    • Navigation and arabization

Arabeyes party !

We've invited a number of key developers, movers and shakers in the open source Arabic arena to hear them talk (a Question and Answer session to follow).

The event will be full of stars from Mandrake, Trolltech/QT, Gnome, Wine, OpenOffice, Debian-boot and Arabeyes. And ofcourse some Arabic LUGs like Lebanon LUG and Saudi LUG.

Eglug will have a 30 minutes presentation too and Q&A space for us on 1600 -> 1630 (Cairo Time)

phaeronix installed in SAKIA!

Now you can test the first from scratch egyptian distro brought to you by true eglug veteran phaeronix. Okay maybe not veteran. But IT IS installed there go and find it in one or two of the boot menus, boot it and try it.

Then drop me message saying if you liked it, or it was bad etc...

Remember it's still beta, and oh don't try urpmi, apt-get or any other auto stuff, cuz there just ain't any. If you know hoe to compile the source, if you don't tell me and I'll see what can I do.

Debugging session.

Today I was forced to give the debugging session at the sakia. I had come prepared to help Mohammed Sameer in presenting the session but I was not prepared to give the whole session on my own.

I used Mohammed Sameer's openbox patch to demonstrate a bug and it's story from reporting to fixing, and fixing of the fix ( my modification of the patch )

I hoped that someone good in using gdb or strace would show up, but it didn't happen so I postponed it to the next session.

I hope the people who attended were at least partially satisfied with what they heard ( and maybe learnt ).
