+  <h2>Frugalware Linux Newsletter - Issue 55</h2>
+
+  <h2>...to inform...to educate...to entertain</h2>
+
+  <p>"Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent
+  life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact
+  us."&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>Calvin, from the popular American comic
+  series "Calvin and Hobbes".</em></p>
+
+  <h2>Welcome</h2>
+
+  <p>The newsletter's aim is to keep you up to date with what's happened
+  recently in the world of the Linux distribution 'Frugalware'.</p>
+
+  <p>Features of this issue include:</p>
+
+  <ul>
+    <li>The wiki is back!</li>
+
+    <li>Happy birthday to Devil505</li>
+
+    <li>FLOSS developers are people too</li>
+
+    <li>Let's all go to Monaco</li>
+
+    <li>Getting to know you - Dependencies</li>
+  </ul>
+
+  <h2>Events</h2>
+
+  <p>Here's a selection of events which have occurred since the previous
+  newsletter:</p>
+
+  <ul>
+    <li>
+      <h3>Gimmix is upgraded</h3>
+
+      <p>Priyank recently packaged a newer version of Gimmix, a GTK-based MPD
+      client. It's light on resources but has a great range of features. Gimmix
+      is rather special because Priyank is its developer as well as the
+      maintainer of its package. After all, who knows a baby better than its
+      father or mother? If you want a GUI MPD client, please try it.</p>
+    </li>
+
+    <li>
+      <h3>The wiki is back!</h3>
+
+      <p>As I reported in newsletter issue 53, the Frugalware wiki
+      unfortunately went offline weeks ago. The original wiki was lost, but
+      it's contents had been backed up by VMiklos. To restore the wiki required
+      a new installation, review of content and copying all content into the
+      new wiki, all done by VMiklos, Bouleetbil and Devil505. Many thanks to
+      them for their work. When I last checked, the wiki had a total 1,025
+      pages from 12 contributors.</p>
+
+      <p>The <a href="http://wiki.frugalware.org/";>Frugalware wiki</a> - also
+      known as "FrugalWiki" - is based on MediaWiki, the wiki platform used by
+      the famous Wikipedia, as well as other sites. Frugalware is used by
+      people from many countries - and we're proud of that - and this means we
+      need a multi-language wiki. MediaWiki doesn't allow wiki pages with the
+      same titles, so how can we have pages on the same topic in different
+      languages? Our answer is to include a reference to the language in the
+      title page. For details of this and other rules for editing the wiki,
+      please refer to the <a href=
+      
"http://wiki.frugalware.org/index.php/FrugalWiki_Tutorial_(English)">FrugalWiki
+      tutorial</a>.</p>
+    </li>
+
+    <li>
+      <h3>Happy birthday to Devil505</h3>
+
+      <p>Devil505 recently celebrated his 2nd birthday. "What!?", I hear you
+      say. "Do we really have a developer who is 2 years old? The answer is,
+      "Yes" and "No". I'm quite certain Devil505 is not 2 years old in real
+      life, although I don't know his real age. I do know that 2 years ago, he
+      was accepted into the Frugalware developer team. He's made a great
+      contribution to Frugalware over that time, helping not only by packaging
+      applications (mostly <em>games</em>), but also community activities, such
+      as the wiki and the artwork team. Congratulations, Devil505, and we look
+      forward to a lifetime of Frugalware-ing. That's right - one you're "in",
+      you're in for life!</p>
+
+      <p>To all other developers, I apologise. I promise I'll find out your
+      Frugalware birthday, mark it on the calendar, and mention it in the
+      newsletter.</p>
+    </li>
+
+    <li>
+      <h3>What difference does two characters make?</h3>
+
+      <p>If you subscribe to the #frugalware group's messages on Identi.ca, you
+      will often have seen URLs which have been shortened by the bit.ly
+      service. Like other URL shortening services, it takes a "normal" URL and
+      converts this into a short URL. When you click on the shortened version,
+      bit.ly redirects your web browser to the full URL. These services exist
+      for at least two reasons: (1) it's easier to communicate a short URL, and
+      (2) it's easier to fit a short URL into the 140-character limit of web
+      services like identi.ca and Twitter. In an interesting move, bit.ly now
+      has a new name - j.mp. Both services will remain active, but the j.mp
+      domain name is to eventually replace the bit.ly domain name. If I
+      understand correctly, the change of domain name was made so that URLs
+      were shortened by 2 characters. I can understand the change, but wow -
