PushButton engine. There’s a nice tutorial to set it up using Eclipse and Adobe FlexBuilder though, but that tutorial is for Windows and I’m failed at implementing that tutorial in Linux. Probably I’ve some how made a mistake when following that tutorial. Read the rest of this entry

Show Us The Code

Sebenernya ini berita lama kali ya… cuma gw baru baca2 lagi akhir2 ini.



Cerita ini berawal dari penandatanganan kerjasama yang sempat menghebohkan dunia IT beberapa bulan lalu. Kerjasama antara M$ ama Novell yang punya SUSE Linux.



Nah, setelah itu beberapa kali Steve Balmer salah satu petinggi M$ yang dengan indahnya ngomong kalo di suatu tempat di dalam source code Linux ada source code punya M$ (read this).



Nah, baru tadi gw nemu sebuah situs (http://showusthecode.com) yang isinya meminta Balmer membuktikan ucapannya itu. Dan gak tanggung-tanggung, pemilik situs itu udah minta dukungan dari beberapa dedengkot dunia FOSS seperti Richard Stallman dan Linus Torvalds.



Di situs itu, disebutkan kalo sampai tanggal 1 Mei 2007 nanti Balmer atau M$ tidak mau menunjukkan source code yg dimaksud. Maka bisa dianggap semua omongan Balmer itu omong kosong.



Nah.. kalo lo mau ngasih dukungan juga untuk gerakan itu. Lo bisa posting comment di blog http://showusthecode.wordpress.com/petition-for-linux-users.



Koleksi WARKOP

Gara-gara temen gw yang sering download rekaman lawak dari beberapa pelawak. Akhirnya gw penasaran juga pengen download lawaknya Warkop DKI kalo ada.

Setelah googling kesana kemari akhirnya gw dapet di http://www.irwan.net/content/view/89/.

Gw edit posting gw soal upload ke GU karena semua upload gw dah ilang :p

Beryl & Swing Issue

Hari ini karena penasaran waktu baca posting di milis netbeans-indonesia kalau issue masalah Swing dan Beryl belum ada pemecahannya (tetapi compiz & Swing sudah ada pemecahannya), gw coba googling buat cari pemecahan masalah ini.

Dan akhirnya gw nemu URL berikut ini :

http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/Java

Wah, setelah baca itu gw ngerasa ada sedikit harapan. Tapi cukup merepotkan juga caranya… soalnya harus compile ulang Java (which I never done before), ya untungnya yang di compile gak semua file-nya (^_^)

Akhirnya baru saja gw coba download source code dan apply patch yg disebutkan di situs itu.


Akhirnya, bisa juga gw buka NB sambil tetap berada di Beryl \(^0^)/

Tapi, gw cuma bisa bilang ini temporarily solved karena ini patch bukan asli dari tim JDK.

http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6509038

Dan sepertinya mungkin masih lama waktunya sampai kita bisa menjalankan Swing di atas Beryl tanpa perlu patching (T_T)

Well any how, gw cukup seneng bisa nemu pemecahan masalah ini. Gw jarang juga update JDK…

now… Happy Netbeaning… in Beryl…. hehehehehe….
