[Gentoo] More updates. Ah, so exciting.

I spent some time today fixing science and cluster bugs. If it’s anything in either of those herds that I touch, it’s probably fixed: lam-mpi, pvm, pssh, clusterssh, mpqc, opendx, moldy, grace, gnuplot, pdflib … plus a couple of X things.

Grant, hope you don’t mind that I added a patch to gnuplot. Some guy filed a bug saying it didn’t compile against pdflib 6.0, which wasn’t even in the tree. That motivated me to go dig out the patch and to add the new version of pdflib. As a result of pdflib 6.0, I also had to bump grace to a version that worked with it.

Am I a journalist?

Good question. I saw this on O’Reilly’s Radar, which is a collection of blogs well worth reading.

[Gentoo] Clean out your bugz email

Mark McLoughlin wrote an awesome Evo plugin to clean out bugzilla email for resolved bugs.

But it won’t build yet on Gentoo apparently, according to the comments, because some headers aren’t installed.

In other news, I threw in a bunch of xorg updates last night. So if you’ve been waiting for something, it might be done.