+      just two characters? I don't know when or if we will switch to the j.mp
+      domain name. Keep watching, though.</p>
+    </li>
+
+    <li>
+      <h3>Could all big games please put their hand up?</h3>
+
+      <p>After a discussion amongst the Frugalware developers, it has been
+      decided that all games which are bigger than 100 MB will no longer be
+      available directly from the repository. Instead they will be "nobuild"
+      packages, which means that they will be installed using 'repoman' instead
+      of pacman-g2. There were several reasons for this change, the major ones
+      being:</p>
+
+      <ul>
+        <li>reducing the amount of disk space required by each release - on the
+        release ISOs and the build servers;</li>
+
+        <li>reducing the amount of time taken in checking daily the integrity
+        of the packages' files.</li>
+      </ul>
+    </li>
+  </ul>
+
+  <h2>Getting To Know You</h2>
+
+  <h3>Dependencies</h3>
+
+  <p>Everyone has dependencies - food, sleep, caffeine. Frugalware's packages
+  also have dependencies, although caffeine isn't one of them, thankfully.
+  Applications written to the GTK toolkit are dependent upon it. Applications
+  written to the Qt toolkit are dependent upon it. Each package's dependencies
+  are detailed in its FrugalBuild and can be either build or runtime
+  dependencies. You might have looked at a package's dependency list, found
+  just one package listed, then wondered why many packages were installed when
+  you issued the command "pacman -S [package_name]". It was because the
+  package's dependencies also had dependencies and so these also had to be
+  installed.</p>
+
+  <p>You might have heard of the term "dependency hell". This is a problem
+  where you can't install both packages A and B because they have conflicting
+  dependencies. Frugalware does its best to avoid the chance of this occurring
+  because a package cannot be built if its dependencies can't be met. The
+  reverse of dependencies are those cases where packages may conflict and so
+  can't co-exist. Again such conflicts are detailed in the package's
+  FrugalBuild and pacman-g2 won't allow a package to be installed if it
+  conflicts with another. A variation of package conflict is where a package
+  replaces another one. The official NVidia driver packages, for example,
+  contain their own GL libraries and so replace the functionality of the LIBGLX
+  and LIBGL packages. When you install one of the nvidia driver packages, you
+  are told about this and asked if you want to continue. If you answer "Yes",
+  pacman-g2 will install the NVidia package and remove the other packages,
+  avoiding any conflict been libraries that have the same functionality.</p>
+
+  <p>pacman-g2 is very intelligent, but this "intelligence" is based on
+  information contained in each package's FrugalBuild. Therefore pacman-g2 can
+  never be <strong>more</strong> intelligent than the developers. That's a good
+  thing when you think about it, because otherwise we could be in a situation
+  like that of Dave in "2001: A Space Odyssey":</p>
+  <pre>
+        User: pacman-g2 -S tetris
+        pacman-g2: I'm sorry, Dave, but I can't do that. You shouldn't be 
playing games.
+</pre>
+
+  <h2>FLOSS developers are people too</h2>
+
+  <p>Without developers, we wouldn't have the Linux kernel and all the software
+  that we run on the platform. What motivates FLOSS developers? Why does anyone
+  choose to spend their time writing software when they don't get paid to do
+  so? What do developers do when they're not writing software? These questions
+  and more are the inspiration behind this new section of the newsletter.</p>
+
+  <p>In interviews with FLOSS developers, we get to know them a little better
+  as people, and what motivates them in their quest for better software. I'm
+  very excited by this new series because I admire their work very much. I'm
+  also very grateful to them for taking the time to reply to my requests.</p>
+
+  <p>Interviews in the next few issues will feature:</p>
+
+  <ul>
+    <li>The developer of Code Browser;</li>
+
+    <li>Jeff Bailes - developer of Whaaw! Media Player;</li>
+
+    <li>Ali Abdallah - Xfce developer &amp; Parole developer;</li>
+
+    <li>Jesse van den Kieboom - gedit developer.</li>
+  </ul>
+
+  <p>This issue, we have an interview with Michael Cornelius - developer of
+  fotoxx, UKopp, picpuz and much more. I think Michael has a very interesting
+  story to tell and I hope you enjoy reading it. As a native English-language
+  speaker, I can honestly say that the quality of Michael's writing is better
+  than mine. I wonder if I could persuade him to write for the newsletter?
