    Problem with the source code of PostgreSQL

    http://wwwmaster.postgresql.org/download/mirrors-ftp/source/v8.3.5/postgresql-8.3.5.tar.bz2 it's a tar.bz2...in win32 you have to unzip it twice (unless you're using something like 7zip) because win32's built-in zip is brain-dead.

    Post Your GNU/Linux Desktop here

    Mehulved is right...Gentoo Linux w/ 2.6.24 kernel. I've run OpenBSD before as my desktop (and it does a good job at that task, honestly), but my gigabit NIC in my home desktop is ummm..."twitchy" now, and OpenBSD (FreeBSD, too) refuses to play nicely with it (on Gentoo it bugs out from time to...

    Why bother with CVS/SVN for a project that literally has one developer? CVS and SVN are excellent at keeping track of changes (and who made them) so it's easier to work together as a team. Sure, on the client side it lets you update *just the files* that have been updated, but I maintain a...

    Obligatory MaxMind notice: "This product (GeoXPlanet) includes GeoLite data created by MaxMind, available from http://maxmind.com/" I got a response from MaxMind today. It seems the company determined that the vagueness of the GeoLiteCity database license (at least what I interpreted as...

    I don't see how that's possible (that people would say that), though many "computer people" are highly misunderstood =) Praka123: I'm upgrading on of my vmware images from etch to sid right now. I'll post more as I get the testing done.

    Ahh, I see. Thanks for pointing this out. I completely disable ipv6 on most of my machines, so I wouldn't have thought to check this. Thanks!

    I've seen quite a few images cropping up where traceroutes are resulting in a "hop" being placed off the coast of Africa. I'll dig into this tonight (after my Debian/Gnome testing) and see if I can figure out a cause. Screenshots look good, guys...let me know if any other major issues creep...

    You can overwrite temp/images/earth.jpg with whatever file you wish, and it will be used to draw the background (see http://xplanet.sourceforge.net/maps.php for a nice listing of maps). The North America split, though, I believe is caused by having your Monitor_0_latitude/longitude set to your...

    Umm, possibly...let me look into that =) Ok, I went ahead and uploaded GeoXPlanet-0.4.3 (without the MaxMind data). It should be available shortly.

    Monitor_0_projection=mercator is the setting you need in your GeoXPlanet.conf file (in the src dir). Rectangular works, too, and I linked a site with screenshots of the different values a few posts back...http://cweiske.de/xplanet-projections/ The templates aren't working yet (doh?). That's...

    The single line deal...what projection are you using? And is that single line going to the west coast of Africa (i.e. lat/long: 0, 0)? It's possible the lookups aren't working (causing the entire set to point to one spot near Africa), or it's possible that you've got Monitor_0_projection=None...

    Guys, hey...0.4.3 is sitting at the door waiting to come out. Thanks everyone for helping out with this project, by the way. I really appreciate it! Testing on Debian/Gnome...sure. I'll upload screenshots tonight, along with whatever I find. I don't really have the hardware for it, but I...