+  :)</p>
+

+    <dt><strong>What's your name?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>Michael Cornelison. I am a retired American living in Germany with a
+      German wife.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What FLOSS projects are you involved in?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>I write code only for the projects on my web site. I contribute bug
+      reports to other projects, esp. Ubuntu and Gnome. I sometimes write in
+      web forums, but this is minor.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What led to you being a FLOSS
+    developer/contributor?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>I became aware of the FLOSS movement in 2006 and got interested. "The
+      Cathedral and the Bazaar" was influential. Before that I had written
+      software for Windows and DEC VAX (now HP) mainframes. The low ethics of
+      Microsoft has long been a problem for me. I wanted a low-cost and open
+      development environment for myself, and I wanted something to keep me
+      busy and productive during my retirement. I am now 66.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What do you like about being a FLOSS
+    developer/contributor?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>The openness, freedom, collaborative nature, abundance of people who
+      are ready to help and contribute. I like the mission: provide free and
+      open software for the world to use and benefit from.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What don't you like about being a FLOSS
+    developer/contributor?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>I recently wrote an essay summarizing my opinions on Linux and the
+      FLOSS movement, "Enduring Roadblocks to Linux Acceptance". It was
+      published a few weeks ago in Linux Forums: <a href=
+      
"http://www.linuxforums.org/articles/enduring-roadblocks-to-linux-acceptance_417.html";>
+      
http://www.linuxforums.org/articles/enduring-roadblocks-to-linux-acceptance_417.html</a></p>
+
+      <p>It is also on my web site: <a href=
+      
"http://kornelix.squarespace.com/linux-opinion/";>http://kornelix.squarespace.com/linux-opinion/</a>.</p>
+
+      <p>Please read the essay (3 minutes). In short: I dislike the chaos, lack
+      of standards, lack of planning, redundant/competing technologies, the
+      sometimes poor quality of code and documentation. I did not mention
+      another factor in the above essay: the elitism and condescending attitude
+      of some FLOSS heavyweights. When I was starting out and trying to find my
+      way in web forums, I got put down for being an ignorant newbie. This
+      problem seems to be diminishing over time (are the heavyweights becoming
+      less elitist?).</p>

+    <dt><strong>What motivates you to work on your projects?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>Technical interest and a desire to provide useful tools for
+      others.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What do you do outside the FLOSS world?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>Since retiring, my wife and I have done extensive traveling and I have
+      focused on photography. Other than that, it is a fairly normal life of
+      socializing with friends, reading, watching films, etc. I help others
+      with computer problems, both Windows and Linux. I have persuaded a few
+      friends to convert to Linux - their main concern being malware and the
+      lack of security with Windows.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>What operating system(s) do you use and why?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>I use only Linux. I keep Windows up to date in order to stay current
+      and be able to help others.</p>
+    </dd>
+
+    <dt><strong>If people are interested in helping your project(s), how might
+    they do this?</strong></dt>
+
+    <dd>
+      <p>My e-mail address is published on my web site and in the user guides
+      that come with my programs. I encourage others to pass on their bug
+      reports or ideas for improvement. I have gotten many ideas this way. I
+      have also gotten several GUI translations for fotoxx and some other
+      programs from complete strangers. The user guide for fotoxx has only been
+      translated into French, and that has not been kept up to date. It is
+      large and would require several days of work to translate, so it is
+      understandable that no one volunteers. Unfortunately, the technical
+      computer world is not very open for those without good English.</p>

+  <h2>Tips and tricks</h2>
+
+  <p><b>Disclaimer</b> - Be aware that the hints &amp; tips provided here have
+  NOT been tested and so come with no warranty.</p>
+
+  <h3>Keyboard or mouse?</h3>
+
+  <p>The combination of keyboard and mouse as input for PCs is not very
+  efficient, but it's the best we have at the moment. You can often improve
+  your efficiency if you learn the keyboard shortcuts of your favourite
+  applications. Many applications have cheat sheets available, which are
+  one-page handy references of features and functions, including keyboard
+  shortcuts. If you keep one of these near your PC, it makes the task of
+  learning a little easier.</p>
+
+  <h3>What's your status? (in 140 characters or less)</h3>
+
+  <p>Microblogging services like Twitter and identi.ca are a great way of
+  getting a brief message to one person, or many people. It's most often used
+  for communicating personal messages, but it's also an excellent way of
+  sending non-personal messages, such as the status of services. For example,
+  you might set up automated monitoring which tells subscribers of a server's
+  status changes. People who want to receive these messages subscribe (or
+  "listen") to the group. Using a method like this, you don't have to maintain
+  a list of people to be notified of messages, which could quickly be out of
+  date. Of course the microblogging service identi.ca is recommended over
+  Twitter because identi.ca is licensed under the <a href=
+  "http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/agpl-3.0.html";>GNU Affero General
+  Public License (AGPL)</a>.</p>
+
+  <p>This section relies on your contributions! If have some tips and tricks
+  that you would like to be shown in the newsletter, <em>please</em> post them
+  on the forums.</p>
+
+  <h2>Focus On Package(s)</h2>
+
+  <h3>Everyone... start your engines...3...2...1...go!</h3>
+
+  <p>In keeping with his unofficial title as "The Games Master", Frugalware
+  developer Devil505 has added a new game to the current repository. "<a href=
+  "http://vdrift.net/";>VDrift</a> is a cross-platform, open source driving
+  simulation made with drift racing in mind.</p>
+
+  <p>"This game is in the early stages of development but is already very
+  playable. Currently the game features:</p>
+
+  <ul>
+    <li>Over 20 tracks, almost 30 cars;</li>
+
+    <li>Simple networked multi-player mode (currently disabled, waiting to be
+    rewritten);</li>
+
+    <li>Very realistic physics;</li>
+
+    <li>Mouse/joystick/gamepad/wheel/keyboard support;</li>
+
+    <li>Fully modeled tracks, scenery and terrain;</li>
+
+    <li>Several different camera modes".</li>
+  </ul>
+
+  <p>If you have ever felt the need... the need for speed, then you should try
+  VDrift.</p><a href=
+  "http://frugalware.org/images/newsletter/issue55_vdrift_screenshot.jpg";><img 
src="http://frugalware.org/images/newsletter/issue55_vdrift_screenshot_t.jpg";
+  alt="Screenshot of VDrift"></a>
+
+  <h3>Let's all go to Monaco</h3>
+
+  <p>Frugalware contributor Laszlo Papp recently submitted a FrugalBuild for a
+  monospace font named Monaco. It's commonly used on the Mac platform as the
+  default monospace font, but it fits just as well on Linux. It's a little
+  different to most monospace fonts because it has serifs. If you're not quite
+  happy with your current monospace font, please try Monaco. Visiting the city
+  of the same name might be more fun, but you would probably just lose a lot of
+  money.</p>
+
+  <h3>The Widget Factory</h3>
+
+  <p>For anyone who, like me, loves to try out GTK themes, <a href=
+  "http://www.stellingwerff.com/?page_id=10";>The Widget Factory</a> is
+  something you should have installed. It's a simple GTK-based application
+  which consists of all the available GTK components. Via the menu you can
+  select an installed GTK theme and The Widget Factory then has the selected
+  theme applied. It's only purpose is to allow you to preview GTK themes.</p>
+
+  <h2>Bug fixes</h2>

+  <h2>Security announcements</h2>
+
+  <p><b>Remember</b> - According to the normal support arrangements for
+  Frugalware, the release of 1.1 ("Getorin") means that no further security or
+  bug fixes will be released for Frugalware 1.0 ("Anacreon") or earlier
+  releases.</p>
+
+  <p>Here is a list of <a href="/security">security issues</a> which have been
+  discovered and fixed in the 1.1 release since the previous newsletter.</p>
+
+  <p><strong>None</strong></p>
+
